Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Knoxville Go for the Gun in Latest 'Last Stand' Poster (Photo)
The former California governor returns to the big screen as a sheriff fighting against a notorious drug cartel.
An '80s actions star and a reality show prankster meet for a little fun with a gun in the latest poster for The Last Stand.
The final one-sheet for Arnold Schwarzenegger's return as a leading man features the former California governor standing with a loaded firearm and a goggle-wearing Johnny Knoxville. The tagline "Retirement is for sissies" accompanies the poster.
Korean director Jee-woon Kim's English-language film debut follows Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger), who moves from L.A. to a sleepy border town Sommerton Junction where he must prevent a notorious drug cartel leader (Eduardo Noriega) from escaping to the U.S.-Mexico border.
In October, Lionsgate held a private party in the U.K. to honor the Terminator actor while he was on tour to promote his new autobiography, Total Recall.
At the event, Schwarzenegger said he had been told to mention the film “over and over” again in any interviews that he would be doing to promote him memoir.
"I was already going to do that anyway," Schwarzenegger said. "I'm very proud of the movie, and I'll be back. I'm a big believer in marketing and promotion after all."
The movie, which is Schwarzenegger's first starring film role in 10 years, also stars Rodrigo Santoro, Zach Gilford, Forest Whitaker and Genesis Rodriguez.
The Last Stand is set to release Jan. 18, 2013.
