londonhasfallen1_optWhen the British Prime Minster dies unexpectedly, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler, Olympus Has Fallen) knows it is his duty to prep with Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs (Angela Bassett, Green Lantern) for them to accompany U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart, Rabbit Hole) to the state funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. With every powerful world leader set to attend, the funeral should be the most protected event on Earth. Yet within moments of arriving, heads of government are assassinated and London landmarks are attacked. Asher, Banning, and Jacobs are ambushed and retreat amidst a hail of gunfire and explosives. The devastated British capital goes into lockdown while, back at the White House, the Vice President (Morgan Freeman, Oblivion) races against time brainstorming with top advisors in the Situation Room to get those trapped in London a lifeline of support and a way out.  For his part, Banning will stop at nothing to secure Asher’s safe return home…
