The Last Stand

The Last Stand

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back this week with his new action movie The Last Stand - which is his first lead role since leaving his political career behind.

And the action icon was in London this week to promote the film with co-stars Johnny Knoxville and Jamie Alexander.

As well as walking the red carpet in London this week the trio also attended the UK press conference to chat about the film.

In the video Knoxville and Alexander talk about what is was like working with Schwarzenegger for the first time before they all chat about the film and their characters:

The movie sees Schwarzenegger and co team up with action director Jee-woon Kim, who is making his U.S. feature directorial debut with this film.

The Korean filmmaker has been behind movies such as Doomsday Book, The Good, The Bad, The Weird and A Bittersweet Life and is now stretching his wings even further.

It may be his U.S. debut but the actor has brought together an impressive cast as Schwarzenegger, Knoxville and Alexander are joined by Forest Whitaker, Peter Stormare and Luis Guzmán.

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.
