Ten brand new clips for Antoine Fuqua’s White House actioner Olympus Has Fallen have been released by movie’s distributor, FilmDistrict. I’m not sure if these clips sell me on the type of action we are going to see here. Does it feel too fancy for such a simple plot? Yes. Can I dig the cast? Yes. Will the cast win me over even if the movie is a mess of clichés and in shambles? No.
The film opens in the US / Canada March 22nd. It stars Gerard Butler as the hero, Aaron Eckhart as the President, along with Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo and Rick Yune.
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.
Note: One of the clips included in this list have been taken down. So now, there are only nine. Please don’t hurt us.
