Explosive New Trailer for BIG GAME, Starring Samuel L. Jackson
I cannot wait to see Big Game, the new movie from Finnish director Jalmari Helander (Rare Exports). It's a high concept movie with an amazing hook: Samuel L. Jackson plays the President of the United States, and he's being hunted in the wilderness after Air Force One is shot down. But he's discovered by a 13-year-old boy (Onni Tommila) who is participating in a tradition in which he spends one day and night alone in the woods with a bow and arrow, and the two form an unlikely alliance as they fight to stay alive against the terrorists who are after the President. It's a totally crazy idea, but it looks like the filmmakers struck the perfect tone. Empire has a new poster for the film (above) and a brand new trailer that we've embedded below.
Big Game opens in Finland on March 25th, but there's no official word on an American release yet. Here's hoping we don't have too much longer to wait, because this movie looks like an absolute blast.
