The new trailer shows plenty of action, with Butler front and centre in the Die-Hard-esque thriller. The film also stars Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Dylan McDermott. Director Antoine Fuqua is no stranger to action, having previously helmed films like Training Day and Shooter. He works off a screenplay by writers Katrin Benedik and Creighton Rothenberger, for which this is their first credit.
The synopsis, new stills and brand new trailer can be found below. Olympus Has Fallen will be released in US theatres March 22, 2013, with a UK debut to follow on April 19th.
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 the 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.
