Following the first trailer released in January and the international trailer that debuted last month, a new domestic trailer has arrived for Big Game, starring Samuel L. Jackson and young Finnish actor Onni Tommila. Director Jalmari Helander returns with this long-awaited follow-up to his cult Christmas classic Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. It's certainly possible that this action-thriller that could develop a much bigger following than his debut when it hits theaters this summer, but we'll have to wait and see.
Big Game follows the plight of Oskari (Onni Tommila), a shy, nervous 13-year-old boy. Like his forefathers, his time has come to take a test of manhood by spending one day and one night alone in the wilderness of a vast local forest. Armed only with a bow and arrow, his task is to return with a prize to prove himself. But this is no ordinary night. Air Force One is shot down by terrorists and Oskari discovers the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) in an escape pod. Now the fate of the most powerful man in the world lies in his hands. With the terrorists closing in, Oskari and the President must team up to survive the most extraordinary 24 hours of their lives.
The diverse international supporting cast includes Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Mehmet Kurtulus, Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber and Ted Levine in what could be one of the big sleeper hits this summer. Big Game will be released in select theaters along with Digital HD and VOD formats on June 26. Check out the latest footage below, if you ever wanted to know what Samuel L. Jackson looks like while snacking on a sausage in the wilderness.
