    Looks packed with action and believable, which is important. Good luck Gerry, you lug. Looks like you’ve another hit on your hands.

    Nice trailer but would like to see more of the Butler in other versions, hopefully.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Well when you do see him he’s doing something dynamic!

  • Sonia

    Oh yeah of course. But this is the first teaser trailer so it’s very short, as expected. Looking forward to seeing more of him over the next few months.

  • Nicole

    Congratulations to the first trailer! Good luck to you, Gerry!

  • ValerieSimoes

    Love love

    Gerry has a lot riding on this. It’s his comeback film after all, huh? Never thought I’d be saying that! At least it will be with something familiar so that’s a huge plus for him.

    Best thing about it so far is the ‘bad guy’ appears to be Caucasian.

    Maybe they are bitter Scottish revolutionaries who are fighting for a free Scotland?

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Interesting take! Yet don’t the two need each other to co-exist? Don’t we all by now? The flattening of the world has forced that it seems to me.

    Like how they captured that screen-cap, huh? Probably put him on bed rest for a week after. Kidding!!

    I am so looking forward to this movie and finally seeing the trailer makes it much more real, it is happening.

    One thing I have to say though, and I am sorry to ruin the fun for some of you, but there is one thing that really annoyed me.
    This trailer has been shared by many people which it is awesome, but what is Gerry doing?
    Where is he in all this?

    He has a Twitter account and a Facebook verified page, where is his input?
    I would expect he would be the first to post this teaser, no such thing.
    Is he in charge of his social media accounts?
    If not he is wasting money on the wrong people.
    If yes I think it’s time to take a break from sun/sea/beach/squeezing boobies and use his hands to remind the world that checking melons is not the only talent he wants to be remember for.

  • Gossipbasher

    He has people doing the posting for him so it’s up to them to do their job.

    I agree with you about his wasting money on the wrong people.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    That all might happen closer to the release. Then again he needs to ‘come out’ and do some public events again if you ask me. Nothing too big, just be seen supporting either another movie or at some gala for a charity. His success brings an obligation to make this world a better place for starters, and he knows how. He was raised to give back.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    He’s wasting money IMO on his publicist. I can do a better job, and it’s not my job.

  • โœจ๐Ÿ’™โœจLillyโœจ๐Ÿ’™โœจ

    That’s what I thought too but I am starting to wonder.
    I might consider sending him my cv and a nice cover letter, which offers a 10% discount for my services whatever he is paying those slackers.

    In the meantime talking about it (at other places than this toilet… sorry) is a good idea. IMDb has a Gerard Butler message board. London Has Fallen has its own page like all his other films. Speak up! Speak up!

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I think Butler does his own postings on his social media accounts, which is why they’re lacking for now. He’s not that into it, which is sad, but feel they’ll pick up. I say he does it himself because he likes control and won’t hand over passwords IMO.

  • Sonia

    I do agree with you but I have to say, for now, it’s SO NICE to see a Gerard Butler headline that doesn’t involve the words ‘packs on the PDA’, ‘passionate kiss’ (especially when there’s no passion involved) or (okay, I’m gonna go there) ‘girlfriend Morgan Brown’. A headline about his professional life, especially on a gossip site, is enough for me for now, the social media updates would be a big bonus, of course.

    That I have done, it took me two seconds to share it everywhere I could.

    Trailer looks good. This was a good sequel. Looks like it could stand alone without the first movie too. Those are usually the best sequels.

    See how easy it is to turn things around? Imagine where a person would be if they just stayed on this course? Just saying.

    i wonder if he even remembers it at this point….

    Lazy. *Epic ROLLSEYES* He’s got a Facebook page of alot. hm.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Something tells me he does. He’s a photographic memory so might he just flip back and see himself logging on?

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    That much I think he can do. He’s FB savvy methinks. I’m not, not that you asked. It intimates me like my smart phone, which is way smarter than me. Twitter is easy enough to reset passwords if one forgets them. Other than that, what else?

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    A tyke with a Kiddie Kindle could better promote Butler than his publicist does.

  • MJ

    Please do… and then maybe someone who knows what they are doing can change those awful page banners on both accounts (along with that old headshot of him) ASAP!! LOL! ;-)

    He looks like someone’s dad… standing in a treehouse, looking out into space (in those page banners).

    All those hot, manly professional photos of him and that’s what they go with… *face palm*

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    Already has a 100 likes on Facebook…looks like GB fans the world over agree too.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    In all honesty I don’t feel he wants that “course” because of many reasons. I feel he took his “break” because he saw how hard he worked to get where he was, how fragile it was, how hard the climb was, but mostly how a few things can fray your best intentions, and scared himself IMO. Saying that, I respect how he has this paced going forward. I feel he’s trying to balance work with liberty, and I respect that. I just wished I respected his choice better, and nothing, not nipping and tucking, not Vera Wang or Chanel can upgrade a antique all-terrain Chevy Bronco into a effortlessly classic Volvo.

  • Sonia

    Oops. Looks like it might not have been the best time to release this teaser trailer. Read some comments saying (in a nutshell) it’s in bad taste as it’s the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 London bombings in a few days so perhaps they could have timed this a bit better. Especially since it’s Lionsgate UK that posted the trailer.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Which Facebook profile/page is that? International? Personal? Local? Link me. I’ll “like” it too as well as others.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    It’s.a.trailer. A trailer. A trailer for a film coming out in 2016!

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Hey, he was a dad. He was Frosty from Chasing Mavericks. Have you even seen it?

    I adore that photo as does he. It’s one of my favorites because he sees beyond. Leaning forward both palms secured and planted full of hope and promise. Beyond the horizon while charting his future plans for the day, week, year.

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    I meant, making PR about work and accomplishments. He knows how to get busy and get to work when he “feels” its productive…Just don’t let depressive thoughts distort or demotivate him to do crazy things that portray him in a less than professional stature.

  • Sonia

    Yes but I can see how the timing could upset some people. Imagine reading articles about London being blown up just a few days before such an important anniversary. I don’t know what day/date it is half the time so didn’t realise it until I read those comments.

  • https://twitter.com/pamela_swain Pamela

    This article “look up at the top”. My dear, he is trending on Facebook.

    If someone tweets anything, hashtag Gerry, Morgan Freeman, and Aaron Eckhart if you can fit them. Oh and London has fallen.

    Better yet, hashtag Facebook too.
