Presidents are always going after terrorists, so it’s an interesting mix when the tables are turned and we see terrorists going after presidents. Olympus Has Fallen isn’t the first movie to feature a president held hostage at the hands of a terrorist. We saw it before in the excellent Harrison Ford drama Air Force One, but this time the commander isn’t in the air, he’s trapped in the White House. Sound the alarm, home base is under attack!
The film boasts a well rounded cast of Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Basset, Gerard Butler, and Rick Yune in the role of terror mastermind Kang.
The White House explodes into theaters March 22nd.
