The Capital gets decimated in the new trailer for London Has Fallen

Londoners look away now.

With dramatic anti-terrorist attack drills scaring the bejesus out of commuters in the capital this week, we’re not sure whether the timing of this debut trailer for London Has Fallen - the disaster-filled sequel to Olympus Has Fallen – is terrible or terrific. Probably the latter if we were a studio marketing exec.

Either way, there’s a hell of a lot going on: Queen’s Guards lay down a hailstorm of gunfire into fleeing tourists. A cathedral is reduced to dusty smithereens. One major bridge gets blown up (nightmare if you’re commuting home), police cars go flying, and Gerard Butler is hanging out of a car firing a handgun.

The film sees Butler’s returning secret service agent in the capital to attend the British Prime Minister's funeral, when he gets wind of a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders and wipe out all major landmarks - and it's fair to say he’s got a job on.

Tinged with a wiry, unnerving soundtrack, it’s put us on edge. Like we weren’t already.

London Has Fallen is released early 2016
