Kim Jee-woon, the South-Korean director responsible for excellent movies like ‘I Saw The Devil’, is the man behind ‘The Last Stand’, which sees Arnold Schwarzenegger back on the big screen. The movie looks like it’s going to be loads of fun, with some bad-ass action sequences and, with Johnny Knoxville as Arnie’s co-star, there’ll more than likely be some good laughs too.

Two trailers have already been released, plus a couple of super looking posters (featured above + below).

The film also stars Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzman, Peter Stormare, and Genesis Rodriguez and is scheduled to be released on January 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis, followed by the trailers.

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.
