Kellan Lutz Relives The ‘Expendables 3′ Leak: ‘It F–king Sucked’

Posted by admin with No Comments

From MTV.com:

From the perspective of everyone involved in filmmaking, it really sucks to have a movie of yours leak onto the internet.

More specifically, “It really f–king sucked.”

That’s how “Expendables 3” star Kellan Lutz described the pre-release leak of the action team-up series’ third installment when I spoke to him on the phone ahead of the movie’s home video release.

The news of the leak and wide-spread pirating of “Expendables 3″ reached the cast during what should have been a high point of their press tour, San Diego Comic-Con.

“We were on this high, thinking ‘I’m excited for this movie. We have this all-star cast, a really great story, fun action. It’s PG-13.’ You roll the dice seven after seven after seven with all of those components in this film, and you’re really excited,” Lutz said. “At the end of the day, one little thing can just ruin the box office opening for your film.”

From the way Lutz looks at the actual returns on the movie, “Expendables 3″ only did a third of the business that it should have and may have prematurely ended the series, which he blames directly on piracy. “If people don’t see it in the theaters, there’s a slim chance that you’ll get a fourth movie out of it,” Lutz said. “I think it really hurt.”

The unhappy ending of the release, however, can’t take away from the good time that Lutz had making the movie, which he compared to living in an amusement park for a month.

“You don’t get tired of it,” Lutz said. “You’re just really enjoying everything, and then you slowly go back to your normal life and it’s not as fun. I honestly wish that movie lasted longer. I wish we could do a fourth one. I wish I could hang out with all of those guys. It really felt like frat years that I never had.”

“Expendables 3″ hits Blu-ray and DVD on November 25.

Kellan Lutz Hadn’t Heard About New ‘Twilight’ Movies Until We Told Him

Posted by admin with No Comments

From MTV.com:

Back when the news broke that there would be more “Twilight” movies, the news was hard to miss for anyone plugged into the fan base.

But not everyone heard.

It seems word hasn’t reached at least on person of the “Twilight” cast. When I spoke with Kellan Lutz about the upcoming home video release of “Expendables 3,” this was his response to my question about his reaction to the news:

“This is the first I’m hearing of it. What’s going on with it?”

So while you might be pumped for the five short films from up-and-coming female director, featuring characters from the world of “Twilight,” this just goes to show how news like this travels for people who aren’t just fans.

After I explained the concept to Lutz, he seemed enthusiastic and shared some of his thoughts.

“Well, that’s very innovative. I have to hand it to Summit and Lionsgate. That’s a great way to reach the masses again,” he said. “It seems like it’s going to be really interactive as well, with Facebook fans being able to voice their opinions. I just think it’s a really cool idea. They better not give my character away.”

Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz join star-studded campaign to free bears

Posted by admin with No Comments

From animalsasia.org:

It’s the light-hearted punch line to any overtly obvious question and yet – the honest answer to “does a bear sh*t in the woods” could just as easily be “no”.

The well-worn joke has now become a demand for Animals Asia backed by celebrity supporters and thousands of animal lovers worldwide – it really is time for bears to “go” where nature intended. As their campaign says:

“Let a bear sh!t in the woods”


Animals Asia
are campaigning for an end to bear bile farming and have been joined in their latest campaign by celebrities pledging their support and they want millions more to pledge via www.bearinthewoods.org

In China 10,000 bears in tiny cages face excruciating daily bile extractions with the bile used for traditional medicines. There are a further 2,400 bears in bile farms in Vietnam.

Most are Asiatic black bears – better known as moon bears – with many taken from the wild and kept on farms for up to 30 years.

Animals Asia has rescued over 500 bears in China and Vietnam and runs sanctuaries in both countries. Animals Asia also recently took over a bear bile farm in Nanning, China, which it will turn into a sanctuary – demonstrating how farms can have cruelty free futures.

Kellan Lutz said:
“When I first heard about bear bile farming I couldn’t believe it. It’s one more insanely cruel act inflicted on innocent animals and it is not widely known about. More than 10,000 bears – mainly moon bears, but also sun bears and brown bears – are kept on bile farms in China, in tiny cages, and suffer these daily bile extractions. Most of these bears are starved and dehydrated. Please join us in spreading awareness and helping to end bear bile farming.”

