The latest trailer for Roland Emmerich's action movie White House Down includes a lot more action, fun character interaction, and as you'd expect from Emmerich, the destruction of famous Washington DC landmarks. I'm convinced that Emmerich picks out a part of the world he wants to destroy, and then builds a story around it. He doesn't make the best movies or tell the greatest stories, but they are big crazy CGI filled adventures that people watch, and they make money. That being said White House Down does look like it could be one of his better, more entertaining movies.
Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it’s up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.
The film also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, and James Woods. It's set to hit theaters on June 28th, 2013. Check out the latest trailer!
