    There's White House Down but i'm not sure if there's another one coming up.

    This one looks pretty good, Antoine Fuqua is directing it so my ticket is sold.

    i thought that Olympus has Fallen and White House Down is the same movie and that they just changed the title.

    I seriously thought this was the Channing Tatum movie at first.

    Thought the trailer was alright, just wished they had kept it more low key. Premise is already interesting, didn't need to show how much things were blowing up.

    It's basically Under Siege in the White House. :D The effects on the aerial action scenes look a bit ropey but it looks like oldschool fun, shame Ashley Judd seems to have a very small part. :(

    Maybe they will go full ridiculous. She didn't die and comes back to have her revenge.

    "You paid more attention to your job than me!"

    "Those insurgents were gonna die!"

    This looks amazing. I like Gerard Butler , but most of his other films haven't been that good. This has better potential.

    No, he wasn't.

    Yes, this has NOTHING to do with greek myhotlogy

    They even try to make it look like the temple of the gods. What a poor attempt! :whatever:

    It's a code within the film, and that's what the White House looks like...minus the fire that is. Don't be so literal lol. I think it's a cool poster, striking but evocative of the premise. I prefer that to floating photoshopped heads.

    Darksovereignty: I know what WW looks like, but in that poster they tried hard to make it look like a temple from a certain mythology.

    I expect, nay, demand, a montage sequence of Gerard assembling a cruel and awesome weapon out of household products he finds around the White House.


    He was, but not the Phantom you're thinking about. He was the musical Phantom of the Opera, a role that he was manifestly unfit for. Thanks again, Schumacher!

    Or they're trying to create a dramatic image and you're reading too much into it.

    I knew it was a good idea to push back GI JOE 2.

    Gerard Butler seems to have finally figured out what people want to see him in.

    You'd have thought he knew that after 300.

    Nobody wants to see Butler in just about anything.

    I'm going to watch the movie because I enjoy dumb ideas but I'm more looking forward to the White House Down trailer. Box office wise I think that OHF will be Mirror Mirror to White House Down's Snow White and the Huntsman.
