‘White House Down’ Clip: Watch Out! President Jamie Foxx Has a Rocket Launcher

Few summer movies look as fun as ‘White House Down.’ After getting to see eight minutes of footage during a special presentation, hosted by director Roland Emmerich and stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, we see this as a nice change of pace from all the superhero and sci-fi offerings of late. Now the latest clip from the film only makes its charm and sense of humor stand out more from the familiar “Die Hard in the White House!” formula.

Debuting on Yahoo Movies, this short piece of footage finds police officer John Cale (Channing Tatum) behind the wheel of the bulletproof presidential limo with President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) in tow. Trapped on the White House lawn and under fire from terrorists, the duo needs to find something to aid in their escape. Of course, the President of the United States finds a rocket launcher and fires it out the window. It’s just as silly, amazing and badass as it sounds.

Like many promotional clips, this scene feels like it’s been chopped to within an inch of its life, but there’s an undeniable energy here that was lacking in the otherwise similar ‘Olympus Has Fallen.’ Tatum and Foxx seem to make a terrific mismatched duo, the humor appears spot-on and the action looks big, silly and well-shot (although we’d expect nothing less from Roland Emmerich).

‘White House Down’ opens in theaters on June 28.
