Bad news for 'Point Break': the upcoming remake of Kathryn Bigelow's cult classic will have to hit the waves without Gerard Butler, as the actor has officially dropped out of the project. It's not great news for the production team, but maybe it's good news for Butler, as this might be the best decision he's made in a while.

As we previously reported, 20th Century Fox has plans in the works to remake 'Point Break,' the classic undercover-agent movie that starred Keanu Reeves as he worked to infiltrate a gang of bank robbers/surfers led by Patrick Swayze. But who is the right fit to assume one of these roles, you ask? The answer, according to the studio, is 'Olympus Has Fallen' action star Gerard Butler.

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!

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. If only the execution of this White House home invasion fantasy was half as entertaining as its conception.

'Olympus Has Fallen' Featurette: Full-Tilt Action in the White House

'Olympus Has Fallen' is in the bizarre position of being the first of two "terrorists take over the White House" movies coming out in 2013. We'll have to wait until 'White House Down' arrives in June before we can make any immediate comparisons, but right now, we feel like the one starring Channing Tatum will be better worth our time than the one starring Gerard Butler. Can a new featurette change our minds?

'Movie 43' Red-Band Trailer Just Might Traumatize You

It might not be accurate to call the red-band trailer for 'Movie 43' "short and sweet", because while it is short, there's nothing sweet about it. It's only offers up about one minute of footage from the upcoming raunchy anthology, but it's enough to make you blush, gag or both.
Watch it after the break, knowing full well that it's NSFW.
