#GIVEAWAY: ENTER TO WIN PASSES TO SEE “THE EXPENDABLES 3” ACROSS CANADA!
Mr. Will and eOne Films want to take Readers across Canada to an Advance Screening of THE EXPENDABLES 3. You know how much we loved the first two Films in the Franchise! Screenings take place Thursday, August 14, 2014 in Toronto, Victoria, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Winnipeg and Vancouver.
In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
THE EXPENDABLES 3 stars Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz, Mel Gibson, Ronda Rousey, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and so many more!
