Roland Emmerich directs, whilst Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum star, as the White House is back under attack...

Olympus Has Fallen has proven to be the first surprise hit of 2013. The White House under attack action movie has its problems, but it feels a purer action film that you get from a Die Hard sequel these days, and its global take currently stands at $130m off a $70m budget. It's all but guaranteed to be a sizeable hit on home formats too.

Which has left Sony with an interesting challenge. For it has the second White House under attack movie of the year to come, courtesy of Roland Emmerich's White House Down. This one stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, and is heading to our screens in September, hoping that we'll all go and watch two films of similar ilk. A brand new trailer for it has launched too, which you can see below.

The general rule when two movies arrive with similar subject matter in close succession is that the first is the 'clever' one (Deep Impact, Dante's Peak), with the more action-centric one to follow (Armageddon, Volcano). Might that change this time around? Take a look and see what you reckon...
