Lionsgate has officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of Kim Jee-Woon‘s The Last Stand. The action film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Zach Gilford, Forest Whitaker, Luis Guzman, and Johnny Knoxville. The Last Stand will be available for purchase online and in stores beginning April 30, 2013.
In the film, Schwarzenegger stars as Sheriff Owens, a man who has resigned himself to a life of fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction after leaving his LAPD post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with failure and defeat after his partner was crippled. After a spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the hemisphere is hurtling toward the border at 200 mph in a specially outfitted car with a hostage and a fierce army of gang members. He is headed, it turns out, straight for Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement will have their last opportunity to make a stand and intercept him before he 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 accepts responsibility for one of the most daring face offs in cinema history. Jaimie Alexander, Eduardo Noriega, Harry Dean Stanton, and Genesis Rodriguez co-star in the film.
The Last Stand was released in January of 2013 and grossed over $12 million at the box office.
The Blu-ray edition of The Last Stand features a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track and numerous extras, including: Not In My Town: Making The Last Stand featurette; Cornfield Chaos featurette; The Dinkum Firearm and Historic Weaponry Museum featurette; Actor-Cam Anarchy: with Johnny Knoxville and Jaimie Alexander; and deleted/extended & alternate scenes.
