'White House Down' Trailer: Channing Tatum Plays Hero to Jamie Foxx's President (Video)
The Roland Emmerich-directed drama hits theaters June 28.
Days after Olympus Has Fallen over-performed at the box office, grossing $30.5 million in its opening weekend, Columbia Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for its similarly patriotic pic, White House Down.
As a paramilitary group attacks the nation’s capital, Channing Tatum – as a Secret Service agent – must protect Jamie Foxx’s President of the United States. In the newly released preview, the media is front and center as news anchors narrate the crippling destruction facing Washington, D.C., and, more specifically, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Combine that with a foreboding quote from Abraham Lincoln, and the drama heats up yet another notch.
The action thriller is being compared to the likes of Die Hard, with Independence Day and 2012 helmer Roland Emmerich directing. Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins and Jason Clarke also star.
Watch the first full-length trailer below. White House Down is slated to hit theaters on June 28, 2013.
