Olympus Has Fallen Trailer: Gerard Butler Must Save President Aaron Eckhart

It's been quite the presidential week, what with the inauguration and now the trailer for Olympus Has Fallen. However, the latter is a bit more explosive: in the preview, secret service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is tasked with protecting the fictional commander in chief (Aaron Eckhart) until there's a horrible accident he can't prevent. Mike leaves his job for a lower-stakes desk job until the president — and the White House — are taken hostage and Mike is the only man who can rescue the leader of the free world.

If the plot sounds a bit familiar, then you may be thinking of another upcoming 2013 release, White House Down, which has a frighteningly close premise (but with Channing Tatum in a role similar to Butler's). But similarity or none, Olympus Has Fallen looks like a big, fun, flashy action flick — and it even has Morgan Freeman as the Speaker of the House, which is quite formidable indeed. Butler will save the president on screen on March 22, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
