‘Big Game’ Trailer: Samuel L. Jackson Is the Most Dangerous Game
Now hear this one out: Samuel L. Jackson plays the President of the United States, whose plan crash-lands in Finland, where he’s subsequently hunted by a group of bad guys and teams up with a 13-year-old kid with a bow and arrow to survive. That sounds incredibly ridiculous, but Jackson is great at incredibly ridiculous. Today brings the newest trailer for Big Game, which goes a bit bigger than the first one.
Yahoo! debuted the latest thriller for the upcoming action film, directed by Jalmari Helander, who previously helmed the Christmas horror flick Rare Exports. If you’re familiar at all with that bonkers little movie, then you know the sort of tone and sensibilities to expect from Big Game.
Plus, you know, Samuel L. Jackson as the President—that’s a world we’d like to live in. They say man is the most dangerous game, but those dudes clearly never went up against Jackson. Here’s the official synopsis:
In the rugged countryside of Finland, a young thirteen-year-old (Onni Tommila) embarks on a traditional quest to prove himself by spending 24 hours alone in the wild, armed with only a bow and arrow. After witnessing a spectacular crash, he discovers the escape pod from Air Force One, containing the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson). When they realize a group of kidnappers is hot on their trail with the intention of taking the president, this unlikely duo must escape their hunters as they search for the American Special Forces team sent out to find them.
