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.
White House Down
When the White House is under attack, a Secret Service hopeful must get the President to safety before the terrorists find him.
Every so often, two seemingly identical films from different studios and creative teams arrive at the exact same time, prompting mass confusion, hysteria and internet articles obsessively comparing the two of them
Although the first ‘White House Down’ trailer hit tonight, we already got a look at the footage…well, us and two small movie theater-filled audiences. Director Roland Emmerich brought along Jamie Foxx to the Union Square AMC theater in NYC for the big reveal of the trailer, while Channing Tatum wa
'White House Down' may look a little familiar -- it is the second "'Die Hard' in the White House" movie of 2013 -- but it's also the bigger budget summer blockbuster version. Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx star in this Roland Emmerich summer extravaganza, and they waited until just after 'Olympus has Fallen' was released to debut their trailer.
There obviously must be something about Roland Emmerich's 'White House Down' that Sony Pictures loves so much, or else they wouldn't have shifted it's release date like they did today. Hey, there's nothing wrong with being confident enough to go against some of the bigger movies of the year.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, despite all of the successful movies she's been in and the long career she's had, always seems to be a surprise announcement when she's cast in movies. Not because she shouldn't be in them, but because she doesn't seem to be in enough of them. Now her fans have one more reason to go to the theater with this recent casting announcement.
Channing Tatum could have gone either way. After 2009's 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra' it felt like Hollywood was trying too hard to make him a star, and movies like 2011's 'The Eagle' could have been his future. But earlier this year he had back-to-back hits with 'The Vow' and '21 Jump Street.' And now he's being offered the lead in the upcoming blockbuster 'White House Down.'
Roland Emmerich stepped outside of his blockbuster box with 2011’s ‘Anonymous,’ proving to the world he was capable of directing a film where gun-toting characters raced to prevent the end of the world. But this departure appears to have been short-lived, as the ‘Day After Tomorrow’ director plans to run right back to the action-thriller genre.
