Based on the original story by Finland screenwriter-director Jalmari Helander and Petri Jokiranta, the film was first shown at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and will hit Singapore’s screens before the UK and US.
The Finnish action adventure film is cited to be “a throwback to ‘80s and ‘90s adventure movie with a dash of comic book violence thrown in for good measure”. Jalmari collaborates with young actor Onni Tommila yet again, having worked together on the Rare Exports movie series from 2003-2010.
The boy plays the lead role of 13-year-old Oskari, alongside critically acclaimed American actor-producer Samuel L. Jackson, who has appeared in over seven thousand films and plays the major role of the President of the United States in this new film.
Tradition dictates that like his forefathers before him, timid 13-year-old Oskari’s time has come to spend one day and one night in the wilderness, alone. Armed with only a bow and arrow, he must return to his kinfolk with a “prize” as proof of his maturity.
Oskari had been planning to track down a deer, but instead discovers the most powerful man on the planet in an escape pod. Not just any escape pod – this pod belongs to Air Force One and the battered and bruised man lying before him is the President of the United States!
With the terrorists closing in to capture their own "Big Game" prize, the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters.
And so the fate of the most powerful man in the world lies in the hands of a 13-year-old boy. As anxious Pentagon officials observe the action via satellite feed, will the President and his new side-kick be able to prove themselves and survive the most extraordinary 24 hours of their lives?
Big Game opens in cinemas on May 7, ratings to be advised.
