Good on Arnold Schwarzenegger for not completely relying on old glories. Sure, he's mostly starred in action flicks like The Expendables and *shudders* The Last Stand while reprising his most memorable role for Terminator Genisys, but he's also branched out like with the zombie drama, Maggie. Now he's taking on another genre film with dramatic elements in Aftermath, which boasts Darren Aronofsky as a producer.
Schwarzenegger plays a family man who loses everything in the blink of an eye when his wife and daughter die in a plane crash. So he seeks revenge on the air traffic controller he finds responsible for their deaths. Scoot McNairy plays that man, promising the Governator will have someone solid to work with. Apparently this is at least partly based on a true story, so don't expect Schwarzenegger to go full-on Eraser in this one.
Directed by Elliott Lester, Aftermath opens April 7th.
