Mel Gibson saved 'The Expendables 3' from being a pumped up disaster.
The Expendables 3 isn't great -but you knew that already. It's essentially Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham shooting people's heads off, so it can't be good, but one little piece of inspired casting has ensured the movie will be at least filed under guilty pleasure, rather than utter disaster.
The cast of 'The Expendables 3'
In the team's third outing, Barney (Stallone) and Christmas (Statham) come head-to-head with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson) - the original founder of The Expendables who broke ranks and became a ruthless arms trader. In order to kill his former colleague, Barney must form a fresh team, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy.

The Expendables 3 holds its world premiere in London, as Bradley Cooper and Idris Elba shoot new films in the city. Trailers tease Bill Murray's St. Vincent, Tommy Lee Jones' new Western, Meryl Streep as a wicked witch and Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking...
The world premiere of The Expendables 3 took place this week in London, attended by Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz and Wesley Snipes. They had a great time entertaining fans and the press all day before the red carpet extravaganza on Leicester Square. The film opens globally next week. The Expendables 3 World Premiere [Pictures].
Bradley Cooper has also been spotted around London this week. He's in town shooting his new movie, a still-untitled project in which he plays a chef trying to set up the best restaurant in the world. In just the past week, photos have been snapped of him filming in Leicester Square, outside the Delauney, on the Southbank and on Waterloo Bridge.

All-female spin-off of popular franchise 'The Expendables' is set to start filming early next year
After months of rumours, it’s been confirmed that the all-female spin-off of movie franchise The Expendables is really going to happen, called The Expendabelles. Natch.
Sylvester Stallone revealed a few details about 'The Expendabelles'
At the premiere of The Expendables 3 in London, its star Sylvester Stallone confirmed that the project had been green-lit. Avi Lerner, producer of all three of The Expendables films so far, revealed that Robert Luketic, director of Legally Blonde, will helm the spin-off and begin filming in early 2015.

For his lively film directing debut, Mike Myers (aka Austin Powers) traces the remarkable life of his friend, the almost too-likeable music manager Shep Gordon. A mensch is a really nice guy, and this film documents how Gordon has created a makeshift family of loyal friends around him, even though he's never had a proper family of his own. It's an engaging movie that reminds audiences that the most important thing in life is certainly not fame.
Shep Gordon came to Los Angeles as a young man and happened to stay in the same hotel where Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison were hanging out. Quickly getting involved in their blurry world of drugs and money, Shep won over everyone he met simply because of his integrity and generosity. As a manager, he lived the high-life with high-powered girlfriends like Sharon Stone (who introduced him to Buddhism) and a Playboy Playmate wife. He helped Groucho Marx sort out his finances, and worked with lifelong pal Alice Cooper to create Cooper's iconic on-stage persona. And he's still considered one of the best fix-it men in the business. His home in Maui is a bolt-hole for any of his celebrity buddies who are trying to escape the limelight.
The film is assembled with a snappy rhythm that catches a sense of Shep's fast-paced lifestyle. It's packed with great film clips, hilarious home movies and even a few re-enactments. But the best stories are told by the starry interviewees who clearly adore Shep and recount riotous backstage anecdotes about their experiences with him, as well as his larger-than-life personality and unstoppable libido. The most jaw-dropping story is about how he ramped up clean-cut Canadian singer Anne Murray's reputation and career by having her photographed with super-cool lothario Teddy Pendergrass. But with a life this high-flying, Shep has never found a life partner or had his own children. Although he has become a father figure to his ex-wife's kids, essentially raising them himself.

Michael Buble goes backstage during the 'Rocky' Broadway run.
Michael Buble joined the cast of Broadway boxing musical 'Rocky' backstage at the Winter Garden Theatre in New York on Sunday (July 6th 2014).
Posing with some of the cast members in their costumes, Buble made sure he got photos with actors Andy Karl ('Legally Blonde', '9 to 5', 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood'), Terence Archie ('The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity') and Margo Seibert ('Tamar of the River'), who play the roles of Rocky Balboa, Apollo Creed and Adrian respectively.
The stage rendition of the classic movie series has been produced by Sylvester Stallone, who starred as the original Rocky in the movies telling the tale of a loan shark collector who rises to fame as a world champion heavyweight fighter.

