Sylvester Stallone is showing off his superpowers this week on Prime Video.
On Friday, Aug. 26, the streaming service will add Samaritan to its available content. There is much anticipation for Stallone’s superhero movie as the 76-year-old actor is still one of the most beloved Hollywood stars. The cast also features Javon “Wanna” Walton, Pilou Asbæk, Dascha Polanco, and Moises Arias. Samaritan is produced by Stallone and Braden Aftergood, with Bragi F. Schut, David Kern, Adam Rosenberg, and Guy Riedel serving as executive producers.
“In the film, thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith is actually a legend hiding in plain sight,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
