Is it wrong I have yet to see any of The Expendables franchise? We're on the 3rd feature which hits cinemas on August 15th 2014 and I've still yet to see the first two films (despite owning them both!). I'm of the generation that grew up of films like Robocop, Drop Zone, Timecop, Judge Dredd, Last Action Hero, Conan and a whole host more memorable action films that really didn't have story but they did have entertainment by the bucket load!

Check out these new stills from The Expendables 3... more honest than any airbrushed posters :)

In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kellan Lutz, Antonio Banderas and Kelsey Grammer
