When two films go to war

Good ideas are like buses. They can take you to amazing places or leave you in a pile of rubble, wondering where it all went wrong. And yes, they can also come along at exactly the same time.

Take Hollywood for example. This year sees not one, but two, films based around Secret Service agents protecting the President from terrorists. The first, Olympus is Fallen, stars Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart while the second, White House Down, boasts Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. But which will triumph?

We've looked back at other similarly plotted movie showdowns and compared their performances. Plus, we want to know which of the matches you preferred.

Olympus Has Fallen is released on April 17 while White House Down lands on September 6
