Explosive new trailer for White House Down: watch now

White House Down has released a brand new trailer online, in which Channing Tatum’s badass security aide finds himself having to defend President Jamie Foxx from a gang of White House-invading terrorists.

As if to make things even worse, its Tatum’s first day on the job! Well, he’s actually only there for a job interview, so he’d really be within his rights to turn tail and run.

Sadly, however, his daughter is among the hostages, so even if he doesn’t want to do his duty to the leader of the free world, he’ll have to stay put to rescue his own flesh and blood...

Take a look at the new trailer, below:

As has been heavily documented, this is basically the same film as Olympus Has Fallen , with a similarly tongue-in-cheek approach to the carnage. “God this is so stupid” mutters Tatum at one point, in what seems to be a direct wink at the camera. Daft it might be, but it could still be a lot of fun...

Directed by Roland Emmerich and co-starring Jason Clarke, Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Woods, White House Down will open in the UK on 6 September 2013 (after it opens in the US on 27 June 2013).
