ScreenDaily has more detailed information about the upcoming “The Expendables 3” event, which has the gang arrive in tanks at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 18, 2014.
Two qualified drivers will steer the decommissioned BTR60 eight-wheel armoured personnel carriers from the East end of the strip to a 10.45am press conference at the Carlton.
Millennium Films president Mark Gill also revealed that tanks weren’t first on their list of ideas to promote the third installment. “The first idea was a zipline from the top of the Carlton to the beach,” he said. “Then we called the insurance company. We considered helicopters and settled on tanks.”
Either way, it’s going to be badass, and, without a doubt, the most talked about stunt at the annual film event.
