Last year Disney dealt with John Carter, this year it’s The Lone Ranger – it’s safe to say people were fired. Variety has published a list of the Biggest Bombs of 2013, and there are not a lot of surprises here if you keep up with the financial goings-on and box office results of the movies, everyone does that right? Harrison Ford was in two of them, so yes, he will sign on for more Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies thank you very much.

White House Down
Olympus Has Fallen happened about 3 months ago; I don’t know why studios don’t see each other’s copycat movies and either move some dates around or play a game of paper-rock-scissors to see who gets to run with the horrible premise. White House Down has Channing Tatum but director Roland Emmerich made it, so bring on the clichés and awful looking action sequences.
I had some free passes to see this movie last week and didn’t bother going. That could mean one of two things…actually no, I just couldn’t be bothered.
In case you didn’t get your fill of White House action with Olympus Has Fallen, Roland Emmerich, director of such destruction-porn as The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, has your back.
His new film, White House Down, looks like it hits much the same beats as Olympus Has Fallen, but I suppose we’ll have to wait until June before we can have the first of many “which Die Hard in the White House film was better?” arguments.
Have a gander at the trailer, as well as the new poster, after the jump and decide for yourself.
