John McClane: the younger years! Check out this new poster for White House Down with Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx

May. 3, 2013by:

Yesterday saw the debut of the new trailer for WHITE HOUSE DOWN, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, which looks every bit the Roland Emmerich masterwork that you’d expect. Cheesy, loud, explosive, and ridiculous, it’s got all the ingredients of an Emmerich summer romp. Now, to amp you up even further, we have a new poster for the flick, this time showing John McClane Channing Tatum and Barrack Obama Jamie Foxx as they sift through the rubble of an attack on the United States’ Capitol.

Get Down:

Here’s the synopsis:

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.

WHITE HOUSE DOWN, starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins, Jason Clarke, and Joey King starts dying hard on June 28, 2013.

Your Kidding Right?

Younger John McClane! are you on crack, Willis can shit more talent than Tatum will ever have, I have yet to see the fascination with this dude, he is a semi pretty boy with no talent, it hurts my head to watch him try to act. Yes they may be trying to make a Die Hard rip off but he is no Bruce Willis, even on Bruce's worse day.

John Mcclane the younger years?

That grunting ape doesn't deserve a comparison to a character that good (minus the last two movies).

If this is half as daft as the trailer, I'm in - President with a rocket launcher is worth a ticket in my book. Especially if he gets a line like "It's time for this POTAS to KICK ass!"

I actually liked the chemistry between them in the trailer, not a bad throwback to the buddy action movies from the 80's and 90's. If only neither of them was POTUS then it could've been somewhat believable as well.

Poster is bland beyond belief though, and Foxx's head needs a better Photoshop artist.

It's interesting how a lot of people on here all over Channing Tatum when he takes off all his clothes and strips but not when he does what looks like a decent Die Hard throwback. Hmm very interesting....

Channing is good at playing a lovable-dumbass than a likeable-badass and thats why he's getting all this praise because he's finally found his niche role

I'm not usually a public nay-sayer... but the more I stared at that poster, the more utterly silly I found it.

Could you imagine if they had an actual John McClane / Barack Obama teamup? I'd pay SHIT-tons to see that movie.

Prez: Good Evening, Tonight I can report to the American people and to the world, that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Hans Gruber, the leader of the Nakatomi hostage takers.... Justice has been done. Yippy ki yay.

McClane: Geronimo, Geronimo, Geronimo, Motherfucker.

Older than John Kennedy or Theodore Roosevelt when they took office. Or is that too long ago to qualify?

I was just saying from an opinion stand point. Not that it couldn't happen I just don't really see a really young president.
