‘White House Down’ Trailer: Let’s Keep Blowin’ Up the White House!
Roland Emmerich, director of such brilliant films such as Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, and Godzilla, presumably does not want to blow up the White House. After all, the whole point of his apparent obsession with blowing up the White House is that America gets together, following the blowing-up of the White House, to blow up whoever blew up the White House, because whoever would do such a terrible thing (blowing up the White House) must be punished. At the same time, Roland Emmerich really loves blowing up the White House. And pretty much everything else. Nothing is too sacred to blow up! Anyway, for those of us who didn’t get enough explosions in the recent blown-up-White-House epic Olympus Has Fallen, here’s the trailer for White House Down, in which President Jamie Foxx (sure) is saved by Channing Tatum (why not). No aliens this time, unfortunately.
