Angel Has Fallen (2019 Movie) Official Trailer - Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman.
Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) undergoes training at a military facility in Virginia, owned by his friend and Army Ranger teammate Wade Jennings (Danny Huston), now CEO of private military company Salient Global. He is recommended for the position of Secret Service Director by President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), to replace retiring Director David Gentry (Lance Reddick), but hides the fact that he suffers from migraines and insomnia and takes painkillers to cope with chronic back pain.
While Trumbull is on a private fishing trip at Queen's Lake in Williamsburg, Virginia, a swarm of armed drones attack and overwhelm his protection detail, with only Banning surviving and saving the president. Both men are incapacitated, but Banning recovers while Trumbull is left in a coma. Vice President Martin Kirby (Tim Blake Nelson) is sworn in as acting president. FBI special agent Helen Thompson (Jada Pinkett Smith) is presented with evidence implicating Banning in the attack, after her team locates the van used to transport the drones and find it containing traces of his hair and DNA, leading to his arrest. En route to a detention facility, Banning's transport is ambushed, but he escapes after killing the assailants and unmasking them as mercenaries from Salient Global with whom he partook in the training exercise. Realizing that Jennings has betrayed and framed him, he 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. Banning manages to slip away into the night again, and drives away the next morning in a stolen pickup truck to his father's cabin in the backwoods of White Hall, West Virginia.
