‘Olympus Has Fallen 2′? ‘London Has Fallen’ Will, Yes, Destroy London

Film District
Film District

In this year's bizarre battle of the White House-set invasion action movies, 'Olympus Has Fallen' was the surprise box office champion, handily outgrossing the far glossier 'White House Down.' And you know what that means: it's time for 'Olympus Has Fallen 2.' But where do you go when your first film already destroyed the home of the President of the United States? You go wreck London, of course!

FilmDistrict

In the weeks and months after 9/11, it was reported that the United States military was recruiting Hollywood screenwriters to help predict potential follow-up attacks. The new thriller 'Olympus Has Fallen' plays like the craziest, silliest entry from that post-9/11 doomsday scenario slush file -- a passionately loony blend of 'Die Hard' cliches and feverish right wing paranoia.
