The Sony Pictures film, which is directed by Roland Emmerich and also stars Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Joey King, recently had an exclusive trailer première event in London, and Chan was on hand to hang with fans and answer questions.
In the Q&A, he talked about his respect for costar Jamie Foxx gushing,
“Jamie is a mentor, a big brother and by far one of the most talented individuals I’ve been around, never mind been lucky enough to have worked with. He has taught me an insane amount.”
Here’s what the highly anticipated action/thriller is all about…
In Columbia Pictures’ 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 his daughter, the president, and the country.
