The first part of the trailer shows a plethora of explosions and crashes, including the White House and Air Force One. Imposed on the screen is a quote from Abraham Lincoln, stating that we are our own undoing.
“Tell me how much time I have?” is the first actual dialogue from the movie, being heard around the 1:39 minute mark. Of course, not much time because more explosions continue, showing Tatum kicking ass and protecting Jamie Foxx.
The trailer doesn’t shed much light on the plot of the movie. But it is directed by Roland Emmerich , so a plot is not necessary. What Emmerich is trying to do is see how much stuff he can blow up in a span of the movie, and by the looks at the trailer, they leave no Washington monument unscathed.
Come June you will be able to judge for yourself.
