It was established some time ago that Steven Soderbergh would not be directing Magic Mike XXL. After lots of rumor and speculation, it was announced earlier this spring that Soderbergh’s longtime first assistant director Gregory Jacobs would be taking over the reins instead.
But that doesn’t mean Soderbergh isn’t involved. To the contrary, he sounds about as involved as he could possibly be without actually directing the thing himself. Hit the jump to find out just what Soderbergh will be doing on the stripper sequel.

It’s far too early to throw around phrases like “best of the year.” But it’s not too early for the phrase “best of Cannes,” and superlative reviews for Foxcatcher suggest that the Bennett Miller drama has already earned that label.
Steve Carell reportedly puts in a career-changing performance as eccentric millionaire John du Pont, who becomes the benefactor to two American wrestlers — brothers Dave (Mark Ruffalo) and Mark Schulz (Channing Tatum). The real-life tragedy that took place between them makes for a sensational story, but Foxcatcher, by all accounts, is more of a slow burn, and all the better for it.
Hit the jump to get the Foxcatcher early buzz, plus a new teaser.

Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher was supposed to be a contender during the last awards season, but then Sony Pictures Classics yanked it off the calendar to give the filmmakers more time. So it’s opening this fall instead, and now the first Foxcatcher clip has arrived to show off the fruits of their labor.
Steve Carell stars as John du Pont, real-life heir to the DuPont chemical fortune, who takes a world-class wrestler named Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) under his wing. Their relationship becomes twisted as du Pont manipulates the younger man and displays increasingly erratic behavior. Mark Ruffalo plays Schultz’s brother Dave, also a wrestler. Watch the Foxcatcher clip after the jump.

I can’t tell you what’s in the new 22 Jump Street trailer. I won’t watch it. Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum all returning for the sequel to one of my favorite movies of 2012? I was sold before cameras began rolling. Then the first couple trailers showed the same kind of self-reference, smarts and laughs we’ve come to expect from the franchise. So the hooks were in. At that point, I didn’t want to see any more, as comedy trailers tend to ruin many jokes in a film.
But this is a new 22 Jump Street trailer, from the UK, and just skimming through it you can tell there is a lot of new footage in here. In fact, it’s mostly new footage. If you aren’t as sold or excited as I am, you should definitely check it out. Or even if you are and can’t contain yourself, I get that too. Read More »
