The Expendables

  1. Sigourney Weaver Will Not Star In Expendabelles, Stallone Debates Casting “Women Actresses Together”

    R.I.P. (ley), ideal fan casting.

    Bad news and good news, friends: Our Lady Of Perpetual Ass-Kickery, Sigourney Weaver, has turned down a role in the female-centric Expendables spinoff The ExpendaBelles. The good news, of course, is that approaching Weaver demonstrates the project's creative team knows BAMFs when they see 'em--and that the movie is still actually happening.

  2. Sharknado’s Studio Is Releasing An Expendables-Type Movie With All-Female Leads [VIDEO]

    But will there be at least one scene where two women talk about more than sharks?

    Yes, if I could hand-pick the production company I'd most like to see do an Expendables-style movie with an all-female cast, it wouldn't be the studio responsible for Sharknado 2, Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark or Nazis at the Center of the Earth. But let's not look a gift movie in the mouth.

  4. Harrison Ford Will Be In The Expendables 3, But Bruce Willis Won’t Be

    "It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage."

    If you're not following Sylvester Stallone's Twitter then you have a problem, because tweets sound amazing if you read them in Sylvester Stallone's voice. But more than that, Stallone revealed some amazing news yesterday: Harrison Ford will join the cast of The Expendables 3 for some old-fashioned (pun intended) ass-kicking action.

  5. Is Milla Jovovich Getting Ready To Kick Butt In The Expendables 3?

  6. Katee Sackhoff Is Basically The Only Woman In Riddick And That Concerns Her Deeply

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    "I think the nerve-wracking part of it comes from being really one of the only women in the movie. There's some other women in the movie, but they're in the very, very, very beginning. There's nobody to take focus off of me, if I'm not good. That was my biggest fear. There's so many guys in the movie. They were all amazing. Every single one of those guys are phenomenal actors, and they really brought such life to their characters. But, when you're the only woman in most of the movie, there's a lot of pressure. If you're not good, everyone is like, 'Well, the girl sucked!' It's not like people can go, 'Which one?' The flipside of that is, if it succeeds, it's the other side of that. This is, by far, the biggest movie I've ever done. I'm incredibly excited, but I'm also really scared. So, we'll see." - Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackoff speaking to Collider about her role in the upcoming Riddick film. "I made a conscious effort to make her stronger than anyone I’ve ever played with very little, if no, vulnerability," she said of her character Dahl. "She’s just really, really strong.  If she has a vulnerability, you’re never going to see it." Sackhoff is also still attached to that lady Expendables-type film which she told them is still happening but slow moving at this point in the game.

  7. There’s A Sequel To Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Twins On The Way And That’s Not The Worst Part

    Your Stupid Minds! Stupid! Stupid!

    Apparently the news of this film came out earlier this year. We either didn't see it or we blacked out when we heard it. Either way, here we are. A sequel to the 1988 comedy Twins, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito is getting a sequel. The two leads will return. It will be called Triplets. Eddie Murphy will play their new lost brother from the same mother. Previously, it wasn't certain this was happening but now they've got a writer attached so prepare yourself in whatever way you feel necessary. I'm going to pull out my zombie apocalypse kit.

  8. Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Going To Play Conan The Barbarian Again

    The Human Machine

    Look, I'm just gonna say it. Someone needs to shoot Arnold Schwarzenegger with some elephant tranquilizers and give him an intervention. The 65-year-old actor is going to reprise his role as Conan the Barbarian in a new film. This is just...I have no words. No wait, I do. BY CROM!

  9. There’s a Second Female Expendables Movie in the Works. Called The ExpendaBelles. No, Really.

    Not a Misprint

    After finding themselves beaten to the punch by the Expendables-inspired action flick starring Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff, Millennium Films, the studio behind the original Expendables, has announced their own official spinoff about a team of female mercenaries… called The ExpendaBelles.

  12. Michelle Rodriguez Doesn’t Think She’s Done Enough Action Films To Be In A Female Expendables

    Oh Really?

    When we first heard an all-female Expendables type film was in the works, Michelle Rodriguez was one actress a lot of you said was a must-have. Rodriguez disagrees. She says she doesn't have enough action film experience under her belt yet to which we say, "ORLY?"

  14. Sylvester Stallone Blames the End of Action Movies on Superheroes, Which We Thought Were in Action Movies

    Oh Hollywood

    Sylvester Stallone is upset, you guys. Upset that action movies just aren't what they used to be. You know, back when men were men, and so were action movies. Now it's just a bunch of magic guys in tights who don't participate in any real action because their magic make it too easy. And that's not action. I mean, look at those freaking arms! Sylvester Stallone never let anyone do any CGI to him, I'll tell you that. But seriously, he said that action films are "fading away." Has he not been to the movies at all in recent years? Man, he's been working hard on Expendables 2, sequestered all the way up in that Tibetan mountain lodge, far away from civilization as we know it!

    • The Expendables Trailer: The Action Movie Singularity is Coming!

      Even with a trailer just released this afternoon, The Expendables still lends itself better to a wall of boldface cast list than to a synopsis: Namely, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, Randy Coutre, Danny Trejo, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger ... in short, it's a freakish, Singularity-like concordance of great action stars past and present, with a skew towards 'past.'

      As for the plot, it involves explosions and machine guns and evil foreigners and an unlikely team of "four and a half" (Jet Li: "not so funny!") combat-ready guys, so it seems like it'll be pretty hard to mess up. Trailer after the jump:
