Basically, the issue is both a lack of exposure to the comic book (a lot of people presumed it was just a remake of the Stallone movie), and an overall decline in R-rated movies in general. Expendables 2 flopping at the box office, for instance, is being partially blamed on them going for an R rating instead of the PG-13 they were initially aiming for. Also because it was shit, but still.
Let's put it this way - Expendables 3 will be PG-13.
