Now that I’ve started the third season of “House Of Cards,” I’ve got the show on the brain, so apologies for the parallels I’m about to draw. But if Frank Underwood has to cajole, provoke, manipulate, and blackmail dudes in Washington to survive to the next term, he’s got nothing on Samuel L. Jackson‘s POTUS in “Big Game.” Now you can see just how hairy things get for the leader of the free world in the trailer for the action satire.
Nick Fury himself plays the far less heroic, nameless President, who has to go on the run from a band of terrorists and a rogue Secret Service agent when Air Force One is shot out of the sky. Ill-equipped for the Finnish mountainside in which he lands, The President finds an unlikely ally in a 13-year-old boy in the midst of a rite of passage. And while this looks like big, dumb, fun, just adding up the first two qualities doesn’t automatically equal the third, and this is mostly a misguided, unfunny, tone-deaf picture (read our review).
“Big Game” hits VOD and limited release on June 26th. Watch below.
