It's typical, you wait years for a White House hostage thriller, and then two come along at once. Before Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) gets a chance to protect Jamie Foxx's (Django Unchained) Potus in Roland Emmerich's White House Down, Gerard Butler (Machine Gun Preacher) will perform said duties for Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) in Training Day director Antoine Fuqua's latest action thriller Olympus Has Fallen, which has just received its first poster and trailer today.

"When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster."
