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, »

"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. If you've ever seen how Schwarzenegger talks about his movies, especially the "Total Recall" audio commentary, you know how fun it can be.
Also, to celebrate the release, we spoke with Schwarzenegger's co-star Jaimie Alexander, who explained what it was like to watch herself in an action movie alongside the legend.
Check out our interview with Jaimie Alexander after the jump!
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? »

Kiele Sanchez knows if you're literally going to sweat out doing a series, it's good if your spouse is another actor who understands.
The former co-star of "Lost" and "Related" starts her fourth season as nurse Callie Cargill -- long-distance girlfriend and potential fiancee of Florida police detective Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore) -- on the A&E mystery series "The Glades" Monday, May 27. Sanchez married "Friday Night Lights" alum Zach Gilford at the very end of 2012, and she's grateful he knows the business ... and can handle hot temperatures.
"It absolutely helps," the pleasant Sanchez confirms to Zap2it. "Both of us have a very similar outlook. As passionate as we are about our jobs and as ambitious as we are about our careers, it's not going to change how we feel about ourselves. It goes so up-and-down, we don't like to drink the Kool-Aid, as I like to say."
Comedic legend Dan Aykroyd is in talks to join Tammy along with Allison Janney who is also in talks to appear in New Line’s Melissa McCarthy upcoming project. They’ll both star opposite McCarthy herself, Ben Falcone, Susan Sarandon and Mark Duplass. McCarthy and Falcone stand behind the Tammy script with Falcone on board to direct the whole thing. The flick will feature McCarthy as a fast food restaurant employee who, after finding that her husband is cheating on her, quits her job and decides to drive to Mount Rushmore to rediscover herself, but with her alcoholic, foul-mouthed, diabetic grandmother (Sarandon) who insists on making the...

In his post-Friday Night Lights years, Zach Gilford hasn't had the hit we might have hoped from the promising actor. Both TV shows in which he starred were cancelled in or after their first seasons, and the action thriller The Last Stand, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and released last January, has grossed just $12 million domestically at the box office, falling short of its estimated $45 million budget, even when factoring in its worldwide gross to date. Fortunately, for those of us who loved Gilford in his role as the sweet Matt Saracen in Friday Night Lights, the actor continues to line up projects, the most recent of which is Devil's Due. There hasn't been a lot of information released about the film just yet, however, Deadline says 20th Century Fox thriller starts shooting next week in Dominican Republic and New Orleans, and that it's set to be helmed by Radio Silence, »
Gilford will take on the lead role in the thriller.
Plot details surrounding the upcoming film are currently slim, but the horror movie does have a found footage element.
Filming on Devil's Due will kick off this week in the Dominican Republic and New Orleans.

Just a quick casting news – Allison Miller (probably best known from that Terra Nova thing) and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) are set to star in an upcoming found footage horror flick titled Unwanted (aka Devil’s Due). Unfortunately, at this moment not much is known about the project, except that Radio Silence, the directing team behind V/H/S is in charge for the movie. But I guess that’s enough for all horror fans? So, thanks to THR, the only thing we know about Unwanted is that Lindsay Devlin is responsible for the script, while the rest of the story goes like this: …the plot is »

Last week’s pilot of NBC’s “Jekyll and Hyde” drama Do No Harm premiered to disastrously low ratings.
Although The Office and the series finale of the beloved 30 Rock would seem like promising lead-ins for any show, audiences apparently unified in switching their TV sets off at 10 p.m.
Do No Harm, starring Steven Pasquale as a bipolar doctor, posted the lowest ratings ever for a broadcast scripted series premiere during the regular season, raking in a 0.9 rating in the key demo. Adding to its list of accomplishments, it was also the least-watched drama in TV history among total viewers, drawing only 3.1 million viewers.
Of course, it had some tough competition, namely CBS’s Elementary and ABC’s Scandal. However, it’s likely the pilot’s performance will bury the series after just one week on the tube.

