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

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
