The first trailer has arrived for Antoine Fuqua‘s Olympus Has Fallen, in which Gerard Butler goes badass with guns trying to save the president and the White House.
Aaron Eckhart plays the president of the US, while Gerard Butler is his closest bodyguard. After an accident that sees Butler try in vain to save the first lady (potential short screen time for Ashley Judd) he’s stood down from active service, until he is called on to save the day.
Morgan Freeman then steps in to help co-ordinate the carnage from outside The White House walls, as a the action gets ramped up in every way possible. It’s the kind of scenerio that you might find Stallone or Arnie in, but Butler fits the hero mold very well by the look of things.
Check out the trailer…
There is an equally cool poster to go along with the trailer…
Co-starring Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd and Angela Bassett, Olympus Has Fallen will open in the UK on 19 April 2013.
