We are pleased to debut an exclusive poster for the crime thriller The Samaritan starring Samuel L. Jackson. In the movie, Jackson plays a paroled con man who wants to build a new life, but gets sucked back into the con game by his ex-partner’s scheming son. I like the simple color scheme of the poster, and who isn’t entranced by Jackson pointing guns at things?
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film also stars Ruth Negga, Luke Kirby, and Tom Wilkinson. The Samaritan will be available on VOD and Digital outlets (iTunes, SundanceNOW, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune) on April 6th, and hit theaters on May 16th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Samaritan:
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 in. 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.
