The final theatrical poster for Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s return to action star status, The Last Stand, has just been revealed and with it comes a big promise. Arnold will be handling a big-ass gun in an image reminiscent of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
In The Last Stand, the English language debut of Kim-Jee Woon, Schwarzenegger plays a small-town sheriff who is forced to defend his borders against an escaping crime boss. It co-stars Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Forest Whitaker, Peter Stormare, Eduardo Noriega, Zach Gilford, Jaimie Alexander and opens January 18. Check out the poster below.
Thanks to Collider for the poster.
And don’t forget the last trailer.
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.
