The full-length trailer for upcoming actioner London Has Fallen has arrived, and thankfully it showcases all the over-the-top excess we hoped it would.

The follow-up to the ridiculous-yet-very-entertaining Olympus Has Fallen, the sequel sees Gerard Butler return as one-man wrecking crew Mike Banning.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.

Also starring the likes of Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and Angela Bassett, London Has Fallen hits cinemas on March 5, 2016.

And here’s the new trailer:
