Amazon Prime Video has released the first trailer for Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming superhero movie Samaritan. This movie looks amazing as Stallone plays a superhero who was thought to be dead, then comes out of his superhero retirement at his old age because the world is in peril.
“Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Stallone) is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty years ago, Granite City’s super-powered vigilante, Samaritan, was reported dead after a fiery warehouse battle with his rival, Nemesis. Most believe Samaritan perished in the fire, but some in the city, like Sam, have hope that he is still alive. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.”
Stallone said in a statement: “I love action films that also have heart. I wanted to be involved with Samaritan because this story has many layers that I think people can relate to. It’s something of a morality tale that is also very exciting to watch. We are thrilled that this will be seen globally on Prime Video where my fans and all audiences can enjoy it together around the world.”
Samaritan was is directed by Julius Avery who helmed Overlord and Son of a Gun. The movie will air on August 26th, 2022, on Amazon Prime.
