‘m pretty sure we are among friends when we reveal we thought Olympus Has Fallen was a slice of thoroughly entertaining tosh.

Which is why, when we heard the follow-up was relocating the action to London, we were sold.

Well, the first teaser trailer for London Has Fallen has now hit – and we like it.

It’s pretty brief, but still enough time to see plenty of the capital’s landmarks go up in smoke, and enough to get us looking forward to the early 2016 release.

Here’s the film’s synopsis in case you want it:

The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable secret service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
