With just a few weeks left until the action-packed sequel London Has Fallen hits theaters on March 4, a new clip has debuted which showcases a thrilling chase sequence through the streets of London. This scene, courtesy of Machinima, features Gerard Butler as Mike Banning, reprising his role from 2013's Olympus Has Fallen, who is once again trying to protect President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart). This clip also provides a lesson for would-be pursuers, showing what could happen if one follows a car too closely.
This sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen moves the action across the pond to London, in what promises to be a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller. It will deliver high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: After the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world's most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future.
London 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. However, 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, and an English MI-6 agent!
London Has Fallen once again stars Gerard Butler as Secret Service agent Mike Banning alongside Aaron Eckhart as the President of the United States. Also returning are Morgan Freeman as Vice President Trumbull, Angela Bassett as Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs, and Melissa Leo as Defense Secretary Ruth McMillan. Babak Najafi directs the thriller from a screenplay by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt, who wrote the original Olympus Has Fallen, along with new writers Christian Gudegast (A Man Apart) and Chad St. John (The Punsher: Dirty Laundry).
This sequel was originally set for an October 2, 2015 release date, but it was moved to March 4, 2016 last summer. It will be going up against Disney's animated comedy Zootopia, 20th Century Fox's thriller The Other Side of the Door and Paramount's comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Take a look at this new clip below along with 2 new posters, and stay tuned for more on London Has Fallen.
