Expendables 3


We came back! This time on… THIS PODCAST, Jeremy and Jason let a storm of wild and erotic comedy overtake them as they deliver all the hits with none of the filler. Honestly, I don’t know how you made it through without us but *finger to face* shh shh, it’s okay now. Let’s talk about Dan Aykroyd‘s idea to explore the mythology of the Ghostbusters one shard at a time. Let’s talk about stolen Batmobiles and Ben Affleck‘s feels. Lets talk about sex, baby. Fat guy sex, that is. Let’s put a black hamburger in our mouths and taste the squid juice goodness. Let us be adventurers together on the dope wave that is the internet, bro.

Other things that we will touch on during the show… (more…)

Super Bowl time is a time of rejoicing for many sports fans. But even if you don’t happen to be a football aficionado, you can still get some pleasure from the Super Bowl, for it is also the time when marketing companies go out of their way to promote anything and everything. Further, this year the commercial barrage is going to show off some of the big-budget movie blockbusters that will be hitting during 2014. So which trailers can we expect, you ask? Scroll down to find out. (more…)

While the first Expendables was pretty bad, The Expendables 2 went bigger, packed in more 40 years or older action stars, and– well, it still kinda sucked, but it was an improvement over the original. Since the third film was announced, it seems like we’ve been hearing about a new middle aged actor being added to the film every other week. Well, we now have a comprehensive list of who’s starring in the latest movie, which began production today:

  • Sylvester Stallone
  • Jason Statham
  • Jet Li
  • Dolph Lundgren
  • Randy Couture
  • Terry Crews
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Wesley Snipes
  • Antonio Banderas
  • Mel Gibson
  • Harrison Ford
  • Kellan Lutz
  • Ronda Rousey
  • Victor Ortiz
  • Glen Powell

Now, that may seem like a cast of “has-been” actors, and even a couple of “never-weres” (everyone knows acting and arm bars go hand in hand), but the upward trend, however slight, has me feeling hopeful. In theory, the movie acts as an avenue in bringing action packed nostalgia to fans of those 80’s-90’s action films, but seeing how those first two movies went, I’m surprised we are getting a third. Maybe my tastes have grown, but the first movie came off as incredibly cheesy, while the second also left a lot to be desired.

The latest plot continues the theme of pitting the battling mercenaries against a team that, in reality, is not very much different than themselves. This time, they are going through with a “new school vs. old school” story, which is kind of confusing to me, considering the majority of the cast is what most people would consider “old school.”

The official plot description:

The cast for the third installment of the Expendables franchise is filling up quick.  They’ve been hard at work making Expendables 3 just as star-filled as the other two flicks, bringing in the aging action stars to do more old people stunts and pay tribute to their past action fame.  Harrison Ford was brought into the fold recently and now two more old folks are on board – Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas.

If rumors are true, Gibson will be taking on the role of the main baddie this time around, which is, considering Gibson’s current reputation, probably the best part he could play (and one of the best they could get for the part).  Unfortunately, there’s no word on what’s going on with Banderas other than the fact that he’ll be in there somewhere.

Altogether, the Expendables 3 cast is shaping up pretty well, consisting of names like Kelan Lutz, Victor Ortiz, Ronda Rousey, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham.  Rumors are also still flying about the potential addition of Nick Cage, Jackie Chan, Milla Jovovich and Wesley Snipes, though nothing is set in stone in that regard.

Check out Expendables 3 in all its geriatric glory come August 15th, 2014.


Thanks to ComingSoon for the heads-up.


This time on The BastardCast, Jeremy, Jason, and habitual guest Matthew Jackson discuss the latest Batman casting rumors (and Jason’s desperate desire to be Robin), why Johnny Depp should care a little more and suck a little less, and why Peter Capaldi will make a better Doctor Who than a marzipan dildo.

Also on the show: Boba Fett’s new reality TV show, why The Flash sounds like a kinder, fast moving version of Dexter, how DC Entertainment and the ani-Maniacs over at Warner Bros. need to grow a pair and not screw the Flash TV show up, and visual confirmation that Gustavo Fring is alive, well, and still making dope-ass chicken fingers in New Jersey.

Do you need more? Apparently, so did Bruce Willis, because Sly Stallone has taken to twitter in a manly way to possibly diss his former co-star while also announcing that Harrison Ford is entering The Stallone Zone to star in Expendables 3: Rise of the Hernia Sling.

Still not enough? Alright, alright, Harrison Ford also lays out his idea of an acceptable Indiana Jones swan song, Karl Urban gets an offer from one of the boys that he will surely refuse after urging the Star Trek creative team to embrace exploration, and George Lucas‘ dirty little secret about also being Michael McDonald is revealed thanks to “The Butter Song”.

