Arnold Schwarzenegger and Company at the World Premiere of The Last Stand

Kim Jee-won, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jaimie Murray and Johnny Knoxville at The World Premiere Of Lionsgate "The Last Stand"

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The Last Stand” looks and feels like an old school action movie, and if you happen to be a fan of that kind of cinema, then it’s unlikely you’ll be disappointed by the film. The movie doesn’t open until this Friday, though, but the film’s world premiere recently took place at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on January 14, 2013 in Hollywood, California.

Check out the pics from the premiere below, check them outers.

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.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whitaker, Eduardo Noriega, Rodrigo Santoro, Jaimie Alexander, Luis Guzmán, Peter Stormare, Zach Gilford and Genesis Rodriguez.

Directed by Kim Jee-woon and written by Andrew Knauer and Jeffrey Nachmanoff.

Make a stand this Friday January 18, 2013.
