Samuel L. Jackson Stars As President In “Big Game”
Samuel L. Jackson is starring as the President Of The United States in an upcoming film called Big Game. The photo above is the first released of Jackson in the film. The plot sounds like the makings of a potentially great or potentially disastrous film. It begins with the cliche terrorist attack against The President. The twist comes when The President finds himself stranded in the freezing cold wilderness with a child.
Here is the official synopsis of the film found on JoBlo:
When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving The President of the United States stranded in the wilderness, there is only person around who can save him – a 13-year old boy called Oskari. In the forest on a hunting mission to prove his maturity to his kinsfolk, Oskari had been planning to track down a deer, but instead discovers the most powerful man on the planet in an escape pod. With the terrorists closing in to capture their own “Big Game” prize, the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters. As anxious Pentagon officials observe the action via satellite feed, it is up to the President and his new side-kick to prove themselves and survive the most extraordinary 24 hours of their lives.
Now that you know what the film is all about, its time to tackle another important question. Why does Hollywood so frequently cast Black males in the role of president? I am certainly not complaining, but it does seem to be a theme. Please post your answer to this question below!
