Lionsgate has released the first trailer for the upcoming action movie Angel Has Fallen, which is the sequel to the films Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. In this new movie, Gerard Butler is back as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning and he is framed for attempting to kill the President of the United States, who is played by Morgan Freeman.
Here’s the synopsis:
When there is an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), his trusted confidant, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. After escaping from capture, he becomes a man on the run and must evade his own agency and outsmart the FBI in order to find the real threat to the President. Desperate to uncover the truth, Banning turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.
Nick Nolte also stars in the movie along with Danny Huston, Michael Landes, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Lance Reddick. When talking about the film, Butler told EW:
“It’s the same man in the same position, but it’s a much deeper, darker journey. There’s still huge set pieces and we made sure not to disappoint the fans of the first two, but you’re really inside this character, watching him try to get his shit together.”
Angel Has Fallen hits theaters on August 23rd.
