Olympus Has Fallen is here! The new rock-em sock-em action flick opens in theaters everywhere today, March 22nd.  Just in time to make some stimulating seder dinner conversation this Passover weekend. It's directed by Antoine Fuqua, he of Training Day and plenty of other movies that found new and unique ways to kick ass.

Check out the latest trailer above for an extended look at the new movie which stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Rick Yune and Morgan Freeman.

Olympus Has Fallen brings to life a real-world scenario that's not hard to imagine in today's world.

When the White House (Secret Service Code: "Olympus") is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning's inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger crisis.
