Well, the poster is slightly new. It was actually released earlier this month, but it's been ever so slightly tweaked so that Channing Tatum isn't covering Jamie Foxx so much. In a way, that's actually not a bad move since the second trailer for Roland Emmerich's summer action bonanza, White House Down, plays out more like a buddy cop action comedy as opposed to Tatum doing all the heavy lifting to protect Foxx as the President of the United States of America. Honestly, this could almost be a poster for a relocated remake of Die Hard with a Vengeance, because Tatum is clearly doing his best John McClane. Look below!
Here's the retooled poster for Roland Emmerich's White House Down straight from Columbia Pictures:
White House Down is directed by action mastermind Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, Anonymous) from a screenplay written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, The Losers, Zodiac). In the film, a Secret Service agent (Channing Tatum) is tasked with saving the life of the President of the United States of America (Jamie Foxx) after the White House is overtaken by a paramilitary group. It's said to be an action-thriller to rival the likes of Die Hard. Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins and Jason Clarke also star in the film. Columbia Pictures will be bringing Emmerich's new action movie White House Down to theaters on June 28th, 2013 this summer.
