First up is “Olympus Has Fallen,” starring Gerard Butler. No, it’s not a “300” prequel even though it sounds like one. Butler is the lone Secret Service agent trapped in a White House full of terrorists. Do I need to tell you that said agent messed up on a previous mission and is seeking redemption? Didn’t think so. Morgan Freeman is the Speaker of the House who becomes acting president. Antoine Fuqua, director of “Training Day” is at the helm.
Here’s the trailer:
“Olympus” is coming March 22.
For the first but I’m sure not the last time in 2013, let me try to clear up the inevitable confusion. The other extremely similar project is “White House Down” starring Channing Tatum as the Secret Service agent and Jamie Foxx as the president.
