Get your first look at Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum in Roland Emmerich's White House Down

09.27.2012

Production is currently underway on director Roland "I-love-to-destory-the-world" Emmerich's latest opus, WHITE HOUSE DOWN and Entertainment Tonight got a peek at some of the behind-the-scenes action.  Starring Channing Tatum as a secret service agent and Jamie Foxx as The President, the film is a new take on the old DIE HARD formula, with the villains being a paramilitary group.  This is not to be confused with the competing project, OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, which features Gerard Butler in the Channing Tatum Role and Aaron Eckhart as The President with Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) at the helm. 

Confused yet? 

Check out Magic Mike and Motherf*cker Jones rocking the White House:

These competing projects always baffle me.  So, really, they just happen, eh?  Two asteroid-heading-to-Earth movies, two Wyatt Earp movies, two Die Hard in the White House movies, they just happened to fall in line at the exact same time?  Throws me for a loop every time.  Strangely, both WHITE HOUSE DOWN and OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN have a good line-up of talent, so I'm kind of intrigued by both projects.  

WHITE HOUSE DOWN starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Richard Jenkins, James Woods, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Joey King, Jason Clarke, and Garcelle Beauvais is slated for release on June 28, 2013.

Movie should probably be called "White House Blown The Fuck UP!", given Emmerich's filmography.

Olympus over White House. The cast seems more appropriate as Gerard is a far more enjoyable action hero than Tatum, and Foxx just doesn't come off as very presidential like. Eckhardt feels much more appropriate. While Emmerich can make an entertaining film, I'd never really qualify them as good, while Fuqua has actually made at least one really decent quality film (Training Day).

Not really looking forward to either of them, only the better reviews will tell me which one to prefer.

I don't know about other projects, but as for Wyatt Earp movies, Costner was at first set to star, but he wanted more focus on Earp and less on so many other characters, so in the end he just went out and directed his own Earp movie and Tombstone got recasted with Kurt m*therf*cking Russell. We all know how those two turned out.

that Maggie Gyllenhaal pic deserves a warning label

holy shit that chick looks like a turtle that's about to cry. Whenever I see her I automatically turn my head and close my eyes as tight as I can.

I don't care about any of the rest of that story now.

I'd much rather see Vince Flynn's novel Transfer of Power get made into a movie. Mitch Rapp would make an awesome franchise.

They are doing the Mitch Rapp francise, but instead of starting with the first book (ToP), the francise will start with the prequel book AMERICAN ASSASSIN and go from there (hopefully). Bruce Willis was recently cast as a mentor for Rapp, Rapp is yet to cast.

Olympus has Fallen. Has a way better title, and also better director/actors. That being said Tatum has been doing well of late and Fox is pretty solid. Hopefully this is more Anonymous and less 2012.
