London Has Fallen is the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart, (picture Die Hard in the White House without any of the humor and your pretty much there).
Now, a few years later the hotly demanded sequel is here!
Well, I say hotly demanded….
And now the second trailer has dropped and its pretty much what you’d expect, explosions slow motion, bad CGI etc…
I’m not interested in this trailer.
I’m interested in the one that came before it.
The one that was was full of images of London being exploded not only in the wake of the attacks in Tunisia, but in the week of the tenth anniversary of 7/7.
For the unaware, on the 7th of July, a group of suicide bombers attacked the capital, killed 52 people and wounded over 700. An attack that you would think might lead to anyone who’s going to release a trailer of London being blown up might want to not release said trailer on?
I’m still going to see the film, but it’s been pushed back to March which is traditionally a sign that the academy can skip this one.
I just hope it doesn’t get pushed back to July…
