The past couple years have seen the true return of Arnold (to the big-screen at least). From his supporting roles in The Expendables film series, to his lead roles in The Last Stand and Escape Plan, and the upcoming Terminator: Genesis in 2015, the actor/governor has returned to Hollywood with full force, with action films very similar to those he’s best known for from the 80’s.
Arnold’s latest action flick is called Sabotage, where he stars as the head of an elite DEA task force who find themselves taken down one at a time after the team robs a drug cartel’s safe house. From the trailers, the film looks brutal, fun and action-packed, directed by David Ayer (End of Watch, Training Day), and co-starring Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard and Josh Holloway.
Originally, the film was set for an April 11th release date for this Spring, but now the film has been bumped up to a March 28th release instead. The announcement comes directly from Open Road, who made a surprising decision to move the film up a couple of weeks.
Why is this surprising? Well, that’s the same day that Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah, starring Russell Crowe. Unfortunately, while Arnie’s recent films haven’t been major box office successes, Sabotage will most likely get overshadowed by the $130 million Noah, though theres still a chance that action fans will pay to see Arnold’s latest addition.
What do you think about this date change? I’m looking forward to seeing the Governator back in action, as well as seeing Noah.
Sabotage is set to hit theaters on March 28th, 2014.
