Hey, NYC! Wanna See THE LAST STAND For Free?

Ben Umstead, East Coast Editor
Well, of course you do. It's Arnold Schwarzenegger's proper return to the big screen, plus Kim Jee-woon's English language debut.

I'm gonna make this really straight forward for y'all. The first 200 NYC area readers to head on over to Gofobo with the RSVP code listed below, will get passes (along with full theater info) to the screening, which takes place on January 16th. This is a very special advanced screening as you'll being seeing The Last Stand alongside New York's finest in police, fire, rescue and military personnel. So be on your best behavior, as these folks could someday save your life. Two things to note: First, this is only for NYC area readers. If you don't reside in the Five Burroughs, Long Island or Northern New Jersey, please don't be a dick and limit others chances by using the code for no real reason. Secondly, the passes do not guarantee entry. This is still first-come, first-serve, so be sure to get there at least an hour before showtime.

Okay, here you go, the golden ticket: TWITCHYNNG (Click Here to RSVP at Gofobo) 

Now, a further word on the movie:

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.  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.

The Last Stand opens in the U.S. on January 18th.
