‘White House Down’ Gets A Release Date Bump
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.
Variety reports that Sony Pictures has shifted the thriller 'White House Down' from it's cozy November 1, 2013 release date to June 28, 2013. What makes this move a bit unique is that rather than tucking it away at some random point in the fall, Sony wants to throw this out in the middle of the summer season. It'll be in competition that weekend against the Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson comedy 'The Internship' and the comic book adaptation 'R.I.P.D' starring Ryan Reynolds. Well, at least now we have the pick of the movie litter than weekend.
For those of you who don't know, and if so shame on you, 'White House Down' centers on a secret agent (Channing Tatum) who must protect the president (Jamie Foxx) at all costs when terrorists storm none other than the White House. A crazy action thriller starring these two actors and directed by Roland Emmerich? It's going to be filled with all sorts of cheesy action goodness, and we can't wait to see it.
