    The only thing that bugs me about this is the ease at which they accomplish a task like that.

    There's another Take Over The White House movie coming out later this year with Tatum in the Butler role and Foxx as President. It's coming out in June and called White House Down.

    Looks like a rip off of the first Mitch Rapp book.

    I just got the weirdest sense of deja vu from this thread.

    That said, it looks like a fun film. Though the CGI looks like crap it's got a strong cast.

    Hell, I'll pop some corn, pour a stiff drink, put fire to purple-green leaves and enjoy the shit out of this on my TV.

    Just saw an advanced screening of this film. The film is total garbage... but it's total, glorious garbage. It reminded me of an old-school 80s Action Movie without the winking and nodding, the "Hey, we're doing a retro film!" vibe. Don't think too hard, or you won't have fun. It's total schlock, but it's schlock that'll put a smile on your face. There are tonal shifts, but it's almost forgivable because it's just silly.

    Most fun I've had watching a movie in the theater in a long, long time.

    Not the total lack of Steven Seagal?

    I recommend reading "Transfer of Power" by Vince Flynn

    If Chuck Norris and Steve Seagal squared off in a no holds bared match, who would win?

    Nothing says "10 block radius" like reporters hanging around outside.

    Just listen to Gerard Butler already, assholes.

    'Olympus Has Fallen' To Have Sequel Where Gerard Butler Saves London
    October 29, 2013 / 1 Comments
    [​IMG]

    Millennium Films' Die Hard-but-in-the-White-House is, logically, getting its Die Harder-but-in-England. ScreenDaily reports plans are being made for a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, one of the year's two biggest films about a guy briefly interrupting his sit-up regimen to stop an attack on the U.S. President's home. Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, and Angela Bassett are all attached to reprise their roles, though the White House, sadly, will not. This time, the cast is headed to London, where there's a plot to destroy the city and "only the President of the United States, his secret service head and an English MI6 agent can save the day." (The UK government is weakened and distracted by the funeral of the British Prime Minister, and they lack a trained Gerard Butler except in real life.)

    The film is obviously going by the title London Has Fallen. Production is already scheduled to begin in May, though a director has not yet been announced. Antoine Fuqua is not returning, so smart money says to hold out for Buckingham Palace Has Fallen.
