BOOM! Goes The White House (in Film)

For those of you who aren't necessarily as sensitive as we are, seeing The White House — the bastion of American freedom — blown to smithereens onscreen can be a real treat.

However, we want to at least even the playing field a little by pointing out some bafflingly bad American accents perpetrated by thesps from overseas. Europe and Australia may have the best acting academies and such, but not every graduate is as versatile as they should be, starting with a certain Gerard Butler from this past weekend's "Olympus Has Fallen."

And "The Croods" wasn't the only thick-browed example of pre-humanity to do well, as Gerard Butler's "Olympus Has Fallen" also opened strong, bringing in an estimated $30.5 million in its debut.

That left little on the bone for Tina Fey's new comedy "Admission," which bombed out to the tune of only $6.4 million. For a full look at the weekend box office, including the buzzed about limited release "Spring Breakers" and returning champ "Oz the Great and Powerful," head to

Hot People Looking Hot: Gerard Butler Photos

"Madness? THIS. IS. SPARTA!!"

So did Gerard Butler set a new standard for alpha male-ness in Zack Snyder's epic swords-and-sandals man-fest, "300." And every man has been struggling to reach such seething levels of testosterone ever since.

Hollywood hasn't seemed to know what to do with Butler ever since he rocked Frank Miller's violent, bloody world, banishing him to the catacombs of lame romantic comedies and generic action flicks. It's a good thing he's good-lookin', eh? Check out our collection of pics of the "Olympus Has Fallen" star in movies and on the red carpet.
