Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal are in these first pics from White House Down

Nov. 5, 2012by: Niki Stephens

What's not to like about WHITE HOUSE DOWN? I think the title alone makes it sort of awesome.

I'll be honest-- at first I was terribly skeptical. I was wondering what kind of epically, awfully good film this would be. Then after casting Channing Tatum in a Roland Emmerich film, things start to look up. Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins, and Jason Clarke board, and the script comes straight from James Vanderbilt (ZODIAC).

The first pics from Entertainment Weekly have come out, and they showcase the badass action stylings of Tatum, hot Gyllenhaal, and Obama-esque Foxx. The plot centers on, "John Cale (Tatum), an aspiring Secret Service agent, wind up protecting the Commander-in-Chief (Foxx) when the White House is invaded by a paramilitary group."

Speaking of Obama-esque, Foxx said this about his character, There will be moments in the movie the speeches, stuff like that where [Obama] will know were doing a nod to him But hopefully hell understand that my character is definitely not him.

Take a look at the pics below.

About time a movie like Die Hard (the first one), Airforce One and Under Seige (the first one one) returns to the big screen.

First pic: Looks like he's wearing his working clothes from magic mike...
I liked him in "21 Jump street" but he has not the look/presence for serious drama....

Call me crazy, but I'm kinda looking forward to this. This looks like a nice throwback to all those "hostile takeover" action movies from the 90's. Channing Tatum managed not to suck in 2012 (i.e. Haywire, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike. I still feel the scaled-down scope might be beneficial, as it just might force Emmerich to reel it back.

Is the from The Onion?

When Channing Tatum is the best part of the breakdown something is massively wrong. The premise is outright retarded. Jamie fucking Foxxxxx as some fucked up obama homage directed by a guy who makes Michael Bay look like Faulkner and just when you think this big budget couldn't go to any better use it's topped off with that fucking mongoloid Maggie Pancakeface? Everyone who worked on this movie should be fired out of a cannon into the sun.
