When Hollywood Made Two Movies About Saving the White House

In 2013 we got two pretty identical movies. The White House is in trouble and it's up to a lone wolf to stop the bad guys. Both of these movies were met with mixed reception and were forgotten about. But I want to talk about them for some reason.

Never having seen either film I always remembered them as "The White House Has Fallen" Of course, "Olympus Down" is the far superior film

Aren't the Matrix and Terminator the same story from a book a black lady wrote and still says she was robbed? Interesting to see the Matrix directors putting the Oracle character in the Matrix, a lady who looks exactly like this lady-writer.

I don't know which is more comedic about Olympus Has Fallen: the fact that a hijacked AC-130 got within a hundred miles of DC without getting vaporized by the entire US Air Force or the fact that hundreds of secret service agents threw themselves at a minigun that was firing nonstop at the front doors.

@Pietro Tettamanti well when the first plane hit tower one, no one knew what actually happened, everyone thought it was just a tragic accident. It wasn’t until the second tower was hit that everyone knew it was an attack.

@Dave Marsh that trillion dollar defense system worked for everything except what happened with 9/11. No one had ever thought or even expected of a terrorist attack of that scale. In fact, before 9/11, security was very lax compared to today in all levels. People could even cross the US/Can border without hassle. Now it’s very hard to do anything here. 9/11 sparked the age of surveillance and security.

Stan Lee talked about the "Twin" issue in the comic world, first many of the workers switch between the different companies. Also many of them are friends and go to the same hangout spots, where they swap stories and come up with ideas together. So when they went back to the pitch tables many of those ideas would come up, and such are picked up and used in both places.

From watching both films, I have to say that Olympus has Fallen just has a better script and feels more grounded compared to White House Down, which has as much CGI and explosions as a Marvel movie before Marvel movies were what they are today. Plus the Sequels felt great too, and what makes them great is the use of practical effects to create tension and suspense, compared to CGI that easily looks fake and degrades the grounded feeling you should get from a film such as this.

As a kid, I was obsessed with reading the entire Calandar section of LA Times and was subscribed to Entertainment Weekly (my parents were awesome getting me subscriptions to both) but the first "twin films" I really noticed (apart from maybe Antz/A Bugs Life) was 2004s "Chasing Liberty" and "First Daughter" both about US president's daughter wanting freedom from parents, and remember reading about Chasing Liberty starring Mandy Moore, while it was in development and then was an extremely confused 7th grader when I read about Katie Holmes in First Daughter, even questioning myself if I was getting things mixed up in my brain or they were changing actors/titles and I missed it? Once I figured out there were 2 movies, (I think it took the release of the actual movie posters/I was in like 7th grade lol) I decided to give both a try and..... SPOILER ALERT...... When I watched First Daughter, my jaw dropped, not because the twist was anything that surprising but because it was the exact same twist as Chasing Liberty! Yeah after that, twin films sort of just became an odd thing I would notice but think Hollywood should have some kind of control over studios stealing ideas???

Seeing both of these films come out at basically the exact same time was one of the weirdest eras in cinematic history for me. It was like an episode of the _Twilight Zone,_ but the weird thing in the episode is just really, really minor and basically inconsequential. God, _Volcano_ was shit, though. They couldn't even recognize *LAVA* in that film! Who the hell thought that was good writing?!
I recommend both follow up movies after Olympus Has Fallen. I never knew Olympus has Fallen even was even a film until years after I watched London Has Fallen in theaters, absolutely loved it btw, Also, watched Angel has Fallen in theaters and that was amazing as well in my opinion. I highly recommend you start from Olympus since London to me was way better and it could underwhelm your viewing experience a bit.

There’s actually a legitimate reason why this happens in economics called prisoners dilemma Basically if I held a hotdog stand near my market then my competition would do the same instead closer to the market to undercut and to maintain an advantage I would too eventually we would be going back and forth undercutting each other till we reach a equilibrium where we are equally benefitted And trying to undercut would be a waste a time since It would lead to more undercutting which is why McDonald’s and Burger King and Taco Bell are always in similar locations The same thing for movies in that a person who goes to a theatre to see the next John Wick shares a market with the person who sees Die Hard. Economically usually a film does well when it’s far to avoid competition or close to its competitors premiere

Despite the film having a less serious tone (so more fun and interesting to watch) White House Down, had a more believable premise . Cody forget to mention (or didn’t notice) that a lot of the White House security detail was sent to give aid to the Capital Building bombing, so the White House was easier to take. Also instead of a foreign threat, it was a inside job planned out by elements of the US government (racism actually only playing a small part). Barrack Obama was hardly the only character in the film that mirrored a real life counterpart (the speaker of the house for instance).
Peter Last
Peter Last Aylar önce
@MrArgus11111 not all the of the White House defenders left to aid in the Capital Building bombing and the President’s personal security detail of course stayed with the President. The attackers were led by ex US special forces mercenaries, and were working with a high ranking secret service traitor, and high ranking members of the US government (like I said an inside job). While there were marines shown defending the President in White House Down, I didn’t see any in Olympus has Fallen. It is more believable than than most of the secret service leaving the White House to engage attackers on the lawn, and the South Korean Presidential security detail being completely incompetent (very insulting). Thank goodness the Jan 6 attack wasn’t planned and carried out by traitors in the US military industrial complex.

