The Samaritan trailer for the upcoming Sylvester Stallone-led superhero film has been released, showcasing Stallone’s retired hero as he begrudgingly returns to fighting evil.
The new trailer gives us our most in-depth look at Stallone as the titular Samaritan, who disappeared after an incident over two decades prior to the start of the film. His character performs some stunning feats, and finds himself once again in the world of crime-fighting and heroism.
Check out the Samaritan trailer below:
“In the film, thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith is actually a legend hiding in plain sight,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
Samaritan is produced by Sylvester Stallone and Braden Aftergood, with Scut, David Kern, Adam Rosenberg, and Guy Riedel serving as executive producers. The film will be available for streaming on August 26, exclusively on Prime Video.
