The first trailer for London Has Fallen, the sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, has been released.
Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo and Angela Bassett all reprise their roles from the 2013 film, which followed a North Korean-led guerrilla assault on the White House. Although Olympus Has Fallen received mixed reviews from film critics, it performed better than expected at the box office and eventually grossed over $161m (£107m) at cinemas worldwide.
The sequel centres on a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders as they attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister, who has recently died in mysterious circumstances.
Second time out, Easy Money 2 director Babak Najafi replaces Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) in the director’s chair. Olympus Has Fallen screenwriters Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt once again penned the script, this time joined by Chad St. John.
London Has Fallen will open in cinemas on March 4, 2016. Check out the trailer below.
