Expendables 3 (2014)
Sylvester Stallone is at it again. He has gathered his Expendables for another go-round. The Expendables (2010) was good, The Expendables 2 (2012) was even better. Will this third time be the charm? The teaser trailer doesn’t reveal enough of anything, except for the fact that the boys are back and hopefully better than ever.
The movie was directed by Patrick Hughes and the noteworthy cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Kelsey Grammer, Randy Couture, and Robert Davi.
I especially like the addition of Gibson and Ford.
I think viewers will be in for an overload of blood, guts, and bullets.
The film is set to release on 08/15/14.
Redemption (2013) (also known as Hummingbird (2013))
Jason Statham has been stuck making a lot of very similar movies lately. Hummingbird seems slightly out of the norm for him. The movie looks like it has a little bit more of a story to it and a little bit more heart in it. Although I could be completely wrong, that is just what I gather from the preview.
A man (Statham) assumes a different man’s identity in order to hide from the law.
The movie is written and directed by Steven Knight.
I’m not sure that this movie would be worth seeing in the theatre. I’m also not sure if it will even get wide release in the U.S. or go straight to DVD. Either way, it looks like it would be worth seeing when it finally does come out on DVD.
I can’t find a U.S. release date on this one, but it is supposed to be sometime this year.
