White House Down

If the trailer is any indicator (and we'll admit it's not much to go on just yet), this summer's White House Down from Independence Day director Roland Emmerich looks better than Olympus Has Fallen. While we weren't a fan of the initial teaser poster campaign leading up to the trailer release, these two new posters are pretty cool. One featuring Channing Tatum feels a bit generic, and would easily be a Die Hard poster if Bruce Willis took his place, and the other has a pretty cool high angle on the White House burning. This should be a solid action thriller, and at least Tatum will see more screentime than G.I. Joe: Retaliation.

Here's two new international posters for Roland Emmerich's White House Down from IMP Awards:

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.

You don't really give the bad guys who live in your head much clout in the imagination department, do you?

It's exactly the SAME plot of Olympus Has Fallen. WTF?

And they are both a complete rip off of Flynns book Transfer of power

"From the Director of" -- movies where the White House gets completely fucked.

Timing sucks.

"to rival the likes of Die Hard"...? If this is even in the same ball park as the 1st Die Hard (or 2nd or third for that matter), I'll be amazed. On the other hand, I can't imagine how it could be worse that the mess that was A Good Day to Die Hard.
