Man, those US presidents. It seems you can’t go one day without hearing about how the POTUS is either under siege in the White House (Twice in one year) or telling those damn terrorists to get out of the first class section of Air Force One. But what happens when the most powerful American alive crash lands in the forests of Finland? You get Escape From New York meets ET meets Cliffhanger, that’s what.
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, Oskari and the president must team up to survive the most extraordinary night of their lives.
Look, I’ll watch any movie that stars Samuel L Jackson as the president. That’s just magnificent casting to me. Big Game also stars Onni Tommila as Jackson’s plucky hunting sidekick who happens to be undergoing his manhood rite of passage during the entire flick. It’s got no US release date yet, but that should change soon. Jalmari Helander directs.
