BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Channing Tatum might now be best known for playing the dumb-as-a-stump undercover cop Greg Jenko in the 21 Jump Street movies, but audiences are about to find out if he can convincingly pull off playing an absolute genius.
I could dig, analyze and appreciate Foxcatcher for years. All of that being said, Foxcatcher is remarkable. It is a stirring thesis about how wealthy power brokers manipulate situations, and how those without influence are seduced.
It was just a couple weeks ago that Channing Tatum was back in theaters once again playing the mentally deficient Officer Greg Jenko and stirring up laughs in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's 22 Jump Street. His second live action film of 2014, as you can see from the brand new poster you see above, won't be quite as smile-inducing.
This seems like a fantastic assemblage of talents, especially giving the Coens a few familiar faces, and some exciting new players (like Tatum and Fiennes) who are proving capable of comedy in movies by the likes of Wes Anderson, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
With the cast of 22 Jump Street currently making the press rounds, MTV took the opportunity to ask Channing Tatum about his possible first superhero movie. The actor confirmed that there have been discussions about him taking the part, but that there are still a lot of things that need to be done before the film can actually be made
As if the How To Train Your Dragon franchise wasn't enough of a killer app against Disney's best friend, Fox is now showing us our first glimpse at the Guillermo Del Toro produced film “The Book of Life.” The results look extremely promising.
Channing Tatum spoke candidly about Steven Soderbergh and soon-to-shoot Magic Mike XXL, confessing that the Magic Mike director would not only be the sequel's cinematographer, but also its camera operator and film editor.
The question is, when would we see Channing Tatum's Gambit? Given that Tatum is an A-List actor, it seems unlikely he'd play a bit role in X-Men: Apocalypse. Could Fox be planning Gambit as a starring vehicle for Tatum, possibly for that unrevealed 2018 release date?
Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin will be teaming up with producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron for the untitled undercover drama. Based on a true story, this unnamed project will star Channing Tatum as an average family man who risks everything to go undercover to topple 1970s America's most dangerous mob boss.
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.
Last year marked the first time that aspiring filmmakers carried this honor, and its being continued this year with some help from Channing Tatum.
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.
In case you don't recognize him underneath all of the makeup and facial hair, that's star Channing Tatum in full action mode as the film's male lead. He plays a character named Caine, a genetically engineered hunter who works to protect a young woman (Mila Kunis) on Earth from the evil Queen of the Universe.
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!
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. T
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?
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.
Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna and Christina Applegate have signed on to topline the film, while Ice Cube, Ron Perlman, Cheech Marin, and Danny Trejo will co-star...
