Focus Features has debuted the international London Has Fallen teaser poster, which you can view below. The sequel is scheduled to open in theaters on October 2nd.
Directed by Babak Najafi from a script by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt, Christian Gudegast, and Chad St. John, London Has Fallen stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Charlotte Riley, Sean O’Bryan, Alon Aboutboul, Waleed Zuaiter.
The film is a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, which earned $161 million worldwide in 2013. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.
