The last Jupiter Ascending trailer got mixed reviews when it hit in December, with some folks rolling their eyes at the sci-fi cliches and others enchanted by the Wachowskis‘ creativity and ambition. Today a new Japanese promo has hit for the epic adventure, and while it won’t change any skeptical minds, those who loved the last one will probably be thrilled to see more.
Mila Kunis stars as the Jupiter of the title, a lowly cleaning lady down on Earth. Her life is forever changed when she’s tracked down by an albino wolf-man from outer space (Channing Tatum), because that tends to happen when one is tracked down by an albino wolf-man from outer space. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

Two years ago, if someone said a sequel to Magic Mike would be in the works, they’d have been laughed at. Before the film’s release, most thought Steven Soderbergh‘s tale of male stripping in Florida was nothing but Striptease with dudes, nothing but ninety minutes of Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey dancing with their shirts off.
Then the film was released and it was seen to be an entertaining, provocative look at the American working class. Yes, there was stripping, and lots of shirtless men, but the script, performances and direction made it much more than that. Magic Mike was a surprise hit, grossing almost $115 million in the U.S. Producer/star Channing Tatum said he’d eventually make a sequel.
The film also helped catapult Tatum to superstar status so he’s been pretty busy as of late. White House Down, Side Effects, Jupiter Ascending, Foxcatcher and 22 Jump Street are just some of the film’s he’s shot since. But now, almost two years since the release, Tatum has sat down to write Magic Mike 2. And he announced it in the most peculiar of ways. Read More »

While doing press for White House Down last year, future Lego Superman Channing Tatum revealed that he’d love to play the X-Man Gambit someday. At the time, we figured it was just idle daydreaming on his part. Actors talk all the time about their fantasy roles, and that doesn’t mean they’ll ever get said roles.
But now, that dream may be inching toward reality. At least one person agrees with Tatum’s fantasy-casting of himself as the Ragin’ Cajun, and it’s someone with a bit more power to make it happen. X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has said that she’s “dying” to make a Gambit film with Tatum, but that she still needs to convince Fox. Hit the jump to read her comments.

As directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller start to do the press rounds for their new effort, The LEGO Movie, the marketing push is just starting to roll on their next one, 22 Jump Street.
As we’ve seen in trailers, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum return as earnest but slightly bumbling cops, with Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts helping out and/or getting in their way. One of the best trailer shots so far has the two standing on a car, pumping pistols in the air. That shot has now been repurposed as a pretty good poster, which you can see below. Read More »
For some of us here, Jupiter Ascending, the new film from Andy and Lana Wachowski, is among the most anticipated films of 2014. It doesn’t rank quite that high for me, but I’m still curious to see what the siblings do with a huge space opera that follows a cleaning lady from Earth who is pulled into cosmic intrigue when otherworldly powers find that her DNA puts her in line for a position of great power in the universe.
We’ve seen a trailer for the film, and now there’s a new image that gives us a good look at the hybrid hunter played by Channing Tatum. Read More »

When marketing an R-rated comedy like the upcoming 22 Jump Street, the red-band trailer is a great tool. It quickly and easily gives the audiences what they want: vulgarity, nudity, violence and any number of other inappropriate things the final film will have. For the most part, though, those trailers largely live online.
When you head to the theater this weekend to see Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, here’s the version of the 22 Jump Street trailer you’ll see. The green band. It’s still incredibly funny, just with less cursing. In the place of that, though, is a bunch of new footage from the sequel, out June 13. Check it out below. Read More »
