Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman are back with the third instalment of the Olympus Has Fallen franchise.
The brand new trailer gives us a brief reminder of the events from the previous films, Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen as we see Butler’s Mike Banning charged with the attempted murder of Freeman’s President Trumball.
The trailer also shows Banning escaping and going on the run, teaming up with his Dad (Nick Nolte) as they attempt to catch the team who attempted to kill the President.
The trailer is pretty explosive but it does leave you feeling like you’ve already seen the plot unfold before your eyes, but given the success of the franchise, the new trailer will no doubt get a lot of fans excited for the third instalment.
Check out the trailer below:
As well as Butler, Freeman and Nolte, the cast will also feature Jada Pinkett Smith as FBI Agent Thompson and Piper Perabo will be playing Mike Branning’s wife, Leah Branning, replacing Radha Mitchell who played the character in the previous two outings.
Directed by Ric Roman Waugh, Angel Has Fallen will be the third instalment of the franchise, which started back in 2013 with Olympus Has Fallen and the sequel London Has Fallen which was released in 2016.
Angel Has Fallen will be released by Lionsgate and is set for release in the UK on August 21 2019.
