FilmDistrict will release OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN in theaters March 22, 2013
Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day)
About The Film:
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 Banning¹s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger crisis.
Lynne Jacobs is the steely, strict, and tough director of the Secret Service. Excellent at her job, she’s known for always having everything under control. After terrorists take control of the White House, she’s a vital part of the security team working feverishly to save the president and her country during the crisis.
A veteran politician, he is well-spoken, a respected leader and composed under pressure. Assuming command when the President is taken hostage, he will have to make the most difficult decisions of his life in order to protect his country.
Aaron Eckhart is President Benjamin Asher in Olympus Has Fallen.
He is everything the President of the United States should be: strong, proud and unyielding. He loves his country almost as much as he loves his son - his only weakness. With the country facing its biggest threat, Asher must remain steadfast and resourceful as he faces a terror unlike any he could have ever foreseen.
Gerard Butler is Secret Service Agent Mike Banning in Olympus Has Fallen.
Removed from Presidential Protection Detail after a tragic accident, Banning has been relegated to desk duty. But when terrorists capture the White House and kidnap the President, Banning jumps back into action and finds himself with one more chance to make things right.
