Get an exclusive first look at the new film Angel Has Fallen before its wide release on August 23 at a private screening open to Smithsonian Associates members at an Advocate level and above.

When there is an assassination attempt on President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), his trusted confidant, Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. After escaping from capture, he becomes a man on the run and must evade his own agency and outsmart the FBI in order to find the real threat to the president. Desperate to uncover the truth, Banning turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm, and save the country from imminent danger.

Following the screening, hear from filmmaker Ric Roman Waugh, who co-wrote and directed the thriller, along with its technical advisor Mickey M. Nelson, a 28-year veteran of the Secret Service.
