Lionsgate released the first trailer for Angel Has Fallen. Gerard Butler returning as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning.
Butler spoke with EW about the new film.
“We really hadn’t had much screen time together,” Butler tells EW of working with Morgan Freeman’s character Allan Trumbull . “But we very quickly established these two like-minded souls and this strong bond and respect for each other and this father figure that had developed for [Mike].”
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.
Angel Has Fallen is directed by Ric Roman Waugh from a screenplay by Robert Mark Kamen and Matt Cook & Ric Roman Waugh, story by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt, and based on characters created by Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt. Lionsgate and Millennium Media present, a Millennium Films/G-Base production.
