Final poster for Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand features a gun and a Knoxville

Nov. 14, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The final poster for Arnold Schwarzenegger's comeback film, THE LAST STAND, has arrived and it's a rather lackluster affair, featuring a Gatling gun and Johnny Knoxville looking like the village idiot.  I don't understand how he gets second billing.  My guess is that faith in Schwarzenegger to carry a film is at a low, so the hope is to bring in the Jackass crowd.  Smart move, I guess, but the last two posters for the film sold it much better than this one. 

Here it is:

I'm looking forward to the film, as it looks like a good, fun throwback for ol' Arnie and a solid launching point for his much-better looking slate to follow.  Knoxville is great in the Jackass films, because that's where he belongs.  Seeing him in just about anything else, just playing himself, is like a parody anymore.  At least Jamie Alexander is there...but, I digress.

THE LAST STAND, directed by Kim Jee-Woon, and starring Schwarzenegger, Knoxville, Jaimie Alexander, Peter Stormare, Harry Dean Stanton, Luis Guzman, Rodrigo Santoro, Forest Whitaker, Genesis Rodriguez, and Zach Gilford opens on January 18, 2013.

I'm actually a fan of Knoxville doing his own thing, but he is just pissing me off so far of what I have seen. Arnie looks badass though.

It hurts the film, big time. And I don't like the dialogue or the jokey tone of the trailer... "there's something off" about the whole thing. Hopefully it's just poor marketing, and the finished product is much, much better. I hope!

Oh, and maybe they have started to question the star power of Schwarzenegger after the poor sales of his book. Hence the second billing for Knoxville.

I thought Knoxville made for a more than decent sidekick in Walking Tall. It is everything else about this movie that is kind of turning me off.

Here's what I don't get. Forest Whitaker is to me a much bigger name. And is second-billed. Then again, I rarely go to movies based solely on their posters.

I'm not a fan of Whitaker, but I agree with you. The guy's an Academy Award winner.

movie looks awesome but

what a lame poster. Seriously this would only be a good poster if the movie was going to be in 3D or something which it definitely isn't... I don't get it. It just looks like some mediocre fan poster with generic font text all over it. I'll take that cartoony poster over this any day, and the teaser poster too!

There are two types of comedic side-kicks, those that add some fun and lighten the mood in serious action films, and those that are over-the-top and have lame jokes. Knoxville looks like the latter based on the trailers, so he hurts the film for me.
