White House Breaking News: Box Office Report: ''White House Down,' With Only $25 Million Opening

Wochit 0:59 mins

Roland Emmerich's big-budget tentpole "White House Down", Starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, may only open to a dismal $25 million, likely hurt by hitting theaters so soon after the similarly themed "Olympus Has Fallen." The $150 million film, from Sony, took in around $9 million on Friday to only narrowly beat World War Z ($8.9 million). The White House is recruiting local officials to promote and carry out President Obama's health care law in states like Texas and Florida where governors are hostile to it. Another United States senator has said he thinks the actions of National Security Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden may constitute treason, just one day after White House officials expressed additional concern over just how much information the leaker has in his possession.
