London Has Fallen gets a destructive teaser poster

A few years ago, two Presidential action movies were released. While WHITE HOUSE DOWN seemed to have the better budget behind it, OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN had the benefit of opening months earlier in theaters. A modest hit, it was successful enough to warrant an internationally set sequel that takes the political explosions across the pond.

While we have yet to see a trailer for LONDON HAS FALLEN, the newly released international teaser poster comes just as England completes one of the most contentious elections in recent memory. Where the first film used the White House as the focal point for devastation, this poster uses the symbol of Big Ben to get across the point that no landmark is safe from terrorists bent on crossing Gerard Butler the wrong way.

The sequel to the worldwide smash hit “Olympus Has Fallen,” a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN came from director Antoine Fuqua who has gone on to bigger and more marquee projects like THE EQUALIZER and the upcoming sports drama SOUTHPAW. Moving to the less known Babak Najafi should make for some intriguing changes.

LONDON HAS FALLEN opens on October 2, 2015.
