BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The X-Men movie series has typically stuck to the task of tackling immense threats to the world. While thatís all well and good for those team dynamic films, itís starting to sound as if Channing Tatum wants to break that mold a bit with his upcoming solo shot in next yearís Gambit. Could we be seeing a different take on the origin film?
New Mutants are now in the mix, but what are the titles that the X-Men franchise can use to compete with both Marvel and DC in the years between now and 2019 and 2020? We have a few ideas...
Channing Tatum just dropped a hint about whether or not we'll see Gambit show up in X-Men: Apocalypse.
X-Men: Apocalypse has one of the biggest ensembles weíve seen in an X-Men film, and anticipation grows. But what will this movie mean for the X-Men Universe. Well, according to writer/producer Simon Kinberg, it is going to change the history of the X-Men cinematic universe forever.†
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.
Even though 2015 doesnít have as many comic book movies coming out, thereís still plenty of exciting news and revelations that will come out. Check out the superhero movie questions that we think will be answered over the next 12 months.
While Gambit hasnít had as many solo stories as Wolverine, who is the only Marvel mutant to get his own movie thus far, there are still plenty of material to draw from his past, whether itís from his tenure as an X-Man or his time with the Thieves Guild. But with all of those stories will come necessary side-characters. When the Gambit movie hits theaters a few years from now, these are the characters who need to show up alongside him.
Wolverine wonít 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 whatís 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 Raginí Cajun. But it many be years before we actually get to see his take on the character.
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
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?
Gambit has been a fan-favorite of the X-books for years. He was portrayed on screen by box-office poison Taylor Kitsch in the standalone film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And while his take on the character wasnít terrible, fans no doubt left that movie thinking that Gambit deserved better.
If Fox wants to extend the brand for years (as is the plan), they are going to have to continue to develop the versions of the X-Men characters introduced in Matthew Vaughnís X-Men: First Class.
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.
Remember back when X-Men Origins: Wolverine suggested that Fox would tell other origin stories? As bad as Origins was, I still believe in the idea.
Colin Firth, who was famous for a long time as the stammering dreamboat of Bridget Jones's Diary or Love, Actually, has been on a serious streak lately, starting with an Oscar-nominated turn in the period drama A Serious Man, leading into the Oscar-winning role in The King's Speech,
Itís not the full trailer. Expect that to come along shortly. But this clip does give you the first look at Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz in action in the story of a disgruntled corporate employee trying to swindle his conniving boss.
CBS Films recently moved the upcoming Coen brother-scripted remake of Gambit to a mysterious date sometime in winter 2013, but the movie is still on target for a release this fall in the UK.
We've already seen some big movies get pushed far back into the release schedule so far in 2012. At the start of the year it was reported that Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, a new action film starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, was moved from March 2, 2012 to January 11, 2013. We then saw another major shift at the start of the summer when it was announced that G.I. Joe: Retaliation...
Seven Psychopaths, the sophomore writing/directing effort from In Bruges filmmaker Martin McDonagh, has been given a November 11, 2012 date. This means that the movie will be going up against the remake of Red Dawn, Disney's Wreck-It Ralph and the Seth Rogen-Barbra Streisand comedy The Guilt Trip.
