Gerard Butler poses with Navy soldiers during a special screening of his new film Olympus Has Fallen on Saturday (March 16) at Camp Pendleton’s base theater in Oceanside, Calif.
The 43-year-old actor was joined at the screening by his co-stars Aaron Eckhart and Rick Yune, as well as director Antoine Fuqua.
Olympus Has Fallen follows disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) who finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President (Eckhart) from his kidnappers.
“Visited the San Diego Navy Base and the Marines yest. AMAZING! Made me proud to be (almost) an American!” Gerard wrote on Facebook. “My highlight of this journey so far was seeing the Marines’ enjoyment of the movie at Camp Pendleton. Check this out”
