Trailer: 'Olympus Has Fallen' and Only Gerard Butler Can Get It Up

Hey guys, remember the movie "Air Force One," where terrorists kidnapped the president and he had to kick their asses to show that America is still number one? Well, imagine if that movie had combined with "Die Hard" and been set inside the White House rather than on an airplane, and you've pretty much just seen the entire new trailer for "Olympus Has Fallen."

But hey, at least this one has Morgan Freeman in it. That's got to be worth something, right?

Unfortunately, it also has Gerard Butler, who plays a disgraced Secret Service guy who is still trying to live down that one time when he accidentally killed the First Lady. Oops! Luckily for him — and unluckily for the rest of the free world, as well as President Aaron Eckhart — he gets the chance to redeem himself when the White House is overrun by terrorists bent on blowing up Earth. Or something.

"With all due respect," Butler intones gravely, "I'm the best hope you've got." Which makes sense, because as this trailer from Apple Trailers shows, "Olympus Has Fallen" is the best chance we've got to relive literally every single lame action movie cliche of the past half century.

Check it out, but remember: No matter how much it may seem like it, this actually isn't a Funny or Die parody.
