The Last Stand Comes With Nice Firsts!

Ang Lee, James Wan, M. Night Shyamalan are three of Hollywood's best asian directors but with Koreans getting all the attention in music, movies, fashion, etc since last year. I'm not surprise that we'll have two new asian directors who will have their English-language debut this year.

I'm talking about Korean directors Kim Jee-Woon (A Tale of Two Sisters, The Good, The Bad, The Weird) and Chan-Wook Park (Oldboy, Thirst). But let's talk about Kim Jee-Woon for now. This Januart 18, will be his first hollywood action film 'The Last Stand' and as the title suggests, it's going to be an avenue for a lot of firsts.

For not only this will be Jee-Woon's first hollywood action film but also Arnold Schwarzenegger's first leading role in a decade.

Plot Summary: Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Kim Jee-Woon's hard-hitting U.S. directorial debut, "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's 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. - Coming Soon

The Last Stand is also starring Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzmán, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare and Genesis Rodriguez.
