'Big Game' Trailer: The Hunt for Samuel L. Jackson Begins
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.

The ‘Big Game’ trailer sells a concept that rides a fine line between totally preposterous and incredible. What if Air Force One was shot down and the President’s escape pod landed in the isolated woods of Finland? What is the President, now pursued by terrorists, only had one ally? What if that one ally was a pre-teen boy armed with a bow? What if the President was played by Samuel L. Jackson? Yeah, ‘Big Game’ is a real movie and we still can’t decide if it’s too ludicrous or just ludicrous enough.
