Yet another well-known biblical figure is set to have his story told on the big screen, as Christian movie house Pure Flix prepares for the release of “Samson,” a feature film about the epic Old Testament hero known for his supernatural strength.
The movie, which will release nationwide on Feb. 16, 2018, will focus on the “powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel” and will bring the revered story to life via stunning cinematic imagery.
“His supernatural strength and impulsive decisions quickly pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire,” a description reads. “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.”

Samson is played by actor Taylor James (“Justice League”), with Billy Zane starring as King Balek and Caitlin Leahy starring as Delilah. Find out more about the film here.
