Back in 2010, Finnish director Jalmari Helander brought the world a creepy Christmas present in the form of feral Santa Claus tale Rare Exports. For his next trick, he’s looking to throw a nod and a wink towards big ‘80s muscle movies with an action-comedy called Big Game, which now has a trailer online. With Samuel L. Jackson, Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman, Ted Levine, Victor Garber and Rare Exports’ Onni Tommila among the cast, the film appears to be a blend of Escape From New York and The Most Dangerous Game.Jackson stars as the President of the United States, who is stranded in the Finnish mountains when terrorists blast Air Force One from the sky and he’s parachuted to relative safety in an escape capsule. Struggling to survive in the harsh terrain he meets 13-year-old Oskari (Tommila), who is out there as part of a coming-of-age ritual. »
Try to pick out the single most ridiculous thing about Big Game after watching its trailer. Is it that Samuel L. Jackson plays the President of the United States? Or that he’s thrown into some kind of crazy “Most Dangerous Game” style human-hunting contest for terrorists? Is it that he’s paired up with a kid (Onni Tommila)? Is it that this kid is Finnish and much of this action movie is in Finnish but that won’t stop American audiences who don’t normally watch foreign films to check out Samuel L. Jackson in a movie that’s basically a mix of Air Force One, Die Hard, White House Down/Olympus Has Fallen and Escape from New York, except where the main hero is a kid? (Also some might go see it thinking it’s about a big sports game.) My pick is Jim Broadbent seemingly phoning it in as a spy who himself is »

The last time we saw Finnish director Jalmari Helander, he brought us the killer Santa Claus movie Rare Exports. Now, he's back with the equally over the top Big Game, which sees Air Force One shot down over the Finnish countryside, forcing the U.S. President (Samuel L. Jackson) to team up with a local teenager to survive the wilderness and the terrorists hunting him down. There's something undeniably 80's about this premise, and the below trailer promises a movie just outrageous enough that it just might work. Having already debuted at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, Big Game takes a bow in Finland on March 25th, before coming to our shores on May 8th. No U.S. release date has been given as of yet. »

What if Escape From New York took place in a Finnish forest with a teen-aged Snake Plisskin out to rescue the President of the United States? In the film Big Game, which comes from Rare Exports director Jalmari Helander, Samuel L. Jackson is the Potus, shot out of the sky when Air Force One is […]

You have to watch this trailer for a hilarious-looking action-packed parody film called Big Game. It was directed by Finnish director Jalmari Helander (Rare Exports) and it stars Onni Tommila as a young hunter testing his manhood and Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States. The movie looks amazingly entertaining, and I have to see it! I think a lot of you are going to enjoy this trailer.

When we interviewed Rare Exports director, Jalmari Helander, he told us his next film would be "an action movie with a love story and a warm heart, something like Home Alone meets Rambo." Now, I don't know about a love story, or the Home Alone part, but the Rambo part seems to have carried through Big Game's development process.
Designed as a throwback to the PG-13 Ambling adventure films of the 80s, Big Game features an adolescent at the heart of a global incident. Fans of Helander's evil Santa movie, Rare Exports (a film I liked and respected, but was ultim [Continued ...] »

Cast one eye over Samuel L. Jackson’s long and celebrated résumé and you’ll soon find that, even though the actor has starred in some of the best films ever made — Pulp Fiction, in particular — there are some critical duds that somewhat balance the scale. Films such as Snakes on a Plane and Deep Blue Sea were widely panned, yet still managed to carve out an audience thanks to their bizarre plot and yet more bizarre dialogue. And going off of the first trailer for Big Game, the Finnish film could join that, er, echelon.
Playing the President of the United States, Big Game will see Jackson stranded in the woodlands of Finland after he is attacked on Air Force One. Cue questions of corruption and double-crossing. With only a young boy to call a friend — played here by Onni Tommila — the absurd scenario soon gets much, much worse »

Massive explosions, a terrorist hijacking and lots and lots of gunplay. Big Game screams Die Hard knockoff, and if it wasn.t for Samuel L. Jackson.s involvement, we probably would.ve instantly written it off as just another measly, unimportant action flick. But thanks to the first Big Game trailer, with its grandiose speeches on "9/11" and "big game hunting," we.re on board for its sheer ridiculousness. "Find the President. Kill the sons of bitches who are after him. Bring him home." Now that sounds like a direct quote from White House Down or Olympus Has Fallen, but the premise isn.t. As seen in the Big Game trailer, a young boy named Oskari is sent off to survive on his own in the wilderness to eventually emerge into manhood. During his time in solitude, he encounters the President of the United States (Jackson), whose plane was shot down »

"We think this is the most serious terrorist action since 9/11." Hollywood doesn't make many live-action family action adventure films anymore where the kid is the hero. But Finland isn't beyond throwing one out there with Big Game, a story that finds Samuel L. Jackson as the President of the United States of America who ends up lost in international woods after Air Force One is shot out of the sky. Though the president isn't on his own as a young boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila), armed with a bow and arrow, tries to help him survive in the wild as terrorists pursue them with all the flare and fun of a Matthew Vaughn flick. Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman and more also star in the film. Watch below! Here's the Finnish trailer (with subtitles) for Jalmari Helander's Big Game (via YouTube): Big Game is written and directed »

Here's the first trailer for Finnish director Jalmari Helander’s English-language debut - a thriller titled "Big Game," which stars Samuel L. Jackson as President of the USA, and Onni Tommila. The film follows a shy, nervous 13-year-old boy named Oskari (played by Tommila), who must prove his manhood by spending a night alone in the forest, when Air Force One is shot down by terrorists and Oskari discovers the President (Samuel L. Jackson) in an escape pod. With the terrorists closing in, Oskari and the President team up to survive the night. I'm actually looking forward to checking this out because director Helander's last feature, the »

The first trailer and poster have been released for "Rare Exports" filmmaker Jalmari Helander's new action comedy "Big Game". Something of a parody of Cannon Films-like high-concept blockbusters, Samuel L. Jackson plays the President Of The United States.
When Air Force One is shot down over the Finnish mountains, Jackson's President must rely on a 13-year-old boy to help him survive the brutal landscape and evade kidnappers in hot pursuit of the leader. Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman, Ted Levine and Victor Garber also star in the film which has yet to score a U.S. release date.

The first Big Game trailer has gone online. The Finnish film stars Onni Tommila as a young boy going through a right of passage by hunting in the wilderness. During his hunt, he finds the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) who has landed in the woods in his escape pod after being attacked on Air Force One. Together, the two must survive against the terrorists who hunting down the leader of the free world. I saw the film at Tiff last year, and I felt that the film was too ambivalent about its tone to be enjoyable, and this trailer surprisingly follows suit. The idea behind Big Game is to take its ridiculous premise, play it straight, and get adventure and humor as a result, but it never really comes together. Hit the jump to check out the Big Game trailer. The film also stars Ray Stevenson as well as Felicity Huffman, »
