In 2013, Gerard Butler kicked ass in Olympus Has Fallen and now the Scottish star is back to save the world from certain chaos in London Has Fallen.
Following the events of Olympus, the story picks up in London where the British Prime Minister has died under mysterious circumstances and his funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the Western world. What starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States of America Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart), his formidable Secret Service lead agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), and a British MI6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one.
While the first film was contained within the confines of the White House, for the sequel director Babak Najafi is taking the action out into the open, and is also creating more of a team atmosphere with Aaron Eckhart’s President Ben Asher also having to fight back just as much as Gerard Butler’s Mike Banning.
The first movie was an instant action classic, and we’re very excited for this sweet new sequel which will open in cinemas on February 18, 2016.
