I just want to see Snipes back up on the big screen - then someone will think "Let's make another Blade movie, that's just about Blade going round and killing motherfucking vampires".

And then New Jack City 2.

Lithgow is awesome in Ricochet. The parole sequence is fantastic.

Quite a modest teaser trailer for such a extravagant series.

Personally, Expendables 2 made the original, a mixed experience at best into something approaching flipping Shakespeare. I don’t see how a third outing and all those who sail with her is going to get anything but pelters honestly. There are plenty of older actors out there who still give each role their best but the expendables series seems adept in rounding up all those who just don't give one solitary shit any more. The premise of seeing everyones favourite action stars together to shoot bad guys and invoke the care free times of yesteryear is an awesome one but if nothing else The Expendables serve to highlight just how well the earlier films they're trying so desperately to emulate were made.

Why be an ageing and famous movie star if you’re phoning in every performance you give? To paraphrase Redletter Medias Mike Stoklasa for a sec, “what do you need more money for? Buying a more expensive head stone?” Ben Kingsley for example in IronMan 3 was brilliant fun, puts a big smile on my face every time I watch it. A true testament to making the most of a relatively throwaway role, but if Fords latest output is anything to go by, last seen bored off his nut in Endersgame, his appearance in this is just going to serve as further damage to his reputation.

These films bring out the cynic in me and serve to make me question why I liked these actors in the first place. It turns into a bunch of whoring pensioners after a while and just makes me sad.

The only person who looked genuinely fed up in the first two was Bruce Willis who has thankfully smirked the fuck out of the 3rd installment. Dolph, Arnold, Van Damme and the Stath all looked like they were having a laugh in the last one. Sly takes it all a bit too seriously but I don't think it's fair to lump them all in the 'here for the pay check, just don't give a fuck' category.

Please, no. He was so disinterested and visibly annoyed by having to interact with his co-stars in Blade: Trinity. Understandable to some degree when you have to talk to a smug Ryan Reynolds, but Snipe would only revisit the character for a pay-cheque and the result wouldn't be good.

Aye, he was famously pissed off with the whole production thanks to the way it was switched from a big-budget sequel to a franchise he had control over to a cheaply-made exercise in product placement that he had no say in. His response to the way the franchise was handled is understandable.

I thought the second was rubbish. A number of reasons but what one of them is certainly that Van Damme is given very, very little to do. Meh.



Well the rights for Blade are back with Marvel now so he'd probably be more on board now. Does Blade ever interact with other marvel characters?

YESSSSSSSSSSS

Having watched Riddick last night, I'd love a Blade reboot done in a similar style. Stripped back, no nonsense Wesley Snipes fucking shit up action.

Posters - There's a set report coming as well. I'd say there's a chance we might see a trailer attached to Captain America 2 in the US this week. If not, the trailer shouldn't be far away.

Anyway - Snipes is back, motherfuckers!

During a press conference held by Stallone at Cannes, he told the crowd that the film with be PG-13 rated, so that the new generation of cinema goers won't have to sneak in to the see the film.

Obviously I get that they're doing this in an attempt to make more money, but is The Expendables 3 really the type of film that young cinema goers would go to see anyway? I really don't think so.
