While Stallone may be perfectly comfortable selling himself out, his accomplices on this latest jokey saga seem to have tackled their ludicrous material with varying degrees of seriousness – and as this ranked rundown details, also with varying degrees of embarrassment. Ahead, of the established stars, we rank from least to most who we feel the most embarrassed for that he (all hes!) is in 'The Expendables 3.'
As we gear up for the Toronto International Film Festival, once again, more titles have been announced to make debuts at the big event up north, including Arnold Schwarzenegger's zombie movie, 'Maggie.' In addition to the announcement, the first official photos from the film have hit the web, showing the softer side of the zombie apocalypse.
Where 'Fantastic Four' and 'Jurassic Park 4' recently wrapped up principal photography, Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to reveal that he too has finished work on his upcoming project, 'Terminator 5.' But, while he did have some kind words for his fellow cast mates and the fans, his photo update revealed that we've all been wrong about what the fifth movie is called!
Released in 1988, Ivan Reitman's 'Twins' starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as a pair of unlikely twins who were separated at birth: streetwise wannabe criminal Vincent (DeVito) and imposing intellectual Julius (Schwarzenegger), who must reconcile their differences while Julius helps Vincent get out of a jam. The film was a major hit, inspiring the pair to reunite a year later for another Reitman comedy, 'Junior.' Now, 26 years later, we revisit the cast of this comedy classic and see what they're up to these days.
'Predator' is not only one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best movies, it's one of the best sci-fi/action movies of all time, putting the musclebound action hero up against an unstoppable alien hunter. The design of the Predator is so iconic and the overall film's reputation so strong that many people don't realize that this was originally a very different movie. So different that Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally supposed to play the alien bad guy!
Call us suckers, but going by the new trailer for 'The Expendables 3,' we think this may be the one that finally gets it right. Both 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' were well-meaning but sloppy nostalgia exercises, but we're hoping that the third time is the charm and that this one will be a well-meaning and actually entertaining nostalgia exercise.
The 'Expendables' franchise has one thing going for it: nothing else can top it when it comes to the sheer number of interesting and noteworthy actors on screen. So it's not too surprising when 'The Expendables 3' drops 16 character posters on the same day because of course 'The Expendables 3' would have 16 characters important enough to warrant their own character posters.
If it bleeds, we can kill it. You'll be able to put that line to the test as The Predator becomes available in 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' as part of the new "Devastation Map Pack" released by Infinity Ward.
In the Drug Enforcement Administration of 'Sabotage,' there's an elite task force comprised of douchebags, jackasses, bullies and morally reprehensible goons. They're thrown the tough assignments; When a drug cartel kingpin needs to be brought to justice, John Breacher (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his crew of hot-tempered, maladjusted soldiers storm his suburban fortress, pop two in his head, and beeline to the nearest dive bar for one-dollar Budweisers. When an unknown assailant starts picking them off one-by-one, it's hard to feel too bad for the band of brosefs.
With Arnold returning to the screen with 'Sabotage,' it's time to revisit his career. It's time to reevaluate the bombs and celebrate the classics. It's time to rank all of Schwarzenegger's films from worst to best.
