New poster for Rambo: Last Blood flexes its muscles
Rambo: Last Blood has put the marketing into overdrive, and thanks to star Sly Stallone we have the new poster for the final entry in the series. Check it out in the gallery below!
The latest chapter in the sprawling Rambo saga finds the eponymous war veteran, played again by Sylvester Stallone, coping with intense PTSD while living on a ranch in Arizona, trying to pick up casual work wherever he can. Soon his friend and estate manager Maria informs him that her granddaughter went missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, so John travels south of the border to find the youngster. The quest quickly turns into a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring, teaming up with a journalist whose half-sister has also been kidnapped. Rambo has to deploy all his skills to save the girls and bring down a vicious crime lord.
Millennium was previously planning a reboot movie with Israeli helmer Ariel Vroman (The Iceman, Criminal) behind the camera and Brooks McLaren penning the script with the aim of recasting the role created in David Morrell’s 1972 novel “First Blood” and popularized in the four films starring Sylvester Stallone. There were also plans for a proposed New Blood TV series at FOX that were also abandoned. Despite Stallone stating in 2016 that he was too old to take on the part again, the plan is for the 71-year-old actor to reprise the role one more time.
Stallone last played the role in 2008’s Rambo, which earned $113.2 million worldwide on a $50 million budget. He also wrote and directed that film.
Rambo: Last Blood begins its final vendetta in theaters September 20.
