‘Expendables 3’ London Premiere: Sly Heckles His Comrades, Wesley Snipes Calls Out a Crybaby

There was fighting talk on the red carpet at Leicester Square’s Odeon on Monday night.

Lionsgate’s “Expendables 3” exploded onto the big screen for its first global outing, with Sylvester Stallone leading his troops past legions of fans lining the red carpet. Stallone mock heckled from the Odeon’s balcony down to the red carpet, summoning his comrades indoors to start the screening.

Contrary to his usual supermodel fare, Jason Statham brought along an alternative date, with Vinnie Jones on his arm, and Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes and Kellan Lutz in tow.

The steely set were quizzed as to who is the biggest on-set softie. “Antonio Banderas cries a lot. Yeah, I had comfort him many, many nights. You’d be talking to him and all of a sudden he’d just start crying right there in front of you — which was really weird,” Snipes joked.

Following Snipes and Lutz’s jig onto the stage, Stallone charged on with a powerful stride to intro his pic. Stallone singled out producer Avi Lerner from the lineup. “He looks like Albert Einstein, but he’s smart — he picked us!”

After the screening, the squadron and guests headed to nearby club DSTRKT London, to toast a calm close to their latest colossal conflict.
