Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s hitting the silver screen this weekend.
â€śWhite House Downâ€ť
Whatâ€™s it about? Cale (Channing Tatum) must find a way to rescue his daughter with the president of the United States in tow (Jamie Foxx) when terrorists attack the White House.
Will it be good? I guess it depends on oneâ€™s definition of â€śgood.â€ť It looks entertaining, thatâ€™s for sure. If nothing else, director Roland Emmerich (â€śIndependence Dayâ€ť) knows how to explode the White House better than anyone. Should be a fun, if goofy, time as an imitation of the â€śDie Hardâ€ť formula.
Whatâ€™s it about? FBI agent Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is paired with Boston cop Mullins (Melissa McCarthy). The two (comedically) clash as they try to take down a drug lord.
Will it be good? Director Paul Feig had a massive hit with â€śBridesmaidsâ€ť and that certainly in no small part due to his use of McCarthyâ€™s comedic chops. She and Bullock look to make a pretty great mismatched pair, so this could well end up being one of the better comedic outings of the summer.
