In a previous post, we got to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first official still from his upcoming movie with Sylvester Stallone (The Tomb) and now thanks to IGN we’ve got the first pictures from his action flick The Last Stand which was directed by Kim Jee-woon and features actors Forest Whitaker, Peter Stormare , Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Genesis Rodriguez and Luis Guzman.
The movie is one of Arnolds 3 movies scheduled for release in 2013 and this one (The Last stand) would be out in theatres on the 18th of January.
Check out the official synopsis, the poster for the movie and two pictures from the movie after the jump.
“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. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive 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 rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.”
