Arnold Schwarzenegger with The Last Stand in May

By Patrick Luce Apr 25, 2013, 17:27 GMT

When the leader of a drug cartel escapes from the FBI and attempts to make his way to Mexico, it’s up to Arnold Schwarzenegger to stop him in his tracks in The Last Stand blast to Blu-ray, DVD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on May 21 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

The film will also be available for Digital Download on April 30 - three weeks prior to the Blu-ray, DVD and Video on Demand release.

Along with Schwarzenegger, The Last Stand features an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie), Rodrigo Santoro (What To Expect When You’re Expecting), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Luis Guzmán (Arthur), Eduardo Noriega (Vantage Point), Peter Stormare (TV’s “Prison Break”), Zach Gilford (TV’s “Friday Night Lights”) and Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge).  

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 (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 (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 (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.

Blu-ray and DVD special features include:

“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” featurette
