White House Breaking News: China Box Office: 'After Earth' Retains Pole Position

Wochit 1:11 mins

The Will and Jaden Smith feature, 'After Earth' enjoyed a healthy second week in Chinese cinemas, but is expected to fade out with the opening of "White House Down." Six months ago, President Barack Obama stood on the Capitol steps and offered a soaring liberal vision for his second term. Buoyed by re-election, he said the nation must pursue without delay steps to protect children from gun violence, tackle climate change and overhaul fractured immigration laws. The White House is looking for ways to help the city of Detroit after the city filed for bankruptcy protection on Thursday, but Vice President Joe Biden said it was unclear what the administration could do. "Can we help Detroit?" Biden said in a response to a question from a reporter. "We don't know." Detroit, a former manufacturing powerhouse and cradle of the U.S. automotive industry, filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection, making it the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.
