Following the immense success of the 2013 action hit Olympus Has Fallen, Lionsgate is proud to present the first teaser trailer for the heart-pounding sequel London Has Fallen. Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are all back in this sneak peek. Short yet sweet, this footage perfectly sets up a new chapter in the thrilling franchise, which arrives as a reminder of why you loved the first movie so much, followed by 40 seconds of explosions.

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 who rightly trusts no one.
