‘White House Down’ Moves to Summer 2013

White House Down gets a June 28, 2013 release date Sony Pictures has moved the upcoming action-thriller White House Down up from November 1, 2013 to June 28, 2013. The project will be competing against Fox's comedy The Internship, and Universal's R.I.P.D. next June. It would be going up against Summit's Ender's Game if it would have stayed in the November 1 frame.

White House Down stars Channing Tatum as a Secret Service agent who must take action when a paramilitary group takes everyone in the White House hostage. Jamie Foxx stars as the President of the United States, alongside Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Joey King, Richard Jenkins, Jason Clarke, and Lance Reddick.

Roland Emmerich is directing from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt, which was acquired by Sony Pictures for $3 million earlier this year. No reason was given for the release date shift, although it is possible the studio may be trying to distance itself from another similar project, Millennium Entertainment's Olympus Has Fallen. That thriller stars Gerard Butler as a former Secret Service agent who springs into action to defend the President (Aaron Eckhart) against terrorists.

White House Down was released June 28th, 2013.

      @jasdjqs Usually there's a general high concept going around in Hollywood and studios try to beat each other to the punch. Armageddon/Deep Impact, Dante's Peak/Volcano, Red Planet/Mission to Mars, now the two Steve Jobs biopics.

          How is it three or four movies come out in the same year, with the same plot? DO THEY CALL EACH OTHER AND SAY "Mine will be better!!! you'll see !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            @skywise I kinda like Chris Klein. He doesn't have a lot of range that's for sure, but he's pretty good in other stuff. I liked him in American Dreamz for example.

              Strange casting going on here.

              @yannick-decorte LOL about that Chris Klein comment. I was just having a discussion with a bud about how much he sucks.

                Take out Channing and it would be slightly better, the guy is just awful.

                  Cool cast but not believable for a second. Channing Tatum as a secret service agent and Jamie Foxx as the president of the United States? Why not Chris Klein as the president of the United States and Warwick Davis as the agent?

                    Nice cast but doesn't seem like it will be good.

                        I wish James Woods was playing the president instead of Jamie Foxx.. As for the film after seeing the expected disaster that was 2012 (No pun intended), I would say that calling it a guilty pleasure is a stretch.

                            @moviegeek i like how he blows stuff up but cannot stand him as a director. his worldview is awful. as for tatum... couldn't agree more. terrible.

                            the head-scratcher for me is maggie g, james w and richard j (indie film stars) signing up for this tatum-disaster, er, i mean popcorn flick.

                              I like how Emmerich blows stuff up, but that synopsis and Tatum in the lead cry out for how awful this is going to end up. The best it can be is a guilty pleasure.
