Gerard Butler returns as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning in director Ric Roman Waugh’s new action-thriller, Angel Has Fallen.
Acting as a sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, which first introduced Banning to audiences, and 2016’s London Has Fallen, the latest film in the franchise will see a framed Banning trying to save the President’s life. Morgan Freeman will take on the role of the leader of the Free World, stepping in for Aaron Eckhart who played the part in the first two films.
In the first trailer for the film, Banning has been promoted to director of the Secret Service. However things quickly take a turn when a terrorist attack against the President occurs. After waking up from the incident, Banning finds out he’s been framed for the attempted assassination and soon finds himself on the run. Not one to let go, he continues his task of saving the President while trying to find out who is behind it all.
Angel Has Fallen also stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Nick Nolte, and Danny Huston and lands in theaters on August 23.
The film is sure to be a box office hit considering Olympus Has Fallen earned a hefty $170 million USD while London Has Fallen earned $205 million USD worldwide, respectively.
