Sylvester Stallone Is A Former Superhero Forced To Comes Out Of A Long Retirement In ‘Samaritan’ – Watch Trailer

Samaritan Sylvester Stallone movie

Amazon Prime Video has experienced tremendous success with superpower-theme TV stories. Now, with Samaritan, the streaming service looks set to extend that shimmer to its movie side of content.

In Samaritan, Sylvester Stallone stars as the titular character, a superhero who’s been missing in action for 25 years, but returns when a random kid who uncovers his identity needs him.

At a time where superhero content is more popular than ever, Samaritan feels like a welcome addition to the not-even-close-to-be-saturated subgenre.

The film is directed by Julius Avery based on a screenplay from a bevy of writers including Bragi F. Schut, Mark L. Smith, Zak Penn, and Chuck MacLean

Director Avery had this to say about the movie:

“We didn’t really have superheroes,” Samaritan director Julius Avery explained of growing up in the 1980s. “We only had action heroes. And Sly was the closest thing we had to a superhero. So to put him in a superhero movie? That feels fresh and cool and something that people will get a kick out of.”

“This is a big event movie – we see our heroes kicking ass,” he added. “We’re going to see Sly do things he hasn’t done in a long time, and in a really inventive way. He’s 73 years old! I’m amazed by how much he actually does. I’m telling you, most guys in their twenties wouldn’t be able to do what Sly does in this movie.”

Samaritan stars Sylvester Stallone, Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton, Martin Starr, to mention but a few.

Stream it on Amazon Prime Video starting August 26, 2022.
