BOX OFFICE: Arnold Schwarzenegger's THE LAST STAND Flops In North America

Despite it marking Arnold Schwarzenegger's seemingly highly anticipated return to the big screen, Jee-woon Kim's The Last Stand has flopped at the North American box office with an estimated 4-day weekend total of a paltry $6.6 million. Read on for details!


Despite a 'B' CinemaScore from audiences, Jee-woon Kim's The Last Stand has failed to make any sort of significant impact at the North American box office. Released in time for the long Martin Luther King holiday weekend, the action movie marked Arnold Schwarzenegger's return as a leading man to the big screen and also features the likes of Johnny Knoxsville (Jackass) and Jaimie Alexander (Thor). The film opened to only $1.9 million on Friday and looks likely to gross less than $6.6 million for the weekend, possibly even less. That meant it only managed to reach NINTH place in the Top 10. "Nobody wants to see Arnold," a rival studio exec told Deadline yesterday. Guillermo Del Toro's Mama took the top spot with a predicted $30.5 million for the 4-day weekend.






Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Kim Jee-woon’s hard-hitting US directorial debut, THE LAST STAND. 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.
