Is that you, Sam? Avatar star Worthington looks unrecognisable in his new Stan Original film Transfusion with a scruffy beard and long hair

Sam Worthington looks unrecognisable in a trailer for his new upcoming Stan Original film, Transfusion.

However, he still has his distinctive gravelly voice for the role.

The trailer opens with several people trying to pressure Sam’s retired character to accept one last job.

Sam proves he won’t be pressured when he forcefully pushes a man to the ground and tells him to leave.

‘It stops now, don’t test me,’ a gruff Sam says.

Life takes another cruel twist when he is then thrust into the criminal underworld to keep his only son from being taken from him.

Bloom actress Phoebe Tonkin will portray Logan’s wife Justine in the film, while Matt Nable will play Johnny.
