Columbia Pictures has released a new trailer for director Roland Emmerich’s 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.  While the first teaser trailer played up the severity of the situation, this full trailer shows that the film has a much lighter tone than we initially thought.  It looks to be along the lines of a buddy cop movie, only in this case one half of the team is the President of the United States.  As for comparisons to Olympus Has Fallen, whereas the Gerard Butler-fronted actioner was all doom and gloom (and a heavy amount of “dumb”), this new trailer for White House Down makes Emmerich’s take on the same premise look like a whole lot of fun.

Also starring Maggie GyllenhaalJames Woods, Richard Jenkins, Joey King, Jake Weber, Lance Reddick and Jason ClarkeWhite House Down opens on June 28th.  Hit the jump to check out the new trailer, and click here to catch up on Steve’s set visit coverage.

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.
