Lock up your valuables, Londoners, wrap the cat in cotton wool and retreat to the nearest panic room, cupboard or safe place because the unlikely Olympus franchise is heading your way. And by the looks of these two new posters for sequel London Has Fallen, it’s taking most of the tourist attractions with it. Click below for a closer look. Whichever dastardly forces are at play in the **Olympus Has Fallen **sequel clearly have an even bigger, more nefarious plan in place than the North Koreans in the first instalment – and they basically blew up Washington.
Again, it’s left to Gerard Butler’s secret service guy, Mike Banning, to save the day, possibly with a little help from one of his MI6 counterparts (Charlotte Riley), when Aaron Eckhart’s President Benjamin Asher is targeted in London at the funeral of the Prime Minister. Other world leaders are also in jeopardy. Angela Bassett’s Secret Service director Lynn Jacobs and Morgan Freeman’s Speaker Allan Trumbull are both on hand to lend a hand/thicken the plot.
Radha Mitchell is back as Leah Banning, with Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Robert Forster and Colin Salmon all aboard. Christian Gudegast, Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt were on scripting duties.
Find out if poor Aaron Eckhart manages to avoid spending this one handcuffed to a railing when London Has Fallen arrives on October 2.
