Secret Service agent Mike Banning basically saved Western civilization twice since 2013, and now he stands accused of trying to kill the U.S. president in Angel Has Fallen. Check out the first trailer above.
Here’s how it goes down: Just after President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) tells his trusted confidant Banning (Gerard Butler) that he’s making him director of the Secret Service, there is a drone-based assassination attempt on Trumbull. The agent is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. After escaping from capture, Banning 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, he turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.
Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo co-star along with Nick Nolte and Danny Huston.
Ric Roman Waugh takes over the director’s chair for Angel Has Fallen and co-wrote the screenplay with Robert Mark Kamen and Matt Cook. Butler, Alan Siegel, Matt O’Toole, John Thompson, Les Weldon, Yariv Lerner are the producers. Lionsgate opens the explosion-laden and gunfire-strafed threequel from Millennium Films on August 23.
