Lionsgate announced today that the Rambo: Last Blood release date has been set for September 20, 2019. The other films scheduled for that date are Sony Pictures’ Black and Blue and Focus Features’ Downton Abbey.
The fifth Rambo film is said to have John Rambo (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.
Adriana Barraza, Paz Vega, Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Yvette Monreal co-star in the film.
Adrian Grunberg is directing Millennium Films‘ Rambo: Last Blood from a script by Matt Cirulnick (Absentia). Avi Lerner and Kevin King are producing.
The last Rambo movie, simply titled Rambo, was released in 2008 and earned $113.2 million worldwide on a $50 million budget. Stallone directed and co-wrote that installment.
