If you're looking for the lowdown on the fifth Rambo film, you're in the right place. Before you head out to see Sly Stallone lay waste to some bad guys again, here's everything you need to know about what the soldier is up to in Rambo: Last Blood. Remember: he'll give you a war you won't believe.
While the Rambo series is definitely one of Stallone's babies, there are still a lot of other people helping to bring the latest story to life.
Adrian Grunberg is in the director's chair for Last Blood. It's only his second feature film as director, following the 2012 Mel Gibson vehicle Get the Gringo. However, Grunberg has served as an assistant director or second unit director on several films since the '90s, including Apocalypto, Jarhead, Man on Fire, and The Legend of Zorro.
Last Blood's screenplay is credited to Matthew Cirulnick. Like Grunberg, the writer doesn't have a ton of credits to his name his most high-profile credit to date is as creator of the Amazon series Absentia.
Unsurprisingly, Stallone also had a hand in writing the film. David Morrell receives the standard "based on characters by" credit for his 1972 novel First Blood, though the author has clarified that he's had no involvement with the Rambo films since the first three.
We'll be able to see what happens in the new one when it hits theaters on September 19, 2019.
Rambo has evolved quite a bit over the decades. What started as a somewhat quiet, psychological exploration of the effects of war has turned into a massive spectacle of revenge and blood-soaked slaughter as the films have progressed. Last Blood will continue to ratchet up the body count when John Rambo takes on a violent Mexican cartel. Keep watching the video to see here's what you need to know about Rambo: Last Blood!
