Trailer Trash: Samaritan

Action film icon Sylvester Stallone gets into violent superhero mode in the trailer for the new action film Samaritan, directed by Julius Avery (Overlord).

Based on an original idea (from a script by Escape Room screenwriter Bragi F. Schut), the film centers around a young boy (Euphoria's Javon Walton), who discovers that a superhero, who disappeared 20 years ago has been living next door to him.

“This is a big event movie – we see our heroes kicking ass,” Avery had recently told Total Film. “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, which will be released on Amazon Prime August 26, also stars Walton, Martin Starr, Pilou Asbæk, Dascha Polanco, and Moises Arias.
