A devoted Secret Service agent is on the run after being framed in an assassination attempt against the president in the upcoming film, Angel Has Fallen.
In a new trailer for the action film, Gerard Butler plays Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent learning he had just received a promotion by the president (Morgan Freeman) during a fishing trip.
But the peaceful day is cut short after a flock of drones swarm in and attack, destroying everything in it’s path.
Mike manages to save the Commander In Chief by diving deep into the lake, yet when he awakens handcuffed to his hospital bed, learns he had just been charged with attempting to murder the president.
‘Can’t you see that I’m being set up?’ Mike insists angrily as he’s transported in shackles.
Just as he makes his case, the car slams headfirst into a tree.
Mike maintains his innocence when he manages to get in touch with his family over the phone.
‘There’s somebody else behind this, it wasn’t me!’ Mike presses, after his loved ones him they have been receiving death threats.
The loyal agent believes the president isn’t out of the woods just yet, and promises he won’t stop until his name has been cleared.
‘The president’s not safe,’ Mike says. ‘They’re going to try and finish the job. I’m not going to stop until I prove who did this.’
Mike is then met with a man aiming his gun directly at him as he ventures through the woods.
‘How did you find me?’ the man angrily demands, his hands shaking as he holds the weapon.
‘I run security for the president, how you think, dad?’ Mike asks. ‘I need your help,’ he continues, as his father sets down the gun.
In the next scene, the authorities are shown coming in on Mike.
‘We’ve got to get out of here!’ Mike whispers to his father.
‘I know,’ his dad says, before detonating a bomb.
‘You can’t hide from us, Banning,’ a man says to Mike over the phone.
‘Don’t worry about finding me, I’ll find you,’ Mike assures coolly.
Mike manages to track down the president, who also appears to be running for his own life.
‘Listen to me, we’re going to make a move, you know people are going to fall. But not you,’ he tells the president.
Mike stays true to his commitment to protecting the president, and guards the commander in chief against gunshots and explosions in the next scene.
Angel Has Fallen also stars Piper Perabo, Lance Reddick, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
The action film is set to be released on August 23, 2019.
