Here’s the trailer for Samuel L. Jackson’s new movie Big Game, dirrcted by Jalmari Helander who previously brought us the excellent Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale.
The film’s plot rattles along like so:
Under the threat of a terrorist attack the President of the United States crash-lands into a Finnish forest where he meets a young boy called Oskari who is out to prove himself as a hunter. Together they must try to evade an assassination attempt on the president.
Big Game goes on general release on September 5th.
Here’s the second official trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service, directed by Matthew Vaughn based on the comic book The Secret Service created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar.
The film tars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, and Michael Caine and tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
The film is set for February 12th release date across the UK.

Don’t get us wrong we love the man and are huge fans of his work but after watching this public service announcement to curb gun violence, which is currently being broadcast on American TV, we were left scratching our heads. Isn’t Samuel L Jackson the same actor who has made a fortune playing foul mouthed, violent, short tempered, gun carrying, murderous thugs?
Isn’t this the same man who once famously said:
AK-47. The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherfucker in the room, accept no substitutes.
…and then followed that up with:
Now that there is the Tec-9, a crappy spray gun from South Miami. This gun is advertised as the most popular gun in American crime. Do you believe that shit? It actually says that in the little book that comes with it: the most popular gun in American crime. Like they’re actually proud of that shit.
and continued with:
If she start giving me some bullshit about it ain’t there, and we got to go someplace else and get it, I’m gonna shoot you in the head then and there. Then I’m gonna shoot that bitch in the kneecaps, find out where my goddamn money is. She gonna tell me too. Hey, look at me when I’m talking to you, motherfucker. You listen: we go in there, and that nigga Winston or anybody else is in there, you the first motherfucker to get shot. You understand?
We guess part of ‘breaking the cycle‘ doesn’t include the glorification of gun violence in movies. We’re now looking forward to Charlie Sheen’s announcement to stop people snorting coke or Gary Glitter’s advert on making sure no-one looks at kiddie porn.
