Guys! Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger is old? Does "The Expendables" and "The Expendables 2" not meet your quota of Old People Jokes + Things Exploding? Good news: "The Last Stand" is one the way.

Arnold Schwarzenegger & Forest Whitaker in 'The Last Stand'

Guys! Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger is old? Does "The Expendables" and "The Expendables 2" not meet your quota of Old People Jokes + Things Exploding? Good news: "The Last Stand" is one the way.

At one time, we were kind of stoked that Kim Jee-woon, the man behind "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" and the deliciously demented "I Saw the Devil," was behind this picture. Perhaps he'd bring some necessary edge to what looks to be a rote Arnie action movie. But instead, it's actually just a rote Arnie action movie. The new trailer has dropped and before Arnie's sheriff character can enjoy a cup of coffee at a diner, a "situation" arises and he has to reluctantly get into ass-kicking mode. Peter Stormare plays the bad guy, and....holy shit, is that Johnny Knoxville

In case it matters to you, the story follows a disgraced LAPD cop (Arnie) in a new job in a small town, who is trying to stop a drug cartel leader who has just busted out of prison and is trying to make it across the border with $400 million bucks. Genesis Rodriguez, Forest Whitaker, Harry Dean Stanton, Rodrigo Santoro and more round out the cast.

Anyway, you're either rolling with this or not. "The Last Stand" opens on January 18, 2013.
