Roland Emmerich's new film, White House Down, is an action thriller starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The director previously made the disaster film Day After Tomorrow, sci-fi spectacular Independence Day and the prehistoric fantasy 10,000 BC.
In White House Down, 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.
How different is this film from Olympus Has Fallen, which also dealt with a terrorist attack on the White House, and released just a week ago? Let's wait and see.
White House Down releases in cinemas on June 28, 2013.
