Looks like we can add another Bible movie to the pre-Easter pile-up.

In addition to the Weinstein Company’s Mary Magdalene and Sony’s Paul, Apostle of Christ — both of which are currently scheduled for the last week of March (though the former film’s release date is now in doubt, thanks to all the turmoil besetting its distributor) — we now have Pure Flix’s Samson coming to theatres on February 16.

Pure Flix has released a teaser for the film, which you can watch right here:

The teaser gives us our first look at Rutger Hauer as Samson’s father Manoah …

You can see about 20 other images from the film — including a few of The Bionic Woman’s Lindsay Wagner as Samson’s mother Zealphonis — at the film’s IMDb page.

Oh, and in case anyone’s wondering, the other films currently scheduled to come out on February 16 are Marvel’s Black Panther and Aardman Animation’s Early Man.
