The special effects and the cast look amazing in this trailer. I wasn’t a fan of the original Mad Max movie, but I’m thinking I might enjoy seeing this one with my husband while it’s in theaters.

The Expendables 3, The Cast, The Excitement & Will They Make A Fourth?

The cast at Cannes 2014

Cannes_2014_2

Fans of gray-haired action franchise The Expendables should be able to see the third in the series by the time they read this. It’s been released in London and is due to hit theaters in the US on August 15th. The cast is amazing, adding to the line-ups from the first two – I can’t wait to see it!

Cast
Personally, I found that The Expendables 2 was great fun, I’m a big fan of exploding movies. The original movie from 2010 was built on nicely, with bigger and better explosions and funnier dialog. Bringing even more muscle – the third installment has Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and Antonio Banderas joining existing cast members Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li.

Excitement

There are a huge number of explosions of course, kicking off shortly after our aging heroes meet up with Mel Gibson’s character, Conrad Stonebanks, an arms dealer who likes to hide out in the deserted shell of a casino in some unspecified third world country. Early reviews suggest that, despite all the shoot-ups and effects, you might be better off playing a few hands of Blackjack in an online casino like GamingClub.com, (Mel Gibson certainly could have done with a little practice there, maybe he wouldn’t have run out of cash when he visited a Casino in Vegas a while back) than wading through this movie, if it’s a raised heart- rate you’re looking for – though if you’re as old as the average age of the cast that’s probably not such a great idea.

Early Reviews

The rumours from across the Atlantic are that the joke The Expendables is based on is beginning to wear a little thin. It seems that cramming another bunch of retirement-age action heroes onto the screen has been subject to the Law Of Diminishing returns. Stallone’s co-written screenplay gives each star more or less equal screen time, but given the sheer number of them, it does tend to interfere with the smooth unfolding of the plot.

Injuries

The theme of the movie, broadly speaking, is the teaming up of old and young, as the veteran members join up with the youngsters to defeat the evil Stone banks. Both older and younger cast members got into trouble while filming; Jason Statham found himself hurtling towards a 50 foot drop into the Black Sea when the brakes failed on his truck, only managing to survive by diving out of the open door. Stallone was injured as well, after an on-set fall left him with a metal plate in his back.

A fourth movie

It seems that whether you’ll want to see The Expendables 3 will depend mostly on how much you enjoyed the last two, and how much you want to see all those older guys on screen together. I have to say I’m actually looking forward to it; I’m expecting it to be cheesy, I’m expecting it to be pretty exciting, and I’m also expecting to be entertained. But, will they make a fourth?

“Into the Woods” teaser trailer & first film images #IntoTheWoods

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Fun new movie posters, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day #VeryBadDay

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.
