Here's your first look at "Olympus Has Fallen," the upcoming action thriller that combines "Die Hard" and "In the Line of Fire" together with the charisma of star Gerard Butler.

Butler, who scuffled in 2012 with films like "Chasing Mavericks" and "Playing the Field," looks to return with a vengeance in "Olympus Has Fallen," which comes from director Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day"). The film focuses on a former Secret Service agent (Butler) who must save the president (Aaron Eckhart) after the White House is overrun with terrorists. Morgan Freeman and Angela Bassett co-star as government officials trying to keep the country running.

The film's first trailer, released in January, was a hit with many thanks to its action-packed insanity. Check out the full clip above; new stills from the film can be found in the gallery below.

"Olympus Has Fallen" is out in theaters on March 22.
