No bones about it Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in some the best action films of the 1980s and 1990s but like in the new second trailer for The Last Stand, ‘I’m Old’ so is this one last chance to prove there’s still life in the old dog yet? This January Arnie returns for his first leading role in a decade as a small town sheriff who takes no mercy on the drug kingpins threatening to cross their border town to freedom.
The first trailer focused all it’s energy on the action element of the film this new trailer does divulge a little more into the story though it still keeps its simplicity us versus them which maybe concerning as its a tad on the generic side. This trailer also gives us a first look at the rest of the supporting cast and what possible role they may have within the film, so in essence a lot of focus will be on Korean director Kim Ji-woon to deliver something special and take the film to another level. Take out the seriousness The Last Stand looks agood old fashioned fun film, a few corny jokes, plenty of action as well as Arnie proving his body maybe getting old but his mind is still young and can show the young whipper snappers he can still fire a gun, hasta la vista baby!
The Last Stand will arrive in UK&Ireland 25th January 2013 one week after it arrives in USA. The film co stars Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare, Genesis Rodriguez and Zach Gilford.
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.
