Where Should Mike Banning Destroy Next?

Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen were both hugely enjoyable old-school action movies and Gerard Butler’s Mike Banning is one of the few action hero characters left in modern action cinema.

I don’t want to see the series end with London Has Fallen and personally want it to go on for at least one more movie.

A few people have suggested Paris Has Fallen next but I think that’s a bit too close to home with recent events and people aren’t going to want to rush to see that in the movies when frankly it’s on the news.

 

I like the sound of Berlin Has Fallen; someone said to me about the idea of neo-Nazis as the villains and I think that could work or just make up some bad guys to avoid offending someone. The best action movies like Commando, etc. completely made places up and avoided upsetting international relations.

Although, everyone knows that every series has to end up in space at some point so I say Mars Has Fallen. You know you’d watch it… although then it might piss off some Martians and we’d have a whole interstellar war which would suck…

Olympus Has Fallen made $161,025,640 at the international box office on a $70 million budget and London Has Fallen made $195,725,584 on a $60 million budget world so it was a rare case of a sequel surpassing the original which means that we simply NEED a part 3.

So come on Hollywood! Give me a third ‘Has Fallen’ movie as I want more Mike Banning.

Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
