Sometimes, even the most protected places need extra security

MUMBAI: White House is more than a home to the most powerful person in the world – the President of the United States. To the men and women who protect it, it's a fortress. So what happens when the world’s most heavily guarded residence comes under attack? Find out how the Secret Service responds to national security threats in the Indian television premiere of MOVIES NOW Xclusive: Olympus Has Fallenthis Sunday31st August 2014 at 9 PMpresented by Airtel and powered by New Park Avenue Deo and co-powered by Nestle Everyday.

 

When the White House (Secret Service Code: ‘Olympus’) is attacked, it’s up to one ex-Special Forces agent (Gerard Butler) to recapture the White House and save the President. To do so, he must navigate around challenging security protocols that are already in place to protect the White House. To ensure that the film seemed true to life, producer and actor Gerard Butler trained with and consulted ex-special forces and Navy SEALS while filming. Their experiences can be seen throughout the movie.

 

When the White House is first attacked in Olympus Has Fallen, helicopters are seen firing at the building from the grounds itself. This scene was inspired by true events from White House history. In 1974, a stolen Army helicopter landed without authorization on the South Lawn of the White House grounds. Twenty years later, a light plane crashed on the White House grounds, killing the pilot on impact. Following the 2001 attacks, the restricted airspace above the White House was expanded and strictly enforced.

 

To minimize the risks of further terrorist attacks, a script of Olympus Has Fallen was shared with the Pentagon prior to production to review any potential security breaches that they film may contain. This is a standard security procedure that all films depicting White House security, or the assassination of the President, must undertake before filming.

 

This Sunday, don’t miss a North-Korean guerilla army outmaneuver the world’s highest security protocols in the Indian television premiere of the blockbuster Olympus Has Fallen on MOVIES NOW. Catch the giants of Hollywood – Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart and Ashely Benson - as they attempt to re-capture Olympus.

 

Join the battle for the White House this Sunday 31st August at 9pm only on MOVIES NOW!
