Courtney talks to stunt driver from latest Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, “The Last Stand”

This weekend on PowerBlock, Courtney sits down with stunt driver Jeremy Fry, one of the stunt drivers from the new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie “The Last Stand.” He’ll show us some of the cool action sequence, plus, how our friends at Royal Purple played a key role in the film! The movie is about Schwarzenegger’s character, Sheriff Ray Owens, a former LA cop who fights crime in the tiny border town of Sommerton Junction, and has to rise to the ultimate crime-fighting call when the most notorious drug kingpin escapes and heads to the border in a Corvette ZR-1. With just one chance to intercept him before he slips across the border forever, an unforgettable last stand between Schwarzenegger’s character and the drug kingpin ensues. Jeremy will talk about driving and wrecking some of those gorgeous Vettes, including a story about what it was like to race through a corn field.

Also featured this week is Shane Watkins ’68 C-10. You can catch all of this, plus three new episodes, this week on PowerBlock, January 12 & 13.

Check out the movie trailer below! “The Last Stand” hits theaters January 18.
