The boys are back and ready for action in The Expendables 3.

This time, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his team of Expendables must face (and inevitably fight) merciless arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson). The twist: Stonebanks is the co-founder of the Expendables, and he is hell-bent on destroying them. Ahh, but why?

In the newly released trailer, Stonebanks explains that he and Ross used to be close once. “We started this whole Expendables thing together, but we had a falling out,” Stonebanks says, pointing a gun at Ross. Must have been some falling out. Inevitably, it would appear that there’s a bit of tension between these old pals. The result: explosions, gunfire, fistfights, and did we mention explosions?

“You were stupid enough to get yourself into this mess,” Lee Christmas (Jason Statham) says to Ross. “We’re the only ones crazy enough to get you out of it.” Find out how when the film comes out August 15. For now, get your high-flying, testosterone-infused action fix here, and keep an eye out for returning favorites: READ FULL STORY

'Machete Kills' red-band trailer: 'When the sh** hits the fan, he's the blade' -- VIDEO

“Men fear him. Ladies love him.” His name is Machete.

In the new red-band trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s action sequel Machete Kills, it’s Charlie Sheen who’s calling the killing machine for help taking down a “mad man south of the border.” You might recognize said mad man as Mel Gibson, who plans to use his “army of super soldiers” and a missile to cause some serious damage. As he puts it, “I am a genuine, high-caliber f—er-people-upper.”

What ensues involves explosions, decapitations, intestines being pulled out, explosions, machine guns, Sofia Vergara pelvic thrusting her way to victory, and Lady Gaga getting her hands dirty. Did we mention explosions?

Casting Net: Kirsten Dunst goes for a 'Midnight Special'; Plus Charlotte Gainsbourg, Mel Gibson, more

• Kirsten Dunst has been acting for most of her life, and recently it seems she’s turning to more director-driven projects. These have seen varying degrees of critical and box office success, including Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia and Walter Salles’ On The Road, as well as the occasional raunchy comedy (Bachelorette) and cameo role (Anchorman: The Legend Continues). Now, Dunst is set to join director Jeff Nichols (Mud), as he re-teams with his Take Shelter star Michael Shannon in Midnight Special, about a father and son on the run. Details are scarce, but the report says that along the way, they discover that the 8-year-old son has some kind of special powers. Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby) also stars. [Deadline]

Mel Gibson wears a cape in new 'Machete Kills' trailer

The opening scene of the new Machete Kills could be a scene from Scary Movie 12, but once Carlos Estevez (a.k.a. Charlie Sheen) answers the hot phone, Robert Rodriguez’s gonzo sequel starts riffing off another classic comedy: Austin Powers. There’s a hero (Danny Trejo) plucked from yesteryear for a top-secret mission, a dastardly villain — Mel Gibson! In a cape! — threatening the planet, a sexy government handler, and a bodacious Mexican fembot of the highest caliber.

I’m not sure the movie itself can be more fun than this trailer. But it’s going to be exciting to see if Machete can put the Grrrrrr in killer, baby. Watch the trailer below. READ FULL STORY

Anti-Defamation League comments on Mel Gibson accusations: 'It fits nicely into a pattern of a serial offender, a serial hater, and a serial bigot.'

The Anti-Defamation League and Mel Gibson have such a long history of trading press releases, at this point the ADL must have a special Gibson Division. With his latest PR implosion – screenwriter Joe Eszterhas’ nine-page accusatory letter  reviving discussions of Gibson’s bigotry, as well as detailing the breakdown of their joint Maccabees project  — the organization decided to respond.

“Had these allegations been made against any other actor, we would be skeptical, and certainly one could chalk them up to the words of a disgruntled screenwriter whose script was rejected. But with Mel Gibson, they follow a distinct pattern of anti-Semitic conduct…. The latest revelations would be surprising if not for the fact that it fits nicely into a pattern of a serial offender, a serial hater, and a serial bigot,” ADL director Abraham Foxman said.

In the letter, Ezsterhas indicts Gibson specifically for using anti-Jewish slurs like “Hebes” and “oven dodgers.” In his own response, Gibson has called these claims “utter fabrications,” which the ADL acknowledges in their statement.  READ FULL STORY
