The White House isn’t going to do well this year, as it’s being taken over by terrorists in both Roland Emmerich’s White House Down and Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen. It’s the latter which arrives first on March 22nd in the US and April 19th in the UK, and now the trailer for the movie has arrived.
It all looks very Die Hard at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with Gerard Butler as an ex-special forces officer taken off the President’s security detail after an accident. However when international terrorists attack the White House and take the President (Aaron Eckhart) hostage. It also stars Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett and Ashley Judd.
While the trailer does suggest a movie that’ll be completely over the top, it could also be quite fun. We’ll have to wait and see.
