Arnold Schwarzenegger's new movie Aftermath releases intense trailer

02.07.2017

Well, that certainly wasn't what I was expecting when I clicked on a trailer for an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie called AFTERMATH. I thought maybe something post-apocalyptic, or maybe even Arnold getting revenge after a terrorist attack similar to COLLATERAL or something. But, like MAGGIE before it, this is Arnold in "actor" mode - and I'd be damned if it doesn't seem like he's actually killing it in this one.

Anyway, here's the trailer to judge the man for yourself:

And here's the synopsis:

Two strangers’ lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash. Inspired by actual events, AFTERMATH tells a story of guilt and revenge after an air traffic controller’s (Scoot McNairy) error causes the death of a construction foreman’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) wife and daughter. 

This is reportedly based on a true story (though I'm certain it's like BLOOD ON THE BLACKBOARD from THE SIMPSONS-level accurate, but whatever). Either way, it still looks pretty compelling. Also, none other than Darren Aronofsky is producing this thing, which perks my interest even more!

But what do you Schmoes think? And what is your favorite performance from Ah-nuld? Sound off below!

Meanwhile, AFTERMATH will be released April 7th, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: Arnold Schwarzenegger has fought terrorists, aliens, robots, Satan, and even himself in his varied career. We can now add some guy who's an air-traffic controller to the list!

Looks good, Scoot is a fuckin underrated actor that is a joy to watch

I love Scoot McNairy, Halt and Catch Fire is one of the best shows on tv and he just kills it in every role (minus BvS where he was given little to do other than be wheelchair bound and Superman crybaby fodder).

I didn't like Maggie, but Arnold is very surprising when it comes to adding emotional depth to his characters these days. He looks like he is really trying to be more than 80s Arnie these days and its much needed resurgance for his career. He can't keep doing action movies, he is old

So we are getting thrillers and dramas from him and should appreciate his attempt at staying modern in his older age. I'd rather have this Anrold than expendables 3 Arnold any day.

Jesus

Looks depressing as hell. And not just because Arnold is playing a grandfather.

this will be a huge flop and accelerate Arnold career to shitty VOD actioners along with Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage etc etc ...

Of course. Anytime there's a glimmer of emotional depth or substance, people like you have to bitch. You seem to want carbon copies of Commando over and over again. Seeing as how the general public seems to only like Superhero movies and endless Fast and the Furious sequels, I'm sure it won't make it's money back and we'll get even less solid dramas.

yeah sure, and every time an actor goes out of his comfort zone (i.e. a comedy/action actor does a drama or a dramatic actor does a comedy), there is people like you to say : "wow, amazing, give him an oscar right now !"

Show me where I said anything about giving anyone an oscar. Save your fallacies for someone gullible.

Looks damn interesting. Schwarzenegger seems to age like a fine wine and Scoot McNairy is a pretty damn fine actor on his own, so Im sold on this.

I was planning to see Aftermath anyway. However, I have to now. Arnold's character is facing something that I have in real life. A negligent person killed my uncle years ago, and he has heartlessly never apologized even when asked to do so. Arnold's character indicates that all he wants is an apology, and I completely connected. Perhaps, the script is a great one that will help me--and others--work-out feelings a bit. Otherwise, it will at least be interesting to encounter art examining such a

Aftermath should provide an interesting compare and contrast with not only real life but with Schwarzenegger's past films as well. For example, Collateral Damage and Sabotage present similar protagonists.

Looks half way decent, but I smell another flop for Arnold...

I don't see this movie finding a large mainstream audience. Not sure what the budget is on this, but it better be pretty low if they want to be profitable. The trailer didn't engage me enough to want to see it in theaters and it pretty much gave away the whole movie barring the actual "apology" that Arnold will beat out of that guy.

That does not look like a movie made for the "mainstream audience" and I doubt that Schwarzenegger needs any big Blockbuster hit at that certain point in his career. It looks like he want to challenge himself, picking projects of interest, which is damn fine and shows how much he has evolved as an actor.

This looks fantastic! It feels like it's been forever since Arnold has been allowed to shine except for in Maggie. I'm glad he's getting another opportunity to use and display his dramatic chops.
