White House Down is making its case as an early contender for the best (or at least most entertaining) action movie of Summer 2013. Jamie Foxx plays the President of the United States, while Channing Tatum is the secret service agent who protects him during a terrorist attack on the White House. Add director Roland Emmerich to the fun premise and likeable stars, and you have a trifecta of promise.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, Lance Reddick, James Woods, Garcelle Beauvais, and Rachelle Lefevre co-star. White House Down opens on June 28, 2013. Check out a new behind-the-scenes photo that highlights Foxx’s presidential look after the jump.

The glasses are a nice look for Foxx, though they could be the eyewear of the actor, not the character. I couldn’t find a picture of Foxx wearing eyeglasses in real life, but they’re nowhere to be seen in this featurette. Look, I think I’m way more interested in these glasses than you are, so I’ll sign off here.
