Three new posters have been released for Antoine Fuqua’s action film Olympus Has Fallen. The film stars Gerard Butler, who plays a disgraced Secret Service agent called back to duty when terrorists take over the White House and capture the President (Aaron Eckhart). Olympus Has Fallen will be the first of two “agent-saves-captured-White-House” action flicks this year, and I’m putting my money on Roland Emmerich‘s movie, White House Down because Emmerich knows you have to go big, go dumb, and go fun, or go home. Then again, last year I bet on Snow White and the Huntsman over Mirror Mirror for the Snow White movies, and the latter turned out to be the better film.
Hit the jump to check out posters for supporting cast members Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, and Rick Yune. Click on the respective links for the character posters for Butler, Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman. Olympus Has Fallen opens March 22nd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Olympus Has Fallen:
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 Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.
