The President of the United States teams up with an unlikely young ally in a fight for survival in the first trailer for Big Game, starring Samuel L. Jackson and newcomer Onni Tommila. The movie serves as Finnish director Jalmari Helander's follow-up to his holiday cult classic Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale. While a domestic release date has not been set at this time, this action-thriller will be released in Finland March 25, with a U.K. release to follow on May 8.
Big Game tells the story 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.
Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber, Ted Levine and Mehmet Kurtulus round out the supporting cast of Big Game.
