New Trailer for Olympus Has Fallen

I have to admit, I wasn’t terribly impressed with the first trailer for Antoine Fuqua’s “Die Hard in the White House” movie “Olympus Has Fallen”. Besides the general shoddy nature of the film’s CGI, which were very obvious in the trailer, it wasn’t hard to believe they really rushed the film through production and kicked out a trailer way before it was ready in order to get ahead of Roland Emmerich’s similarly themed film “White House Down”. This TV spot doesn’t exactly undo all that damage, but it is a hell of an improvement.

IMDB calls this a new trailer, but it looks more like a TV spot to me. I mean, it’s barely 40 seconds long. Trailers should at least be a minute, right?

Disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.

“Olympus Has Fallen” stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, and Rick Yune.

Yippie-ki-yaying it in the White House this March 22, 2013.
