According to these notes the running time for the movie is 103 minutes. Previously we've heard that it was 90 minutes, 127 minutes, or 106 minutes but it's safe to assume that this is the running time for the final edit of the movie.
I thought that this section sounded promising, we've heard a lot about the emphasis on practical effects for EX3:
"In addition to expanding the cast, the filmmakers have differentiated The Expendables 3 by pulling out all the stops when it comes to action scenes. “The most important thing for me beside the story is the action,”says Lerner.
“We have huge action, bigger than in the first two, because that is what our audience wants.”To ensure that, the filmmakers brought in Dan Bradley, one of Hollywood’s most admired second unit directors. “We had the equivalent of two full films shooting simultaneously,”says Weldon. “Dan has been the top action second-unit director in the business for many, many years. When you have a guy of that stature, you have to provide a full unit so that he can do what he does best.Otherwise,you’re just wasting time.”Working with Allen Hall, an Academy Award®-winning special effects expert,and J.J. Perry, one of the industry’s top stunt coordinators, Bradley has created breathtaking set pieces that give lie to the belief that CGI has become the only way to go.
“One of the things audiences have come to expect from us is mind-blowing action like they’ve never seen before, done without a green screen or a lot of CGI,” says Constantine. “Dan Bradley, our second unit director, created some of the most jaw-dropping situations and put his movie stars in the middle of them. These are real movie stars and stuntmen accomplishing incredible things. It’s our biggest film yet.” The cast members were confident they were completely safe with Bradley as they took part in some mind-blowing action sequences.
“The second unit and the stunt guys were fabulous in this one,”says Lundgren.“They put us right in the middle of the action. I think the audience is going to love knowing that when something blows up or a truck goes off the edge, we are really in the middle of it.”Perry, the stunt coordinator,says this was the most massive script he had ever undertaken. “It’s as big as three movies rolled into one,” he says. “I only do action films where big dudes are smashing other big dudes and things are getting blown up and people are getting shot in the face. That’s what Expendables is all about, so I felt right at home.”The climactic final sequence, which the filmmakers refer to as “the block,”was shot in a vast expanse of twisted metal and concrete rubble that was once a Bulgarian steel foundry.“That was an absolutely amazing location,”says Stallone. “The scale of it is mind-boggling. You don’t realize something this big exists. It’s pretty decrepit now, which was fantastic for our film. It looks like Armageddon.”
