I am a self proclaimed movie snob. I admit it. I sneer at Transformer movie trailers and anything else that looks equally mindless.
And then there are Roland Emmerich films. He has done movies like Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow. Action packed and light on the story. In my opinion (feel free to throw tomatoes) his movies stand out from the rest because of their heart with a side of cheese.
His new flick is White House Down with Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum. Two extremely talented guys and they aren’t too shabby looking. Foxx plays the President and Tatum plays the guy trying to protect him when the White House comes under attack. The trailer promises a lot of explosions and humor.
Instead of the trailer I am attaching the song and video the two leads did together. They originally performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! It became so popular that they created a video. It’s catchy even with all the inappropriateness. It is the best advertising for the movie because it shows that these guys don’t take themselves seriously.
Have a great week!
