It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to display my unyielding love for the violent insanity of the Has Fallen films, so let me reiterate: these movies are totally amoral bloodbaths and I will adore them unto the end of time regardless of how much shame it brings to my family.
Having said that, the first trailer for Angel has Fallen is here and it does not disappoint. Rich analysis to follow, complete with academic citations:
Holy shit. The madcap mindset of these films is so specific, and this one gets into it right of the bat with a “For What it’s Worth” needle drop. Beautiful.
I had always heard this third film would take place on Air Force One. That does not appear to be the case. Instead, we have a film where Banning himself is on the run for attempting to assassinate the president. (He’s innocent, ya jabronis. The president was almost killed with a Star Trek: Beyond drone attack, not a headstab.)
This, for reasons I am all too excited to discover, brings Banning face to face with his survivalist father played by this motherfucker right here:
You ever look upon perfection and just go speechless? Other than this article, that’s exactly where I am at right now. The fact that this trailer is dropping the same day as a John Wick trilogy marathon is just about too much for me to take.
Angel has Fallen will single-handedly destroy the summer August 23.
