Channing Tatum takes on the bad guys in the latest clip from the upcoming thriller White House Down.
The Magic Mike star tackles the role of a Secret Service agent named Cale in director Roland Emmerich’s action flick. In order to eliminate a group of terrorists determined to take over the White House, Cale will join forces with the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx).
The embedded White House Down clip finds Channing Tatum engaged in a firefight with a group of heavily-armed terrorists. The footage involves a lot of bullets, a few close calls, and a lot of sliding and diving. Fans of the actor should anticipate a lot of action from his latest cinematic endeavor.
The clip also gives prospective moviegoers a chance to see Jamie Foxx in action. Although the Jordans he’s wearing in the video look a little out-of-place, they make for a pretty funny moment involving the President and one of the terrorists.
Although Channing Tatum’s action flick doesn’t hit theaters until the end of the month, White House Down is already generating a healthy amount of positive reviews from a number of established film critics.
“White House Down is a fun summer action film that earns its cheesiness. A surprising human center helps enhance the super dumb set pieces,” Slash Film critic Germain Lussier explained after a recent screening.
Fellow Slash Film reviewer Peter Sciretta was also impressed with Roland Emmerich’s thriller, calling it the “dumb fun popcorn flick of the summer.” He also stated it was Emmerich’s best effort since the 90s science fiction epic Independence Day.
In addition to Tatum and Foxx, White House Down stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, and James Woods. Curious audiences can check out Emmerich’s action flick start competing for your entertainment dollar on June 28.
