In the film, also starring Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart, a North Korean terrorist group takes over the White House.

Butler said the movie was "ahead of our time, it's really a case of life imitating art."

He added: "It is quite unbelievable word to word what is happening [in North Korea] with what is going on in our movie."
