Arnold Schwarzenegger Rocks in New Trailer for ‘The Last Stand’

Published 2 years ago by

He promised us that he’d be back, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is delivering in a big way. The 65-year-old movie star-turned politician-turned movie star is set to appear in a number of upcoming action movies including The Tombย (alongside Sylvester Stallone), the David Ayer filmย Ten,ย and the Conan The Barbarian sequel Legend of Conan.

Before we see Arnold in any of those films, however, we’ll first see him in director Jee-woon Kim’s action film The Last Stand. The movie features Schwarzenegger as a small town sheriff who’s the last line of defense in keeping a dangerous cartel leader from crossing the border into Mexico. In a new full-length trailer for the film, we learn a bit more about Arnold’s character, as well as the bad guys he’s squaring off against.

Compared to the first teaser trailer for The Last Stand, this trailer is a bit lighter thanks to more footage of comic relief characters played by Luis Guzman and Johnny Knoxville. Despite the lighter tone, though, there’s still more than enough action packed into the footage, particularly with new footage of the cartel leader’s initial escape from custody.

While his time away from acting may have put him out of the public mind, there’s no denying that in his heyday Arnold Schwarzenegger was arguably the biggest movie star on the planet. And though it’s unlikely he’ll ever reach the height of his fame again, it definitely looks like Arnold is set for a resurgence in popularity.

After all, we’re living in a world where The Expendables franchise has grossed nearly $600 million worldwide, Bruce Willis is coming back for another Die Hard movie, and Harrison Ford is actively considering playing Han Solo again in Star Wars: Episode 7. Clearly, it’s cool to be an old guy in Hollywood.

What do you think of this new trailer for The Last Stand? Are you looking forward to seeing this movie when it hits theaters early next year?

The Last Stand comes out in U.S. theaters on January 18th, 2013.

  1. not as cool as the first trailer but still looks good.

  2. Too bad they gave away the entire escape. Looks decent though :)

  3. For a second I thought it was Steven Kings book ‘The Last Stand’.

    • You mean “The Stand” I think.

  4. A small town western sheriff with an Austrian accent. My ability to dispel disbelief is handicapped out of the gate ><

    • Yeah the governer of California with an Austrian accent is much more believable :-)

      • Check and Mate. ๐Ÿ˜€

        Besides, I know for a fact that there is German sheriff with a German accent in a small Alaskan town. So there… ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • haha I have my moments ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Brilliant. Perfect response.
    I honestly couldn’t believe someone wrote that.

  6. At 1:55 was that the Conan Sword ???

    Wow..Arnie looks awesome,man can’t wait ! He is back ! :)
    Awesome !

  7. After seeing the entire movie condensed into a couple minutes Im wondering if there’s anything left to enjoy seeing it at the theater.

    • Jaimie Alexander

    • Sure, there is. All the actual action scenes (Rated R) that are the core of an action movie.

  8. Seems kind of boring to me. Also seems weird that someone would mistake a ZR1 for a jet plane. Sure it’s fast, but eats gas real fast at those speeds.

  9. Its time to retire, Arnie.

  10. This looks so great!!!

  11. I am glad Arnie is back to acting again. This will get my money at the theater.

  12. Ahnuld has that old-man voice now, same as Clint has.
    He’s not very imposing anymore, and he doesn’t have real acting chops, so it looks like we’re in for a string of vanity productions, counting on our nostalgia to buy tickets.

    • Yea, okay John. The overwhelming response here has been positive, but feel free to express your opinion nonetheless. “He’s not very imposing anymore”…like he couldn’t kick your a–. As concerns the “vanity productions” quip…as if everyone else in Hollyweird isn’t vain?!

  13. How about we all just be thankfull that Arnie is out of politics, and back where people like him, movies.

  14. Spoiler Alert you know their going to blow up the bridge with the bad guy on it.
