OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN
There’s been some decent early reviews for this action thriller which sees Gerard Butler star as a disgraced former Presidential guard who finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack. He then attempts to rescue the President (Aaron Eckhart) from his captors in this movie from the director of Training Day. Co-stars Morgan Freeman.
The team behind the original Evil Dead – including Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell – are back to oversee this highly-anticipated remake of the 1981 cult horror. When five friends discover a book of the dead in a remote cabin, they unwittingly summon soul-possessing demons from the nearby woods in this reportedly scary and gore-filled reimagining – which is also garnering promising early buzz.
