The trailer for Finnish film Big Game has a child rescuing President Samuel L. Jackson

Big Game is a Finnish film by the makers of Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale in which a child, out on a hunting quest as part of some rite of passage, stumbles upon the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) after Air Force One is downed. The child (Onni Tommila) then has to protect the muthafuckin’ leader of the free muthafuckin’ world as he is hunted down by terrorists. Apparently after the failures of White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen, America is now outsourcing its protection of the president from vaguely European extremists—to children. Anyway, Big Game is basically Air Force One + Home Alone + Most Dangerous Game, with a soupçon of that goofy energy the filmmakers lent to their previous film about a demonic Santa Claus and his evil, elderly henchmen. Americans will have to wait and see how that all turns out, as there’s been no date set for a U.S. release.
