Olympus Has Fallen is an action thriller starring Gerard Butler, (former A-list movie star, now teetering on the D-list). When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning 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.
Olympus Has Fallen is one of two movies arriving in theaters in 2013 that feature a terrorist takeover of the White House.
Gerard Butler has tried to resuscitate a career that has spiraled downward during the past few years, yet fell even further with the December 2012 big screen box office bomb
