The first film of this series was Olympus Has Fallen. In this film, Morgan Freeman’s character, Allen Trumbull, is the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States. In the second film, London Has Fallen, Allan Trumbull is the Vice President. In Angel Has Fallen, he is the President.
In Angel Has Fallen, Mike Banning is recommended for the position of the Secret Service director by President Allen Trumbull. He fails to disclose that he suffers from migraines and insomnia and is undergoing treatment for these conditions as well as for recurring back pain. When the President is attacked on a rural fishing trip, leaving him in a coma, Banning is accused of being responsible for the attack.

Even so, the audience score was 94%, and there were some critics who said that this movie was the best of the Fallen series.
Will Angel Has Fallen be coming to Netflix in the future?
If you are interested in Angel Has Fallen, but you do not want to go out to the theaters, will you be able to watch it on Netflix in the future?
Unfortunately, it is extremely unlikely that Angel Has Fallen will ever come to Netflix.
Angel Has Fallen is being distributed by Lionsgate. At present, Lionsgate has a deal with Epix for streaming rights to its films after they finish in theaters. There was a time that Lionsgate and Epix films went to Netflix but that ended in 2015.
As is often the case in the ever-shifting landscape of streaming rights, the deal between Lionsgate and Epix will be ending soon. Yet, this will not make it any more likely that Lionsgate’s movies will come to Netflix. This is because they have signed an exclusive output deal with Hulu and FX for 2020 and 2021.
