The first trailer for the upcoming White House Down was weirdly serious but it feels like this new trailer is the true tone of the movie, full of over the top action and a very buddy cop vibe between Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. Tatum is in Washington for a job interview for the Secret Service that doesn’t go very well but he and his daughter are in the White House when it’s taken over by unknown forces. Tatum’s daughter is taken hostage but he manages to rescue the President and the two try to get out and/or stop the take over and save the day. The bar was raised extremely high by Olympus Has Fallen in this weird battle of “Die Hard in the White House” movies this year but it looks like from this new trailer that WHD might have a shot at least matching Olympus in terms of fun action. Check out the trailer below and the movie is out June 28th.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
