Your Mom's Washington DC Photo is on 'White House Down' Poster
"All right, we've got an action movie starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Jason Clarke, Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Woods. What should we put on the poster? Olympus Has Fallen already used destroyed images of the White House and all the Photoshop cliches. Maybe we can just have Channing Tatum standing next to the president, guarding him?" said the marketing executive. But then, some guy down the hall says, "Hey, my Mom just went to Washington DC and she took this great photo." Brilliant! Seriously, we're excited for White House Down (there's a trailer tomorrow), especially after the waste that was Olympus Has Fallen, but this is lame. Everyone has a photo like this from their school field trips.
Here's the first poster for Roland Emmerich's White House Down, debuted on Moviefone:
There's a second poster from The Huffington Post as well. Looks like it's leading to something:
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 next summer.
