    Antonio Banderas and Sylvester Stallone injure themselves during the filming of Expendables 3

    By David Brown on August 5, 2014

    Both Antonio Banderas and Sylvester Stallone managed to injure themselves during the filming of latest blockbuster movie, Expendables 3.

    The 68 year-old Sylvester Stallone had to have a metal plate inserted into his back after he had a nasty fall during the movie shoot. In 2009, during filming for the original Expendables movie he suffered a hairline fracture to his neck which resulted in having another metal plate inserted.

    Whilst at a press conference to promote the latest movie Stallone said, “I usually grade the quality of the film by the intensity of the injury”.

    Antonio Banderas also revealed that he suffered during the first take of the first scene but he didn’t tell his fellow cast members because he didn’t want to think it was merely down to old age. The 53-year-old star said “I got injured in the first take that I did in the movie. I carried the injury all the way through but I didn’t say because I didn’t want anyone to think I was getting older. It was running on the roof to the helicopter and I got a pain in my right knee and it stayed there”.

    Last year Jason Statham – who plays Lee Christmas in the movies – revealed that he nearly drowned when he was shooting the film after a stunt went wrong. Stallone said, “Jason actually fought death in the midst of the Black Sea. He’s very modest about it but he drove a five-tonne truck 60 feet down into black mud because I cut the brake line”.
