Olympus Has Fallen is the story of the unthinkable when heavily armed and highly trained terrorists launch a bold daytime attack on the White House. The building is overrun, and President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart), and his staff are taken hostage by a terrorist mastermind.
Luckily for Asher, disgraced former presidential security officer Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself trapped in the the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House. With time running out, it’s up to Banning to locate Asher’s son Conner (Finley Jacobsen) before the extremists do and rescue the President before his captors unleash their ultimate plan.
