Movie News Movies

“The Expendables” came out in 2010 and made $274 million worldwide at the box office (via Box Office Mojo). Even though the critics didn’t love it, fans seemed to enjoy the old-school action thrills that the movie offered, especially since it was led by well-known action stars like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, and Dolph Lundgren. The movie only got a sad score of 42% on Rotten Tomatoes, but the audience gave it a good score of 64%. It’s not surprising that it led to two sequels that were also moderately successful at the box office, and since “The Expendables 3” came out in 2014, there have been talks of a fourth movie.

Even though it was said in 2018 that “Expendables 4” was in the works, there hasn’t been much news about it since then. Box Office Mojo says that “The Expendables” franchise has made nearly $800 million around the world, so it was only a matter of time before the fourth movie came out. The Hollywood Reporter said in an exclusive that “The Expendables 4” has a new production schedule and an ever-growing cast list that includes both actors who have been in the series before and actors who haven’t.

Now that we know more than ever about the movie, we can look at everything we know about “The Expendables 4” in detail.

The Expendables 4 Release Date

The Expendables 4 is set to come out sometime in 2022, according to Lionsgate. We don’t have more specific information yet, but based on marketing materials, it seems likely that the movie won’t have any major delays in its release date.

In April 2022, the movie’s official posters came out, and the first teaser trailer was shown only to people at CinemaCon. With any luck, people will soon be able to get their hands on this advertising material.

The Franchise Had to Pause After The Expendables 3

The first two movies in The Expendables franchise did very well at the box office. The second movie in the series did especially well, becoming one of the most popular movies of 2012. The Expendables 3 didn’t do as well as the other movies in the series and made the least amount of money, especially in North America.

There have been many ideas about why this movie didn’t do well, but the most popular one is that it was given a PG-13 rating instead of a Rating like the last movie, which upset fans of the violent and action-packed franchise. This hurt the movie’s reputation in the end, and both critics and audiences didn’t like it much.

Because of all of this, The Expendables 3 is usually thought to be the worst one, especially because it had a cast that was too big and a plot that didn’t go anywhere. Discussions about The Expendables 4 stopped right away since the loss of money from the third movie was a liability for the studio.

This break from the franchise gave the Expendables team time to think about the series as a whole, including its successes and failures. This helped them figure out how to move forward in a good way.

Who is in the cast for Expendables 4?

This problem is mostly caused by the huge number of people in each movie’s ensemble cast. When more than a dozen big names are in the same movie, it’s easy for a character, even one played by a kung fu legend like Li, to get lost in the crowd. Jackie Chan didn’t want to join The Expendables franchise because of this. He said he didn’t want to be in The Expendables 4 if he was only going to be there for “five minutes.” For a big star, having so little screen time would feel like a waste of time and a sad waste of their martial arts skills.

Tony Jaa is the most exciting new cast member for The Expendables 4, but he could be the movie’s biggest letdown if it makes the same mistakes as the other movies in the franchise. The Thai actor is best known for his leading roles in the Ong Bak trilogy, The Protector, and Furious 7. There are high hopes for Jaa’s Expendables 4 character based on his martial arts skills and past work.

A fourth movie in The Expendables series is finally moving forward after being in the works for years. The movie’s cast was just recently made public, and Sylvester Stallone is back as Barney Ross to lead the group. Gunner Jensen, played by Dolph Lundgren, Lee Christmas, played by Jason Statham, and Toll Road, played by Randy Couture, will all be back for the next mission. We don’t know yet if the characters played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, or Terry Crews will come back or not, but Jaa, Megan Fox, and 50 Cent will still give the movie a lot of star power.

The Plot for Expendable 4

It’s not easy to figure out what happens in “The Expendables 4,” but Sylvester Stallone may have given us a hint. The Illuminderdi said that an “Expendables” spin-off movie with Lee Christmas (played by Jason Statham) was in the works for January 2020. The name “The Expendables: A Christmas Story” was said to be the working title. Stallone recently wrote on his Instagram story that he was going to work on a “spinoff of the EXPENDABLES” and that the working title was “Christmas Story.” It looks like that movie with Statham as the main character will be the fourth in the series after all.

The Hollywood Reporter also said that Statham would be the star of the movie, while Stallone would be in the background. It’s not surprising that Lee Christmas will be the main character since he’s always been Barney Ross’s right-hand man and second-in-command.

Once filming starts in October, fans will definitely learn more about the plot of “The Expendables 4” over the next few months.
