Gerard Butler is Saving the President Again in London Has Fallen

1 July 2015 7:06 AM, PDT | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

So they made a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, you know, the 2013 White House Gerard Butler flick, the worse one of the two (not that White House Down was a masterpiece). This is the teaser trailer for London Has Fallen. Why? No, really, why make a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen? The money? $161 […]

First London Has Fallen Trailer Takes Down Historic Monuments

1 July 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In 2013, Antoine Fuqua's President-in-peril actioner Olympus Has Fallen introduced Gerard Butler as disgraced Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, who was tasked with saving Commander-in-Chief Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) when terrorists shut the White House down. In their second adventure together, London Has Fallen, Banning and Asher attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister, who died under mysterious circumstances. With world leaders in attendance to pay their respects, another terrorist organization seizes on this perfect opportunity to take them all out. And yet none of this is revealed in the first look at director Babak Najafi's sequel. That's fine. This is a teaser trailer. All we really need to see is Butler and Eckhart running around amidst explosions while the historic monuments of London crumble down around them to the eerie, minor-keyed tune of "London Bridge Is Falling Down". Subtlety is not what these films aim for, and I respect that. »

Watch: Gerard Butler Takes On Terrorists In First Trailer For 'London Has Fallen'

1 July 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Depending on where your politics lay, "London Has Fallen" may also be an all too accurate description of the recent election results in the United Kingdom. But it's also the title of the unlikely sequel of the unlikely hit "Olympus Has Fallen," the first of the dueling 2013 blockbusters about the White House coming under siege (the other was "White House Down," which earned more at the box office, but also had double the budget). And the first trailer has arrived for another tale of bad guys, honorable presidents and the people who work for them. Read More: Review: 'White House Down' Starring Channing Tatum & Jamie Foxx Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, and Charlotte Riley are among the ensemble for this one which takes the story across the pond.

Why 'Magic Mike Xxl' Is Still a Soderbergh Movie: Review and Roundup

30 June 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Even though I enjoyed Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 “Magic Mike,” I went into Gregory Jacobs’ sequel “Xxl” with low expectations, expecting to be entertained by Channing Tatum, at least. That's because the well-muscled model-turned-actor, 36, who broke out a decade ago in the gritty street drama “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints” and energetic dance romance “Step Up” has become a reliable movie star.  What does that mean? No matter how bad the movie—and there have been a few Hollywood clinkers, from “The Dilemma” and the two “G.I. Joe” actioners to “White House Down” and "Jupiter Ascending"—he’s believable. The bad stuff bounces off him like Teflon, and he survives with his charisma intact. Every time. Tatum’s just delightful to watch on screen, no matter what he does, drama ("Foxcatcher," “Stop Loss”) or comedy (the “21 Jump Street” series). Did his background as a stripper make him confident and »

Exclusive First Look At London Has Fallen

24 June 2015 2:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

When we last saw him in Olympus Has Fallen, Gerard Butler’s peppery secret service agent Mike Banning had seen off most of North Korea’s special forces in a flurry of punching, gunplay and salty quips. At the time he may have seen an unlikely candidate to John McClane his way to a sequel, especially up against the more generously-budgeted White House Down, but audiences liked the cut of his jibes and back he is. This time it’s the Old Smoke that’s falling. Empire’s new issue features a first look at Banning in action in London Has Fallen. Click below for a closer look. This sequence, shot in the same Charing Cross location used in Skyfall, sees Butler’s agent dispensing justice to a terrorist in a rubble-strewn Underground station. Well, hopefully it's a terrorist. It could just be a commuter who's picked the wrong man to ask directions from. »

Channing Tatum Dresses as a Creepy Old Guy and Surprises Magic Mike Fans

4 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Channing Tatum just seems like an awesome dude. I’ve interviewed him a few times, on the sets of 22 Jump Street and White House Down, and he genuinely is the person you’d expect him to be. Funny, kind, passionate, and totally humble about just how famous he’s become. A great example of this is a […]

Channing Tatum and Sony to Make ‘Two Kisses for Maddy’

29 May 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Channing Tatum has set up the tear-jerker memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy” at Sony’s TriStar label to produce and possibly star through his Free Association production company and Temple Hill Entertainment.

