Gramercy Pictures is releasing the Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen, in 2016 and while we’re still months away from checking out the film in theaters, the first official trailer provides a pretty extensive look at what we can expect. The action drama once again stars Gerard Butler as a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the President (Aaron Eckhart). The cast also includes Morgan Freeman, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Sean O’Bryan, Charlotte Riley and Waleed Zuaiter. Babak Najafi directed from a script by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt and Christian Gudegast and Chad St. John.
London Has Fallen opens on March 4, 2016.
The London Has Fallen Plot:
The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen, a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.
