Oh Samuel L. Jackson, you big bald ball of awesome. He really has appeared in some of the oddest movies, from Snakes on a Plane to Black Snake Moan, he has covered most of the genres. Recently his portrayal of comic book spy Nick Fury (whose likeness was actually based on Jackson – ow, my brain) has been one that I really like. So after watching this trailer for what looks like a very odd movie indeed, I love the guy even more.

This time Jackson plays the President of America on the run after his Air Force One plane is shot down over Finland. ‘Who is looking out for him’ you ask? Gerard Butler? Hugh Jackman? Nope, it’s 15 year old Onni Tommila. Wait, what?!

The first time I saw Tommila was in Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale, a very odd movie directed by Jalmari Helander who also directs thisWell Tommila kicked butt in that movie and it looks like he’s back to do the same, only this time saving the President from some rather bad men in black with his bow and arrows. Tommila plays a young hunter out participating in his right of passage when Jackson crashes nearby. The trailer also includes a plane getting shot down, Jackson escaping in an escape pod, Jackson escaping in a freezer, and Jackson escaping in an ejector seat… So all types of silly. Looks like fun!

The big bad dude is played by the awesome Ray Stevenson (Thor) and also stars Victor Garber (Argo), Ted Levin (Shutter Island) and Jaymes Butler (Resident Evil). Big Game is available on VOD on 26 June.
