As Arnold Schwarzenegger's new film - 'The Last Stand' - hits theaters this weekend, let's turn our attention to perhaps his most popular franchise. The actor was in talks to star in 'Terminator 5' after leaving public office but he never had an actual script. That's about to change as two writers have been hired to write a 'Terminator 5' script, kickstarting the upcoming sequel.
Arnold Schwarzenegger was Hollywood's leading action hero for much of the 1980s and 1990s. His body of work is filled with action extravaganzas and fun, high-concept comedies. The release of 'The Last Stand' - Arnold's first starring role in a film in 10 years - has us thinking about Arnold's entire body of work
In his recent autobiography, Arnold Schwarzenegger describes his part in 'The Last Stand' as "a great, great role." He plays Ray Owens, a former LAPD cop who retired to his hometown in Arizona after his partner got crippled in a botched drug raid. Now the local sheriff, he and a few bumbling deputies are all that stands between the Mexican border and a ruthless drug kingpin. "The sheriff knows if he succeeds," Schwarzenegger writes, "it will mean everything to the town. His reputation is on the line. Is he really over the hill or can he do it?"
After spending a couple years governating, Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to the big screen with a vengeance. He's got 'The Last Stand' coming next week, then a film where he's pitted against Sylvester Stallone in September, and another picture lined up for next January, on top of talks of playing Conan the Barbarian again and the proposed 'Twins' sequel. We're going to be seeing a lot of Arnie in the near future, and now there's a new red band trailer trailer for 'The Last Stand.'
Admit it, no matter how silly 'The Last Stand' looks, a little smile comes across your face when thinking about Arnold Schwarzenegger play hero in an action movie once again. Besides, it doesn't appear to be taking itself too seriously, and it wasn't directed by a hack but the exciting Korean talent Kim Jee-Woon.
To get you further pumped for the flick, opening in a few short weeks, the first clip has hit the airwaves, featuring features plenty of gunfire, running and an Arnold quip. It's like the '80s all over again!
After a handful of cameos during his time in office, former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to his action roots with a vengeance. He's coming back to the big screen this January with a starring role in 'The Last Stand,' and it looks like he took a page from the Sylvester Stallone playbook in this new trailer and poster.
If you think of Arnold Schwarzenegger's long career as an action star, his career-launching title role in 'Conan The Barbarian' comes to mind (or at least it should come to mind). Fans of this hit movie now have something to celebrate as it's just been announced that the star will reprise his role for a 'Conan The Barbarian' reboot titled 'The Legend of Conan'!
