London Has Fallen movie quotes continue the story started in the 2013 film Olympus Has Fallen following the President of the United States of America and one Secret Service agent who must protect themselves from terrorists. The action thriller was written by Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt, Chad St. John and Christian Gudegast. Directed by Babak Najafi, London Has Fallen opened in theaters on March 4, 2016.
In London Has Fallen, American President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) heads to London for an impromptu trip, the funeral of the British Prime Minister. His closest Secret Service agent, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), goes with him and soon gets the feeling that despite the massive security at the event, something is not right. These feelings ring true when terrorists strike and take out five world leaders.
While Mike and POTUS flee, the terrorist leader behind the attack, Aamir Barkawi (Alon Moni Aboutboul), begins to search for the American President and make demands on the rest of the US Government including Vice President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), Secretary of Defense Ruth McMillan (Melissa Leo) and Director of the United States Secret Service Lynne Jacobs (Angela Bassett). This sets up a cat and mouse game between the sides with the US looking for Barkawi, Mike and Asher laying low in London and Barkawi, while searching for the President, carrying out additional terrorist attacks in the meantime.London Has Fallen joined theaters already showing other films including Zootopia, Triple 9, Gods of Egypt, and Deadpool.