Getting personal with the Expendables

Posted by admin with No Comments

From Chron:

Q: What were some of your favorite action movies growing up?
Lutz: Whatever ones my mother never caught me watching. Definitely “Rambo.” I’m a huge “Blade” fanatic. Wesley’s a stud. That’s one of my favorite vampire movies.

Q: Did you geek out at all?
Lutz: I loved Dolph’s He-Man (“Masters of the Universe”). I’d been into He-Man since I was a little kid, I used to have the coloring books. I just saw Dolph down at Comic-Con, and I was like, “You gotta sign your He-Man headshot.” He wrote, “From one He-Man to the next.”

Q: Of the “Classic” crew, who still looks totally badass?
Lutz: Antonio Banderas, I was a huge fan of his in “Zorro” – he’s not this big, badass, huge-muscled guy, he’s just quick and twisty. And he hasn’t aged one bit. I’ve never met someone so suave. The words that come out of his mouth, you just sit there and say, “You are made for a romance novel.”

Complex: The Expendables 3 – New Guys Feature

Posted by admin with No Comments

From complex.com:

TALK ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER IN THE EXPENDABLES 3.
Kellan Lutz: [John Smilee is] a sergeant who came back from a war and lost all his comrades, so he’s wearing a heavy heart. He gets himself into underground fights so he can feel any sort of feeling, any sort of emotion…and it numbs the inner demons that he has.

WHAT DREW YOU TO THE ROLE?
Lutz: This is my ideal dream job to work with all my favorite childhood heroes…To have an opportunity to work with all these guys in one movie, I’ve been trying to position myself for [this] since day one.

HOW DID YOU PREPARE YOURSELF TO PLAY YOUR CHARACTER?
Lutz: John Smilee is known for his motorcycle riding. So I’ve never done that before…Any day I wasn’t working, I’d hit [my stunt double] “Frog” up. I’d be like, “Take me to the track.” For me personally, that’s why I love action movies. I get to learn something fun [and] that I’ve never been trained to do.

WHAT’S IT LIKE BEING IN A BIG-BUDGET ACTION MOVIE?
Lutz: There’s this scene where it’s just Stallone and me taking on fire and we’re saving each other and just shooting the guys. He throws a one-liner to me and it was the first take—mortars are going off, bullets are flying, bad guys are dying—and I’m sitting there just tagging up these guys with the biggest smile on my face. And Sly turns to me and he’s like, “You aren’t supposed to be enjoying this you know. And you aren’t supposed to be smiling.”

HOW DO YOU THINK YOU’D DO AS A REAL-LIFE “EXPENDABLE”?
Lutz: It’d be a dream. I’d love to be a real-life “Expendable.” Before acting came around, I wanted to become a Navy SEAL. So I think it’s right up that alley.

Kellan Lutz: ‘Expendables’ Has a Different Breed of Fans Than ‘Twilight’! – Candids

Posted by admin with No Comments

JustJared posted a small article and a few candids of Kellan at Comic-Con. We added the pics to our gallery.


Kellan Lutz
makes his way into 2014 San Diego Comic-Con held at the San Diego Convention Center on Friday afternoon (July 25).

The 29-year-old actor even took a few selfies with some adoring fans.

“It’s so different being here with Expendables than with Twilight,” he told MTV News’ Josh Horowitz on the difference between the two movies. “Twilight was just a monster in its own. The fans were intense in the best ways for that. I think being a part of this [Expendables] franchise with all these guys, it’s a different breed of fans.”

Posted by admin with No Comments

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Legend of Hercules star Kellan Lutz, Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin and Orange Is the New Black actress Taryn Manning have joined the cast of Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter.

Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder are starring in the indie drama, which tells of famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram.

Milgram was the man who, in 1961, designed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University, which observed the responses of ordinary people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks to an affable stranger.

Lutz will play actor William Shatner, who portrayed Milgram in a 1970s TV movie. Yelchin plays Rensaleer, a man who resists authority. Manning plays Mrs. Lowe, a test subject who is distressed by the process and pushes back.

Also joining the cast are Anthony Edwards (ER) as Miller, the first person subjected to the experiment, and Edoardo Ballerini (Romeo Must Die) as Milgram’s best friend. Filming has begun in New York.
