'Olympus Has Fallen' is not alone. Hollywood has a knack for making films with very similar subject matter within a short space of time. In a couple of months, the White House-based security breach thriller will be joined by another White House-based security breach thriller called 'White House Down'. The former is directed by 'Training Day's Antoine Fuqua and features Aaron Eckhart as the Pres and Gerard Butler as the only man who can save him, damnit. The latter, meanwhile, from disaster film veteran Roland Emmerich, features Jamie Foxx as the leader of the free world, and Channing Tatum as the only man who can save him. Damnit.
