Antoine Fuqua’s “Olympus has Fallen” takes its battle for the White house to a theater near you in two weeks, but you can check out ten whopping clips from the movie now. I know, 10 clips sounds like a lot, right? But think about it, it’s actually only about, oh, 10 minutes or so of the entire movie. That’s not really a lot when you consider this is a 2-hour flick.
In terms of “Die Hard in the White House” movies, “Olympus has Fallen” takes the subject matter much more seriously than Roland Emmerich’s “White House Down”, which judging by the script that I read, is way more jokier and more in tune with its “Die Hard” roots. I guess we’ll find out if that translates to the big screen when the trailer hits.
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.
Starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, Rick Yune, Radha Mitchell, and taking back the White House this March 22, 2013.
