Magic Mike 2 Is Happening And Channing Tatum Is Writing It
Two summers ago, Magic Mike wildly overperformed at the box office. It made almost forty million during its opening weekend, and as such, the talk of a sequel began almost immediately, as did the talk of a Broadway play. In the time since, however, the initial excitement has worn off and not a whole lot about the second movie and whether or not it was on or off has been shared publically.
Channing Tatum Has Selected Aspiring Filmmakers To Hand Out This Year's Oscar Statues

X-Men Producer Wants Channing Tatum To Play Gambit In A Future Film
Gavin Hood's legendarily bad X-Men Origins: Wolverine featured the Ragin' Cajun played by Taylor Kitch, but the version of the character had two distinct problems: he couldn't be bothered to speak in his classic New Orleans accent, and he really had no purpose being in the story. The failure was so bad that we really haven't heard anything about the future of Gambit since... that is, until now.

The Year In Movies: A Gif Look-Back At 2013
I'll be recapping the highs and lows of the movie business experienced over the past 12 months. 2013 has been a pretty fascinating time for film, full of reversals of fortune, dizzying successes and even some truly polarizing pictures. So let's look back and GIF out!
Watch Channing Tatum Parody Jean-Claude Van Damme's Volvo Ad On The 22 Jump Street Set
Let the parodies begin! A week ago, Volvo blew our minds by releasing an ad that put actor and martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme between two trucks to demonstrate the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering, and also Van Damme’s ability to turn his body into two right angles.

Your Favorite Movie Star Rated By How He Looks With Long Hair
With the beard and the flowing blonde looks, he looks like the first caveman model, the type of dude who could beat a woolly mammoth to death with his bare hands and then pose for cave drawings at night. That’s not to say he looks unattractive with short hair, but why look like a burly accountant when you have the capability of looking like a Swedish war hero?
Channing Tatum In Talks To Star In Jonathan Levine's Bad Romance
While the trade report is flush with details about the people involved with the project, it's very light on any details regarding what the movie is about - and with a director like Levine at the helm that means that the project could end up falling into a wide variety of categories. The filmmaker made his directorial debut with the horror movie All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, but in the years since he has done an excellent job mixing things up and never doing the same movie twice.

When Bad Movies Happen To Good People: 13 Flops We've Kindly Forgotten
There's a difference between the flops an actor makes early in their career, or even the flops that happen once they're well-established, and the flops that seem to happen just as their careers are picking up steam.

Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher Delayed Until 2014
IndieWire reports Miller and the producers are pushing the planned December release of Foxcatcher off until 2014. This is the point in which I jump up and down, beating my chest, yelling, “Are you kidding me?” Luckily, Sony Pictures wisely released the film’s first trailer and gave us something to bide our time with, and boy is it a doozy.
Channing Tatum And Steve Carell's Oscar Contender Foxcatcher Gets Key December Release
It sounds a drastic shift for Miller, though Capote was a true-crime drama-thriller driven by elaborate characters and top-shelf acting. Carell and Ruffalo certainly is capable of soul-searching performances. The wild card will be Tatum, who absolutely has grown and matured as an actor.

Cobie Smulders is already Agent Maria Hill in the Marvel universe, and now she gets to be Wonder Woman! OK, technically she's only Wonder Woman in Lego form, as she's been added to the upcoming The Lego Movie, which broke the news during their Comic-Con panel today. She's not alone, either-- Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are on board as well, with Tatum voicing Superman (of course) and Hill jumping in as the Green Lantern. Again, entirely in Lego form
