London Has Fallen

Posted on Jan 13, 2016

London Has Fallen, the sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen, is based on a premise that is probably even more timely today than when it was conceived. After the British Prime Minister dies under mysterious circumstances, his funeral becomes a must-attend event for the leaders of the Western world. With security at unprecedented levels, this London gathering of the world’s most powerful leaders becomes the most protected event on earth. But that doesn’t stop a group of terrorists whose goal is to unleash their own terrifying vision of the future. 

In fact, the terrorists succeed in carrying out a series of deadly attacks that leave five leaders dead and the city of London decimated. Now the terrorists are threatening to cause worldwide chaos by attacking other major cities around the world, too. The only hope of stopping the mayhem lies on the shoulders of U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart); the head of the Secret Service, once-disgraced Presidential guard member Mike Banning (Gerard Butler); and a British M16 agent (Charlotte Riley). Meanwhile, back in the U.S., Vice President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) tries to find a way to reduce the number of international casualties without giving in to the terrorists’ demands.

London Has Fallen was directed by Babak Najafi and written by Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt and Chad St. John. This action thriller is scheduled to be released into theaters on March 4, 2016 by Gramercy Pictures. Also starring Alon Moni Aboutboul, Angela Basset, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Sean O’Bryan and Waleed F. Zuaiter.
