Roland Emmerich’s White House Down really has needed a trailer like this to come out and sell the movie. Up until now, I’ve mostly forgotten about this White House movie, simply because Antoine Fuqua‘s Olympus Has Fallen still remains the single most bad-ass film of 2013.
But Emmerich is a master of disaster movies and White House Down could be a lot of PG-13-oriented fun, if Emmerich can nail down the proper tone.
And this new trailer suggests that he can, with a buff and dumb Channing Tatum aiding an anti-violent Mr. President, played by Jamie Foxx.
I still don’t think this one will be able to top Olympus, if only because an R-rating almost always guarantees a more entertaining romp over a PG-13 “safe” version, but Emmerich knows scale and Emmerich knows how to blow the shit out of just about anything, so let’s remain positive until we see more.
White House Down opens on June 28th, 2013.
