Hi, Bryan Here…
‘The Last Stand’ stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jaimie Alexander, Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzman, Peter Stormare, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, and Genesis Rodriguez. Pretty impressive cast, I know. The film is directed by South Korea’s Jee-woon Kim, which is fucking awesome.
Jee-woon made ‘I Saw the Devil’, ‘A Tale of Two Sisters’, and ‘Doomsday Book’ to name a few. Those films are mandatory viewing. This looks decent, and while Arnold looks old, he might just turn out a good performance. The film is slated to open next year on January 18th.
Synopsis: Sheriff Owens is a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he 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 accepts responsibility for the face off.
Enjoy the final trailer.
