Angel Has Fallen (2019 Movie) Official Trailer - Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman.
Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) undergoes training at the Salient Global private military facility, owned by his friend Wade Jennings (Danny Huston), a former fellow Army Ranger. Banning is recommended for the position of Secret Service Director by Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), President of the United States, to replace retiring Director David Gentry (Lance Reddick). Banning hides the fact that he suffers from migraines and insomnia and takes painkillers to cope with chronic back pain. While the president is on a private fishing trip, a swarm of armed drones attacks his protection detail with only Banning surviving the deadly assault and saving the President. Both men are incapacitated, but Banning recovers while Trumbull is left in a coma. FBI Special Agent Helen Thompson (Jada Pinkett Smith) is presented with evidence that Banning may be responsible for the attack after the FBI locates the van used to transport the drones and which contains traces of Banning's hair and DNA, leading to his arrest. En route to a detention facility, Banning's transport is ambushed. He escapes after killing the assailants, revealed to be mercenaries of Salient Global with whom he partook in a training exercise. Banning comes to the realization that Jennings has betrayed and framed him for the assassination attempt. Banning calls his wife Leah (Piper Perabo), letting her know he is alive and determined to expose the real perpetrator. The call alerts Thompson to Banning's location leading to a car chase by numerous police officers. However, Banning manages to escape to his father's cabin in the backwoods of West Virginia.
