Just days after the inauguration of President Obama, the first trailer for Capitol Hill thriller Olympus Has Fallen has arrived.
Gerard Butler stars in this action-packed flick as an ex-Secret Service agent, Mike Banning, who is trapped in the White House after a terrorist organisation violently kidnaps the President (Aaron Eckhart) and holds him hostage there.
Naturally, Banning is the only man capable of retrieving the President unharmed and ending the terrorist threat. Problem is, the terrorists threaten to kill the President if anyone attempts to approach the White House.
But this doesn’t faze Mike Banning, who is eager to make up for the catastrophic mistake of letting the President’s wife die on his watch.
And so, working with acting president Speaker Trumbull (played by the marvelous Morgan Freeman), Banning begins the fight back against the ruthless terrorist cell…
Directed by Training Day’s Antoine Fuqua, Olympus Has Fallen will be released in UK cinemas on Friday 19 April.
