"No matter where you go, there you are."


Sylvester Stallone is a missing Superhero in the first image from Samaritan

Nope, this is not an updated version of Stallone’s 1996 Daylight. It is a new movie called Samaritan, directed by Julius Avery (Son of a Gun, Overlord). The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Javon “Wanna” Walton, Martin Starr, Moisés Arias, Dascha Polanco and Pilou Asbæk. It has been described as a dark, new take on superhero movies.

A young boy comes to the realization that a famed superhero, who was thought to have gone missing after an epic battle twenty years ago, may in fact still be around.

Total Film had this first look image and Avery had this to say about the film.

We didn’t really have superheroes. We only had action heroes. And Sly was the closest thing we had to a superhero. So to put him in a superhero movie? That feels fresh and cool and something that people will get a kick out of.

This is a big event movie – we see our heroes kicking ass. 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.

I enjoyed Avery’s Overlord and I am always down for seeing Stallone in a new action movie so I am looking forward to how this develops.

Samaritan is scheduled to be released on June 4, 2021 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
