Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to the big screen in the action film The Last Stand last year, and now it is time for the flick to hit DVD and Blu-Ray Disc, as Lionsgate prepares the release for May.
After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Arnold 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.Â Cortez‘ path:Â 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.
Apart from the feature presentation itself, the release will also include a selection of Deleted and Extended Scenes, as well as a series of Featurettes, such as “Not In My Town: Making The Last Stand,” “Cornfield Chaos,” “The Dinkum Firearm and Historic Weaponry Museum” and “Actor-Cam Anarchy: with Johnny Knoxville and Jaimie Alexander”.
“The Last Stand” is scheduled for release on May 21 and can be yours for $29.95 on DVD or $39.99 on Blu-Ray Disc.
