With nothing new coming to theaters for the foreseeable future, Film Club, our weekly movie-discussion series, is switching gears. This week, it enters The Premise Dome, where our critics, A.A. Dowd and Katie Rife, take two movies with similar setups—think Armageddon and Deep Impact, or Smallfoot and Abominable—and duke it out over which is superior. For the inaugural edition of the series, they’re looking at two movies from 2013 about the President Of The United States under siege with only a lone Secret Service agent to protect him. Of course, we’re talking about Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down.
Because The A.V. Club office is closed for the time being, and everyone on staff is social distancing, we’ve recorded episode remotely.
