Starting up the almighty action juggernaut that was The Expendables took a lot of time and a considerable explosives budget to make it to the screen, but 2010 finally saw some of the biggest names in the history of action cinema fill the screen. In 2012, when The Expendables 2 hit the big screen, it pulled in even more action heroes and TNT to blow merry hell out of cinemagoers everywhere. Now, in 2014, The Expendables 3 has such a formidable cast of action movie legends that they’d need to mobilise a goddamn army to haul all of the testosterone to theatres. And just to prove a point, when the stars recently hit Cannes, that’s pretty much exactly what they.
You may therefore think it a little unnecessary for something like The Expendables 3 to need to make any kind of big declarative statement of presence. But, by the very nature of the project, it should perhaps be taken that it is absolutely necessary for Team Expendables to storm in on the red carpet like a rolling thunder.
Cue the tanks.
