Default White House Down Trailer

While on a tour of the White House with his young daughter, a police officer (Channing Tatum) springs into action to protect his child and the president (Jamie Foxx) from a heavily armed group of paramilitary invaders.

Sounds familiar....

Directed by Roland Emmerich (I was an extra on that failed ABC pilot he worked on last year) and written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, which I was an extra on too).

Sorry, but Channing Tatum has the personality of bird seed.

They cut this trailer with extra gravitas to differentiate from Olympus, but based on the scripts they seriously are the same movie. I'm sure they've had rewrites, but the original versions of the scripts even shared the same set piece ideas. Now they need to find a way to convince America they didn't just go see this movie a couple months ago.

I used to dislike Channing Tatum, but then I saw 21 Jump Street, and then I saw Haywire, and then I saw Magic Mike. I am now a fan of Channing Tatum.

I read the script. It was solid. It was beat-for-beat Die Hard, but solid. I'll go see it.

Can't go wrong blowing up the White House. At any given time half of America is willing to pay to see that...

Yawn, just read the Youtube comments of anything related to this. 80% of it mentions Olympus Has Fallen and how Hollywood can't come up with anything better!

You Tube comments also say Dredd is a rip-off of The Raid and Two Days In The Valley is a rip-off of Pulp Fiction. You Tube is full of fucking idiots.

A lot of us on DDP and other screenwriting forums look at films from a different perspective from the mass public, and usually stay more up to date on industry news and specs/screenplays in development.

It would be reasonable for a random teenager who saw both trailers back-to-back to question the obvious similarities and closeness of release dates.
