White House Down

The United States finds itself under attack in White House Down, where Jamie Foxx plays the President, and Channing Tatum plays a greasy Channing Tatum in full rescue mode. It’s purely a product of timing, but the symbolism of Foxx playing Django six months before we’ll see him as the Commander-in-Chief is pretty huge. No doubt the deep-thinking Roland Emmerich saw the possibility all along.

It’s also a nice product of timing that Tatum is in the G.I. Joe sequel this weekend at the same time that the other White House under attack movie (Olympus Has Fallen) has already made its box office presence felt. The marketing team must be really happy.

Fortunately for everyone, this trailer more than delineate between White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen. At the very least — you didn’t expect Emmerich’s characters to go stealth mode, did you? Seriously — what doest that guy have against important federal buildings?

Give your ear drums the middle finger and check the trailer out for yourself:

There’s no denying it. This thing might be big and dumb, but the action really does look fantastic.

White House Down is out June 28th.
