I remember in the past, Sylvester’s movie career was in a slump. He kept making films that flopped in the box office and he made a few straight to video movies. Then he came back with Rocky, Rambo and now the Expendables… Sly is now a star again. Is Sly’s career about to go downhill again? “Expendables 3” just flopped in the box office this weekend. Not doing well at all.
I wonder why? These are just my observations… PG13 rating? That could be it. The first two “Expendables” movies were very successful ’cause of the R rating. There were lots of violence, blood, and swearing. Not sure how much we’ll see of that in “Expendables 3”, though. Maybe another reason is ’cause of Mel Gibson. Maybe a lot of people still haven’t forgiven him yet and people refuse to support him after his anti-Semitic scandals. No Bruce Willis maybe another reason. Remember, Bruce bailed out of this one.
Honestly, I think the new Expendables group is way too crowded. Maybe that’s another reason. Too many actors in one movie.
If they got stars like Kurt Russell, Jackie Chan and maybe The Rock… then I’m sure it would have been a box office smash.
Anyhow, despite the box office failure of “Expendables 3”, I’m still gonna see it.