The father-daughter drama is based on Matthew Logelin’s memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love,” which centers on his marriage, the death of his wife 27 hours after she gave birth to their daughter and his experiences of raising his daughter as a single parent.

“Two Kisses,” which took its title from the kisses Logelin gave his daughter each night, landed on the New York Times bestseller list when it was published in 2011.

The project was set up in 2012 as a Lifetime movie with Marta Kaufman and Denise Dinovi as exec producers but did not go forward.

Tatum will produce with partner Peter Kiernan through Free Association. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will also produce under Temple Hill. »

Two new posters for ‘London Has Fallen’ have arrived

28 May 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve got to admit that I was one of the few to favour the Channing Tatum/ Jamie Foxx Die-Hard-In-The-White-House movie White House Down over Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen, but the latter was the clear winner and the biggest hits with fans upon its release. So much so that a sequel to the film is set to arrive in cinemas this October. Gerard Butler returns in the lead role, alongside a strong supporting cast in Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Charlotte Riley and Angela Bassett.

We’ve just received two new posters for the England-set action-epic, titled London Has Fallen, which you can see below. First up, the synopsis.

The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen 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. But what starts out »

Destruction Goes City-Wide In New London Has Fallen Posters

28 May 2015 5:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Focus Features/Gramercy Pictures

The 2013 showdown between movies about a former soldier saving the President from terrorists in the White House was an unexpected, oddly hard fought one. Although the victor in terms of box office gross was Roland Emmerich’s White House Down with $205.4 million, it did so on a $150 million budget, making Olympus Has Fallen’s $161 million on half the upfront cost the real success.

And so it is that London Has Fallen will arrive in October 2015, with Gerard ButlerAaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman all returning for some more explosive action under the eye of Swedish director Babak Najafi. The film sees President Asher and Mike Banning in London for the funeral of the Prime Minister, who died under mysterious circumstances that no doubt tie into the inevitable destruction.

Two new posters for the film, giving a tease of the level of destruction that’ll be levelled on the British capital, »

Sony Classics Buys Dan Rather Scandal Movie Led by Redford and Blanchett

19 May 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The authenticity of Rather's sources was called into question, Mapes was swiftly fired and Rather resigned in 2005. Elisabeth Moss, Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid also appear in "Truth," the directorial debut of "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "White House Down" screenwriter James VanderbiltBrad Fischer, William Sherak, Vanderbilt and Mikkel Bondesen produce with Brett Ratner, Doug Mankoff and Andy Spaulding, and Mythology Entertainment.

Kate Beckinsale Slips On Black Latex Again for 'Underworld 5'

15 May 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm a fan of the Underworld franchise, though not Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which starred Rhona Mitra rather than franchise centerpiece Kate Beckinsale, though Beckinsale returned for 2012's Underworld Awakening, which wasn't half-bad, and now we learn she's coming on for one more as a fifth film has just been greenlit. Titled Underworld: Next Generation, Beckinsale will return as the werewolf hunting vampire Selene with Anna Foerster set to direct. Foerster is best known as Roland Emmerich's cinematographer on the likes of Anonymous and White House Down and is also attached to direct Source Code 2, though I'm not holding my breath for that film's release. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter that also says Insurgent star Theo James, who appeared briefly as fellow vampire David in Awakening, will reprise his role though James was asked about the possibility of returning earlier this year and told Digital Spy, »

'Underworld 5' Gets Kate Beckinsale Back as Selene!

14 May 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Actress Kate Beckinsale has finalized a deal to return as the vampire Selene in Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems' new Underworld 5. We last reported on the Underworld 5 back in September, when Underworld Awakening star Theo James signed on to reprise his role as David, although, at the time, it wasn't believed that Kate Beckinsale would be back as Selene. Our earlier report also revealed that the production was seeking two actresses to play brand new female characters.

The sequel has also brought on director Anna Foerster, who will make her feature debut. She previously served as a second unit director for Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, and she also served as his director of photography on 2013's White House Down. She has also directed episodes of Starz's Outlander and CBS' Madam Secretary.

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 »

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, »
