London Has Fallen arrived on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital platforms this month. To mark the release, Lionsgate Home Entertainment built an urban assault course on the South Bank of the River Thames to give members of the public the chance to be their own action hero.
The temperature gauge reads 30 degrees. But that hasn’t stopped Londoners becoming their own action heroes as Lionsgate Home Entertainment marks the release of London Has Fallen, the Gerard Butler-starring sequel to Olympus Has Fallen.
In partnership with Lionsgate Home Entertainment, obstacle course race experts Urban Attack constructed the imposing course on Riverside Slice in the shadow of the OXO Tower. Members of the public competed on the course to see if they had what it took to emulate London Has Fallen’s resident hard man Mike Banning. Some well-known faces, including Sam Callahan and Chloe Paige (X Factor) and Love Island’s Chris Baxter also took part whilst YouTube sensation Tobiias and his unwitting housemates took on former SAS trooper, ITV fitness trainer and Urban Attack’s owner Rob Edmond… and lost.
Following the global success of Olympus Has Fallen, London Has Fallen sees Presidential bodyguard Mike Banning return, this time bringing his presidential bromance with Aaron Eckhart’s President Asher to Blighty as they take on a new threat that arises from a State funeral.
Following an outstanding performance at the box office, London Has Fallen arrived on Blu-ray and DVD yesterday, reuniting Butler and Eckhart with Angela Bassett and Morgan Freeman for an explosive, fun-filled adrenaline ride – the perfect antidote to whatever the weather throws at you!
