Schwarzenegger And Knoxville Whip Out Big Gun For Final Poster For ‘The Stand’

Schwarzenegger And Knoxville Whip Out Big Gun For Final Poster For ‘The Stand’

You’ve seen the final trailer, so you already know you’re in for a bang-up good time! In the upcoming THE LAST STAND, Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his long-awaited big screen return playing a fearless cop protecting his border town at any cost, alongside Johnny Knoxville! Take a look at Arnold and Johnny in this FINAL POSTER for the upcoming action-packed THE LAST STAND, courtesy of Lionsgate.

Catch the guys on the big screen when THE LAST STAND hits theaters nationwide January 18, 2013!!

Official Synopsis: 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.

Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables’ Explodes Onto Blu-ray and DVD!

Sylvester Stallone’s ‘The Expendables’ Explodes Onto Blu-ray and DVD!

It was a feat that many said couldn’t be done. The mission? To gather an all-star cast consisting of the biggest names in action movie history and put the into one explosive flick that oozes testosterone! It was an action movie fans’ wet dream but questions still remained: Could it be done and who could pull it off? As it turns out, there was only one man was brave enough to take on this ultimate challenge. A man who wasn’t afraid to take it to the edge and beyond. That man is none other than the iconic Sylvester Stallone. One of the most influential action heroes of all time, Stallone teamed with writer David Callaham to lay the ground work for The Expendables. Once the ball was rolling, Stallone made calls to the biggest names in action cinema and the rest was history! Answering Stallone’s call to arms for the over-the-top action that the fans have been craving a were a mix the hottest action stars from today and yesteryear, such as Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke. To round out the cast, Sly even managed to wrangle two cameos from sliver screen superpowers Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

The story begins simply enough, a group of mercenaries are hired for a mission that no one else is brave enough to tackle: Infiltrate a small South American country and overthrow it’s diabolical dictator. The story focuses mainly on Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), who are the real deal when it comes to a modern day action duos. Once the mission is underway, the mercs realize things aren’t exactly what they seem and all hell breaks loose — much to the delight of action junkies worldwide! Outgunned and outnumbered Ross and Christmas scramble back to The States to assemble their team, only to return to the island and dish out piping hot servings of street justice!

For me, The Expendables not only offers a nostalgic gaze back to the films that I discovered in the mom and pop video stores of my suburban youth. At it’s core, The Expendables is a triumphant return to the classic action cinema of the mid-to-late 80s that made icons out of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Having been raised on the work of many of the actors involved, it was a dream come true to see the finally united onscreen. Not only does the film fill an obvious void in action cinema, I found the film serves as an homage to the films of my father’s youth that featured iconic casts, such as The Wild Bunch, The Magnificent Seven and The Dirty Dozen. While it won’t win any awards for it’s plot, the movie has it where it counts when it comes to action and wastes no time getting down to the nitty gritty. The film is a knock-down, drag out, over the top 80s throwback action blast that represents some of the best qualities of the 80s action flicks on which star/director Sylvester Stallone cut his teeth. Guns, muscles, car chases, explosions, martial arts, beautiful women and a plethora of one lines, The Expendables has it all! Hopefully, we won’t have to wait another decade to see these superpowers re-team!

Rated: 4.5 out of 5

The Expendables explodes onto Blu-Ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on November 23rd!

Round 5 Introduces First “UFC Live” Series With Couture – Liddell From UFC 43

Round 5 Introduces First “UFC Live” Series With Couture – Liddell From UFC 43

Round 5 has taken the next step forward in its offering of UFC collectibles with today’s introduction of “UFC Live” Series 1, featuring all-time UFC greats Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell from their historic UFC 43: Meltdown bout. The two superstars will be sculpted in highly-detailed, realistic, scaled figure statues, packaged separately and available at retail during the 2010 holiday season, it was announced today by Barron Lau, Round 5 CEO and co-founder and Damon Lau, president and co-founder.

Created with the higher-end collector in mind, these premium figures will measure a full 10 inches and will also come with a UFC-branded display stand. Together, the Couture and Liddell figures, created at a 1/7 scale, complete a battle scene from the epic June 6, 2003, first meeting between the mixed martial arts legends.

Fans can view an image of the “UFC Live” Series 1 at http://www.round5mma.com/blog/.

“’UFC Live’ is Round 5’s first scale figure, with an even higher degree of detail and realism than ‘Ultimate Collector,’” said Damon Lau. “Collectors and fans will notice a distinctly different look and feel to the line.”

“Commemorating the memorable Couture-Liddell bout is a perfect way to launch ‘UFC Live,” added Barron Lau. “Putting the two items together creates a classic scene from the fight which in many ways propelled both of their careers toward stardom.”

“UFC Live” will also feature a distinctive premium packaging that accentuates the figures and highlights the event for each pair in the series, in this case UFC 43. Round 5 is currently planning future “UFC Live” series figure pairs, to be announced.

“UFC Live” is scheduled to hit Toys“R”Us stores this fall and other retailers later in the year. A list of retailers for all Round 5 products can be found at www.Round5MMA.com.

Round 5 To Offer Exclusive “3-Pack” With Buffer, Preview Of “Live” Series With Couture, Liddell At UFC® Fan Expo™ In Boston

After two hugely successful UFC® Fan Expo™ events in Las Vegas, Round 5, a leader in producing mixed martial arts collectible figurines, will give East Coast UFC fans the first chance to experience two significant new collections at the upcoming UFC Fan Expo, August 27-28 at the John B. Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

Round 5 can be found at Booth No. 2524 on the convention floor.

The “3-packs” are enhanced versions of the new Round 5 “Versus” line, distinctly new figurines highlighting battle scenes from great UFC matches, supplemented with a Buffer figure, not available in any other Round 5 Series at mass retailers in the U.S. The three matchups available in limited quantities at the Expo are “Rampage” Jackson vs. Wanderlei Silva (UFC 92), Tito Ortiz vs. Chuck Liddell (UFC 66) and Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar (UFC 100).

Bruce Buffer will also sign autographs at the Round 5 booth at the Expo.

Expo attendees will also get the first look at UFC “Live,” highly-detailed, realistic, scaled figure statues, packaged separately. Created with the higher-end collector in mind, these premium figures will measure a full 10 inches and will also come with a UFC-branded display stand. Together, the Couture and Liddell figures, created at a 1/7 scale, complete a battle scene from the epic June 6, 2003, first meeting between the mixed martial arts legends.

“UFC Fan Expo arrives at the perfect time for us to offer the exclusive 3-packs with Bruce Buffer and to show fans and collectors the exciting new figurines coming for the holiday season,” said Damon Lau, Round 5 president and co-founder. “The ‘Live’ line is completely different from anything we have produced, and we are sure that fans will notice and enjoy that distinctive look and feel.”

Fans will also be able to purchase the new “Ultimate Collector” Series 3 figurines at the Expo, including new representations of Rich Franklin, Anderson Silva, Antonio Nogueira, Diego Sanchez and both UFC and PRIDE versions of Wanderlei Silva.

“Ultimate Collector” Series 1 and 2 are now available at leading retailers across North America, and Series 3 will be available shortly. A list of retailers can be found at www.Round5MMA.com.
