Movie Preview: “Sabotage,” Arnold is over — but nobody told Hollywood

His movies, post political career, have tanked. To a one.
The inescapable conclusion one can draw from “The Last Stand” and “Escape Plan,” is that Arnold Schwarzenegger is over. He doesn’t draw. His audience has aged out of going to movies and the kids don’t dig his brand of action, his style of stardom.
But there are half a dozen projects with him in them in various stages of development.
And “Sabotage” is due out in April.
Actresses are discarded when they age out of their prime, but for some reason, Hollywood refuses to accept that with Bruce fading, Harrison reduced to supporting roles, Stallone running on fumes (and “The Expendables”), Mel an outcast — those ’80s action stars have passed their expiration dates, none more than Schwarzenegger. All the PEDs in the pharmacy can’t hide that.
