Stallone’s Long Awaited SAMARITAN Hits Amazon Prime this August!

Sylvester Stallone’s long delayed dark superhero entry Samaritan is forgoing theaters and hitting Amazon Prime this August. Check out the official poster and images to the movie that is going to make fans look at the superhero genre differently!


Launching Globally on Prime Video on August 26

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.

“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. It’s something of a morality tale that is also very exciting to watch. We are thrilled that this will be seen globally on Prime Video where my fans and all audiences can enjoy it together around the world.” – Sylvester Stallone

Samaritan has been kicking around for a few years and was a victim of COVID seeing its release get delayed over and over again. It doesn’t help that test screenings have been less than receptive so it’ll be interesting to finally see a trailer for the film. Stallone is solid even in uneven films so I assume he’ll be the best part of the movie so we shall see. I’m excited to see it and witness what it does for a genre that has been over saturated with product in the last ten years.
