“Jason Statham’s Positive Take on Stallone’s Exit from The Expendables 4”

When it comes to The Expendables 4, Jason Statham believes that Barney Ross’s brief appearance might seem strange, but there’s a reason for it.

The Expendables 4, the latest installment in the popular movie franchise, has had a disappointing opening weekend at the box office, earning only $8.3 million. One possible reason for the lackluster performance is the reduced role of series star Sylvester Stallone, who has confirmed that this will be his final appearance as Barney Ross in the franchise. Fellow cast member Jason Statham has acknowledged Stallone’s absence and expressed disappointment that something feels amiss without him. Despite Statham’s enthusiasm for taking The Expendables in a new direction, it seems that Stallone’s limited screen time may be contributing to negative audience reception. The first three movies in the series all earned significantly more on their opening weekends, with the original taking in $34.8 million, the second earning $28.6 million, and the third bringing in $15.9 million. Statham has cited the franchise’s focus on thrills, heart, and humor as its appeal, but it remains to be seen if the reduced presence of its iconic star will impact its future success.
