Mike Pereira raved about Big Game (review) when he caught the World Premiere at this past September’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Said to be like a PG-13 Ambling adventure film, “The fate of the most powerful man in the world lies in the hands of a 13-year old boy. Plunged into a deadly game of cat and mouse with only hours to spare, Oskari and the President must team up to survive the most extraordinary night of their lives.”
Now, a new trailer has been released that’s seriously one of the best in recent memory. In it, Jackson plays the President of the United States, who survives a plane crash. Obviously, this was an assignation attempt, and the killers come to finish the job. Jackson, as the President, must learn to become an American badass with the help of a young boy. It looks fantastic.
It will finally hit U.S. audiences with its June 26th release in select theaters, Digital HD, and on demand,
Directed by Jalmari Helander, the film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent, Ted Levine, Felicity Huffman, and Victor Garber