That's still a dumb premise because the President's security detail isn't going anywhere he doesn't go and wouldn't be just... let go for the day to help with something else no matter what it was. The Marines at the White aren't going anywhere either. So nah, it's still idiotic.

I remember watching White House Down way back in 2013 and how excited I was. looking back now, I feel embarrassing that I fall for this garbage movie lmao. like seriously, it's just so bad. it had the perfect recipe for a Under Siege meets Die Hard type movie as a fun summer blockbuster, but they couldn't even pulled that off. Olympus on the hand is without a doubt one of the best of the last decade, it's so underappreciated, it's simply astonishing how they pulled that movie in a budget of only 70 million. goes to show just how much of a filmmaker's quality of talent actually maters. Antoine Fuqua makes gritty action movies for adults, that's the bottom line

I've seen both of these movies, Olympus in the theatre and W.H.D. when it came to cable. I found Olympus to be entertaining, and the other to be a dud.

I think a similar video on The Last Of Us and Bioshock Infinite would be really interesting. They're not twin games in the traditional sense, but moreso parallel each other in terms of casting, tone, intent and general attitude. They were both praised but only one is still talked about today. Both games are a bit up their own ass but go about achieving their narrarive and pathos goals in different ways. Two Troy Baker angry violent dad sims in the same year with a "subversive female character" is one hell of a coincidence, and I think the discourse surrounding both games is also fascinating, as well as their statuses today. I do think TLOU is worthy of praise but Bioshock Infinite definitely needs a second glance to see how much that game drops the ball, and why exactly critics and audiences were eneamored by it initially.

The first thing they nail is the name itself. the name "Olympus has fallen" definitely sounds more impactful and mythical than just white house down.

I actually thought extensively about this in the summer of 2019, when I was trying to watch both for the first time. I haven't watched this video yet, but I'll write down the conclusion I came to, before I finish watching. At the end of my post, I'll add whatever I've changed my mind about in bold. One is a Roland Emmerich vehicle. It is a very streamlined thriller. It's story parts are serviceable and they do... connect. _At least._ The way it made you feel is what is memorable but not so much the details. Was James Woods even acting? Maybe that was unironically him. The ending doesn't cheapen the collateral lost, but it is goes for a cheesy feel good chord. It was basically the same approach as Emmerich’s Independence Day, but inferior in execution. White House Down struck me as a more "nuanced" thriller. Both Butler _and_ Tatum are static characters, the world develops rather than they do, but Butler arguably _almost_ gets an arc when he finally _finally_ forgives himself for the First Lady dying. Even if annoyingly right before the final scene, you know, like a reasonable person. The inclusion of the entire nuclear arsenal was an escalation of the stakes that seemed a bit Clancyan. (I'll let you be the judge how much it compares, I don't have a dog in this fight, but it does strongly seem to be an influence.) *Afterword: I really like this video, it was way funnier than the one I would have made. I do like calling WHD a "romp" with the president. I hadn't thought of it that way. The tonal difference between the two is as easy as "look, Jamie Foxx is kicking ass" vs "oh, they just kicked the shit out of Melissa Leo and drug her across the floor."*

White House Down at the very least has a pretty funny scene where the President is trying to shoot out the tires of a pursuing vehicle and is missing badly. Be then puts on his glasses, tries again, and has perfect aim. It's a genuinely well done comedic moment. I literally remember nothing else.

Actually the second US mission was loosely pulled from the show Generation Kill. From the bridge fight to the humvee’s rolling through the town.

Not only were there 2 animated movies about insects in the same year, they were the 2nd and 3rd ever feature lenght computer animated movies (The first was Toy Story) That means that at that point 66% of all animated films were about insects

I remember genuinely confusing the two when I saw the trailer for White house down thinking "weren't they just advertising this trash a couple months ago?" it seemed like carbon copies.

I actually vaguely remember WH Down was quite enjoyable in it's silliness, of which it was clearly self-aware, while Olympus took itself so seriously with the ridiculous plot, I found it rather boring.

The one thing I remember vividly from "Olympus has fallen" for whatever reason is when the protag is trying to input the code to disable cerberus, and the guy telling him the code says "hashtag" as the last symbol and protag is confused as hell for a moment. Imagine the entire united states being nuked because some guy was out of touch with what a symbol is called.

