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

'The Expendables 3' teaser trailer packs a punch -- VIDEO

What this trailer lacks in actual action it makes up for in the sheer power of name recognition: Stallone, Statham, Li, Schwarzenegger, Banderas, Snipes, Gibson, Ford, and so on, and so on, forever and ever.

Set to the “Colonel Bogey March,” you’ve got to admit, this 56-second trailer packs a punch, and most of it is just a bunch of jacked dudes’ backs. Like Ocean’s Thirteen before it, an already stacked cast continues to expand exponentially in this third Expendables installment. You won’t find many plot clues in the trailer below, but given that it was only just filmed this summer, they’re moving along at a pretty steady pace.
