Stallone Becomes a Superhero in Samaritan (Trailer)

Stallone joins the world of superheroes by becoming Samaritan on Prime Video in August.  Originally going to be released theatrically but delayed multiple times from the pandemic, Samaritan is now a Prime Video exclusive.  Stallone star as Joe Smith aka Samaritan, who used to be the superpowered hero of Granite City but disappeared after a massive battle 25 years ago and now tries to hide who he is and live life as a sanitation worker.  A young boy, Sam Cleary (Javon Walton), puts the pieces together, figures out Joe’s secret, and then tries to get him to come back, as the city descended into a crime-ridden hellhole ruled by gangsters like Cyrus (Pilou Asbaek).  Martin Starr, Moises Arias, Dascha Polanco, Natcha Karam, and Jared Odrick co-star.  Julius Avery, who directed the surprisingly fun World War II horror mashup Overlord, is directing Samaritan and the story was previously adapted by Mythos Comics in a series of graphic novels.  The movie is out on August 26th and you can check out the trailer below.
