At least they waited 24 hours, right??
The trailer for Gerard Butler's latest movie, Olympus Has Fallen, was just launched online — a day after the Presidential inauguration. At its core, the movie's about the First Lady dying, and then the President being captured by terrorists. Congrats on your second term swear-in, Mr. President!
Basically, it's Die Hard: White House Edition, with Gerard Butler going "Yippee Ki-Yay, Motherf***ers" all the way to the bank! LOLz!
Here's the plot synopsis:
"When the President (Aaron Eckhart) is taken hostage by a terrorist (Rick Yune), disgraced former agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is called back into service. Unfortunately, Banning is still haunted by the death of the First Lady (Ashley Judd), whom he could not save after a car accident."
The movie looks like your usual fair as far as action movies go, regardless of timing — which either makes it better or worse depending on how you look at it. HA!
Where's Jack Bauer when you need him, anyway??
