THE EXPENDABLES III (12A, SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, OUT TODAY)

Sly Stallone has promised to dispense with the tongue-in-cheek comedy that plagued the sequel, and get back to some gritty action in the third instalment – which boasts the biggest ensemble cast yet.

Mel Gibson joins the mix as bad guy, ruthless arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks – who also founded the Expendables program with Stallone’s Barney Ross – with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey and even Harrison Ford, joining Barney’s team.

Of course regulars Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Arnie Schwarzenegger return for the violence-fuelled high-octane series.
