Whoa. Samuel L. Jackson is in big trouble in Big Game, playing a president who is being hunted by would-be assassins. As you can see in this exclusive trailer, the trouble starts when Air Force One gets shot down in a remote forest in Finland.
One would think with a title like Big Game the flick is about football. But, really, it’s a sort of mash-up of 1997’s Air Force One, starring Harrison Ford as commander in chief, and the 2011 Saoirse Ronan action thriller Hanna.
An outdoorsy teenager, played by Onni Tommila, helps rescue the president and serves as a sidekick as the two team up to fight the bad guys in spectacular fashion.
Big Game, also with Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent, Ted Levine, Felicity Huffman, and Victor Garber, premieres exclusively on DIRECTV May 21 and lands in select theaters, Digital HD, and on demand June 26.
