Warner Bros. have been chasing Marvel's lead for a while now, and though they had great success with Batman, and more recently with 'Man of Steel,' they are seemingly jealous of 'The Avengers.' Well, it looks like they'll finally assemble their Justice League. But only in LEGO form.
'White House Down' has the disadvantage of being the second 'Die Hard'-in-the-White-House movie of 2013 after 'Olympus Has Fallen,' and the advantage of being superior to its predecessor in every conceivable way. It's better directed, better written, and better acted. The action is better, with more impressive special effects; the production design is better, with a much more convincing replica of the White House; the camerawork is better; with clear, lucid images. Where 'Olympus Has Fallen' was grim and stern, 'White House Down' actually embraces the silliness of its premise. It's more exciting and more faithful to the 'Die Hard' formula. This is still basically a shameless ripoff popcorn movie, but it's a shameless ripoff popcorn movie popped to near-perfection.
If 'White House Down,' the upcoming action movie where Channing Tatum and The President (Jamie Foxx) take down terrorists in the White House, does well at the box office, there's no way they're only making one of them.
Few summer movies look as fun as 'White House Down.' After getting to see eight minutes of footage during a special presentation, hosted by director Roland Emmerich and stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, we see this as a nice change of pace from all the superhero and sci-fi offerings of late. Now the latest clip from the film only makes its charm and sense of humor stand out more from the familiar "Die Hard in the White House!" formula.
The President of the United States must have a very safe car. More "death proof" than Kurt Russell's car in 'Death Proof' it seems, as the makers of 'White House Down' found out while working on the movie. This new featurette gives a spotlight to the president's car (nicknamed "The Beast") and what it goes through in the movie.
With 'Olympus Has Fallen' about to cross the $100 million mark at the box office, you'd think we'd be done with White House siege movies for a little while...but then the trailer for 'White House Down' had to rear its head and get us excited all over again. Now, a new poster has arrived it all-but-promises that this will be the buddy cop action movie of the year.
We haven't received an update on 'Magic Mike 2' in quite some time. The last significant piece of 'Magic Mike 2' news came in September, when the rumor broke that Channing Tatum might actually make his directorial debut on the project, said to be a road trip movie. Today, however, we learn that 'Magic Mike 2' is very much alive and dancing; jump after the break to find out where the film stands.
