Rodrigo Santoro, Luis Guzman, Genesis Rodriguez and Eduardo Noriega star alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in his return to action in THE LAST STAND. The former governator and aging action star has a lot of help this time around as seen in the new trailer which if you tweet enters you for a chance to win movie premiere tickets.
Having that many Spanish surnames in THE LAST STAND can only mean one thing - the plot probably revolves around the drug world and a border town. Hollywood is known for casting the token minority, so seeing these many Latino faces is quite refreshing…even if some of them are playing stereotypical baddies which Schwarzenegger has to terminate.
Lionsgate is also offering fans a chance to win a trip to the World Premiere of THE LAST STAND to one Grand Prize winner by tweeting the trailer with #LastStandTrailer. Twenty-five runner ups win a pair of tickets to see the film when it opens January 18, 2013.
More About THE LAST STAND
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.
