We may not see Michael “Magic Mike” Lane ever again. News had been mostly quiet — too quiet — regarding Magic Mike 3 since XXL tore theaters up last summer. The sequel didn’t sell as many tickets as the first film did, but it performed decently enough, and the diehard Magic Mike fans responded well to the delightful road trip movie. So, with that success in mind, the question is: Why aren’t we going to see Magic Mike XXXL or a Magic Mike 3D? Well, we’re technically going to see a Magic Mike 3, just not in theaters.
Below, Channing Tatum provides an unfortunate Magic Mike 3 update.

Well, now it’s official: Steven Soderbergh is indeed coming out of retirement. Back in February, the “rumor” was that Soderbergh would return to moviemaking with Logan Lucky, but Soderbergh went on to dismiss the story on his always entertaining Twitter feed. However, the project is both real and moving forward, as a few big actors have just signed up for the heist film.

Sadly, we’ve yet to hear much news regarding a potential Magic Mike XXXL. Despite the fact Magic Mike XXL was slightly less successful than its predecessor at the box-office, it was every bit as entertaining as Steven Soderbergh’s film. If for some awful reason we never see if Mike makes it big as a custom furniture designer, then at least we have Magic Mike Live to look forward to, which will make its debut in Las Vegas next year.

The cast of the sequel to last year’s hit spy action adventure Kingsman: The Secret Service got a little more interesting this week, with hopes of music legend Elton John joining the project in some capacity. But now some American flair is being added to the mix to spice things up a bit.
21 Jump Street and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum has just announced that he has joined the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. And when you see the teaser poster he revealed on Twitter and consider what Matthew Vaughn has said about the sequel before, we’re pretty sure we know how Channing Tatum joining Kingsman 2 is going to play out.

X-Men fans have been waiting for years for Gambit to strike out on his own solo adventure, but they may have to stay patient just a little while longer. Channing Tatum‘s superhero adventure is in rewrites right now, and won’t shoot until late 2016. If you’ve mainly been looking forward to Gambit because of director Doug Liman‘s involvement, though, there’s a silver lining to this delay. The schedule shift has freed Liman up to direct The Wall, Amazon Studios’ first-ever original movie. Read More »

One of the many themes floating around in the Coen brothers’ Hail Caesar! is the transcendent power of cinema — the way a really good film can mesmerize, delight, make all your troubles melt away, and awe you with its artistry. And few scenes in the film make a better case for it than the snippet we get to see of “No Dames,” an Anchors Aweigh-style musical number starring the Gene Kelly-esque Burt Gurney, played by Channing Tatum.
It’s a fantastic showcase for Tatum’s talents as a song-and-dance man, and it’ll leave you wishing we could get an actual, full-length musical with him. Now, the good news is that we will. And the even better news is that it’ll also star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, another actor who’s demonstrated some serious moves in the past. Read More »
If you’re a Coen Brothers fan, then you’re probably already excited about the directing and writing duo’s new film coming next month, the comedy Hail, Caesar! starring a cavalcade of great talent. We’ve already seen one trailer showing off the quirky story that takes place in the Golden Age of Hollywood, and now a new trailer shows us even more. But rather than taking the traditional trailer route, they basically use an entire, hilarious scene to sell the movie with a brief montage at the end. And it’s just as fantastic as you’d hope.

2015 officially ends in a couple of days, but it’s hard to mind too much when 2016 looks so promising. For starters, next year brings Hail, Caesar!, the Coen Brothers‘ first film since 2013’s superb Inside Llewyn Davis. The directors’ names alone were enough to put this one on our radar, but the first trailer catapulted it right to the top of our most-anticipated lists.
Set during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the star-studded comedy follows studio fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) over the course of one very busy day. When movie star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is kidnapped by a mysterious organization calling itself The Future, it falls on Eddie to rescue him. The first Hail, Caesar! poster and a new Hail, Caesar! TV spot have just been released, and you can see them both after the jump. Read More »

In news that should come as no surprise the millions of people who went out of their way to avoid Mortdecai and Transcendence, Forbes has compiled its annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood and Johnny Depp is sitting not-so-pretty at number one. And when you look at the raw numbers, no one else is even close.
However, there’s a little more going on here than a great excuse to kick Johnny Depp and his collection of dumb hats while they’re down. The disparity between what “movie stars” are paid and what their movies end up grossing at the box office is shifting. The age of the movie star is effectively over and you can see this reflected in the full list below.
