UPDATED: Arnold’s Aftermath (2017) News

UPDATED (03/21): Here is the global trailer for this movie, see directly below.

UPDATED (14/3):  Just to add some news to this updated ‘Aftermath’ article, we have a new poster for this movie. See below.  Expect the first reviews to start rolling in any time now, hopefully from this site as well.  Will this be a hit or miss from Arnold?

UPDATED 2X: Well gentlemen, above is the trailer for this movie.  What do you think? Arnold looks like he’s putting in some good acting work there.


UPDATED:  It looks like we have the release date for this movie.  Expect a limited theatrical run on March 31st and a DVD release on the same day.  Here’s the synopsis too;

Inspired by real events, AFTERMATH tells a story of guilt and revenge after an air traffic controller’s (Scoot McNairy) error causes the death of a construction foreman’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) wife and daughter. Following the devastating plane crash, the two strangers’ lives become inextricably bound together.

I’m not sure I understand the wisdom of releasing the movie in the cinema on the same day as the DVD but there you go…

PREVIOUSLY: It might have been a legit concern if some suspected that Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Aftermath (previously titled 478) may have gone the PG-13 route.  That doesn’t look to be the case though, thankfully.  Filmratings has declared the movie an ‘R’ rated affair.

The movie stars Maggie Grace and is directed by Elliott Lester.  It is based on the airline accident that occurred in July of 2002 and on the events that took place 478 days later.

All I can say is that I’d rather have a small, earnest adult Schwarzenegger movie than a bloated family movie that crashes and burns at the box office.  Or, even better, a large, violent movie for adults at the box office called The Legend of Conan!

  • Anoyster

    I’m just waiting and hoping for Legend of Conan followed by retirement by Arnie.

    • Luke

      Besides appearing in the Expendables sequels though😉

    • AlTeo

      R rated Legend of Conan (or Predator, if he even is in the film at all), then end his franchise work there. Terminator is dead to me after Genisys. Whatever he does from that point onwards I may watch out of curiosity, but he is done in the franchise-film arena.


        R rated Predator (Arnie in it like Ford in TFA), then hard R rated King Conan, then finishes with fuckin so hard R it hurts Terminator 6 where he plays the villain T800 again directed by Cameron (as he cancels some of the Avatar sequels when A2 doesn’t do so big)

  • Just Some Polack

    R rating is always a good news, but I’m not sure if I want to watcch this sellout anymore.

    • Gabriel Carvalho

      Why is he a sellout ?

      • Just Some Polack

        1. Pissing on his heritage (Terminator Genisys)
        2. Choosing lame scripts
        3. Stupid publicity stunts
        4. Lying to his fans’ faces
        5. Sudden, unexplained change of his political views
        … and a cherry on top:
        6. Appearing in a mobile game commercial

        • Gabriel Carvalho

          for me its all good

    • Barney Ross

      Yep Arnold fucked up big time i’m still pissed at him but he needs to man-up and stop making pg13s forever

  • Serbius

    Arnold is done in the movie business. Fuck this

  • AlTeo

    I’m on the fence for this… Arnold’s having a bad streak since EX3 but seeing that this is his first legit R rated film since Sabotage, and his second foray into indie drama, I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt here and not write him off just yet, even though by all accounts T5 was a bona fide disaster.

    • Sexual Chocolate

      Oh yeah, Maggie was horrible too. Wish he stick with the co-star roles. Seems to work best when he isnt the main star, for example Expendables and Escape Plan. Escape Plan was actually pretty good, IMO. I just thought Expendables 3 was overall bad since they decided to tone it down and go with team baby face.

  • Mucho Macho

    So why you voting for Hillary Arnold?

  • AlTeo

    Elliot Lester made the overlooked crime thriller Blitz with Jason Statham five years ago, not a bad film but now he’s dealing in far more somber territory:

    • Sexual Chocolate

      Didnt like that movie, but I did like Safe.

  • Gabriel Carvalho

    hell yeah

  • Barney Ross

    R rated? FUCK YEAH!!!! Welcome back, Arnold, now be in The Predator and Conan

  • Mucho Macho

    I also don’t get them releasing the movie in theaters and on DVD on the same day.
    But then again there a lot of things about Hollywood I don’t understand.

  • Gabriel Carvalho

    Liked it

  • Mucho Macho

    Looks good.
    This Is The Stuff Arnold should be doing instead of that bullshit Celebrity Apprentice show

  • Goro

    Looks like another Magie movie. I’ll probably pass it.
