'Rambo 5: Last Blood' is directed by Adrian Grunberg. He is a film director and screenwriter known for directing and co-writing the film 'Get the Gringo.' He also worked as first assistant director in films like 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps', 'Edge of Darkness' and 'Apocalypto.'

After a long wait, Lionsgate recently released the trailer for 'Rambo 5: Last Blood'. "I've lived in a world of death," we can hear the actor say in a voice-over as they show him sitting on a rocking chair in front of his country house. "I've watched people I love die. Some fast with a bullet. Some not enough left to bury," the voiceover continues.

The trailer then shifts scenes to the Mexican hills covered with houses where we can see Stallone held at gunpoint. As the voice-over continues, the scene shifts back to his house as Stallone's fearless character fights off his assailants with bows and arrows, explosives and knives. 


The new trailer of 'Rambo 5: Last Blood' features John Rambo's transition since the first film and how he evolved from a soldier to the man he is today. The video also introduces us to John's niece, with whom he spends a lot of time in what might have otherwise been considered his waning years. Of course, we then see all of that change after John's niece is kidnapped by a Mexican cartel bringing out the fighter in John yet again.
