The Expendables are back again for a third movie with even more iconic faces showing up in this multi-million dollar production. The world premiere was held in London with all the glitz and glamour as is expected from such an event. However, it happened to clash with the World War One centenary commemorations. SOUNDBITE actor Sylvester Stallone, saying (English): "I had no idea that it would fall on this date so I'm kind of ambiguous about it because it's such a solemn important day and it's such a day for celebration but the one thing is that every one of us is here today to pay their respects to the honoured fallen heroes, for sure." This time around, there are eleven new faces to the nine core cast. SOUNDBITE actor Sylvester Stallone, saying (English): "The thing is if you keep adding to the story and bring in new blood and some cool old blood and keep stirring it around... there's an old saying that if you keep moving your feet fast enough they won't notice your shoes ain't shined so we just keep it going, keep mixing it up. And it gets harder every time. We're running out of guys." One of the guys invited to participate in Expendables 3 is Wesley Snipes, who has returned to Hollywood blockbusters after spending three years in prison for failing to file income tax returns. He was given a warm welcome back by fans in Leicester Square. SOUNDBITE actor Wesley Snipes, saying (English): (Reporter: You went through a bit of a rough patch) "Like we all have, right? It's been a hell of a three years for everybody, ain't it? I can dig it."(Reporter: How does it feel to be back and have all this love?) "Oh man, it's wonderful, man. I appreciate it. It's truly a blessing." 'The Expendables 3' begins its international roll out at cinemas from August 13th.