The BastardCast: Held down from Nerdist-like podcast-y glory by those damn American critics.


Sylvester Stallone teased his Twitter followers yesterday about who might be directing Expendables III. You can check out the entire Twitter feed here. The end result being Stallone’s choice of Patrick Hughes to direct the next Expendables sequel.

Hughes only has one feature film under his belt, but Stallone likes it, he likes it a lot. The trailer for Hughes’ Red Hill is below and there’s also a short film of Hughes, Signs, that Stallone couldn’t stop tweeting about. Stallone had tried to get Mel Gibson to direct, but somehow that didn’t work out.

Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments section below. Does Hughes film style fit the Expendables mold?

This week on The Bastardcast: Jason and Jeremy return from their tour of Yo Momma to talk about the big drama surrounding a little bit of peen in Saga #12, a Game of Thrones fan’s Craigslist enabled sexy time fantasy, and world renowned sugar-tit enthusiast Mel Gibson’s possible directorial return for The Expendables vs. The Macabees: A Time Travel Adventure, aka Expendables 3.

Also on the show: Would you have sex with a robot? 9% of you would according to a new poll and apparently 50% of our adventurous hosts would as well. So, yeah, we’ll be dedicating some time to discuss Cylon banging.

We’ll also tackle the sale Shatner’s phaser, the return of Carrie Kelley to Batman comics, the departure of Microsoft’s former creative director and chief gamer pisser off-er, the sacrificial lamb that is Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Warner Bros. big DC movie plans, TV’s favorite couple (TEAM KADEEM!), and Jeremy and Jason try to figure out why Jodie Foster is rocking a smart pantsuit 140 years into the future in the somewhat District 9-y Elysium trailer.

All that and a lyrical ode to Axel Rose’ bulge on… The Bastardcast.

This week on The Bastardcast, Jeremy and Jason get down with the sickness that is Kickstarter revivals, wrestler/actors, and their low budget/high concept version of what Jurassic Park 4 would look like.

You want more? You need it? Fine, we will be your podcast heroin — who want’s to talk about the Pope!?!?! Yeah you do, how about Ukrainian assassin dolphins? Oh, now we got your attention. Ready for the money shot? The Papal pop-shot if you will? How about this: The Pope riding on the back of a Ukrainian assassin dolphin to take on Steven Seagal?! BOOM! Don’t trip on your brain pieces that fell on the floor when we blew your mind with that thing we just said.

I can’t believe you want more show, I can’t believe how voracious your appetites are and the fact that I just used the word voracious in a way that is proper. Fine! We will give you more show! You insatiable pod-gobbler!


All that, and a whole other podcast tacked onto the back of this one that will have hilarity ensuing all over your face and up in your business.


The Bastardcast: Kickstartering a Perfect Strangers trilogy since 8 minutes ago.

If there’s one movie franchise that people are anticipating a return to more than Star Wars it has to be The Expendables.  Okay, so maybe that’s a complete load of crap, but regardless of how we feel about it the studios are certainly planning to put together a third installment.  And while attending the premiere of Bullet to the Head, Sylvester Stallone talked a bit about where he’d like to see the franchise go in the future.

What did he have to offer in the way of Expendables plot lines?  Well, there was this:

The Expendables… they’re broken up, they’re shot, they’ve had it, they’re done. We have to hire new us, we have to find new Expendables, but there are none! They don’t make people like us anymore; they are all like robots. So I can go out and hire five young guys, but they’re the new army, they got drones and technology, but they’re not like us. Remember in Tropic Thunder? Just like those guys!

So the archetypal meatheads get replaced with kids and technology?  Doesn’t exactly sound like the Expendables that I remember.  I thought the whole point of these things was to fill them with iconic action stars?

Well, if that idea sucks balls, at least Sly had another to offer:

There’s another combination, and it involves girlfriends. Say I got divorced, say I am married to Sigourney Weaver, then she gets half the Expendables, she gets what I call The Expendabelles. So I need help and I have to go to her. And I’d like to have like Michelle Rodriguez, Gina Carano. It’ll be something like that, very different.

Sounds a bit like the lady Expendables idea that’s been all over the place, except mixed in with the dudes.  Perhaps a bit more reasonable than the tech idea though.

To sum it all up, Stallone had this to say:

The main thing is it can’t be about us! We’re done. We need to bring in new blood. And you bring in geeks and girls and women, people who are different.

Well, maybe the old guard is done with this mediocre franchise and they’re looking to bring new blood in to keep the dollars flowing.

What do the NerdReaders think?  Is another Expendables movie even worth the cost of the film it’s printed on?  Does Stallone have some good ideas, or is he most likely on drugs and sleep deprived?
