Big Game — Sneak Peek Clip


added: Thu, Sep 4th '14

Coming off his 2010 Finnish hit horror "Rare Exports," about a group of hunters hunting down a demonized Santa, director Jalmari Helander is about to debut his follow-up "Big Game" at TIFF's Midnight Madness screening tomorrow night. And here's a sneak peek clip from the film that stars Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States, who barely survives the destruction of Air Force One by being ejected in an escape pod that lands in the middle of a forest, only to be found by a 13-year old boy who was on a mission to prove to his father that he is now a man. As the President is hunted down by terrorists, its up to the young tyke, Oskari (Onni Tommila), to save "the commander of the most biggest-baddest ass-kickin' armed forces on the planet" with only a bow and arrow and a little bit of luck.

"Big Game" also co-stars Ray Stevenson, Mehmet Kurtulus, Victor Garber, Ted Levine, Felicity Huffman, and Jim Broadbent.

Oskari, a timid 13-year-old, anxiously awaits his fate. Tradition dictates that like his forefathers before him, the boy's time has come to spend one day and one night alone in the wilderness. Armed with a bow and arrow, he must return with a prize to prove himself to be a man. Terrified and alone, he wanders through a vast and unforgiving forest when suddenly he hears a deafening rumbling sound. Racing to investigate, Oskari discovers an escape pod. Not just any escape pod - this pod belongs to Air Force One and the battered and bruised man lying before him is the President of the United States! In the skies above, terrorists are hurtling their way to the crash site hell-bent on kidnapping the President. Now 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.
