The new trailer for "White House Down" includes much of the same terrifying imagery presented in the film's first teaser -- the U.S. Capitol exploding from the inside out, for instance -- but with one key addition: jokes. The latest look at Roland Emmerich's upcoming summer blockbuster shines a spotlight on the interaction between stars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.

"It has a lot of humor, a lot of great characters, and -- at the center -- this relationship between an ex-soldier who wants to become a Secret Service agent (Tatum) but gets denied, and the President of the United States (Foxx)," Emmerich told HuffPost Entertainment when the first "White House Down" trailer debuted in March.
