While Arnie has had a fairly big part to play in The Expendables 2, it is Jee-Woon Kim’s The Last Stand which see’s the action heroes proper return to the big screen. In the film Arnie finally takes centre stage and is the leading man for the first time in almost ten years, and boy it is good to see him back! How anyone can not love Arnie is something which is very hard to comprehend in my head, so my guess is The Last Stand is going to be huge.
While I was full of anticipation for the film, my excitement levels have now gone through the roof with a new, and truly amazing new trailer for the film. While the first trailer was everything we’d ever hoped it would be for an Arnie film, this new trailer pisses all over it and takes things to a whole new level. This is classic, vintage Arnie made ultra cool for today’s movie going public, and it looks stunning. Check out the brilliant new trailer below!
Directed by Jee-woon Kim, The Last Stand stars Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare, Genesis Rodriguez and Zach Gilford.
The Last Stand arrives in UK cinemas 25th January 2013
After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.
