A Brief Note on The Amazon Prime Upcoming Samaritan Movie
Samaritan is a dark genre superhero movie, written by Bragi F. Schut starring Sylvester Stallone along with Javon Walton, Pilou Asbæk, Martin Starr, Moises Arias, and Dascha Polanco. According to director Julius Avery, this movie will show Stallone doing things that he had once paused, “This is a big event movie – we see our heroes kicking ass,” he shared. “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.”
Javon Walton is playing the role of a young boy who realizes that a famed superhero (played by Stallone), who was thought to have gone missing after an epic battle twenty years ago, may in fact still be around.
Amazon Prime Video movie Samaritan will be released on August 26, 2022.
