Arnold Schwarzenegger heads up the action comedy Killing Gunther. Here's the new trailer…

Action star Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to acting has seen mixed responses over the past few years, whether it’s the entertaining yet under-appreciated – The Last Stand – or the disappointing (David Ayer’s chaotic murder-mystery action thriller, Sabotage).

Here’s hoping Arnold’s latest movie, the comedy-thriller Killing Gunther, will see him back on surer ground. Schwarzenegger plays an ageing yet effective assassin whose contract killer fraternity turns on him. With a small army of death experts out to collect the bounty, Arnold )sorry Gunther) is forced into action. 

Killing Gunther’s evidently a smaller affair than the movies Schwarzenegger was making at the height of his career – but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, given the faux-documentary style. This is the directorial debut of Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam, and also stars Cobie Smulders. There’s also a poster for you to feast your eyes on, which you’ll find below.

Killing Gunther hits cinemas and video on demand in September and October in the US. When we get a UK date, we’ll pass it along.
