It’s an Arnie photogasm at the moment, what with the first pic from The Tomb, the Expendables 2 premiere and now a look at the poster for his latest action thriller The Last Stand, courtesy of IGN. You can take a look below – click to enlarge it.
The Last Stand finds Arnie as former LAPD narcotics officer Ray Owens, who left his old life under a cloud of remorse and regret after a bungled operation resulted in several dead cops. He’s since settled into a relatively quiet life as the sheriff of sleepy border town Summerton Junction.
But then his peace and tranquillity is shattered when notorious drug kingpin Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega) breaks free from an FBI prisoner transport and heads for the Mexican border at top speed. He’s got a heavily armed bunch of mercenaries, a specially-outfitted Corvette and a hostage. So the scene is set for a stand-off in Summerton between Cortez and the massed US law enforcement team, led by Forest Whitaker's Agent John Bannister. Owens is at first counted out because of his background and seemingly low-rent team (including Luis Guzman and Johnny Knoxville), but soon rallies his troops to stop the villain in his tracks…
The poster's tagline warns, "Not in his town. Not on his watch." Given the appearance of a more wrinkly Arnie, it could theoretically add, "Not on his lawn".
The Last Stand is out on Janury 18 in the US and January 25 over here.
