Samson Trailer

"Remember the prophecy…" PureFlix has unveiled a trailer for the new religious propaganda movie called Samson, an epic cinematic version of the Samson and Delilah story from the bible. Normally we wouldn't post trailers for these kinds of religious films, but I'm making an exception for this because it has such a wildly fun cast - Billy Zane as King Balek, Jackson Rathbone as Rallah, plus Rutger Hauer & Lindsay Wagner as Samson's father & mother, Manoah and Zealphonis. The movie stars newcomer Taylor James as the Hebrew hero, with Caitlin Leahy as Delilah. This movie looks crazy epic with huge VFX and big sets, even though it was independently financed. The story follows a young Hebrew with supernatural strength who defends his people, sacrificing everything to avenge his love, his people, and his God. Yeah, sounds fun.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Bruce Macdonald & Gabriel Sabloff's Samson, direct from YouTube:

Samson Movie Poster

A Hebrew with an unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life in order to lead his people out of enslavement. After his youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage, his acts of revenge thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine army. As his brother mounts a tribal rebellion, only Samson's relationship with a Philistine seductress and his final surrender - both to the Philistines and to God - turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory. Samson is directed by Bruce Macdonald (The Last Wave), and co-directed by Gabriel Sabloff (Revelation Road). The screenplay is co-written by Jason Baumgardner, Galen Gilbert, Timothy Ratajczak, Zach Smith. PureFlix will release Macdonald & Sabloff's Samson in theaters everywhere starting on February 16th, 2018 this winter. Anyone interested?

He looks like another Taylor, the one from Twilight. Also, that's some awful looking movie.

Atrocious in every respect. An offense to the old version ....

Well, they are horrible because they can't be religious and because they can't be anything watchable in a way that depicts something else but religion. It's like a dead end where aesthetics is too secular too them or to those who are trying to squeeze money out of it. And also, religious today is also mostly just allegory of the secular, nothing more. But what I mostly don't understand, why address religious issues in a forgettable and old-fashioned way? Even if I would be a religious person, which I am not, I couldn't accept this since it's done very cheap and is only aimed to grab some money. To imitate some true religious rage about it: this is a real blasphemy in so many respects, not just as a story and as an aesthetics ... Cheers Bo ...

Just to add shortly, nothing new about those old fashioned ones for the last thousand years. Cheers Bo ...

That crown fits Billy Zane as well as he fits this role... looks horrible. Will it rival 1983's 'Hercules' with Lou Ferrigno for one of the all time worst... time will tell.

Haha! I get it, but I ain't seeing it.

Looks better than most of the tired nonsense being released in theaters today. Spider-Man, Batman, Wonderwoman (lol), Star Wars, Star Trek, etc...

B grade movie.

Just because something comes from a religious point of view doesn’t make it propaganda, you ignorant twit.
