In 2013 the White House will be under attack not once, but twice as Roland Emmerich brings us White House Down (6/8) and Antoine Fuqua delivers Olympus Has Fallen, the latter of which is the first to the table with a trailer and poster.

Olympus Has Fallen features Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo and Rick Yune in a story in which the White House (Secret Service Code: "Olympus") is captured by a terrorist and the President (Eckhart) is kidnapped. Former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) 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.

FilmDistrict will release Olympus on March 22. Check out the trailer and poster below.

    Die Hard 6: Gerald Butler?

    • DavidG

      Ya pretty much

  • ckybltz


    Not in a good way.

    Those were some pretty piss poor CGI effects. Wow.

  • Andrew J.S.

    When that plane flew in I started cracking up

  • Xarnis

    How many times is Roland Emmerich going to destroy The White House?

    • kash

      i cracked a rib laughing.

    • Winchester

      You do realise this isn't the Emmerich one, right? Not to say Emmerich won't in his film............but it would just seem so obvious and expected of him.

      • Xarnis

        My mistake, as this is from Antoine Fuqua. I got it confused with 'White House Down' which is an Emmerich film about the White House being taken over, coming out this year.

  • Xarnis

    This looks like a bit of good, mindless action, but they need to fix that CGI. It looked awful.

  • flerk

    Well, that looked like shite.

  • Lewis

    impressive. i wonder if obama is inside when it blows up....

  • JAB

    I love the cast, but it's Antoine Fuqua's directing that has me most excited about this "Die Hard in the White House" movie. (I trust that Mr. Fuqua will breathe new life into this premise.)

  • kash

    And here i thought Tatum's White House Down was the official "Die hard in the white house" feature. What is the deal with hollywood forking out similar-themed movies in the same year or within weeks/months of each other, really?
    - Oblivion vs. After Earth
    - Mirror Mirror vs Snow White and the Huntsman
    - Megamind vs Despicable Me
    - Skyline vs Battle : LA
    - Deep Impact vs Armageddon

  • G-Man

    This looks fun. I'm down.

  • EPayneDDS

    Wow that CGI looked like ass.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Why is the CSI so disgustingly bad?? Get it together hollywood!

  • JN Films

    I was laughing the whole entire trailer. Wow that CGI is bad. My hope for this film lies with Eckhart and freeman.

  • Topy

    It's a mess
