Watch: Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Ready For 'Sabotage' In New 3-Minute Red Band Trailer

For the most part, Arnold Schwarzenegger's "comeback" vehicles have mostly traded on ironically spoofing his persona. From "The Expendables" films to "The Last Stand" to "Escape Plan," all of them have traded on some notion of self-awareness to Arnie's career and reputation. But what makes the forthcoming "Sabotage" so compelling is that it seems to ditch all of that for a straight up genre flick, and it's going red band with a new trailer to get you on board.

Sabotage

For the most part, Arnold Schwarzenegger's "comeback" vehicles have mostly traded on ironically spoofing his persona. From "The Expendables" films to "The Last Stand" to "Escape Plan," all of them have traded on some notion of self-awareness to Arnie's career and reputation. But what makes the forthcoming "Sabotage" so compelling is that it seems to ditch all of that for a straight up genre flick, and it's going red band with a new trailer to get you on board.

Directed by David Ayer and featuring the best ensemble Arnie has had around him in a while, including Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway, the story finds the action star playing the head of an elite DEA task force that takes on the world's deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done—until, one-by-one, the team members mysteriously start to be eliminated. And as the title suggests, it could be someone on the inside.

And you know what? If this delivers what it promises—solid, no frills, B-movie thrills—then sign us up. But what do you think? Watch the trailer and let us know in the comments section. "Sabotage" opens on March 28th.
