'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.
Even with Jamie Foxx's busy year starring in everything from 'White House Down' to 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' we had been excited to see the 'Django Unchained' star return to TV by writing, directing and producing a horror anthology series for Syfy this fall. Now, scheduling conflicts have forced Foxx to postpone the project, potentially moving it to 2014 or beyond.
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.

We’ve seen Jamie Foxx’s wild getup as Electro in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' but what does the actor have to say about that elaborate costume and taking part in the Marvel character’s legacy? Foxx revealed some tidbits on Marc Webb's Spidey follow-up.
Plus: did the actor just drop big San Diego Comic-Con bombshell?
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.
When the White House is under attack, a Secret Service hopeful must get the President to safety before the terrorists find him.
With all the snapshots from the set and promotional material already released for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' chances are we'll get to see all there is before the film hits theaters on May 2, 2014. Just the other day, Marc Webb gave us our first look at Jamie Foxx's Max Dillon, and prior to that we saw his transformation into the supervillain Electro. Now, even more behind-the-scenes photos have surfaced. Take a look!
Last week, we got our first unofficial look at Jamie Foxx in full makeup as the villainous Electro in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2.'