With the American's in love with the beautiful game more than ever before, a remake of 'Escape to Victory' is being planned
‘Escape to Victory’ – or simply ‘Victory’ in U.S – captured two emotive subjects for Americans: war and sport. And now a remake is set to do the same, as Americans take soccer in to their hearts like never before with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The original, starring Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone, saw the Nazi's arrogance manifest in a Germany v P.O.W football match, with the controlling force assuming it had the game won – an opportunity to embarrass those they had living under horrible conditions.
Shep Gordon may not be as famous as some of the biggest celebrities in the world, but you can bet they count him among their closest friends. A popular Jewish music manager who took on the career after meeting Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Shep's first subject was shock rocker Alice Cooper in 1965. Since then, his Hollywood career has exploded having also worked alongside the likes of Pink Floyd, Luther Vandross, Blondie, Ann Murray and others. Not only that, but Shep instigated the breakthrough of celebrity chefs and also become close personal friends with the 14th Dalai Lama during his venture into Buddhism. Now, though, after a life of luxury and living other people's lives, this 'mensch' as his star friends call him (a Yiddish word essentially meaning 'a good person') is looking for a life of his own.
Barney Ross is the fearless leader of elite New Orleans mercenary team The Expendables who are still as active and formidable as ever despite the ever nearing limitations of age. And it seems those limitations could be closer than ever as they face their most serious challenge yet. When The Expendables' co-founder Conrad Stonebanks became engulfed in a world of crime and arms dealing, Barney made the difficult decision to kill his partner. However, it seems Stonebanks isn't as dead as Barney thought and he's now hellbent on ending The Expendables once and for all. With such a deadly threat facing them, the team decide to recruit; enlisting a younger, fitter and smarter group to join them and bring down their nemesis. With fresh blood and higher numbers, The Expendables are sure to succeed in their latest mission - but will age differences get in the way of their solidarity?
'The Expendables 3' introduces an extended, all star ensemble cast in the final instalment of 'The Expendables' move series. Directed by Patrick Hughes ('Red Hill') and co-written by Katrin Benedikt, Creighton Rothenberger ('Olympus Has Fallen'), Dave Callaham ('Doom') and star Sylvester Stallone ('Rambo'), the movie will be unveiled in UK cinemas on August 15th 2014.
Reviews are in for Sylvester Stallone's new project 'Rocky The Musical', but what do we need to know about the new Broadway show?
So, it sounds like Rocky The Musical is going to be pretty darn great, if the critics are anything to go by, anyway. The musical has been written by the original Rocky, Sylvester Stallone, and is based on the 1976 movie of the same name (obviously without ‘The Musical’ tagged on to the end).

The basic plot of the musical is the same of that in the original Oscar-winning movie. Set in Philadelphia it tells the story of Rocky Balboa, an amateur boxer who gets the once in a lifetime opportunity to compete for the title of heavyweight champion of the world. There’s also a bit of a love story thrown in, you know, to keep everyone happy.

It's a little annoying that this high-concept marketing project (Rocky vs Raging Bull!) is as entertaining as it is: we want to hate it, as tired actors are sending up their own faded images. But while the script never even tries to be something interesting, it at least gives the stars some engaging scenes to work with. And we can't help but cheer for them in the end.
The film stars with a bit of history (and digital trickery), as young bucks Henry "Razor" Sharp and Billy "The Kid" McDonnen (Stallone and De Niro) battle it out back in 1982. Local fans in Pittsburgh are divided between them and are hugely disappointed when, at the peak of their fame, Razor suddenly retires before a climactic rematch. Now some 30 years later, a young promoter (Hart) decides to finally get them back together in the ring. But this stirs up an old feud involving Kid's affair with Razor's wife Sally (Basinger), which resulted in a son BJ (Bernthal), who's now a father himself. Can these two men possibly work together to promote their epic grudge match?
Silly question. Of course they start off gruffly snarling at each other but eventually find the expected mutual respect. And that's about the extent of the acting required of these two iconic stars. Add some fast-talking comedy from Hart, veteran battiness from Arkin, steely femininity from Basinger and soulfulness from Bernthal and the film at least has a veneer of complexity. But aside from wondering whether the filmmakers will fudge the final match so no one loses (they don't), there isn't much to worry about.

