Nothing of the plot is in evidence here, with the trailer instead opting for a series of shots from the film plus a roll call of the players. And, as we all know, we're really just in it for the people involved, which in this case involves Expendables veterans Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Jet Li, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren joined by such new franchise arrivals as Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, Mel Gibson, Kellan Lutz, Harrison Ford and Ronda Rousey.
The Expendables 3 finds our heroes targeted by an old friend turned vicious enemy. Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who co-founded the original core group with Stallone's Barney Ross, has since become an arms trader and decides to take out the gang. So they have to recruit some new blood to fight an old-school threat. Most intriguingly, the trailer says this will be their 'last ride' suggesting plans to bow out after this one.
The Expendables 3 arrives on our screens 15 August.
