Hold onto your butts; Samuel L. Jackson is back and he’s rolling down a hill in a freezer.  Really.  Jackson leads the Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness selection, Big Game, as the President of the United States.  When a 13-year-old boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila) accepts the traditional challenge to head out into the wilderness for one day and one night to prove that he’s a man, he winds up stumbling across an escape pod – the Air Force One escape pod.  Now it’s up to Oskari to protect the President from the terrorists trying to kidnap him.

Check out what happens when Oskari insists, “Instead of looking tough, we have to be tough,” in the very first Big Game clip after the jump.  The film also stars Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent and Felicity Huffman.

Here’s the official synopsis for Big Game:

Oskari, a timid 13-year-old, anxiously awaits his fate. Tradition dictates that like his forefathers before him, the boy’s time has come to spend one day and one night alone in the wilderness. Armed with a bow and arrow, he must return with a prize to prove himself to be a man. Terrified and alone, he wanders through a vast and unforgiving forest when suddenly he hears a deafening rumbling sound. Racing to investigate, Oskari discovers 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! In the skies above, terrorists are hurtling their way to the crash site hell-bent on kidnapping the President. Now the fate of the most powerful man in the world lies in the hands of a 13-year-old boy. Plunged into a deadly game of cat and mouse with only hours to spare, Oskari and the President must team up to survive the most extraordinary night of their lives.
