First look at The Last Stand (2013)


Here is first look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, in his first lead role since 2003, from the set of The Last Stand. You wonder why I am posting it here? The reason is that this movie is directors Jee-woon Kim (who is known for such fantastic films as I Saw the Devil, The Good, the Bad, the Weird, and A Bittersweet Life) Hollywood debut.

With him, responsible for production, is his long time associate cinematographer Ji-yong Kim, so there already can't be any doubts about visual quality of this movie.

Similar to Jee-woon Kim, another Korean virtuoso of directing, Chan-wook Park is currently involved in his own Hollywood debut - Stoker.

There haven't been many successful Asian directors making transition to Hollywood, so it will be really interesting to see how well they will perform there.

Film's premise from Wikipedia:
Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is sheriff of the quiet US border town of Sommerton Junction after leaving the LAPD following a bungled operation. Following his escape from the FBI, a notorious drug baron, his gang and a hostage are heading toward Sommerton Junction where the police are preparing to make a last stand to intercept them before they cross the border. Owens is reluctant to become involved but ultimately joins in with the law enforcement efforts.
Movie is set to  be released in early 2013.
