Big Game UK trailer

Does Samuel L. Jackson ever not have people trying to kill him? In Big Game, he plays the President of the United States, whose plane goes down over Finnish countryside. Things take a turn from bad to worse when he realizes he’s being chased by a group of baddies who’ll stop at nothing to capture him. And here you thought Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a dangerous job.

This POTUS does have one spot of good luck, though, which is that he’s happened to crash-land in front of a 13-year-old hunter played by Onni Tommila. This kid knows his way around the forest, and apparently develops a touching loyalty toward this frazzled world leader. Watch the Big Game trailer after the jump.
