What if the powerful and secured office in the world was taken over?
“It will start like any other day,” so the teaser posters of the new action thriller “White House Down” cryptically say. Columbia Pictures has just launched the initial one-sheets the Roland Emmerich-directed potential blockbuster starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.
In the film, capitol policeman John Cale (Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.
Written by James Vanderbilt, “White House Down” also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins and Joey King.
