Hey guys, an exclusive first clip from the upcoming action thriller The Last Stand is here, and as yo’re going to see – it’s time for us to see a real Schwarzenegger action! Titled Owens Defends Justice, this short clip will show you that being a Sheriff is never an easy job. But, hey, we already knew that retirement is for sissies, right?
Written by Andrew Knauer and directed by Kim Ji-woon, the movie follows Schwarzenegger’s character, a tough guy named Sheriff Ray Owens.
Ok, he’s maybe an aging sheriff of a border town, but that town is the last hope of keeping a drug cartel leader Gabriel Cortez from fleeing the country.
In other words, expect to see a lot of this:
Sheriff Ray 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.
Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzmán, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford and Genesis Rodriguez, The Last Stand will open on January 18th, 2013.
