    oh yea I love Ronald Emerich this looks amazing and also it looks to be on a greater scale than Olympus Has Fallen
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    HahaNice!! Im definitely seeing this one too. As of now though, the trailer for Olympus intrigued me more. Roland is a great director so I have no doubt this will be awesome. Also I realized this-

    Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler ( who were in Law Abiding Citizense) will play in two almost similair different movies. And Aaron Eckhart and Maggie Smith ( in The Dark Knight) as well. Interesting. I dont really fancy Tatum but I love Roland and Jamie. This will be interesting to say the least. :)

    question about Olympus was the vice president also in the bunker with the terrorists?
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    Yes hes the one who had the knife to his throat I think? Im seeing it again next week Ill let you know.
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    I know that the vice president and the president were taken hostage thats why morgan freeman the speaker was acting president.
  • NickNick Posts: 20,654 ✭✭✭✭✭
    ok also this movie really made me think exactly how easy it really would be to take the white house I mean it takes 15 minutes for a military response. kinda scary to think about.

    Trust me, all what was seen was 90% fictional. If this was a real scenerio the acting president would have the white house blown with the president in it, if cerverus was truly compromised. No doubt.
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    I really liked how the president got shot lol. And also the moment Gerard Butler told the terrorist he would stick his knife in his brain when he catches him, I knew it was going to happen. A classic move right there.
  • NickNick Posts: 20,654 ✭✭✭✭✭
    yea!!! I loved that part too knife to the brain like a boss but it was kinda overkill I mean wasn,t the terrorists neck broken?
  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    It wasnt yet I heard a crack but I think he still got him. Also the part about the traitor, that sooo reminded me of Die Hard when Alan Rickman pretends to be a histage lol!
  • NickNick Posts: 20,654 ✭✭✭✭✭
    definitely buying this when its released on blu ray.

    I watched Olympus a few hours ago. It was a great action film, with Gerard Butler being a badass in it. I'm interested on how White House Down will be different (besides the fact of having the White House attacked by Americans). I hope that no terrorist learns how to attack the White House with this film lol
  • NickNick Posts: 20,654 ✭✭✭✭✭
    americans are going to attack the white house?
  • Samch92Samch92 Posts: 6,398 mod

    Yes. Which is the reason of why that Abraham Lincoln quote was used on the trailer.

    In Olympus Has Fallen they used CGI to recreate the White House and most of Washington, but the rest was filmed on Louisiana.

    It looks more like a comedy. I cant take it serious lol, Olympus did feel real. Im sure this will be fun nonetheless!

    The first trailer was definitely not a comedy... so I don't think so. I think the latest trailer just showed a lot of the lighter side of the movie, but it doesn't mean it is a comedy.

  • RichardRichard Posts: 48,700 mod
    Well they definitely tried to show it as a comedy in this trailer which doesnt help. I just hope its better than expected.
  • yonythemoonyyonythemoony Posts: 5,638 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I think that Emmerich has used to the kind of films he makes, and decides to show that he knows how serious or funny they can be. Which is why he started to include comical bits between dramatic scenes, like in 2012.
  • NickNick Posts: 20,654 ✭✭✭✭✭
    well so far in the battle between Olympus Has Fallen And White House Down Olympus has fallen is winning. I will reseve final judgement until after I see the finished product but so far this movie while it looks awesome from an action standpoint seems too comedic given the gravity of the situation they are placed in.
  • SoulxxBondSoulxxBond Posts: 2,079 ✭✭✭✭

    Exactly! For example, one of my favorite scenes in 2012... John Cusack and Morgan Lilly, the little girl... when they are driving to escape the volcano... and he is trying to keep her calm.

    John: "Look at me, do I look scared?"
    Morgan: (nodding) "Uh-huh!"

    Absolutely love that scene.

    Also Emmerich seems to really like the father and daughter relationships in his movies. I know Channing's character has a daughter, who is played by Joey King, from Oz: The Great and Powerful. She won me over as the voice of the China Girl in that movie, so it will be interesting to see how she does in this movie.
