Wait, wasn’t I just posting about Channing Tatum in a new “White House Down” poster? I guess I was. Well I should have waited, because hours after I did that, the studio released the first trailer for the Roland Emmerich-directed film. The action for this thing takes place mostly in and around the White House, but if this trailer is to be believed, Emmerich still found ways to bring his brand of mayhem to the rest of the country, too. Gee, thanks, Roland.

Check out your first look at “White House Down”. With Hollywood’s sudden newfound need to blow up the White House, you’d think a Republican was in office or sumthin’.

Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie 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.

“White House Down” stars Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Richard Jenkins, Rachelle Lefevre, Joey King, Lance Reddick, Garcelle Beauvais, Jason Clarke, and Jake Weber.

The White House goes kablooey this June 28, 2013.
