‘London Has Fallen’ Moves to Early 2016 In the first half of 2013, two action thrillers dealt with an attack on the White House, yet another case of copycat films dueling at the box office. While both Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen and the Roland Emmerich-directed White House Down managed to turn a profit, the former’s more modest budget qualified it as the undisputed victor. In Olympus Has Fallen, Gerard Butler channeled his inner John McClane as former presidential guard Mike Banning, who must rescue Aaron Eckhart’s President Asher from terrorists.
