OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Trailer and Poster; Starring Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart
The first trailer and poster for Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart, has appeared online. In this new action thriller from the director of Training Day, comes a new attack on our nations capital.
Butler plays an ex-secret service agent who must hide and silently take down the terrorists in the Oval Office in order to save the life of the President (Eckhart). While it seems like Olympus Has Fallen has a lot in common with Die Hard (One man in the position to stop the terrorists), it may just be the movie Gerard Butler needs to get on solid footing after a slew of poorly received films.
Starring Aaron Eckhart, Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, Dylan McDermott and Angela Bassett, Olympus Has Fallen opens on March 22nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Olympus Has Fallen:
When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.
