From Roland Emmerich, director of Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, comes the hard-hitting, non-stop thrill ride White House Down. Written by James Vanderbilt, it stars two of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, Channing Tatum and Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx. The top-notch support cast includes Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, Joey King and James Woods.
U.S. Capitol Policeman John Cale hopes to impress his little girl Emily by getting his dream job with the Secret Service. However, the interview is conducted by a former college acquaintance who believes he is unqualified for the position. Not wanting to disappoint Emily, he lies to her about the outcome of the interview and takes her on a tour of the White House. However during the tour, the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group and the White House is put on lockdown, separating father from daughter. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, Cale is offered a chance to prove himself by saving the president, his daughter and his country.
The DVD and Blu-ray come with four behind-the-scenes featurettes chronicling the on- and off-screen chemistry between the dynamic leading duo, their willingness and desire to train for and perform their own stunts, a look at Emmerich’s vision for the film and how he was able to achieve it, along with a spotlight on the star-studded supporting cast. Exclusive to Blu-ray is over an hour of bonus features, including an exclusive gag reel, along with nine exclusive making-of featurettes, taking audiences behind the scenes to see what it took to bring the high-adrenaline adventure to the big screen.
