Where did you watch this movie?

Secret Service Agent Mike Banning has one of the most coveted agency assignments: guarding President Benjamin Walker. But everything changes when, during a horrific car accident, Banning is able to save the president but not the first lady, who plunges to her death. Eighteen months later, Banning is working in a less prestigious post at the U.S. Treasury when a covert group of North Korean terrorists -- posing as the South Korean president's envoy -- infiltrates the White House and takes President Walker and several members of his Cabinet hostage in an underground emergency bunker. Banning slips in undetected and is the only Secret Service agent alive in the White House. He must coordinate with the acting president, Speaker of the House Allan Trumbull; find the president's young son; and try to save the hostages before their leader kills his captives off one by one in order to start another Korean Civil War.

Angela Bassett accepted her role only because she had always wanted to work alongside Morgan Freeman.

As mentioned in the special features, the attack on the White House was planned by former Secret Service agents who were asked how they would attack it if they had to.

Having North Korean terrorists in the plot was widely viewed as prescient when real-world tensions between North Korea and the U.S. emerged in 2013. In an interview, director Antoine Fuqua said he did not want the film's villains to be from the Middle East, because he felt other films had covered that to the point of saturation. North Korea was interesting to him because it was completely closed off to the outside world, and no one really knew what it wanted or was capable of doing.
