‘Big Game’ Trailer with Samuel L. Jackson as President

Posted in The Screening Room by - January 06, 2015

So the makers of Rare Exports have gone and done it again; they’ve taken a genre that has been played out and made it hopefully fresh again. 

Trapped in the wilderness after Air Force One is forced down by a terrorist attack, the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) must rely on the survival skills of a 13-year-old woodsman, in this thriller co-starring Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent and Felicity Huffman. In the rugged Finnish countryside, timid thirteen-year-old Oskari (Onni Tommila) embarks on a traditional quest to prove himself by spending twenty-four hours alone in the wild, armed with only a bow and arrow. As Oskari wanders the vast forest, the night is ripped apart by a deafening crash. Following a trail of broken trees and burning debris, Oskari discovers the escape pod from Air Force One, containing the battered and bruised President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson). With a team of terrorists hot on the president’s trail, the life of the most powerful man in the world lies in the hands of a teenage woodsman — and this unlikely duo is soon plunged into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, with the clock ticking down towards disaster.

The movie not only sounds awesome, but looks awesome. I am already 100% sold on this film and it bums me out that there isn’t a US release date yet for the film, but hopefully there will be soon. Samuel L. Jackson is a big enough draw stateside that they should have no problem getting this movie sold.
