This Week In Home Entertainment: More From Twilight And The Hobbit, Plus White House Down
Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx should have opened up one of this summerís biggest movies. Both actors are big names in the business, and they had The Amazing Spider-Manís James Vanderbilt and big budget guru Roland Emmerich to put together the film, as well. While the movie didnít manage to dominate the box office, itís still a fun but frilly movie that's short on surprises but long on fun.

Joey King Teaches Us To Show No Fear In White House Down
Usually in movies you can threaten to endanger the lives of children or dogs, but never show either of them in anything close to resembling real peril. But White House Down, despite being a pretty lighthearted and massively entertaining action movie, really goes for it when it comes time for a little girl to stand up for herself-- and the life of the President-- to a terrorist who has a gun to her head
Roland Emmerich Reveals Which Real-LIfe President Is A Fan Of His Work
Emmerich is a man full of surprises, even if you've grown up on his movies like Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow and think you know all there is about the king of disaster movies. He's a soft-spoken, extremely friendly guy who seems to love his work, getting just as excited about uncovering the secret identity of Shakespeare as a car chase on the lawn of the White House
White House Down's Jamie Foxx And Channing Tatum Reveal The Secret To Their Bromance
Above you can watch my conversation with Tatum and Foxx, in which I ask them about the secret to their bromance-- it involves Foxx taking over a DJ booth at a party in Mexico-- and why Tatum risks his neck over and over again on the set to make sure that he does his own stunts. Foxx-- a smart veteran of the movie business-- says he's perfectly happy to let his stunt double earn his paycheck

White House Down Stumbles At Friday Box Office, While The Heat Takes Over
Alright, people, I don't know what else we can possibly give you. It's just before the Fourth of July, and you need something to see at the movies. Roland Emmerich, the guy who brought you Independence Day is back, and he's once again blowing up the White House. And the Capitol. And he's got Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as the President, for God's sake!) running around trying to stop the terrorists who did it

White House Down: Watch Our Video Review, And Discuss It With Spoilers
When you're brought to Washington D.C. for a movie called White House Down, and given the chance to step in front of a very fancy camera that right in front of the actual White House-- come on, are you going to say no? Sean and I weren't ready to do the traditional kind of "stand-up," usually reserved for TV interviews on the scene of whatever junket they're attending, but in classic laid-back Cinema Blend style, we used the very fancy cameras to record a video blog review of the movie we were there in Washington to see

This Rotten Week: Predicting White House Down and The Heat Reviews
To my fan(s) out there, I apologize. This Rotten Week comes out every single Sunday without fail. Except when I go away for the weekend, forget my computer, have a lousy internet connection on a friendís comp and leave for home seven hours later than expected. Then TRW hits the internet on Monday. Better late than never, though, as this week weíve got female buddy cops and the White House going down (again).

White House Down Extended Trailer Will Channing All Over America's Tatum
We've been pretending for months now that this February's A Good Day to Die Hard never actually happened, and it's about to get a whole lot easier to let amnesia protect the memory of John McClane. Well, really, it's Channing Tatum who will be doing it. In this new four-minute trailer for White House Down, you can see more of what's been promised by months

White House Down Featurette Takes You Inside The Beastly Presidential Limousine
It stands just over six feet tall, is stretched 40 inches longer than an average SUV, and is about a foot wider than most vehicles. The wheels have a 36-inch diameter, which is equal to that of a semi truck. Itís bullet-proof, missile-proof and damned near impenetrable Ė or at least itís made to look that way.

What Will Be The Summer's Biggest Movie? We Place Our Bets
Iron Man 3 is an enormous hit right now, nearing $1 billion at the worldwide box office and ruling the American charts for the second weekend in a row. The Great Gatsby opened just last week and managed to stun nearly everybody by making $51 million. Summer movies are there to entertain us, sure, but they're really all about the money, and even more than we want to know the true identity of Star Trek's villain or what's really going on in Edgar Wright's The World's End

Channing Tatum Blows A Job Interview, Takes Down Terrorists In New White House Down Trailer
Star Channing Tatum showed that he has a knack for playing a funny hero with his performance in 21 Jump Street, and I have to say I enjoyed what we see from him here. The talking he does to himself before running into the library is very John McClane-esque...

Channing Tatum Talks Die Hard, White House Down, And What He Has In Store For The Magic Mike Franchise
As we spoke, I as struck by how present he was, even when asked questions he'd surely heard before. Nothing he said felt rehearsed, and he seemed freshly excited and sincere as we talked about his amazing year, his hopes for his biggest action role to date, and what he has in mind for 2013. Basically, it was easy to see why so many filmmakers are fighting for his attention.

