Next up, even though Comic-Con is now in the rearview, it seems we're still getting material from San Diego as a rather cartoony and kind of ridiculous poster for Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand" has arrived. So why do we care?
For starters, "I Saw The Devil" and "The Good The Bad The Weird" director Kim Jee-woon is at the helm, and secondly, the premise is promisingly low key and gritty. The story follows a disgraced L.A.P.D. cop (Arnie) in a new job in a small town, who is trying to stop a drug cartel leader, Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), who has just busted out of prison and is trying to make it across the border with $400 million. Zach Gilford and Rodrigo Santoro are the team of cops on the small town force working with Ahnuld, and together they will team up against Peter Stormare who works for Cortez. Genesis Rodriguez will play an FBI agent with Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker and the always awesome Harry Dean Stanton rounding out the cast. We'll see the results on January 18, 2013.
