You’re forgiven if 2013 felt a little too much for you when it came to the “battle of the White House hostage thrillers” between Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen
and Roland Emmerich’s White House Down
. Thankfully, 2015 won’t see a contest between who can destroy London the best with a hero still managing staying on top, and for this, Snabba Cash 2
helmer Babak Najafi is on hand with a follow-up to the former with the new film, London Has Fallen
The story begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
Butler, who led the first film, has always been a frontrunner for “action hero” status and so it’s a little odd that he hasn’t stayed as busy in those efforts as of late. It’s nice to see him back in action as I predict this one will do just as well as the first in the box office upon its October 2 release.
