Watch: Samuel L. Jackson Goes Grifting in 'The Samaritan' Trailer
"Nothing changes unless you make it change." IFC Films has debuted the official trailer today via Yahoo for The Samaritan, a new dramatic thriller starring Samuel L. Jackson as a former grifter fresh out of prison, looking to take his life on a new path. But he meets another young woman and things get a bit out of hand when he gets in with the wrong guy. The cast includes Luke Kirby, Ruth Negga, Tom Wilkinson, Aaron Poole and Martha Burns. This trailer reveals a big plot twist, unnecessarily I'd say, and makes it almost look like The Game meets Death Sentence. They show too much, but I'll be damned if I'm not intrigued anyway.
Watch the first official trailer for David Weaver's The Samaritan, in high def via Yahoo:
After twenty years in prison, Foley is finished with the grifter's life. When he meets an elusive woman named Iris, the possibility of a new start looks real. But his past is proving to be a stubborn companion.
