Rolland Emmerich loves blowing up the White House so much in his movies that he finally made a movie just about blowing up the White House.
It’s going to be a big year for Channing Tatum… and he doesn’t even have to make a movie about strippers to get attention this time around. First, he’s got G.I. Joe Retaliation and now he’s got White House Down, where he’s co-starring with Jamie Foxx… because I guess Morgan Freeman wasn’t available to be the president that week.
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.
