VIDEO: ‘White House Down’ Trailer

Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx actioner arrives June 28

Less than 48 hours after “Olympus Has Fallen” surprised at the box office, Columbia Pictures is gearing up for its own presidential thriller:  “White House Down,” starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Fox.

The Roland Emmerich-directed film, which Sony bought last year in one of the biggest sales to date ($3 million), was written by James Vanderbuilt and tells the story of a Secret Service agent (Tatum) forced into action to defend the U.S. president (Foxx) after a string of deadly attacks in Washington. Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods and Richard Jenkins co-star.

Sony is hoping “White House Down” will successfully book-end a busy month of June for the studio.  M. Night Shyamalan’s “After Earth,” starring Will Smith and Jaden Smith, is set for June 7, the Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg party comedy “This is the End” debuts June 13 before “White House Down” wraps up the month on June 28.

Produced by Vanderbilt and partners Bradley Fischer and Laeta Kalogridis through Mythology Entertainment,  “White House Down” is Emmerich’s follow-up to the Sony-distribbed  “2012,” which went on to gross over $750 million worldwide.

Emmerich is also producing alongside Harald Kloser.
