Olympus Has Fallen Trailer – Gerard Butler Dies Hard In The White House

Patrick Dane writes for Bleeding Cool

The premise for Antoine Fuqua‘s Olympus has Fallen is simple yet extravagant. What if a down in the dumps secret service member had to save the President when the White House comes under terrorist attack?

As far as the ‘rescue mission after terrorist attack’ genre goes this  is a bit bigger than Die Hard, but a bit smaller than Lockout.

Gerard Butler plays the secret service member, Aaron Eckhart plays the president and Morgan Freeman plays the president when the president can’t be the president. I assume he got the job from his Deep Impact experience.

You can watch that in HD over at Apple.

A terrorist leader who is young and Asian? Who’da thunk it.

Eckhart and Freeman seem like a good pairing for president(s), but we will have to see about Butler. He does really needs a win right about now.

And I do hope that the CG gets another pass. That looked distractingly ropey.
