BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Finally, we know the names of Kunis and Tatum's characters, and have some idea what the film's title refers to. Not only is Jupiter Ascending and allusion to the Zodiac, but also the destiny of its title character! Ratcheting up the drama of this adventure tale, Jupiter doesn't know about her prophesized rise to power, but previous reports tell us the extraterrestrial Queen of the Universe does, and so wants Jupiter dead. According to these same early reports, Caine is the Queen's huntsman in what seems to be a sci-fi Snow White tale.
Channing Tatum Talks Die Hard, White House Down, And What He Has In Store For The Magic Mike Franchise
As we spoke, I as struck by how present he was, even when asked questions he'd surely heard before. Nothing he said felt rehearsed, and he seemed freshly excited and sincere as we talked about his amazing year, his hopes for his biggest action role to date, and what he has in mind for 2013. Basically, it was easy to see why so many filmmakers are fighting for his attention.
What do we know of the sequel? Chu is adding massive cast members Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Bruce Willis as the original “Joe.” They’ll join existing franchise stars Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki and Ray Park, who plays Snake Eyes in the above clip.
Because the Matrix name still means a whole lot to studios, the Wachowskis are moving full speed ahead on their next giant project, Jupiter Ascending, a futuristic drama set in a future world where humans have become the lowest species on the intergalactic totem pole. With Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum on board to star and an easy-to-embrace premise (unlike poor Cloud Atlas), Jupiter Ascending has a ton of potential, and Warner Bros. has now shown a huge sign of faith in it
In a little over a month, Rebel Wilson will take the stage to host the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. The Pitch Perfect star enlisted the help of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2012, Channing Tatum, for this new promo for the MTV Movie Awards, which pays homage to Tatum's upcoming action film White House Down.
Whether you liked the opening or not, the effort put into the show was evident. In addition to some warm-up jokes to get the show started, the Family Guy creator was joined by dancers, a chorus and a number of celebrities who took the stage to participate in the opening number. Some behind-the-scenes photos have arrived online, which give us a look at the rehearsals, from Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum's fantastic dance, to Jennifer Lawrence's brief cameo and everything in between.
As is usually the case around here, we already have an opinion as to whom we’d like to see on the stage hosting next year’s Academy Awards. We understand that the “body” has barely cooled, but if the Academy can secure a host soon, they’d have a calendar year to write jokes that are far better than the juvenile and insulting “We Saw Your Boobs.” So, who deserves the gig?
David Fincher and Brad Pitt's working relationship stretches back nearly two decades now. The director and the actor first worked together on 1995's Se7en, and have since reteamed on both Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. For a while it looked as though there was a possibility that they would be reuniting yet again for Fincher's upcoming adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea...
Side Effects is a movie by Steven Soderbergh, so you can pretty much guarantee it's not going to look like you're average off-the-rack thriller. But it's also a twisty and sometimes even scary thriller, the kind of thing that you really can sell to any audience, even if it requires masking some of the weird quirks that make it distinctly Soderbergh's
Rooney Mara plays a woman treated for emotional imbalances by a pioneering psychiatrist (Jude Law). But legal complications arise when the pill prescribed by the doc create, as the title suggests, unexpected (and violent) side effects.
Bruce Willis, the biggest star in the ensemble, takes center stage despite the fact that he wasn’t part of the original film. And Tatum – who’s a bigger star now than he was back then – is showcased as part of the team. The color scheme takes on that hot-and-cold, gold-and-silver contrast.
It's unclear what Redmyane's role will be, and as much as I want him to go full Cloud Atlas transformation and play an alien, it seems more likely he'll be a human as well. Either way, it's great to see the actor gaining a higher profile. His role as Marius should have plenty of emotional young girls swooning after him
