Hot New Trailer & Poster For ‘Olympus Has Fallen’

olympus2013! The year of the battle of the “Two White House Contained Thriller” movies. For you non-screenwriter types, contained thrillers are Die Hard movies inside a building or other tight location. This year we got not one but two Die Hard Inside The White House movies. In one corner we have Roland Emmerich’s White House Down starring Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) as a secret service agent and Django (Jamie Foxx) as the President. In the other corner we got Gerard Butler as the secret service agent and Aaron Eckhart as the President in Olympus Has Fallen. I read the scripts for the two films and they are both equally fun.

The slight lead goes to Olympus Has Fallen because FilmDistrict has just released the trailer and poster which we have for you below. The movie drops March 22. I can’t wait.

Here is your synopsis:

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 our 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.

    Not really. The script has some surprises.

  • Mallet

    Isn’t this the same plot/events as happened during the middle part of the last season of 24?

    terrorists take over the white house, take the president hostage and it’s up to an ex-special forces agent (Jack Bauer) to save the day?
