Quite frankly, I thought it looked like a poster made at a convention or something considering filming hasn't started. Rolling Eyes

Here's what that article says:


Alex Billington from FirstShowing is in Cannes right now and took some photos of some of the banners advertising coming attractions and films for “sale” at the film market. He got some great shots of promo banners for films like Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, One Shot (Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher movie with Tom Cruise), Brian DePalma’s Passion with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace as well as a little movie called White House Taken starring one Gerard Butler.

While it’s exciting to see his face on a film poster (that isn’t the photoshopped mess of Playing the Field), this one is definitely some sort of photoshop composite since Butler hasn’t been that clean shaven in over two years. (He looks a little like Sean Connery.) All of that aside, it is exciting that the filmmakers are shopping the movie. White House Taken, the new title for the film formerly known as Olympus Has Fallen is set to roll before the cameras next month down in Louisiana with Antoine Fuqua at the helm. Up til now that’s only been an assumption. Since his name is on the banner, I’m thinking he’s signed on the dotted line. (It’s been since last December that Butler was anywhere near a film set and frankly, I’m getting a tad antsy.)

There’s a lot of speculation on the new title, White House Taken and the fact that Roland Emmerich is getting ready to make a movie called White House Down with Channing Tatum. Setting aside the fact that Olympus Has Fallen is just more interesting in general, in my opinion, the move was done to force the latter film to change its title since the two have similar scenarios but Antoine Fuqua’s film should be out of the gate first. Just a theory.

Great. There are going to be a bunch of White House infiltration movies. I remember when there were a bunch of deep sea creature movies like The Abyss and Leviathan and a few more, all hitting the theaters within a month. Ugh! It's like there's only one idea floating around Hollywood at a time, and everyone grabs onto it.

All the recent books must be crappy. They're resorting to 50-year-old comics to make new movies nowadays. And pregnancy guides.
Blah

Hollywood needs more zombie movies.

I outgrew zombie shows. And slapsticks.
