New featurette and character posters for Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman

Feb. 15, 2013by: Paul Shirey

In what would've been a better plot for the latest DIE HARD film, the new action thriller OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Radha Mitchell, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo, Cole Hauser, Rick Yune, and Dylan McDermott has a new featurette to further drive that point home.  Directed by Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) the film follows a former secret service agent (Butler) as he fights against a group of terrorists who have seized the White House.  The first trailer was released a while ago, which generated mixed feelings, seeing as a lot of the effects work are a little less than stellar, but I still think it looks like a fun time.  Of course I said the same thing about A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD and look how that turned out...

Take a look:

Butler has had a difficult go of succeeding past his awesome portrayal of Leonidas in Zack Snyder's 300, jumping from the rom-com pics to over-the-top action films, none of them really solidifying him as a mainstay.  However, I think he's got good charisma and can pull off the bad ass aspect with little effort.  The supporting cast here is pretty awesome to say the least, so he's certainly got the best back-up one could have in a movie like this.  Hopefully, this will be a fun, silly action romp, rather than an embarrassing misfire. 

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN gets overrun on March 22, 2013.

And here's the character posters:

I've only seen 3 Gerald Butler movies

300, the one with Jaime Fox where he is killing the shit out of everybody, and the one where he locks Jennifer Aniston in the trunk of his car. So he is 2/3 for me. I'll check this out.

I've never heard of this movie before but I wanna watch it now. Maybe this is just me but nowadays everytime I see Dylan McDermott, I always think of that SNL skit - Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney. Hahaha.

The premise is simple and the movie should be entertaining as hell. I like the posters and am glad that Dylan McDermott is getting some love.

This does look like it will be fun. Air Force One is one of my all-time favourites, and I'm game for another action thriller along those lines. The cast does sound very cool too. I was watching the featurette embedded above, but then it cut off. Might be a problem on Yahoo Movies' end though.
