I can only hope that Antoine Fuqua and his guys have cleaned up the rather shoddy looking CGI that we saw in the first trailer for the director’s “Olympus Has Fallen”, one of two “Die Hard in a White House” movie currently scheduled to invade theaters in 2013. The other, of course, being Roland Emmerich’s Channing Tatum-fronted “White House Down”.
“Olympus Has Fallen’s” two main men are Aaron Eckhart as the President and Gerard Butler as the John McClane stand-in. Check out their character posters from the film below.
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, and repelling invaders this March 22, 2013.
