WAS THIS ARNOLD'S LAST STAND?

  He's back....but it seems like very few people care.
 The Last Stand, Arnold Schwarzenegger's movie comeback and his first starring role in nearly a decade, has flopped badly at the box office and now doubts are being cast about several of his upcoming movies, with Hollywood analysts questioning whether the 67-year-old former California governor has any future as an action star. 
 The Last Stand's dismal performance---it grossed only $7 million on its three day opening weekend and after three weeks has only taken in less than $12 million---indicates that a combination of personal scandal and longtime absence from the screen could mean the beginning of the end of the Governator's screen career.
  He has two more films in the can awaiting release ---The Tomb in which he and Sylvester Stallone play prisoners who mount a bold escape, and Ten in which he plays the commander of an elite Drug Enforcement Agency squad that steals from a cartel.
   "If they work, he's fine," says one agent. "But if they follow The Last Stand, he's done."
