When Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, came out in 2013, no one expected it to be a franchise, but luckily for Butler, cities keep falling and he just happens to be there in the right place at the right time (if this was arson, he’d be the prime suspect by now). This time around Butler’s Mike Bannon has been framed for the attempted assassination of the President (Once again played by Morgan Freeman) and he must prove his innocence while also taking down the terrorist cell who really did the deed.
Joining Butler and Freeman in the film are Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Nick Nolte, and Danny Huston. Angel has Fallen hits theaters on August 23rd.
When there is an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), his trusted confidant, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. After escaping from capture, he becomes a man on the run and must evade his own agency and outsmart the FBI in order to find the real threat to the President. Desperate to uncover the truth, Banning turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger. ANGEL HAS FALLEN is directed by Ric Roman Waugh from a screenplay by Robert Mark Kamen and Matt Cook & Ric Roman Waugh, story by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt, and based on characters created by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt. Lionsgate and Millennium Media present, a Millennium Films/G-Base production.
