Gerard Butler plays a washed up Secret Service agent who has to save the day when North Korean terrorists take over the White House. Hey, it’s a lot more believable than North Korea taking over the whole United States in “Red Dawn”, right?
Anyways, check out a new batch of images from the upcoming “Die Hard in the White House” movie. Roland Emmerich’s gearing up his own “White House Down” for later this year. That movie stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx as the black President. This one has Aaron Eckhart as the white President, though if you’ve seen the trailers and TV spots for the movie, you might think it has a black President in Morgan Freeman, too. Kinda deceptive advertising there if you ask me.
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.
Also starring Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, and Rick Yune.
Antoine Fuqua directs “Olympus has Fallen”, which takes over this March 22, 2013.
