He might be a little older and a little slower, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in form with The Last Stand. It is a throwback that mixes western, action and comedy elements into an explosive stylized movie that doesn't quite fire on all cylinders, but is still an entertaining ride. Written by Andrew Knauer and directed by Kim Ji-woon (The Good, the Bad, the Weird and A Tale of Two Sisters), The Last Stand sees Schwarzenegger joined by Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Rodrigo Santoro, Luis Guzmán, Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford, and Génesis Rodríguez. The Last Stand.s plot is pretty straight-forward. The world.s most dangerous drug crime lord, Gabriel Cortez (Noriega), is being transferred to »

There are some things that just don't go together: oil and water; wine and Twitter; Jimmy Choos and a hardhat ... You get the idea. And as much as Americans seem to love "Star Trek Into Darkness" star Benedict Cumberbatch, he's not quite ready to pledge fealty to, as he put it, "the stars and stripes."
For the latest MTV After Hours special, Benedict Cumberbatch gave American Talk his very best go, and he was totally down to pimp the health benefits of the McRib and to start going by Sherlock Awesomepants (though only because the surname portion has the same number of syllables as his own). Also, his Arnold Schwarzenegger impression was pretty legit.
But the oh-so-proper Cumby had to draw the line somewhere, and he found his breaking point with the U.S. of A. when it came to the name of a certain game.

Genesis Rodriguez, Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville also star in the Jee-woon Kim-directed film, which was billed as Schwarzenegger's big solo comeback movie following his departure as governor of California.
The Last Stand will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on May 27. It is available in the Us now. »
A week in film news is not complete without another report of a reboot or remake, and since 80s action properties have been thoroughly harvested, Hollywood seems to be plowing through to the 90s. Moving on from remakes of Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicles (for now), the next action hero with a remake in development (without his involvement) is Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Timecop.
THR reports that Universal is looking to make a re-designed version of Van Damme’s 1994 time-traveling action movie. Directed by Peter Hyams and based on the Dark Horse comic book mini-series, Van Damme played the eponymous time-traveling police officer (in the future of 2004) tasked with stopping criminals who abuse the technology. He runs afoul a corrupt politician (Ron ...

Mad cow disease is nothing compared to an epidemic that turns Britain’s livestock into flesh-eating zombies. This is the story behind Michael Logan’s recently released novel, Apocalypse Cow, and we’ve been provided with an exclusive excerpt to share with Daily Dead readers.
“It began with a cow that just wouldn’t die. But it would become an epidemic that transformed Britain’s livestock into sneezing, slavering, flesh-craving four-legged zombies.
In Michael Logan’s Apocalypse Cow (St. Martin’s Griffin; 1-250-03286-5; May 21, 2013; $14.99; Trade Paperback Original), the fate of a nation seems to rest on the shoulders of three unlikely heroes: an abattoir worker whose love life is non-existent thanks to the stench of death that clings to him, a teenage vegan with eczema and a weird crush on his math teacher, and an inept journalist who wouldn’t recognize a scoop if she tripped over one. »

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Peter Stormare, Eduardo Noriega, Luis Guzmán, Sonny Landham, Jaimie Alexander, Zach Gilford | Written by Andrew Knauer | Directed by Jee-woon Kim
After a temporary retirement and a brief stint as the Governator of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to the silver screen. Schwarzenegger has had a few cameos in The Expendables franchise but The Last Stand marks the first time Schwarzenegger has taken the lead in a film since Terminator 3. With such a long layoff one wonders if Schwarzenegger could pick up where he left off. While he would never be confused with an acting savant, he brought a certain magnetic charm that made him one of the world’s biggest action stars. Perhaps it’s an issue of too much rust on the gears or a hindrance due to advanced age that has water downed his charismatic persona. His movements are achy, his punches are feeble, »

To whomever coined the term, “Sweet Sixteen”, you sir or madam are a liar. I remember my sixteenth year being one of the worst years of my life. It all started a couple months shy of my sixteenth birthday when my mother told us that our father had been abusing some substances, which I will remain nameless. She told us that there may be a slight chance of us moving to Texas to live with my aunt. That’s how serious the condition of my father’s addiction really was. That was just my home life. That’s not to mention the subjects in school I was failing and the issues with the girl I was dating at the time. All of this started coming down and weighting on me pretty darn heavy.
So I thought and pondered over a few sleepless nights and broke up with that girlfriend and »

"The Last Stand," Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to his role as a leading man action star, hits Blu-ray and DVD today, so we're bringing you this exclusive look at a featurette from the disc.

How has it been looking back at "The Last Stand"?
I've said it before, but this probably the most fun I've ever had on a set. We all would eat lunch together every day. We just had such a great crew and cast. I wish there could be a sequel.
Is it different watching yourself in an action movie? »

Well, Arnold Schwarzenegger did say he’ll be back. In fact, he said it in pretty much every movie he did after The Terminator. It lasted well into the 90s. Now, he really is back as small-town sheriff Ray Owens in the action film The Last Stand, and he is the only thing standing in the way of a ruthless drug cartel kingpin escaping to Mexico. The Last Stand was a bit of a flop in theaters. (Okay, let’s admit it: It was a huge flop in theaters.) However, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad film. It’s one of those entertaining popcorn movies that actually works well for home viewing, and it’s small-town charm lends itself to being watched with a beer in hand. While this won’t live on as one of Schwarzenegger’s greatest movies, The Last Stand is still a lot of fun to watch and offers a cool »

Perhaps the most prolific and reliable character actor of the last 20 years, Luis Guzman is nothing short of an American treasure. Think of your favorite movie right now — was Luis Guzman in it? There is statistically a 23.9% chance you just said "Yes." That's Luis's career in a nutshell. No one plays the goofy, lovable criminal, sidekick or law enforcement officer better than Guzman, and everyone in Hollywood knows it — that's why he's been in approximately 5,891 movies since 1990.
Guzman recently co-starred in "The Last Stand" with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Johnny Knoxville, where he played a deputy sheriff to Schwarzenegger's head honcho. "The Last Stand" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.
Congratulations on "The Last Stand." You co-star with Arnold Schwarzenegger — the movie is noteworthy for being his first starring »

Parker and Stand Up Guys are also available on DVD this week. Beautiful Creatures Alice Englert stars as a witch in this romantic, fantastical movie that may fill the void left by the end of the Twilight franchise. Set in the South, the adaptation of the young-adult novel follows Lena (Englert) as she discovers her powers and falls for local boy Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich). Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson, and Viola Davis add some actor credibility to the cast, but it's Ehrenreich's charisma that makes the biggest impression. The DVD comes with a trailer for author Margaret Stohl's next book, plus deleted scenes. 45% Side Effects Steven Soderbergh directs Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum in a stylish thriller that puts antidepressants under the microscope. When Emily's (Mara) therapist (Jude Law) prescribes her a new drug to treat her anxiety, she comes out of the daze she's been in since her husband (Tatum) returned from prison. »

A few days ago, Stallone also revived talk that Jackie Chan could be in the mix:
What’s the plan? Ask Jackie Chan….
— Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) May 16, 2013
Jackie Chan spoke with Empire recently and told them the following regarding a possible role in The Expendables 3, ”[The Expendables team] did contact me, but right now I have not read the script yet. I’d love to work with Stallone, but until I get back next week and meet Stallone and his manager, see the script…that’s when he’ll tell me what happens.”
