When there is an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), his trusted confidant, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. After escaping from capture, he becomes a man on the run and must evade his own agency and outsmart the FBI in order to find the real threat to the President. Desperate to uncover the truth, Banning turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.
The third film in the series follows Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) as he becomes the target of a terrorist attack, this time while mid-flight on Air Force One. The film also stars Morgan Freeman (Se7en), Jada Pinkett Smith (The Matrix Reloaded), Lance Reddick (Fringe) and Piper Perabo (Covert Affairs). Mark Gill, Matt O’Toole, Alan Siegel, and John Thompson also star.
The original film, 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, saw the White House (codenamed “Olympus”) captured by a terrorist mastermind. The second film, 2016’s London Has Fallen, had Mike Banning get caught up in a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders at the Prime Minister’s funeral. The first movie made over $170 million worldwide, while the second took in over $205 million.
Angel Has Fallen is directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Shot Caller) and produced by Millennium Films. The movie was scripted by Olympus writers Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt. Avi Lerner, Christine Ota, and Trevor Short will serve as executive producers.
Angel Has Fallen will open on August 23.
