Antoine Fuqua's Life in Film: From the Beginning to The Equalizer
Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
Once again, Fuqua stuck to the formula that works for this big-budget action thriller, and with a nearly $100 million gross at the box office, it worked. This time around, Gerard Butler plays the disgraced serviceman (in the form of a presidential guard) reluctantly called back to duty to save the world — or, in this case, the White House and it’s commander-in-chief (Aaron Eckhart). Morgan Freeman and Angela Bassett also star as the Speaker of the House and Secret Service Director, respectively.
