If you are familiar with the logo to the left you know it can mean one of the two things. 1. A hostile takeover, or 2. A new beginning. My intention with posting this picture is the latter, a new beginning for the Expendables Premiere with the ownership being transferred from Patrick to myself Trevor Cicalo, Mike Paris, and Mike Higgins. I cannot speak for the two Mikes, but I am sure they are as touched as I that Patrick has put his trust in us to run this great site, the number 1 expendables fan site on the planet.
I have not yet had the chance to communicate with my two partners, so we may not see eye to eye on a few things going forward. First, my hope is to make this site as interactive as possible, we have a great community here. This community is comprised of nothing but the most hardcore of 80's action enthusiasts, who in my opinion are the most passionate type of fans. It is because of us that 50 Cent is nowhere near this franchise, and it is because of us that no man or woman had to sit in a theater with a bunch of thirteen year olds while they watched The Expendables 2. Secondly, I know this site has many visitors, but I would love to hear from all of you in regards to Sylvester Stallone's recent tweets about adding 22 year old tech wizards to the Expendables 3, and also making the tone lighter. Once I find out what the general consensus is on this and if I see that most of you disagree with the direction the third installment of this highly successful franchise is going, then in the coming months I intend on using every ounce of power this site has to make sure our voices are heard by the producers of the Expendables, namely Avi Lerner, who as you may know holds all the cards.
Lastly, I just want to thank Patrick one final time for this gift he has given me, if I, together with Mike Paris and Mike Higgins could be even half as good as he was at running this site then I think the Expendables Premiere will continue to exist for years to come.
