The first teaser for Rambo: Last Blood is here, and it’s taking no prisoners. The upcoming fifth installment of the sprawling action saga was released today, and it finds our hero in a pretty bad place. Then again, it wouldn’t be a Rambo movie otherwise.
The latest chapter in the sprawling Rambo saga finds the eponymous John Rambo, 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.
The film is directed by Adrian Grunberg with Matt Cirulnick (Absentia) writing the screenplay for Rambo: Last Blood, which Avi Lerner and Kevin King will produce.
Rambo: Last Blood begins its final vendetta in theaters September 20.
