'The Last Stand' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Thu Feb 28, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

Kim Jee-Woon's explosive action flick starring Arnold Schwarzenegger has been dated for Blu-ray release in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says 'The Last Stand' is coming to Blu-ray on April 30.

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 the sleepy border town of 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.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Not In My Town: Making The Last Stand; Cornfield Chaos; The Dinkum Firearm and Historic Weaponry Museum; Actor-Cam Anarchy: with Johnny Knoxville and Jaimie Alexander; and Deleted/Extended & Alternate Scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
