A new, action packed and very amusing clip has gone on-line from Arnie’s big return to movies, The Last Stand. Directed by Kim Jee-woon, The Last Stand will be Arnie’s first big lead role since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines in 2003.
The clip itself see’s Arnie as Sheriff Ray Owens in a bit of a pickle. He is involved in a shootout and decides to leave the sort of safety of a bus to smash his way through the local diner. In true Arnie fashion, door handles become obsolete as he crashes through the front door, and this is followed by a rather amusing bit of banter between diner manager and Arnie, who states that he feels “old!!” Bless!!
Directed by Kim Jee-Woon, 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 24th 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.
