Film Flush 2.0 - 'White House Down' exclusive with Roland Emmerich

In this special episode of Film Flush, Dex sat down with film director Roland Emmerich who was recently in Singapore to promote his latest actioner 'White House Down'.

In part one, Emmerich explains why he loves to blow up the White House and shares with us his experience directing his first action movie in years. The man behind blockbusters like 'Independance Day' '2012', 'Godzilla' and 'The Day After Tomorrow' then talks about his lead actors Channing Tatum who plays police officer John Cale and Jamie Foxx who plays the President of The United States.

The movie which opens in cinemas on 27 June follows Cale (Tatum) who has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer (Foxx).  Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group.  Now, with the nation’s government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.
