Sony Pictures has released a new featurette for director Roland Emmerich’s upcoming actioner White House Down.  The story follows a rejected Secret Service applicant (Channing Tatum) who must save the President (Jamie Foxx) when a heavily-armed paramilitary group takes over the White House.  We saw in the most recent trailer that the pic has an almost buddy cop feel to it, and this featurette shows off a few new bits of footage that continue to be promising.  We also get a fascinating look behind the scenes at the massive sets that Emmerich built in order to re-create the White House, as he shot almost exclusively on soundstages for the film.

Hit the jump to watch the featurette, and if you missed any of Steve’s set visit coverage be sure to check out 35 things to know and his interviews with Tatum, Emmerich, producers Brad Fischer and Reid Carolin, producer Harold Kloser, and production designer Kirk M. Petruecelli.  The film also stars Jason Clarke, James Woods, and Maggie Gyllenhaal and opens on June 28th.

Here’s the synopsis for White House Down:

Capitol Policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it’s up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.
