The critics agree: the only thing more enjoyable than a good movie is a good movie Easter egg. And today, we have an enormous egg to share with you from this summer’s biggest hit, White House Down.
In White House Down, we learn that U.S. Capitol Police Officer John Cale (played by Channing Tatum) used to be a musician and producer. This little nugget is dropped in an intimate moment when Cale offers to produce a hip-hop record for U.S. President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx). This is a seemingly forgettable instance of character depth, right?
Columbia Pictures went above and beyond in fleshing out John Cale’s unique and deep personal history. As such, they’ve released a number of albums that the character Cale made in his fictitious past. Several are still available for purchase at Amazon:
These records promise to be very rare, so we here at The Critics Agree suggest you snap them up immediately. We might have some real collectors’ items on our hands here.
We picked up our copies already, and while the music is garbage, the effort alone is worth your attention.
White House Down is a movie that continues to make you think and wonder weeks and even months since its release.
