A new trailer for Kim Jee-Woon’s (A Tale of Two Sisters, The Good, The Bad, and The Weird) upcoming action flick THE LAST STAND has been released. The film centers on a drug cartel leader who busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexico border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff (Ah-nuld Schwarzenegger) and his inexperienced staff.
Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzman, Zach Gilford, Rodrigo Santoro, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare, Harry Dean Stanton, and Genesis Rodriguez co-star. The Last Stand is scheduled to open on January 18, 2013.
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.
