'Angel Has Fallen' Trailer: Jada Pinkett Smith Joins Morgan Freeman And Gerard Butler In Franchise's Third Film

The first trailer for the upcoming film Angel Has Fallen premiered online today (May 16) and showcases Morgan Freeman in a great deal of danger.

The trailer opens with a tranquil image of sitting U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Freeman) fishing on a quiet lake alongside Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler). However, their reverie is quickly upended when a series of explosive drones attempt to assassinate the President.

Banning is then wrongfully accused of the assassination attempt and taken into custody. Evading capture, the disgraced agent goes on the run in a quest to clear his name. To do this, Banning must avoid detection by his own agency and outwit the FBI to decipher who tried to kill President Trumbull.

Angel Has Fallen also stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Piper Perabo, Lance Reddick, Nick Nolte, Tim Blake Nelson and Danny Huston. The action film was directed by Ric Roman Waugh, who also crafted the screenplay alongside Matt Cook and Robert Mark Kamen. The film will hit theaters on August 23.

Watch the first trailer below.
