Get Fired Up


In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come 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.

About the Film

The most star-powered film franchise in history raises the bar to unprecedented heights with a dream team of global superstars, explosive stunts and mind-boggling weaponry in The Expendables 3. For the first time on film, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham join forces with Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford and 11 more legends and rising stars in an epic adventure that introduces audiences to a new generation of Expendables.

An assignment to stop a powerful weapon from falling into the wrong hands ends in a shocking turn of events for Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his crack team of mercenaries, known as The Expendables. They discover that the ruthless arms dealer they are pursuing is none other than Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson)--Barney's former partner and Expendables' co-founder, and a man he thought he had killed more than a decade earlier.

After an explosive firefight, Stonebanks escapes unscathed, and veteran Expendable Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) is almost killed, forcing Barney to make a momentous decision. He retires his longtime crew and recruits a group of youthful hotshots (Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Glen Powell, and Victor Ortiz) to bring fresh energy and updated skills to the team.

The conflict turns personal when Max Drummer (Harrison Ford) of the CIA dispatches the new team to bring Stonebanks to justice and the wily weapons smuggler makes it his mission to destroy The Expendables--including his former partner. When the intricate operation goes awry and the new team is captured, Barney embarks on a no-holds-barred rescue effort, aided by his comrades-in-arms, Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Galgo (Antonio Banderas), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Doctor Death (Wesley Snipes), Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Trench Mauser (Arnold Schwarzenegger).

Classic old-school tactics meet high-tech expertise as the combined teams battle to survive an epic onslaught by Stonebanks' militia in the most spectacular chapter to date of the blockbuster film franchise.
