The Team Reassembles Across the Pond in First Trailer for ‘London Has Fallen’

The Team Reassembles Across the Pond in First Trailer for 'London Has Fallen'

Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, and Angela Bassett all reprise their roles in what will be a sequel to the Antoine Fuqua-directed White House actioner, “Olympus Has Fallen,” titled “London Has Fallen.” Although this one isn’t directed by Fuqua.

The Millennium Films production is directed by Swedish-Iranian filmmaker Babak Najafi, and will follow our good old American heroes as they set out to stop a terrorist plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders of the British Prime Minister’s funeral, in London. 

“Olympus Has Fallen” grossed $161 million worldwide ($98 million of that was domestic), on a $70 million production budget (not including P&A costs); enough of a box office hit for FilmDistrict (the releasing studio, recently swallowed up by Universal) to consider backing a sequel.

A spring 2016 release date is eyed.

Here’s the first full trailer to hold you over:
