‘London Has Fallen’ Gets A Teaser Poster

11 May 2015 2:51 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hot off the British General Elections comes the destruction of Big Ben, one of London’s most famous landmarks in this first teaser poster for the late-Fall opener London Has Fallen.

The film, which is the sequel to the 2013 success Olympus Has Fallen, sees Gerard Butler return as Secret Service agent Mike Banning who travels to England’s capital with Aaron Eckhart’s President Benjamin Asher, Angela Bassett’s Secret Service Director Lynn Jacobs and Morgan Freeman’s Speaker Trumbull for the funeral of Britain’s Prime Minister, where it all starts to kick off.

As you can see from this destructive poster, our lovely city takes a bit of a battering, and it’s up to Banning to save the day. Die Hard in London indeed.

Radha Mitchell, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Robert Forster and Colin Salmon also star. London Has Fallen opens in the UK on October 2nd. »

London Has Fallen Poster Blows Up Big Ben

10 May 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Well, this was predictable. Whenever a big Hollywood action film so much as thinks to visit London, you know destruction can’t be far behind. And it wasn’t tough to guess what might get it in the neck – or the clock face – first given the title of London Has Fallen. Say buh-bye to Big Ben (or, more accurately, part of the Elizabeth Tower) in this teaser poster. Following on from 2013’s surprise victor in the White House-in-peril box office arms race, Olympus Has Fallen, the new film heads across the pond to cause trouble here. Christian Gudegast, Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt are behind the script, which finds Gerard Butler’s Secret Service agent Mike Banning, Aaron Eckhart’s President Benjamin Asher, Angela Bassett’s Secret Service director Lynn Jacobs and Morgan Freeman’s Speaker Allan Trumbull among those who travel to London to attend the funeral of the Prime Minister. »

'London Has Fallen' Poster Blows Up Big Ben

8 May 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Big Ben suffers an embarrassing blow out in the first teaser poster for London Has Fallen! It seems the world's leaders have assembled in England, and as luck would have it, so have their enemies. Its up to the President and his dashing intelligence team to stop this threat and save the world this fall.

London Has Fallen is the sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen, and is a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world's most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart »

London Has Fallen Poster Has Big Ben In Big Trouble

8 May 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

London Has Fallen.s latest poster has been released and it proves that the film isn.t going to treat the English capital.s landmarks in the nicest fashion. In particular, Big Ben, which it looks as though will be trashed during the blockbuster. You can check out the stunning poster for London Has Fallen below.  Brutal, tragic stuff from Focus Features. I mean how are the people of London going to be able to tell the time now? Also, I.m going to put it out there, Big Ben In Big Trouble probably should have been the film.s title. London Has Fallen will re-team Gerard Butler.s sensational Secret Service agent Mike Banning with Aaron Eckhart.s President Benjamin Asher. However, rather than being stuck inside the White House, this time round they.ve travelled across the pond and have to stop the world.s most powerful men »

First Poster For London Has Fallen Says Goodbye To Big Ben

8 May 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Part of 2013’sympus was a tense and gritty affair  two man war of the White House set action movies, Olympus Has Fallen was a pretty tense and gritty affair, with Gerard Butler on hand to ably fill the action hero role. Now a sequel is coming our way, but how do you top trashing the home of the most powerful man in America? Go international, of course.  The first poster for London Has Fallen doesn’t hide the fact that the British capital is in for one hell of a time, with Big Ben getting destroyed while the rest of London burns, and it’s one hell of an image to announce a movie with. The original played it’s premise, which was essentially Die Hard, completely straight, which added a welcome dose of realism. The sequel, while definitely going bigger, will hopefully carry that over. Released: 2nd October  Synopsis: »

Explosive Marketing Tricks on 'London Has Fallen' Teaser Poster

8 May 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There goes Big Ben. Considering the results of the election in the UK today, it's a particularly perfect time for Focus Features to drop this poster for London Has Fallen. This sequel to Olympus Has Fallen is not the Roland Emmerich one (that was White House Down), instead it's the one with Gerard Butler. Who, believe it or not, is back for this sequel being directed by Babak Najafi. The massive cast includes: Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Charlotte Riley, Sean O’Bryan, Alon Aboutboul and Waleed Zuaiter. None of them are seen on this poster, because it's just a shot of the Big Ben clocktower being blown out. I guess we'll find out who did this later? Here's the first teaser poster for Babak Najafi's London Has Fallen, provided directly by Focus Features: The sequel to the »

Posters for 'London Has Fallen' and 'Bone Tomahawk' Couldn't be More Different

8 May 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I wouldn't typically choose to put these two posters in the same post, but they arrived at the same time and, well, I guess I'm lazy. Either way, just below are the posters for the Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen as well as the Kurt Russell-led Western Bone Tomahawk and they are about as far apart from one another in effort and quality as could possibly be. First for London Has Fallen, a sequel to the Antoine Fuqua film Olympus Has Fallen that once again find Gerard Butler playing a Secret Service agent only this time he's across the pond when trouble arises. After the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world's most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future.

First London Has Fallen Poster Is Already Hating British Landmarks

8 May 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There were two “Die Hard in the White House” movies in 2013: Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down. Sadly, it’s the former—which is more self-serious and therefore more disturbing—that’s getting the sequel. Focus Features has now released the first London Has Fallen poster, and unsurprisingly, it highlights the destruction on a major monument. Specifically, Big Ben is being blown out in this international teaser poster, but you can see that the rest of London is burning in the background. It will be interesting to see what others tourist destinations will be destroyed: London Bridge? Buckingham Palace? Piccadilly Circus? By the way, this isn’t me joking. This is literally from the original plot synopsis [emphasis mine]: However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, »

Here’s your first look at the poster for London Has Fallen – the sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen, a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity.

The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future.

The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English Mi-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one.

Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.

Sam Worthington Moves To The Shack

30 April 2015 5:36 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As he starts work on his new film, Exam director Stuart Hazeldine is building quite the cast. With Octavia Spencer already attached to play no lesser role than God, Sam Worthington is now aboard as the lead.Adapted by John Fusco from William Paul Young’s 2007 novel, the story follows a man (Worthington) whose youngest daughter is kidnapped during a family holiday. Evidence turns up in an abandoned shack to suggest she was murdered, which stymies the case. But then, four years later, he receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him to go back to the ruined building. He accepts, against his better judgment, and what he finds there changes his life forever. Given whom Spencer is playing, we’re guessing it won’t be a false lead.Hazeldine has been busy setting up the film, which has yet to lock in a release date. As for Worthington, he »

Sam Worthington Heads For Den Of Thieves

27 April 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A little less than a year ago, we reported on Gerard Butler agreeing to star in the long-developing heist thriller Den Of Thieves. It’s taken some time, but the film should finally be shooting this year as The Wrap reports that Sam Worthington is on board to co-star. Writer/director Christian Gudegast originally co-wrote the script with Paul Scheuring back in 1998 and watched it tumble through a void of meetings, drafts and decisions. At one point, Peter Berg appeared set to direct it, but moved on to other things. Then, in 2008, Gudegast was handed the chance to call the shots himself.Butler, who is also an executive producer, is playing the thief figuring out his most audacious robbery yet, taking down the Federal Reserve in Los Angeles under the nose of a corrupt sheriff’s deputy. The plan becomes even more complicated when he’s caught between two groups of criminals. »
