MGM Pictures and Prime Video have released the first posters and images for the Sylvester Stallone-led superhero thriller Samaritan from director Julius Avery (Son of a Gun, Overlord), which sees Sly starring alongside Javon ‘Wanna’ Walton (The Umbrella Academy) and Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones); check them out here…
Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Sylvester 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.
Samaritan is launching globally on Prime Video on August 26th.
