New Schwarzenegger Poster Revealed

He said he'd be back.

 With his political career presumably behind him and that whole “marriage” thing no long taking up his time, Arnold Schwarzenegger has jumped back into the movies with both feet. He returns this Friday for another extended cameo in The Expendables 2, followed by a starring role in January’s  The Last Stand. Lionsgate released an image of the poster for the film today, and it’s about what we’d expect from everyone’s favorite Teutonic bad-ass:

The synopsis of the film reads as follows:

“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’ 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.”

Reminds me of Clint Eastwood. I wonder if that's .44 magnum or that newer S&W .500 magnum

I'll pretty much watch just about anything with Arnie.

Yeah, I'll end up seeing this I think. Hope it's not a stupid as the synopsis makes it sound - why mention the type of car the bad guy is driving? Is it a shameless appeal to petrol-heads? Good to see Arnie looking badass again though.

Why is that a bad thing SmokingFrog? It's suppose to appeal to somebody. But it's probably more of a product placement deal with GM

 Gee what an original walking tall, fist full of dollars, copland, plot there.  All he needs now is hearing loss in one ear, a baseball bat, and a poncho, and the cliche's will be complete.

 @wise, definitely a S&W .500; I'm glad he's back!

 A newer version of Walking Tall.......Ray Owens with one heck of an accent. I love Hollywood.  hehe

Wise, your Clint Eastwood comment is what I was thinking as well, LOL, especially with that gun.  Good to see you back!
