London Has Fallen looks like a silly (but enjoyable) action throwback with Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart once again battling terrorists, only this time on UK soil. This one looks to have a bigger scope than 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, a movie that was a pretty fun flick and surprise box office hit.
The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
London Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Charlotte Riley, and Angela Bassett opens on March 4, 2015.
