Watch: Channing Tatum Has The Worst Job Interview Ever In New Trailer For 'White House Down'

Okay, unless you can't find a babysitter, do people really bring their kids to job interviews or is that just a movie thing? Anyway, it's the device used to establish in "White House Down" that: a) Channing Tatum's buff hero is also sensitive and caring b) It's gives him Something To Fight For and c) it sets the whole story (implausibly) in motion. Now can we get to the explosions please?

Okay, unless you can't find a babysitter, do people really bring their kids to job interviews or is that just a movie thing? Anyway, it's the device used to establish in "White House Down" that: a) Channing Tatum's buff hero is also sensitive and caring, b) gives him Something To Fight For and c) it sets the whole story (implausibly) in motion. Now can we get to the explosions please?

A new trailer for the second movie this year about explosions at the White House has arrived and it's ridonkulous in the way that Roland Emmerich knows how to deliver. The plot? Some dudes attack the White House. And it doesn't even matter who it is or why because we get SUVs in swimming pools, helicopters flying super low and cool and Jamie Foxx losing a rocket launcher. Scratch that. Jamie Foxx shooting a rocket launcher. Though we have to say his hyper-dweeb President is pretty amusing. Anyway C-Tates will kill some people and win the day, all for his daughter, and hopefully he'll get called back for a second interview.

Listen, this isn't gonna tax your brain and you probably shouldn't over think it. Just buy some nachos, go into a cheese coma and watch this on June 28th.
