Sylvester Stallone, 72, will be thrilled that the action star will be back as Rambo in “Rambo: Last Blood.” The movie will be officially released on September 20.

In it, Stallone will return as John J. Rambo. However, this time he travels to Mexico to rescue his friend's daughter after she gets kidnapped by a Mexican cartel.

The actor was first seen in the movie franchise in 1982 for “First Blood.” That was the first time he acted as the Vietnam veteran and former US Army Special Forces soldier.

In the 2019 version, he appears to have taken a more quiet life working on a ranch. However, but when the daughter of one of his friends is kidnapped, he has to battle against one of Mexico's most violent organizations.

The 2019 film was directed by Adrian Grunberg. In the trailer, Stallone could be heard speaking in a voiceover saying: “I lived in a world of death. I've watched people I've loved die. Some fast with a bullet. Some not enough left to bury.”

At one point he’s seen riding a horse and in another scene, he shoots a bow and arrow like an expert. The movie is clearly as action-packed as its predecessor 37-years later.

Stallone has appeared in a couple of sequences including the film “Creed.” In that franchise, the actor was reprising his well-known role of Rocky Balboa, the boxer.

According to Lionsgate Movies, the latest movie will be the fifth and final installment of the Rambo series. Stallone was meant to direct the film but he only co-wrote the script.

He will star alongside Paz Vega, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Adrianna Barraza, Yvette Monreal, and Joaquin Cosio. At the beginning of the year, Stallone revealed that he had no intention of starring in another “Creed” spin-off.

He revealed during a Q&A at the Cannes film festival that he “had a great idea” for a new Rocky movie. The actor shared at the time that the film would likely not be made, but “it could work.”

Stallone said

“I have a great idea for Rocky. He finds this fella who’s in the country illegally and it becomes a whole thing. It would be really phenomenal, really different. It’s like a magician. Once you’ve seen how he does the tricks you’re not impressed anymore. It’s the same thing with Rocky. You’ve seen everything, so you’re like, ‘How can it be different?’ That would be different. When you take him and throw him out of the country and he’s in another world. It could work. But I ain’t gonna do it.”
