My first Trailer Tuesday is Olympus Has Fallen. Gerard Butler as a secret service agent going full “McClane” following an attack on the White House. In theaters March 22nd.
I can almost hear them pitching this to the studio. “It’s essentially Die Hard….but in the White House.” It looks like someone played the Whiskey Hotel level of Modern Warfare 2 and then opened up Final Draft.
But I’ll still see it. I’m a sucker for over the top action movies. My only hope is that the movie sees some extra time in post-production. The special effects look pretty atrocious in the trailer.
I have a lot of things planned for the blog’s inaugural week (and the weeks to come). Check back for posts about Netflix’s assault on the television industry, my Oscar picks/commentary, the most depressing Valentine’s Day double feature and more.
