Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has released the following synopsis for ‘London Has Fallen,’ which was written by Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt, Christian Gudegast and Chad St. John:
When the British Prime Minster dies unexpectedly, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Butler) knows it is his duty to prep with Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs (Bassett) for them to accompany U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Eckhart) to the state funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. With every powerful world leader set to attend, the funeral should be the most protected event on Earth. Yet within moments of arriving, heads of government are assassinated and London landmarks are attacked. Asher, Banning and Jacobs are ambushed and retreat amidst a hail of gunfire and explosives. The devastated British capital goes into lockdown. Banning will stop at nothing to secure Asher’s safe return home.
Back at the White House, Vice President Allan Trumbull (Freeman) races against time brainstorming with top advisors in the Situation Room to get those trapped in London a lifeline of support and a way out. Outnumbered and outgunned, Banning reaches out for help to an English MI6 agent (Riley), who rightly trusts no one. Failure is not an option as they attempt to stop the criminals from carrying out the final phase of their revenge plan.
The action sequel’s Blu-ray and Digital HD versions also include exclusive bonus features, including ‘The Making of London Has Fallen,’ which offers an inside look at the massive undertaking of shooting such a large-scale film in London. The feature includes interviews with the cast and crew, and also shows the unique challenges they encountered on-set, Najafi’s directorial process and the cast’s inspiration for their characterizations. The thriller’s home release also includes the feature ‘Guns, Knives & Explosives,’ which delves into Butler’s iconic character of Mike Banning, and the extensive training and preparation the actor needed to play a Secret Service agent.
