Magic Mike XXL

Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike was a thoughtful examination of the American dream, but of course the real draw was the gyrating hardbodies on stage. So far, Magic Mike XXL seems to be leaning into that raunchy appeal, with a marketing campaign heavy on half-naked torsos and naughty puns. Not that we’re complaining.

The newest Magic Mike XXL trailer continues in the same vein, commenting on how hard (wink wink) it was to resist showing off all the best parts (nudge nudge) of the movie. Even so, there’s plenty to enjoy here. Feast your eyes on the new Magic Mike XXL trailer after the jump. Read More »

Channing Tatum in Jupiter Ascending

The title “The Forever War” might was well refer to the process of getting the movie made. An adaptation of Joe Haldeman’s 1974 sci-fi novel has been in the works for many years, but now it finally seems to be taking a big step forward.

A bidding war has broken out among major studios for the movie, which has Channing Tatum attached to star, Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) on board to write, and Roy Lee (The Lego Movie) set to produce. Get the latest details on the Forever War movie after the jump.

Gambit

It may be a while yet before the new Ragin’ Cajun makes his big-screen debut. Although Gambit is rumored to appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, new comments from actor Channing Tatum suggest otherwise.

Meanwhile, the Gambit standalone movie is still looking for a director. Rumor has it a few big name directors have been approached already, including Bennett Miller and Darren Aronofsky. More on the Gambit director search and the possible Gambit X-Men Apocalypse cameo after the jump.   Read More »

Ghostbusters shared universe

Today’s announcement of a second new Ghostbusters film, scripted by Drew Pearce, possibly directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and with Channing Tatum anchoring a supposedly “guy-centric” cast, threw a lot of people for a loop. Sony doesn’t even have Paul Feig‘s new Ghostbusters film out yet, so wouldn’t this overshadow that upcoming movie?

But as it turns out, some details were exaggerated in that first report — reportedly, people at Sony say they don’t know where the “guy-centric” description came from — and other background stuff didn’t make it online at all. A new report says the second film would be part of a shared universe with Feig’s movie, with a third team-up film and a possible prequel all designed as part of the package.  Read More »

Paul Feig’s female-centric Ghostbusters are no longer the only ‘busters on the block. Sony has just announced a new division of their company, Ghost Corps, which will take control of the franchise. Lead by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman, the first order of business is to create a male counterpart to the Feig film. They’re eyeing the Russo Brothers to direct, Drew Pierce to write and Channing Tatum to produce and co-star. From there, Sony might do TV shows and more.
