Today, Millenium Films released the first full length trailer for Sylvester Stallone's high octane ensemble action extravaganza, 'Expendables 3'. This is our first glimpse at the storyline and which actors have been cast as heroes and villains. 

Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas, previously starring with 'Sly' in 'Demolition Man' and 'Assassins' respectively, are clearly allies of the Expendables team. Both actors show great chemistry with the rest of the team and are definitely welcome additions to 'The Expendables'. We see Harrison Ford have a couple lines of dialogue with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jet Li. The verdict is still out on Fords intigration as a member of 'The Expendables', as what we have seen so far has lacked luster. However, teasing Jet Li about his height may lead to some 'short-round' references which will make Ford's presence well worth it.

Fallen film icon, Mel Gibson, is clearly the unstoppable foe in the 3rd installment of the franchise. No matter your opinion of the man, his high quality acting chops are a refreshing upgrade from those of Jean-Claude Van Damme in 'The Expendables 2' and especially of David Zayas and Eric Roberts in the franchises 1st installment. Gibson appears to be a former ally of Stallone's and even a founding member of 'The Expendables'. Though we still don't know Gibson's motivation or why he is now on the dark side, it feels like his character is bringing some much needed story to the franchise.

Tertiary roles played by Kellan Lutz and Ronda Rousey, as well as Kelsey Grammar's role, have not been explored much and ikely won't until we actually see the film. Overall this movie looks so awesome, you don't even notice the absence of Bruce Willis.
