    Sylvester Stallone Not So Subtly Says Mel Gibson Will Be In 'The Expendables 3'

    Sylvester Stallone is rounding up his latest batch of actors for “The Expendables 3,” and that means a return to nostalgic casting, likely performed by spinning a circular rack of '80s VHS titles and headbutting a winner. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, and Mickey Rourke were the latest names to join up...

    Lock Up Your Brain: New Trailer For 'Escape Plan' Starring Sylvester Stallone & Arnold Schwarzenegger

    "But it's supposed to be dumb!" certain audiences cry, when defending whatever dim action movie is causing chatter, which this week is "White House Down." While we hoped it would qualify as dumb yet awesome, it's just plain awful, with a self-seriousness that extinguishes whatever fun it might be tr...

    Sylvester Stallone Confirms Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes & Mickey Rourke For 'The Expendables 3,' Wants To Use 'The Raid' Cast Too

    “The Expendables” franchise seems like both a blessing and a bit of a curse for Sylvester Stallone and his team of aging action stars. While the franchise itself has proven to be a hit, it hasn’t exactly been a career re-launcher for guys like Stallone and Schwarzengger whose films “Bullet to the He...

    Who? Sylvester Stallone Wants Aussie Helmer Patrick Hughes To Direct 'The Expendables 3'

    Though they’re distributed through Lionsgate, "The Expendables” films have been produced through Millennium Films, the closest modern equivalent to The Cannon Group. In an unintentional nod to that company’s B-movie history, Sylvester Stallone has once again decided to tap someone else to direct the...

    Terrifying First Look Set Pic Of 'Grudge Match' Is A Chilling Reminder Of Where De Niro's Career Can Go

    Will all of Robert De Niro's great "Silver Linings Playbook" work be undone in a blink of an eye? The actor has a solid shot at winning Best Supporting Actor tonight despite the fact that Tommy Lee Jones won the SAG award for "Lincoln" earlier this year (the best Oscar augur there is).

    Discuss: Do The Flops 'The Last Stand' & 'Bullet To The Head' Spell The End For Schwarzenegger & Stallone?

    The listings for the multilpex at the moment kind of feels like a timewarp into the early 1990s. A couple weeks ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger made his return to starring roles after a decade spent bankrupting California as the state's governor, in "The Last Stand." On Friday, Sylvester Stallone starred...

    Box Office: 'Warm Bodies' Tops Super Bowl Weekend, While 'Bullet To The Head' Flops

    Pale young leading man dreamboat? Check. Playing a cannibalistic monster who holds his predatory instincts in check? Check. Falls in love with a girl who looks like Kristen Stewart? Check. Based on a best-selling book, from Lionsgate/Summit? Double check. “Warm Bodies” took dead (har!) aim at the “T...

    BULLET TO THE HEAD

    As I understand it, a successful buddy movie requires two well-cast actors in the starring roles. This one, which is based on a French graphic novel, offers Sylvester Stallone as a cardboard (yet larger-than-life) character named Jimmy Bobo,
