Rambo: Last Blood of Stallone to release in India on 20 Sept

In this sequel, the protagonist teams up with a journalist whose half-sister has been kidnapped, just as his friend's sister, to uncover a sex-trafficking ring

Mumbai: Sylvester Stallone‘s Rambo: Last Blood will be hitting the theatres in India on 20 September. The film marks the 72-year-old actor’s fifth and final outing as the action character, John Rambo.

The franchise is based on David Morrell’s novel First Blood (1972) about a troubled Vietnam War veteran and former US Army Special Forces Soldier.

Stallone first played the part in 1982’s First Blood, which he followed up with Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Rambo III (1988) and Rambo (2008).

Last Blood, directed by Adrian Grunberg from a script by Stallone and Matt Cirulnick, will see the ‘hero’ living on a ranch in Arizona, deeply troubled and wrestling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as he picks up casual work wherever he can.

When longtime family friend and estate manager Maria informs the former soldier that her granddaughter has gone missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, he sets off with her to find the youngster.

In pursuit, the protagonist uncovers a sex-trafficking ring and teams up with a journalist whose half-sister has been kidnapped as well. He must deploy all his skills to save the girls and bring down a vicious crime lord.

The film will feature Paz Vega, Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Yvette Monreal as well in pivotal roles.

Stallone had unveiled the first look of the much-awaited film at the recently concluded Cannes Film Festival.

Last Blood will be released in India by PVR Pictures and MVP Entertainment.
