When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President and avert an even bigger crisis. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) directs an all-star cast featuring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Ashley Judd and Rick Yune.
I am especially excited to see my girl Angela Bassett act as head of the Secret Service, a role typically played by a male. As we all know about Angela she always brings the goods! Lynne Jacobs is the steely, strict, and tough director of the Secret Service. Excellent at her job, she’s known for always having everything under control. After terrorists take control of the White House, she’s a vital part of the security team working feverishly to save the president and her country during the crisis.
