Takes (place) on a plane

We wish he was the President in real life.

Joining the club of fantastically cool fictional Presidents of the United States of America is the baddest motherfecker of them all, Samuel L. Jackson.

He’s joining the likes of The West Wing’s Martin Sheen, Mars Attacks’ Jack Nicholson and the terrorist-twatting leader of the free world to top them all, Harrison Ford in Air Force One.

Plot’s it all about though JOE? Here’s the official cinematic 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 only a bow and arrow, he must return with a prize to prove himself a man.

Terrified and alone, he wanders through a vast and unforgiving forest when suddenly he hears a deafening rumble. 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

Sign us up, because this looks like Air Force Fun…
