Earlier today, the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival unveiled lineups for a few of its other programs, including the Midnight Madness category, which celebrates the “wild, wacky, and weird” in film.  This year’s lineup is rather eclectic, and we’ve got debut images from some of the movies to give audiences a taste of what to expect.  They include Big Game, in which a 13-year-old boy must save the president of the United States (played by Samuel L. Jackson), Cub, about a Cub Scout pack that encounters a feral boy in the wild, Electric Boogaloo, which recounts the story of Cannon Films, director Sino Sino’s Tokyo Tribe, and more.

Check out images from the Midnight Madness films after the jump.  The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4th – 14th.

We got a look at Samuel L. Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury in the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier earlier today, but now a first-look image from another Jackson films casts the actor in a different light.  Jackson plays the President of the United States in Big Game, which revolves around a 13-year-old boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila) who stumbles upon a crashed Air Force One in the wilderness and subsequently aims to get the President to safety.  Jalmari Helander directs the action adventure pic, and along with the first image, it has been announced that Felicity Huffman, Victor Garber, and Ted Levine have been added to a cast that also includes Jim Broadbent and Ray Stevenson.
