EXCLUSIVE: ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Interviews with Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart

Antoine Fuqua has made quite a career out of directing gritty, intensely violent thrillers. Olympus Has Fallen makes his other films, like Training Day and Brooklyn's Finest, look like after school specials. Gerard Butler is ferocious as a disgraced Secret Service agent trying to rescue the President (Aaron Eckhart) from brutal terrorists. I think most audiences are going to be very surprised by how visceral this film is. We recently caught up with the cast and crew for some exclusive interviews. Watch as Antoine Fuqua comments on his no-holds barred take on the material. Gerard Butler discusses the rawness of hand-to-hand combat, and the loss of his high pitch because of a loose bone in his throat. The entire ensemble praises their director's vision, and each other in keeping things light after shooting such stressful scenes. Here's our exclusive chat with Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Dylan McDermott, Rick Yune, Angela Bassett and director Antoine Fuqua.





Olympus Has Fallen was released March 22nd, 2013.
