Today, we’re happy to debut an exclusive clip for London Has Fallen, the action sequel starring Gerard Butler as the loyal and lethal Secret Service head, Mike Banning, tasked with protecting the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) in the midst of another terrorist attack. Directed by Babak Najafi, the follow-up to the brutal and bonkers actioner Olympus Has Fallen finds Butler‘s Secret Service head accompanying the President to the London funeral of the British Prime Minister, which becomes a target for a terrorist organization looking to wipe out the world’s most powerful leaders. Fortunately, Banning is a badass of epic proportions and just the guy to keep the leader of the free world safe.
Check out the exclusive clip below, which unfortunately entirely headstab free. It does, however, lay the groundwork for prime headstabbing circumstances, so that’s good. Also starring Morgan Freeman, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Sean O’Bryan, Charlotte Riley and Waleed Zuaiter, London Has Fallen hits theaters March 4, 2016.
Here’s the official synopsis for London Has Fallen:
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.
