BEVERLY HILLS -- He's baaa-aaack!

After a seven-year stint playing Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger has made good on his promise to return to the big screen, roaring back from Sacramento with guns a-blazing in The Last Stand.

While the movie -- a throwback to the sort of over-the-top action pictures Schwarzenegger used to crank out back in the day -- would seem to be a good fit for the Ah-nuld persona, he hadn't originally envisioned such a full-throttle return to showbiz.

"First of all, it's great to be back," declares Schwarzenegger, looking dapper and extra-bronzed following a holiday ski trip with his family in Sun Valley, Idaho.

"The only thing is, when you have left the movie business for seven years, it's kind of a scary thing to come back, because you don't know if you're accepted or not. Things change very quickly in our business."
