Writer-director R.L. Scott’s gritty new action thriller Lazarus arrives on Tubi next Friday. The plot centres on a superpowered vigilante “raised from the darkness,” who fights to save his city.
Lazarus can’t compete with the spectacle of the DCEU – few films can – but if you’re down for an action flick full of brooding heroes, scheming villains, and loads of ass-kicking, this movie seems like lots of fun. Check out the trailer below.
Lazarus stars Sean Riggs (S.W.A.T., You) as the titular hero, Ray Lazarus. The movie also features Costas Mandylor (Saw IV), Aeriel Miranda (Straight Outta Compton), Shane Brolly (Underworld), and R&B superstar Mya (Chicago).
Lazarus centers around a man (Sean Riggs) who is killed, but his death is a brief affair. Upon regaining consciousness, he discovers he has been gifted with extraordinary powers that allow him to super-heroically fight the organization responsible for plunging his city into darkness. Lazarus is written and directed by R.L. Scott. The film was produced by R.L. Scott, and Justin “Jtrx” Echols; and executive produced by Sean Riggs, Eddie Riggs, and Edward Davie.
Lazarus will debut exclusively on Tubi on Friday, February 26th.
