Olympus Has Fallen opens in theaters today, March 22nd. And if you need any proof that fans are excited about the Gerard Butler action flick, look no further than the artwork contained in the gallery below.

These original movie posters, inspired by the film, are some of our favorite submissions to the Olympus Has Fallen artwork contest. The contest is still open – and you can enter here!

Olympus Has Fallen, which opens today March 22nd and stars Butler, also features a bevy of leading actors, including Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Ashley Judd, Dylan McDermott and Rick Yune, brings to life a real-world scenario that’s not hard to imagine in today’s world.

When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger crisis.
