What this trailer lacks in actual action it makes up for in the sheer power of name recognition: Stallone, Statham, Li, Schwarzenegger, Banderas, Snipes, Gibson, Ford, and so on, and so on, forever and ever.
Set to the “Colonel Bogey March,” you’ve got to admit, this 56-second trailer packs a punch, and most of it is just a bunch of jacked dudes’ backs. Like Ocean’s Thirteen before it, an already stacked cast continues to expand exponentially in this third Expendables installment. You won’t find many plot clues in the trailer below, but given that it was only just filmed this summer, they’re moving along at a pretty steady pace.
The Expendables 3 is set to premiere Aug. 15, 2014.
