BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t holding back on including a variety of familiar mutant faces. We’ve learned that three big actors have been added to the cast to play especially popular heroes from the world of X-Men.
Earlier this afternoon, the movie world got a bit of a shock when it was revealed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors are going to make their own Ghostbusters film that is looking to have Channing Tatum star. As it turns out, however, the 22 Jump Street actor may not be the only A-lister to become involved with the project.
It’s only been a short while since we got word of the latest Ghostbusters reboot featuring a stellar, all-female cast. And now, just as the excitement from their first announcement started to settle, Sony just announced that there will indeed be an all-male Ghostbusters reboot as well.
22 Jump Street was one crazy production. When you have the dynamic duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm, shenanigans are expected. What wasn’t, though, was that time these two torched the end zone of a football field. But it’s cool, ‘cause it was an accident.
Channing Tatum is used to wearing all sorts of, shall we say, eccentric outfits. But there is one he calls “the devil’s condom.”
For all the Channing Tatum lovers out there, we’ve got some great news: the first Magic Mike XXL trailer will drop online tomorrow! To whet your appetite, Tatum has unleashed the first Magic Mike XXL poster unto the world.
It was revealed yesterday that the surprise screening at this year’s Sundance was the Wachowski’s highly anticipated sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending — which is kind of odd because you don’t normally think of a film requiring 3D glasses as the secret screening of Sundance. Nevertheless, this was the first time anyone has seen this film. Unfortunately, the reception was not what Warner Bros. was hoping for (i.e. it was really bad).
After he publicly excoriated the film, Foxcatcher main character, Mark Schultz now seems to be more accepting of the film, expressing love and adulation. What brought about this 180 degree turn?
Thanks to the fact that 2014 was such a brilliant year for film, practically every Academy Award category this year can be seen as a tight race – but there is one that really stands above them all. The crop of Best Actor candidates this year was absolutely incredible, to the point where you almost wish they changed the rules to allow 10 nominations instead of the normal five.
Remember that Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum? It looks like it's happening way sooner than anyone had thought. Peek at the new date after the jump.
And the Foxcatcher fiasco continues. Warner Bros. had to publicly apologize to Sony, the studio behind Foxcatcher, after one of its employees slammed the film over Twitter.
SPOILER ALERT: The following article contains light spoilers for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher. If you haven't seen the film and don't wish to be spoiled, please click over to another one of our wonderful articles.
Foxcatcher is in theaters now, and is earning raves for Miller’s direction, as well as for the acting performances of the three male leads – Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo. Could this controversy start to damage the film’s reputation? Or is it all a massive misunderstanding?
Adam Sandler didn't exactly have the greatest 2014. Blended performed nowhere near the level of the actor's past big releases, and both of his recent attempts at more serious fair - Men, Women & Children and The Cobbler - got largely negative responses following their premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Celebrities will go to great lengths to remain hidden from the public eye, and the new trend seems to be going completely incognito while surrounded by the hordes of thousands. Take Channing Tatum, for example.
I’m legitimately comforted by the fact that the ultra-serious dude from Foxcatcher -- the guy who appears like he could snap my neck like a twig – sends hilariously pompous emails to his friends and colleagues when he’s experiencing a true upbeat moment in his professional life.
The Daily Beast continues to mine material out of countless Sony emails, and this time unearths a series of conversations between Channing Tatum and Sony Chair Amy Pascal about the 21 Jump Street star kick-starting a Ghostbusters spinoff with himself and Chris Pratt in the leads.
The Wall Street Journal shares a few details, even though nothing is set in stone. They say that Men In Black stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones “would not be included in the movie, at least in prominent roles.” They also dangle the tease that Jump Street geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller would produce this mash up event, and “may direct it.”
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have been talking about 23 Jump Street. And while they have admitted that it is currently in development, they are still a little cagey about it actually making it to the big screen.
Quentin Tarantino has proven time and time again throughout his career that he has absolutely fantastic casting sensibilities, and his upcoming western The Hateful Eight doesn't look like it will be breaking that tradition. The Academy Award-winning director has already brought together an amazing ensemble for the film, but today it looks like he's adding yet another notable name: Channing Tatum.
This year may find Channing Tatum in the in his very fist Oscar campaign. The actor's performance in Bennett Miller's upcoming sports drama Foxcatcher has been earning rave reviews, and while most of us haven't had the chance to actually see the movie yet, his passion and intensity getting into the role is very much apparent in this newly revealed behind the scenes story.
Wolverine won’t be the only X-Men character to get a solo film. The card-throwing, Southern charmer Gambit is officially getting his own movie! Read all about what’s in store for the glowing-eyed mutant.
While the X-Men film franchise moves forward with projects like X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and a rumored live-action TV show, one aspect of the series have been relatively quiet recently. Back in May, reports indicated that Channing Tatum would play Gambit in a standalone movie, the actor repeatedly expressing his interest in playing the Ragin’ Cajun. But it many be years before we actually get to see his take on the character.
They met on the set of Step Up. Since then, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum married, had a baby, and now they're collaborating once more on Magic Mike XXL. But not in the way you might suspect.
Magic Mike was one of 2012’s most surprising hits, as it ultimately grossed close to $170 million from a measly budget of just $7 million. As is Hollywood’s want when a film is unexpectedly successful, a sequel was instantly requested, and Channing Tatum, who both inspired, produced and starred in the original, was only happy to oblige. Now, just over two summers after the original was released, the full, official synopsis for its follow-up, Magic Mike XXL, has been unveiled too.
