Rambo 5’s Old Town Road trailer teases a retired Rambo story

Lionsgate just released the first teaser for Rambo: Last Blood, the fifth and final Rambo movie. Check it out here:

The trailer doesn’t give many plot details away, however, we can see that this is more of a western than the usual jungle style Rambo films. Stallone is an older, short haired Rambo who seems to be dealing with the repercussions of his grizzled past. It has a bit of a Logan vibe in that regard. The slowed down version of the Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus hit “Old Town Road” sets a more deep tone than the upbeat original version of the song.

We see a lot of Rambo taking down enemies as they come to him. Much like James Bond in Skyfall, it seems he has a rigged up base where waves of bad guys will attempt to infiltrate. Maybe some unfinished business is hunting him at his retirement ranch.

We also get a few shots of what looks like a Brazilian favela. Rambo faces a legion of armed men, by himself, on a rooftop. Rambo: Last Blood is definitely going the darker, more western route and will hopefully give a satisfactory conclusion to the Rambo franchise. After the success of the Creed movies, it’ll be nice for Sly to close out his other iconic series with a bang.

Rambo: Last Blood hits theaters this September.
