Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus Has Fallen

If you are a little distressed at the lack of Gerard Butler on the big screen over the last twelve months then fear not.

Yes the Scottish actor is set to return early next month with his new film Olympus Has Fallen.

Once again he shows off his action side as he teams up with director Antoine Fuqua and has to save the President.

We have the brand new and shortened version of the exciting trailer:

Butler is not the only exciting face on the cast list of this movie as Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart and Angela Bassett are all also set to star.

Faqua has been behind movies such as Training Day, Tears of the Sun and King Arthur in recent years.

Olympus Has Fallen marks his return to the director's chair for the first time since he helmed Brooklyn's Finest and it is great to see him back.

When terrorists take over the White House, a disgraced Secret Service agent attempts to rescue the president of the United States.

A small group of heavily armed, meticulously trained extremists launches a daring daylight ambush on the White House, overrunning the building and taking President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his staff hostage inside an impenetrable underground presidential bunker.

As a pitched battle rages on the White House lawn, former presidential security officer Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) joins the fray, only to find himself the last Secret Service member alive in the besieged building.

Banning uses his extensive training and detailed knowledge of the presidential residence to become the eyes and ears of Acting President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) and his advisors.

As the invaders begin executing hostages and threaten to kill more unless their outrageous demands are met, Banning tries frantically to locate the president’s young son, hidden somewhere in the building, and rescue the president before the terrorists can unleash their ultimate, terrifying plan.

As the body count mounts and the clock ticks down, it becomes clear that Banning is America’s only hope of avoiding utter annihilation.

Olympus Has Fallen promises to be a fast paced and exciting movie to liven up the big screen next month.
