Gerard Butler Will Save The Presidency in First Olympus Has Fallen Trailer

I’m actually kind of surprise that Antoine Fuqua’s “Olympus Has Fallen”, one of two major studio “Die Hard in the White House” movies scheduled for this year, is the first one to release a trailer. We’ve seen absolutely nothing from the film since it went into production last year, with Roland Emmerich’s competing film “White House Down” getting all the press attention. Of course, that movie stars current Hot Guy Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx as the black President, and this one stars Gerard Butler, so, you know…

Anyways, here’s the first trailer for “Olympus Has Fallen”. I have actually read both scripts for both “Die Hard in the White House” movies, and honestly, “White House Down” reads better (it’s also way funnier). But I gotta admit, this trailer for “Olympus Has Fallen” ain’t half bad, surprisingly shoddy looking CGI notwithstanding…

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 as the invading bad guy.

Saving the White House before you know it this March 22, 2013.

    This is more like Under Siege than Die Hard, one man trying to stop a nuclear situation. To many common lines and speeches that almost copy Under Siege to a “T”.

      “Under Siege” was “Die Hard on a Boat”. “Die Hard” is the original, and should always be given its due.

        That’s even more DIE HARD than I expected.
