expendables 3 teaserLionsgate

The new teaser trailer for "The Expendables 3" contains no footage from the film and has no discernible plot -- but it knows its strengths (namely, the sprawling cast), and that's just what the short clip delivers.

Set to a cheerful whistled tune, the teaser begins with our silhouetted heroes marching forward, their backs to the camera. As the focus widens to reveal just how large the group is, the music becomes more bitchin' by the second, until electric guitar swells and drum fills transform into rifle shots.

Actors name-dropped in the clip include both new and returning "Expendables" players Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, Dolph Lundgren, Wesley Snipes, and Mel Gibson. And that's not even a complete list.

Their star power comes together on the big screen when "The Expendables 3" opens on August 15, 2014.
