If you grew up in the 80s or the 90s, chances are you’ve seen your fair share of Schwarzenegger flicks, but we’ve been through a bit of a dry-spell since he became California’s Governator. Now that his political career is over, we get to enjoy the Austrian Oak in theaters first up is the Expendables 2 and in January 2013 we’re going to get to see his latest solo outing, The Last Stand.
Here’s the official synopsis and poster, courtesy of Apple trailers:
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.
