A new trailer for Rambo: Last Blood is coming one week from today, and it will debut on franchise star Sylvester Stallone's Instagram page, according to a post by Stallone made earlier today. The fifth and final entry in the Rambo franchise is something that has been planned since 2008, and will see a very different side of John Rambo; as Stallone has previously noted, this is the first time fans will get to see him at home. That makes his roaring rampage of revenge a little bit smaller scale and a lot more personal.
In Rambo: Last Blood, an aging John Rambo is seen living a fairly simple-seeming life on his ranch while the voiceover reveals the deep impact the various horrors he's experienced over the years. He's a man haunted by his experiences, but when a new kind of fight presents himself, Rambo is seen back in the action, promising to be the one to draw last blood.
That new kind of fight Rambo finds himself taking on involves him going after a Mexican cartel who has kidnapped Gabriella, the daughter of his caretaker Maria who has become something of a family to Rambo. With the cartel using the kidnapped girls for their sex trafficking ring, Rambo embarks on a rescue mission, joined by a reporter whose own sister was also kidnapped.
"Rambo teams up with a journalist to track down and rescue a group of local girls that have been kidnapped by a Mexican sex trafficking ring, after trying to settle down to a quiet peaceful life stateside at the family ranch in Arizona after spending decades abroad," the film's official synopsis says.
“Bad things happen,” he shared. “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people getting hurt," he said. "Rambo deals with the dark side of nature that most people live with. Rocky is different, he’s more the optimist,” Stallone added, “there’s optimism and pessimism in these two characters.”
“In every film, Rambo never goes home, he goes out the to the jungle or Afghanistan," he continued. "In the new one, he does come home, but in a way he never arrives. He’s there, but he’s not. That’s what the whole story is built around. As soon as he walks outside his door, he has no more control. The world controls you."
Last Blood is the fifth and likely final entry in the Rambo franchise. The first film, First Blood, hit theaters in 1982 and was followed by Rambo: First Blood Part II in 1985, Rambo III in 1988 and Rambo in 2008. The first four movies earned the franchise over $294 million domestically and $727 million worldwide.0comments
