Channing Tatum is John McClane on New 'White House Down' Poster

White House Down

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

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.

The comparisons to Die Hard are getting pretty aggressive, are people just making them because of the plot? I'll be surprised if Tatum's character has a single iota of the personality McClane does.

Stylist: Here's your belt, Mr. Tatum. Tatum: One belt? Stylist: Yes, sir. Tatum: Fuck that shit. Gimme another one. This is gonna take two!

The second belt isn't for holding his pants.

Yeah, I'm sure it'll be a masterpiece movie like the original Die Hard...

It cannot touch the king.

Ah Ctates the Micheal Bay of acting. Die Hard pffft that's what his "career" needs to do.

Jesus, this has to be the worst photoshop poster I've seen in a long time. How does Hollywood not get someone with better skills then my 10 year old brother? Just awful.

I was about to say the same thing. Their heads look like they were cut and paste even from afar.

Channing Tatum= Josh Heartnet

John McClane don't need any holster, so shut the fuck up about channing tatum being like John fucking McClane! I personally don't like any of roland emmerich's movies except for Independence Day even though it was fucking cheesy but it worked, but his other movies lack substance especially 10,000 b.c and 2012!