Razzie 'favourite' Adam Sandler is up for yet another Worst Actor gong and newbies Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga earn their first nods
It's awards season, which means it is the time when the stars of Hollywood gather together to congratulate themselves on another successful year of moviemaking. It is also the period when some of Hollywood's more questionable tastes are exposed and then routinely mocked, thanks to the annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
All of the Grown Ups 2 cast are up for an award, but it is Sandler who earns the most recognition
An established 'favourite' with the Razzies committee, Adam Sandler is up for his 19th, 20th and 21st Razzie nomination and might make it three Worst Actor wins in a row, with his role in Grown Ups 2 up against Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger, Ashton Kutcher in Jobs, Jaden Smith in After Earth and Sylvester Stallone for pretty much all of his movies from 2013; Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan, and Grudge Match.
After appearing in six movies, all written by and starring Stallone, Rocky Balboa is set to make a seventh film appearance in the latest spin-off movie, 'Creed'.
Sylvester Stallone has confirmed that he plans to reprise his iconic character, ROCKY BALBOA, for the spin-off film, 'Creed'. The movie focuses on the grandson of Rocky's famous friend and opponent, Apollo Creed, with 67-year-old Stallone revealing that he will play the courageous boxer as he trains and mentors the young Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan. This is not, however, 'Rocky VII', Stallone reveals.
Stallone, who both wrote and starred in all the six 'Rocky' movies, won three Academy Awards for the first movie. In an interview with Jonathan Ross on 11th January 2014's 'An Evening with Sylvester Stallone' at the London Palladium, he revealed: ''I'm supposed to be doing a film with Ryan Coogler, who did 'Fruitvale Station', called 'Creed'. It's very interesting because people think it would be 'Rocky VII' ... it's not, I have a supporting role. It will be great to take that character, who's actually not well, and pass on his knowledge while he still has time. I think it could be a great movie and a great challenge. It is going to happen.''
Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro talk about their new boxing movie 'Grudge Match' in an interview. They discuss the relationship between their characters and the process of training for the movie's big fight.
'The characters we play are people that were just born to be natural enemies', says Sylvester. 'They're antagonistic because they're envious of each other's talents.' On the training regime, Robert admits they didn't do a lot of training together. 'I started working with Sylvester's guy, Bob Sale, he's great... He came to New York and we would train as much as we could and [Stallone] would give the choreography to him and so we worked on it for a few months', he explains. 'We didn't really work together 'til we got [to New Orleans].'
A formidable group of New Orleans mercenaries led by the no-nonsense Barney Ross are starting to feel less invincible than they used to. Their latest mission sees them bump into the crazed co-founder of the elite team, Conrad Stonebanks, who Ross thought he killed a long time ago when he turned against the law and began arms dealing. Now Stonebanks will stop at nothing until everyone of the expendables are wiped out. Ross and his team are feeling less than confident and decide to enlist a fresh team of skilled warriors who are much younger, fitter and more in tune with the ever developing technology of the armed forces. Will the young and the old be able to work together to bring down their latest nemesis? Or will the generational clash do more harm than good?

