BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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...
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. Just when audiences are starting to get to know and like an actor, or when Oscar buzz or "A-list star" titles start floating around, out comes some awful disaster that's so bad, everyone chooses to simply forget about it and move on
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.
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
Probably not much of a surprise for anyone who caught wind of his incredible Avengers paycheck-- Robert Downey Jr. is the highest-paid actor in Hollywood according to Forbes, having made $75 million between June of last year and this year
Channing Tatum stars as a genetically engineered bounty hunter called Caine, who has been hired by the Queen of the Universe to track down Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a lowly Russian maid who might be destined to threaten her throne.
Katey and Sean-- who have already, full disclosure, declared their love for the movie in front of the actual White House-- try to figure it out below. Do we blame Olympus Has Fallen? The Heat? Is it all Channing Tatum's fault? Help us solve the mystery
Above you can watch my conversation with Tatum and Foxx, in which I ask them about the secret to their bromance-- it involves Foxx taking over a DJ booth at a party in Mexico-- and why Tatum risks his neck over and over again on the set to make sure that he does his own stunts. Foxx-- a smart veteran of the movie business-- says he's perfectly happy to let his stunt double earn his paycheck
Alright, people, I don't know what else we can possibly give you. It's just before the Fourth of July, and you need something to see at the movies. Roland Emmerich, the guy who brought you Independence Day is back, and he's once again blowing up the White House. And the Capitol. And he's got Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as the President, for God's sake!) running around trying to stop the terrorists who did it
I am just now getting used to viewing Channing Tatum as a reliable actor. Early roles in forgettable trash like Dear John and Stop-Loss told me to stop paying attention to Tatum as a performer, but recent roles in The Vow, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street have me singing a different tune. But now you say I have to start contemplating a world where Tatum is a respected director as well?
We've been pretending for months now that this February's A Good Day to Die Hard never actually happened, and it's about to get a whole lot easier to let amnesia protect the memory of John McClane. Well, really, it's Channing Tatum who will be doing it. In this new four-minute trailer for White House Down, you can see more of what's been promised by months
Star Channing Tatum showed that he has a knack for playing a funny hero with his performance in 21 Jump Street, and I have to say I enjoyed what we see from him here. The talking he does to himself before running into the library is very John McClane-esque...
When it comes to remakes, sometimes the hardest part is finding actors to play parts once made famous by the most iconic actors of all time. Such is the case with Guys and Dolls. While Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 1955 movie musical wasn't the original incarnation of the story, the roles of Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit were played to perfection by Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
