Presidents and Prime Ministers in equal danger in London Has Fallen trailer

The first trailer for London Has Fallen, the sequel to 2013's unexpected action hit Olympus Has Fallen, promises all of the same beats as the original - with one significant change. This time, it's the British capital that's under attack. The title kind of gives that bit away.

Babak Najafi replaces Antoine Fuqua in the director's chair, unveiling a similar penchant for endless explosions, destruction and general chaos when the British prime minister's funeral is disrupted by a terrorist attack. Gerard Butler returns as agent Mike Banning alongside Aaron Eckhart as the President of the United States, who becomes embroiled in the plot when he's captured by the extremists. What do they want? Only to wipe out all the world's leaders.

Back to deliver some wizened dialogue is Morgan Freeman as the Speaker of the House, in addition to Radha Mitchell, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo, who all reprise their governmental roles from the first flick. London Has Fallen opens in the US and UK on March 4, 2016.