With a powerhouse cast and an anaemic script, this violent revenge thriller never quite gets off the ground. It's watchable for the character detail, but resolutely refuses to make any logical sense as it charges through its corny plot. Fortunately the slick filmmaking and charismatic acting hold our attention, adding a hint of sophistication to the bluntly brutal story.
It's set in the Louisiana bayou, where former undercover agent Phil (Statham) is trying to have a quiet life with his young daughter (Vidovic). But the locals are wary of outsiders, and a schoolyard confrontation escalates into a feud between Phil and a resentful woman (Bosworth) who calls her gangster brother Gator (Franco) for help in getting even. Gator quickly discovers Phil's past, then enlists his trashy pal Sheryl (Ryder) to contact Phil's old enemies. But as these ruthless thugs descend on the bayou, they fail to take into consideration the fact that Phil has nearly super-human fighting skills.
There's plenty of possibility in this rather tired premise, but Stallone's boneheaded script never bothers to make things believable, skipping over key details and indulging in trite coincidences. Fleder manages to obscure this with his fluid, pacey direction, and the cast is unusually good for such a simplistic thriller. The charismatic Statham doesn't stretch himself much, occasionally attempting a bit of real acting in the father-daughter scenes (his romance with LeFevre's teacher is never developed). Bosworth and Ryder add some unpredictable edges to their stereotypical roles. And it's Franco who steals the film as an unusually thoughtful redneck thug. Although his moral quandary doesn't put off any of the nastiness.

Forbes blows the proverbial cartoon trombone effect for the ill-fated Wikileaks movie.
It's been a slippery slope for Bill Condon's The Fifth Estate: first Wikileaks founder Julian Assange denounced the movie, then critics refused to be convinced, it disappointed at the box office and now it has been slapped with a great big 'flop of the year' sticker, courtesy of Forbes.
Sadly, Even Cumberbatch Couldn't Rescue 'The Fifth Estate.'
The topical movie, covering the rise of news-leaking website Wikileaks and set in a thriller format, initially seemed to be a shoo-in for success with actor-of-the-moment Benedict Cumberbatch as Assange and the Oscar-winning Condon at the helm.

London welcomed Thor: The Dark World's world premiere. Dornan lands Grey, while Hardy will play Elton John. Stallone, De Niro, Freeman, Douglas and Kline promote their projects. And Anchorman 2 promises a lot of laughs...
The stars of Thor: The Dark World descended on London for the world premiere in Leicester Square this week. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman posed for the paparazzi and greeted screaming fans before the screening. The film has had terrific word of mouth in advance of its opening in the UK next week and in America the week after. Browse through our photos from the 'Thor: The Dark World' world premiere held at the Odeon Leicester Square, London. Or click here to watch the trailer.
The big news this week is the casting of another UK actor, Jamie Dornan, as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, the kinky romance costarring Dakota Johnson. Best known for TV series like Once Upon a Time and The Fall, Dornan replaced Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) in the role. If you're asking yourself 'Who Is Jamie Dornan?' Check out our cheat sheet for 'Fifty Shades of Grey's' Christian.

He’s been in, approximately, a billion movies; he’s been a politician, a Mr. Universe (five times!), a bodybuilder, a model and a public speaker. But he’s known for his one liners above anything else, and Arnold Schwarzenegger knows this.

You know not to expect something deep and meaningful when a movie stars Stallone and Schwarzenegger, and indeed this is pretty much what we expect: a slick thriller that's utterly preposterous but not quite stupid. But the premise has a certain idiotic charm to it, and there are just enough clever touches to keep our brains engaged.
Stallone plays brilliant security expert Breslin, whose job entails being thrown into maximum-security prisons so he can find the weakness in the system. Clearly unbothered by being beaten and brutalised by guards and inmates, Breslin is backed up by a support crew (Ryan and Jackson) and his business partner (D'Onofrio) back in the office. But now the CIA wants Breslin to check out its new top-secret enemy combatant lock-down. To do this, Breslin must go off the grid. And when he realises that the evil warden Hobbes (Caviezel) isn't playing ball, he teams up with brilliant scientist inmate Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to, yes, plan an escape.
As the story develops we get the feeling that the screenwriters sat around thinking of ways they could make this prison increasingly impossible to believe. Indeed, one mid-film twist is so incredible that it actually makes us admire the writers' audacity. Arthouse director Halstrom gleefully indulges in all of this silliness, keeping the imagery sharp and cool while name-checking pretty much every cliche of both prison and heist movies. There's even a bit of political context in the way a private contractor is abusing the system to profit from the War on Terror.
