    One of two Die Hard in the White House movies coming out in 2013. This one's got a somewhat smaller budget but plays it straight. From the director of Training Day, King Arthur and Shooter.

    Could be good, could be crap. I'm a sucker for the Die Hard On A scenario but I don't really care for Butler. Hadn't realised Freeman was in it though and Eckhart is always good. I wonder how the other one, in which Chatum Tanning stars and Jamie Foxx is the Pres, will compare.

    I could have laid money down that the phrase 'with all due respect' would be used in this film.

    Butler is in it? Oh, then it will bomb. Like 90% of his other movies.

    Looks like it could be good brainless fun but Butler is a charisma black hole. They shoulda had Eckhart play the lead role with Morgan Freeman as the president. (It's too weird to see a movie like this with him in it where he doesn't play the president.)

    It's interesting how movies always come out in twos.

    I assume he's playing a role a la Dean Stockwell in Air Force One and they wanted somebody heavy enough to do it.

    Since he's the acting president here, he's more Glenn Close in Air Force One.

    Wait and see a response from White House Down, Roland Emmerich's terrorists-occupy-the-White-House movie with Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.

    There's gotta be some corporate espionage or something going on when that happens.

    Ghost/Always
    Deep Impact/Armageddon
    Friends with Benefits/No strings Attached
    Etc/etc...

    Pretty much, although it'll probably be more enjoyable once one accepts it for what it is: a brainless popcorn flick. It does, however, have the added bonus of featuring Morgan Freeman and Melissa Leo.

    Just re the other movie, White House Down, how many times will that be that Roland Emmerich will have destroyed that famous building by then?

    Yeah, but she wasn't setup as a pseudo-villain the way the Stockwell character was.

    Conceptually, I like it, and I like Antoine Fuqua's work.

    The FX work, however, looks shoddy.

    I'm thinking "threes"... Gotta bet that Asylum Pictures will be putting out a knockoff picture starying C. Thomas Howell as the President and Ernie Hudson in the Speaker's role.

    Coming Soon - "The White House has Fallen Down".... :guffaw:

    I thought it would be total shit but that trailer actually surprised me. Not saying I'd pay to go see it, but it might be worth a watch somewhere down the road.

    I'm surprised they didn't get C. Thomas Howell to be in their Hitcher knockoff. That would've taken it to a whole new level.

    There's actually nothing listed on their website to ride the coattails of White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen. Their next ripoff is of Jack the Giant Slayer.

    Give them two weeks. And, I'm not kidding. I read once that they only need four to six weeks to go from "concept" to finished product pressed and shipped.

    Could be fun action film:cool:
    I have to say that I have thing for movies about the President of US and Secret Service, so this will be something I want to see.
    Plus it has Freeman, Mitchell and Judd also:)
    I do not mind Butler myself and the cast in this seems somewhat more interesting than in the other one mentioned.
