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.

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 »

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, »

Millennium Films and Focus Features have released a new poster and banner for London Has Fallen, the upcoming sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, which shifts the action to the UK and reunites cast members Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman. Check them out here…
The story begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. 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, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English Mi-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »
