Samuel L. Jackson has long been a uniquely prolific actor, from a part in a Star Wars reboot to his hilarious self-parody in the 2006 film Snakes on a Plane. Now, Jackson has added another oddball production credit to his list, playing the part of the president of the United States who gets stranded following an airplane crash and is then hunted as human prey in a new Finnish movie called Big Game.
The newly-released trailer features an epic plane crash and heroic Finnish boy who comes to Jackson’s rescue equipped with a bow-and-arrow. Once he’s on the ground, a villain with an accent delivers the type of line you might expect from a big-budget ’90s action movie: “Big game hunting never got any bigger.”
While the new trailer seems like pure action, there’s a tongue-in-cheek bend to how over-the-top the film promises to be. Also worth noting, the producers behind the flick put out a movie called Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale a few years ago in which a Finnish farmer tries to kill a murderous Santa Clause.
Check out the trailer below but don’t take this new Big Game blockbuster too seriously as it seems like an early bet for the best worst movie of the year.
