"We think this is the most serious terrorist action since 9/11." Hollywood doesn't make many live-action family action adventure films anymore where the kid is the hero. But Finland isn't beyond throwing one out there with Big Game, a story that finds Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States of America who ends up lost in international woods after Air Force One is shot out of the sky. Though the president isn't on his own as a young boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila), armed with a bow and arrow, tries to help him survive in the wild as terrorists pursue them with all the flare and fun of a Matthew Vaughn flick. Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman and more also star in the film. Watch below!
Here's the Finnish trailer (with subtitles) for Jalmari Helander's Big Game (via YouTube):
Big Game is written and directed by Jalmari Helander (Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale). When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving The President of the United States stranded in the wilderness, there is only person who can save him – a 13-year old boy called Oskari, who had been planning to track down a deer, but instead discovers the most powerful man on the planet in an escape pod. With the terrorists closing in, the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters as Pentagon officials observe the action via satellite feed. The film debuts Finland on March 25th and the UK on May 8th, but has no US release date.
