Arnold Schwarzenegger Leaving The Expendables

The Expendables franchise is in even more trouble following Sylvester Stallone‘s disappointing departure from the action film series last week.

Much of the passion for this throwback action franchise comes from star and producer Sylvester Stallone, who rounded up a combination of his old action movie friends and some of the newer meatheads on the block for an assembly of mercenaries who shoot big guns, create big explosions and always take down the bad guy. Now that he’s gone, some of the franchise’s key players don’t have much of interest in returning, like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read More »

The Expendables was less of a movie and more of an excuse for Sylvester Stallone and his various aging action movie co-stars to pose and preen. Like a former high school quarterback returning to his old stomping grounds to rally the new team at homecoming, these movies represent a nostalgic eagerness with a dash of vanity – you can feel everyone involved muttering “Let’s show these kids how it’s really done” between the frames.

It was charming for a little while. And then it wore off. The Expendables 3 didn’t make nearly as much money as the first two films, but those international numbers were apparently high enough to justify one more sequel. It looks like The Expendables 4 is happening and it will be in theaters in 2018.