On The Set Of White House Down, Joining Channing Tatum On An Epic Race From Script To Screen
It was a chilly day in September when a small team of bloggers (including myself) strode into the White House up in Montreal. Okay, so it wasn't the real White House, but the makers of that other Die Hard at the White House movie defy you to notice the difference as they barrel audiences through their high-octane action-adventure.

Channing Tatum Looking Like John McClane In First White House Down Images
The Year of Channing Tatum, which is what I'm pretty sure we'll call 2012 in the history books when all things are said and done, looks to continue handily next year, both thanks to the delay of G.I. Joe: Retaliation (which was added to include more of Tatum, believe it or not) and White House Down, in which he plays a Secret Service agent valiantly defending

Watch Channing Tatum's Happy Dance On The Set Of White House Down
Entertainment Tonight, those famous ruiners of new trailers who can't seem to stop talking over whatever content they're given, are a little less disastrous when they're merely visiting the set of a movie.

Twilight's Rachelle Lefevre Joins White House Down And Homefront
Since playing the role of the villainous vampire Victoria in the first two Twilight films, Rachelle Lefevre has appeared in a number of feature films in addition to a couple of short-lived TV dramas.

Channing Tatum Action Film White House Down Moves Up To June 2013
Summer of last year was the battle of the in-development Snow White projects. Both Universal Pictures and Relativity Media had movies about the fairy tale princess in the works and both were rushed through production to try and beat the other to the box office. Part of this battle was a release date shift.

Roland Emmerich's White House Down Adds Jason Clarke
Fox had a solid series on its hands in the Shawn-Ryan-created cop drama The Chicago Code. Unfortunately, the 2011 Midseason show didn't earn the ratings it deserved, and it failed to receive a Season 2 order. On the bright side, Fox's loss was ABC's gain, as Ryan has since moved on to create Last Resort, which premieres on ABC this fall.

Dark Knight Rises's Joey King Joins Roland Emmerich's White House Down
Joey King is certainly building up quite a resume. Among her recent roles, she played Ramona Quimby in Ramona and Beezus, and the part of Amanda Peet's daughter in the under-appreciated NBC comedy Bent. And those who saw The Dark Knight Rises caught a peek of her there as well-- without spoiling anything, you may remember her as a talented climber. Coming up, she'll be getting in on the action for Roland Emmerich's White House Down.

Richard Jenkins Up For Roland Emmerich's White House Down
Despite being German-born, filmmaker Roland Emmerich has made arguably the most patriotic American action movie of all time with Independence Day. Since then, however, he's stumbled with clunky epics like Godzilla and The Day After Tomorrow. But with rumors of Independence Day 2 brewing, and his return to Washington D.C.-set thriller, White House Down, Emmerich seems primed for a revitalization!

James Woods In Talks To Join White House Down
If things work out, Roland Emmerich may eventually have his hands full with the talked about Independence Day sequel. In the meantime, from the sound of it, his next feature project takes place entirely on earth, with no mentioned aliens in its description.

Maggie Gyllenhaal May Join Channing Tatum In White House Down
In Independence Day German filmmaker Roland Emmerich blew up the White House, but saved the American president so that the character could go on to deliver one of the most stirring addresses of movie history! In his next action-packed thriller White House Down, Emmerich has 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue under siege and the president trapped within its luxurious walls.

Jamie Foxx To Play The President In Roland Emmerich's White House Down
Foxx is clearly an actor with a ton of range, and while the lead role in Django will probably give him plenty of chances to show it off, it probably won't hurt either to take on a role that's completely and totally different for his next effort

Channing Tatum Could Star In Action Thriller White House Down
Who would have thought that 2012 was going to be the year of Channing Tatum? Okay, it's a bit of an exaggeration, but the star who was once considered nothing more than a less talented Josh Hartnett clone has really had a fantastic start to the year with a supporting turn in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire as well as his hilarious and charismatic performance in the surprisingly stellar 21 Jump Street (not to mention the box office success of The Vow).

Roland Emmerich Could Direct New Action Project White House Down
Roland Emmerich is largely known as the director of the epic movie, but recently he has started to change his tone. While he'll likely always be known as the director of films like Independence Day, 2012, Godzilla, and The Day After Tomorrow, his latest title, Anonymous, was a smaller story about the William Shakespeare conspiracy.
