Watch Gerard Butler And Morgan Freeman Talk Olympus Has Fallen In New Featurette

This weekend has to be seen as the most perfect one in existence for the folks behind the new action thriller Olympus Has Fallen. Not only are we about to enter President's Day weekend, which is perfect for a movie about the commander-in-chief, but A Good Day To Die Hard is now in theaters, which is ideal for a project that was sold being described as "Die Hard in the White House." So it's only fitting that we would get a brand new featurette that goes behind the scenes of the new film.

The preview, which features interviews with stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman, isn't the longest clip you've ever seen - clocking in under two minutes, but it does succeed in giving audiences a better understanding of what the movie's about and the characters in play. Check it out below, courtesy of Yahoo!

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), Olympus Has Fallen centers on a former, disgraced member of the secret service named Mike Banning (Butler) who suddenly finds himself as the hero the entire nation is counting on in its most desperate time of need. When the president (Eckhart) is taken hostage in the White House, Banning learns that he is the only one that has a chance of successfully extricating the country's leader and take out the bad guys. Dylan McDermott, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster and Angela Bassett co-star in the film, which will be in theaters on March 22nd. Head over to our Blend Film Database to see more from the movie.
