    Did they actually film a movie or just edit one from various films? Unless I`m mistaken there is literally not one original thought in that trailer. PASS!! Sorry Mr Fuqua

    It's a little bit of Die Hard mixed with Season 7 of '24' with a dash of AirForce One.

    OHF has the jump since WHD doesn't come out until June, but I'm betting WHD will be a better movie.

    I thought Channing Tatum was doing this? Gerard Butler is miscast for this role. This film looks cheaply made. That White House plastic model is laughable. This story has been done ad nauseum at this point. Ill stick to watching Homeland.

    DC: "It's the second White-House-under-attack thriller that will be out this year; the other is Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, which stars Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum."

    Is Morgan Freeman the president again?

  • ALM | January 22, 2013 9:31 PM

    No. Aaron Eckhart is

    What's with all this crummy CGI stuff in everything? Can't anybody do real practical effects anymore like they used to? What's the problem? Too expensive? Too time consuming? There's a HUGE difference between seeing something that's real than a cartoon. I'll even take model work over CGI any day

    Die Hard in the White House

    Is that really the trailer for "Olympus Has Fallen? Nooo. It is? Really?

  • slb | January 22, 2013 3:33 PMReply

    Anyone willing to guess which movie makes the most money? "Olympus" or "White House"? I'm leaning towards "White House". It has Channing Tatum who is on a hot box office streak right now and Jamie is coming off of "Django".
