Independent faith-and-family studio Pure Flix recently released the official trailer for the highly anticipated biblical epic Samson, which it describes as “the thrilling retelling of a champion’s calling, betrayal and redemption.”
“If you’ve ever faced adversity and wondered if God was big enough to see you through it, this is your film,” said Pure Flix CEO Michael Scott in a press release.
Premiering nationwide February 16, Samson is based on the powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel. In the movie, Samson’s supernatural strength and impulsive decisions quickly pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire. After being betrayed by a wicked prince and a beautiful temptress, Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. Samson calls upon his God once more for supernatural strength and turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.
Besides the nationwide movie release, DREAM Label Group and Pure Flix Entertainment will release “Samson: Songs From and Inspired By the Motion Picture.” Available February 2, with pre-orders starting January 19, these 10 emotionally powerful songs from a talented group of worship leaders and churches all spring from the biblical story of Samson.
Samson was shot on location in South Africa, directed by Bruce Macdonald, and written by Zachary Warren Smith, Jason Baumgardner, Galen Gilbert and Timothy Ratajczak.
The action-packed film stars Billy Zane, Golden Globe® winner Rutger Hauer, Jackson Rathbone, Lindsay Wagner, Caitlin Leahy, and Taylor James in the title role of Samson.
