  •  'White House Down' (11+ / 0-)

    Here's the teaser trailer for 'White House Down,' which stars Channing Tatum & Jamie Foxx. If the films seems familiar, that's because it was one of two competing "Die Hard in the White House" films (the other being the just released 'Olympus Has Fallen').

    The one question I have after watching the teaser is, why is a movie "from the director of '2012' and 'The Day After Tomorrow'" supposed to be a selling point?

    [In comparison to 'Olympus Has Fallen'] Sony Pictures is hoping it’s more Armageddon than Deep Impact, though, with a bigger scale, bigger stars and bigger director in serial White House destroyer Roland Emmerich. The script, by James Vanderbilt, went from purchase to shooting in a matter of months and in the first trailer, you get a sense why it was such a hot property. White House Down looks like it has the potential to be a quintessential big-budget summer action movie.

    Co-starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, Lance Reddick and Joey King, the film opens June 28.
