Scottish actor is joined by Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart and Angela Bassett on the red, white and blue carpet to celebrate the sequel to 2013’s hit “Olympus Has Fallen”

Scottish actor Gerard Butler appeared very patriotic when he posed alongside members of the Queen’s Guard in front of a backdrop of Union Jack flags on Tuesday night.

More commonly seen standing stone-still outside Buckingham Palace rather than at Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome, the traditional mascots were part of the British-themed premiere for Butler’s latest action movie, “London Has Fallen.”

Joining Butler on the red, white and blue carpet were co-stars Morgan FreemanAaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett (with Courtney B. Vance) and Radha Mitchell.

“Olympus Has Fallen” grossed $161 millon worldwide, which was enough to justify a sequel.

Butler also currently stars in “Gods of Egypt,” which had a disappointing box office opening last weekend.
