The trailer for The Samaritan has Samuel L. Jackson in full badass mode

Mar. 30, 2012by: Alex Maidy

If you were to make a list of Top Badasses in Cinema, Samuel L. Jackson would be Top 10, easily. The man can do anything from comedy to action, hero to villain, you name it. Even the worst movies benefit from his presence.

The new IFC Films release THE SAMARITAN seems to follow in the same style we have grown to see Mr. Jackson excel in. You have him doing all of his trademark moves in the trailer, except the full volume yell that has become his calling card.

Here's the plot: After twenty‐five years in prison, Foley (Samuel L. Jackson) is finished with the grifter’s life. When he meets an elusive young woman named Iris (Ruth Negga), the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion: Ethan (Luke Kirby), the son of his former partner, has an ingenious plan and he wants Foley involved. The harder Foley tries to escape his past, the tighter he is ensnared in Ethan’s web of secrets, until it becomes all too clear to Foley that some wrongs can never be made right.

Sounds good enough to warrant my time. THE SAMARITAN opens May 16th.

"I've learned some pretty nasty things in prison."

I hope he doesn't mean what I think he means.

screw this

well I guess I don't need to see this movie now...
I know it's not your fault for posting this trailer, but they basically show you EVERYTHING.

Just so more people don't have to have what looked like a potentially cool flick ruined for them can you edit in a warning in the article stating that the trailer ruins everything!?

Wow

WAAAAAY too much given away in the trailer. I'm actually kind of disappointed because it's looks like a decent enough suspense thriller.

Trailer douchebags

That's great, except I just saw the whole damn thing. Seriously?? You want people to see movies but you give them plot details and twists in the trailer????? No thanks.

Plus one for Toronto though.

ugh they spoiled so much in this trailer

Seriously, that scene with the call girl (i think she is) would have been a perfect "oh shit" moment.
