8 Action Stars Over Sixty We Want For 'Expendables 4'

August 15th, 2014 10:00am EDT
Expendables 3
This weekend marks the opening of our third "Expendables" film. Yes it leaked online weeks ago, but that's small potatoes.

No minor setback could hinder Sylvester Stallone's box office take, not when he's in a film so inundated with action stars that each one has roughly 4.2 seconds of screen time (at which point they have their choice of high-fiving Stallone, casually ignoring an explosion or shooting an intern dressed in SWAT gear, before being hurriedly shuffled off-screen).

It is our firm belief that "The Expendables" should continue for at least seven more sequels, enough that Stallo...

Stallone spent well over a decade adapting the movie for the stage and collaborated with Ukrainian boxers Vladimir and Vitali Klitschko on the production, but in the end "Rocky - The Musical" will officially close on August 17 after 200-plus performa...

13 Greatest Actors Turned Critically Acclaimed Directors
Very few actors are afforded success and fame in the brutally competitive film landscape. Those who miraculously do make have trouble-holding relevancy, as Hollywood trades aging veteran actors for relative and good-looking newcomers immediately destined to be the next big thing. But these screen presences who’ve been able to hold Hollywood’s attention even into their later years have also found a strong niche behind the camera, directing Oscar worthy films and Hollywood blockbusters that encapsulate audiences’ attention while reaping critics’ acclaim. Move over Scorsese and Spielberg, beca...

Some films are works of art that you'll remember for years - films you'll want to watch over and over again. 'Escape Plan,' directed by Mikael Hafstrom, is not one of them. However, it is very entertaining, in a predictable sort of way.

He's paid big bucks to engineer real life jailbreaks from high security correctional facilities.  In fact, Ray has a 100 per cent escape rate.
