WATCH: Sylvester Stallone back to his roots in new trailer for ‘Rambo: Last Blood’
Sylvester Stallone unveiled a new trailer of the upcoming fifth installment in the “Rambo” saga. The actor reprises his role as a now-retired John Rambo, compelled to lend a helping hand to a friend.
The American action star posted the trailer for “Rambo: Last Blood” on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Aug. 20.
The sequence of scenes established parallels between the upcoming film and the first two chapters in the saga, 1982’s “Rambo: First Blood” and 1985’s “Rambo: First Blood Part II”.
Still in top shape at 73, Stallone’s muscles are put to good use to save the life of his friend’s daughter, who has been kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel. With the battlefield far behind but the post-traumatic stress disorder still in effect, the retired soldier will have to face his demons and set aside peaceful retirement on his ranch.
Following 2008’s “Rambo”, the franchise’s fourth film, Sylvester Stallone has entrusted Adrian Grunberg with the direction of the next chapter. The most successful chapter in the series so far remains “Rambo: First Blood Part II”, with a total of $300 million in receipts.
The new movie is slated for release in September. RGA/JB
