Moviemakers of the world, what has taken you so long?
Above you can see our first image of Samuel L. Jackson in Big Game, the film where he’s finally taking on the guise President of the United States.
As I’ve noted before, the duelling metaphors in the title are hard to miss when you know what this film is about: a thirteen year old kid undergoing a rites of passage survival test and who ends up protecting POTUS from terrorists in an inhospitable landscape.
Keep tapping X to perform a combo with the knife, hold down Y to aim your bow and arrow.
While the picture above was press released and has therefore cropped up all over the place in the last few hours, there are plenty of other images from the film on its Facebook page, and those are yet to be so widely disseminated. So here we go, I’ll do my part.
Big Game is being directed by Rare Exports‘ Jalmari Helander. Joining Jackson and the young Onni Tommila will be Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber, Ted Levine and the previously announced Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson and Mehmet Kurtulus.
