Another action packed Channing Tatum movie hits this June and luckily it's not G.I. Joe: Retailiation, but the latest master of disaster Roland Emmerich's White House Down where he naturally shed his shirt in the name of national security. This one can easily be described as Die Hard in the Whitehouse, but the first trailer (below) looks like a fun shoot em up summer movie that'll appeal to everyone.
Gerald Butler's Olympus Has Fallen pretty much came and went leaving a few month stretch before Tatum's White House disaster film lands at the theaters. Naturally everyone will be comparing the two, but I have a feeling it will be a little like the two Snow White films that came out last year and see which one of them you remember more. Roland Emmerich's films have been hit or miss (especially since he Dean Devlin split ways), but you can always count on him for spectacle which is what we've come to expect in our summer movies. Thankfully he seems to provide more restraint than Michael Bay. On that note, I will have to congratulate Bay on his use of restraint in the Mark Wahlberg Dwayne Johnson Pain and Gain which is uneven, but easily worth renting when it hits blu-ray/dvd.