He wasn’t out of touch with what the symbol was called. It’s a widely used symbol long before 2007 when the symbol began being called “hashtag” 6 years before this movie. Would hardly say knowing a symbol by all of its name except for its newest rendition is being out of touch

Fun fact. When watching a video and seeing this one in your recommended in that little pop up bar while in full screen on mobile, the video title reads as "When Hollywood made two movies..." I was quite happy to leave it at that and never return. Remaining forever unaware of the knowledge hidden behind the elipses, but thought it wise to share this information with my likeminded peers once I accidentally saw the full title in my recommendations once again. I will still not watch the video on sheer moral principle, but encourage others to enjoy it as they see fit. Have a good day.

I think I've seen Olympus has fallen twice and WHD once. I saw OHF and liked it. Then, a few years later, completely forgetting that these were 2 diff movies, I saw WHD and hated it, thinking "I thought I liked this movie, that's weird". Then several years later, saw OHF again, and thought "yeah, this was nice, I remember liking this". What a mindf*ck 😵‍💫🥴

Twin film, triplets or quadruplets etc is also a phenomenon of Hollywood trying to cash in on themes. You can usually see TV series' also feature themes from movies around the same era as well. Especially a staple in the 80s and 90s meaning you got to see a different variation of the same plot.

This happens often where two very similar movies come out around the same time (Dantes Peak/Volcano. for action volcano movie 1997 Cop Out/The Other guys police partners comedy 2010, ect). I wonder if somewhere very early in development the same pitch gets sold at the same time to multiple studios and they just evolve during development.

Wow, as a writer in Hollywood, you're close, but most of the time it's just subtle theft. The script travels all over Hollywood and if multiple execs want to sound cool, one purchases the script, the other hires a writer to write a script on the same premise. Then you just act like its a cute coincidence. (I really do think Olympus Down came first judging by the smaller budget though).

To be somewhat fair, James Wood's character has a brain tumer which is what's supposidly causing his plan to make sense to him. It's still an absurd plan, but at least it's kind of meant to be.

I think Roland Emmerich is one of those directors who had some huge success early in his career and decided that he was awesome and just refused to learn and grow. So he never takes criticism or recognize his own mistakes and weaknesses, and just continues doing the same things over and over again.

But I mostly just recall Nick Nolte being an absolute lunatic being the most memorable and enjoyable parts. The scene in the woods being the most insane that stands out most.

Olympus has Fallen ended up getting a trilogy and is still one of my favorite action movies, I completely forgot White House Down was a thing. There was actually a interesting redemption story going on in Olympus has Fallen, the tone is significantly better, the takeover/invasion scene is just way better, villains are better, etc. Olympus is a much better movie and seems to have developed a very committed cult following, as I think it deserves. As for the sequels I think they’re okay, nowhere near as good as the first one but still fun.

The whole "blow up all nuclear missiles in their silos" ideas makes even less sense when you consider that NONE OF THOSE NUKES ARE ARMED. I'm pretty sure almost none of them even have their warhead attached until the order is given. I think the idea of Project Cerberus is actually good sense, because in all likelihood they would take the reasonable path and just, you know, detonate a remote bomb on the missile itself that essentially scuttles it before it delivers its payload and allows the warhead to be safely recovered later.

@Rawdraft2 While you might see that happening as a bad thing, I'm a glass-full kinda guy! That would be a wonderful opportunity to use some of my old Army training and dust off the old survival skills. And what did they teach us to do in the Army in the case of the detonation of a nuclear device on that scale? Dig a fucking gigantic hole in the ground and put up a poncho to seal the entrance! Whoever came up with this solution likely knew we'd all be dead about halfway through digging so the upside is at least the soldier got himself a burial. Sorry to kinda bring this up but your comment reminded me of that and there's really no other time better than this to talk about what I've always found so damn amusing. But yeah, it'd completely fuck up so much, the level of devastation so enormous that those not in the blast/outside of it's radiation would still feel it's effects in various ways. But, luckily we have lots of nukes so if they all went off at once the few who did survive would have to contend with displaced swamp people that would make one prefer to have gone with the fate of the blast.

Ah, see, there you go doing that thing where you start thinking about something! Movies like that are made for you to go completely brain-dead and watch in a sort of vegetative, catatonic state, but it's also a great movie for coma patients to enjoy. When watching White House Down the part with the big bad's master plan should have you thinking nothing more than something like, "Bombs go boom?! NOOO!"

This trend is the result of scripts being pitched to a studio, the studio not buying it, but producing a movie with the same premise anyway. This is how we ended up with Deep Space 9 and Babylon 5 JMS pitched the idea to paramout, the only difference was Paramount had the nerve to sue over having its ideas "stolen". I bring this up because like these two movies the difference between these films is not the director, of the studio that made it, but the quality of the writing. I actually liked white house down, it's a dumb action movie out of the 80s.

I remember watching a 2020 korean zombie film called #alive. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I was watching this recap of a zombie movie called “Alone” and thought to myself, “Wait a minute, haven’t I seen this premise before?” Then I did some digging and found out that those two movies came from the EXACT same scriptwriter but with #alive being slightly adapted. The fact that those two movies were also globally released within 1 month from the other is kinda funny.
