He's been saying it for years (and most likely he will keep saying it), but Arnold Schwarzenegger is back! Check out the debut trailer for "The Last Stand," a stylized crime-thriller starring Schwarzenegger as a border-town Sheriff stuck in the middle of a brutal war between the Mexican drug cartel and the FBI. The film, which co-stars Forest Whitaker, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare and Johnny Knoxville, marks Arnold's first leading role since 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. It also marks the first English-language feature from acclaimed Korean director Kim Jee-woon, best known for the horror thriller "I Saw the Devil" and the quirky action-adventure flick "The Good, the Bad, the Weird." "Last Stand" settles in theaters on January 18th.
Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Kim Jee-woon's hard-hitting US directorial debut, THE LAST STAND. 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.
The Last Stands stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford, Genesis Rodriguez
