Arnold Schwarzenegger Takes The Last Stand at Film’s World Premiere

Arnold Schwarzenegger led the cast of his new crime action thriller, ‘The Last Stand,’ on the red carpet at the film’s world premiere on Monday night at Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The actor was joined by some of his co-stars, including Johnny Knoxville and Luis Guzman. The movie also stars Zach Gildford, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare and Genesis Rodrigeuez.

‘The Last Stand’ was directed by Jee-woon Kim and written by Andrew Knauer and Jeffrey Nachmanoff. It follows Sheriff Ray Owens, played by Schwarzenegger, who moves out of Los Angeles after leaving his narcotics post. The Sheriff took his new job following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and remorse. Ray settles into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction.

But Ray’s peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez, played by Noriega, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, and makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a band of lawless mercenaries, led by Burrell, portrayed by Peter Stormare, Cortez races towards the US-Mexico border, with a hostage in tow. He plans on ripping through Summerton Junction, where U.S. law enforcement, including John Bannister, played by Whitaker, will have their final opportunity to interrupt the criminal. Ray is initially reluctant to help John stop Gabriel. But he eventually rallies his team to take the matter into his own hands, and sets the stage for a classic showdown.
