Rating: PG-13 Stars: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, Joey King Writer: James Vanderbilt Director: Roland Emmerich Distributor: Columbia Pictures Release Date: June 27, 2013 It’s easy to like WHITE HOUSE DOWN, even as we acknowledge that it seems awfully unlikely.
