Prime Video released the first trailer for Sylvester Stallone’s vigilante superhero film, Samaritan.
The film follows 13-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) as he believes that his reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Sylvester Stallone) is the super-powered vigilante Samaritan who was reported dead following a duel with his rival, Nemesis, in a fiery warehouse.
With crime on the rise in Granite City, Cleary aims to bring Samaritan out of retirement and help save the city from complete and utter devastation.
Take a look at the trailer:
Stallone explained why he wanted to be part of this film, “I love action films that also have heart. I wanted to be involved with Samaritan because this story has many layers that I think people can relate to.”
