Rory Bruer, Sony's president of worldwide distribution said, “We think White House Down is the summer’s best action movie. [Seeing White House Down] is a great way to celebrate the holiday and to honor and thank the troops for their service to our country.”

To be fair, it's also a great way for them to cash in on the holiday. Plus, White House Down could use some positive word of mouth. When the film debuted last weekend, it earned a disappointing $24.8 million. It came in at No. 4 behind World War Z, The Heat and Monsters University.

White House Down centers on a former soldier who attempts to get a job with the president's Secret Service. As he tours the White House with his daughter, the building is attacked by terrorists. The film stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx and is directed by Roland Emmerich.