The Last Stand, 2013.
Directed by Kim Ji-woon.
The leader of a drug cartel busts out of a courthouse and speeds to the Mexican border, where the only thing in his path is a sheriff and his inexperienced staff.
He said he’d be back someday. And now, after a few tiny cameos and a whole lot of governing, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns on the silver screen, ten years after his last starring role in the not-all-that-terrible Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Since then, the Stathams, Diesels, Rocks and Cages have tried to fill the huge void, but none of them have ever come close to replicating the concoction of action, comedy, and horrendously good one-liners that are the staple of The Governator.
His return is The Last Stand, »
The Last Stand is released in UK cinemas today. We’ve been fortunate enough to interview Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jaimie Alexander already for the movie, both of which are here if you missed them. The final interview is with comedy side-kick Johnny Knoxville who you’ll know best from the Jack-Ass TV show and movies.
Joe Cunningham takes on the task of interviewing him and finds out if the only reason he took on the role was work with the action legend Mr. Schwarzenegger. Turns out it pretty much was but you can’t blame him can you?!
The Last Stand is released in UK cinemas today and if you’ve missed our review, have a read here. I’ve seen it too and am not ashamed to say I loved it! The Last Stand also stars Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Johnny Knoxville, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford, Genesis Rodriguez »

Towards the end of The Last Stand, Ray Owens (Arnold Schwarzenegger) struggles to his feet and is asked ‘How are you, sheriff?’ ‘Old’, Owens replies, in a decidedly un-American accent. ‘Ah, you got a ways to go yet’, the local reassures, mercifully stopping short of winking at the camera, given the carnage we’ve just witnessed.
Tongue-in-cheek dialogue aside, it’s a neat précis of the pros and cons of Schwarzenegger’s first leading role since 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The Last Stand is tonally schizophrenic, formulaic to the point of parody and lacking any real sense of place or logic.
Conversely, it’s knowing, fun, and packed with so many fights and quips that Lionsgate could have conceivably have plastered ‘He’s still got it, honest’ on the posters (perhaps in the place of Johnny Knoxville, whose minor role certainly doesn’t merit equal billing with »

The five-time world champion skater wed her U.S. Coast Guard beau Clay Pell in a beautiful ceremony on Jan. 19 in Providence, R.I. Congrats to the happy couple & see the pics!

In the new movie, 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 a sleepy border town called, Sommerton Junction. However, this peaceful existence ,ends »
The Expendables 2 was only a mild teaser of the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to making action films. What we've really been waiting for is his own action vehicle, and it finally hits theaters this week in The Last Stand. There's an added element to this movie that makes it special and ramps up the anticipation, at least for a few movie fans.
The Last Stand marks Korean director Jee-woon Kim's first American film. He's directed some amazing films, among them I Saw the Devil, The Good, the Bad, the Weird and A Tale of Two Sisters. He's proven to be a director who can handle violence with ease, and is able to get great performances out of some memorable villains. The quality of The Last Stand isn't quite up to par with the level of quality in his earlier Korean films, but some of his signature elements »

Chicago – With enough hair plugs, bronzer and hormone injections to float a rejuvenation clinic, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back from his political meanderings and is an action star once again in the shoot-’em-up “The Last Stand.” Johnny Knoxville lends some comic relief.
This is an okay comic book-type movie, even interesting at some points, but it isn’t anything new or special. Arnold revitalizes his stoic catch-phrase-rapping character with few steps lost, save for the furrowed face lines in close-up. The FBI’s incompetence, and the subsequent waste of tax dollars in trying to catch an escaped convict – during our ongoing debt crisis – is laughable, and the use of firearms and the way that people die is questionable timing one month after Newtown. But hell, these type of movies don’t care and neither did the preview audience in attendance, cheering each quality kill.
Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) of Sommerton Junction, »

Directed by: Jee-woon Kim
Running Time: 1 hr 47 mins
Release Date: January 18, 2013
Plot: The leader of a drug cartel (Eduardo Noriega) busts out of prison and heads to the Mexican border. A local sheriff (Schwarzenegger) and duties are the only thing that stand in his way.
Who’S It For? Did you need Schwarzenegger back in a leading action role? Well, this is what you get. I was curious for this one, but not excited. In fact, I’m more excited about Zach Gilford’s career than Schwarzenegger’s.
Cool moments, but no care. The Last Stand walks you through the beats of an action movie, with some familiar 80s-style moments, and an icon who thinks he’s still getting it done.
For quite a while it seems there are two separate stories going on in The Last Stand. »
