When will we see the new Gambit, played by Channing Tatum? Some time ago X-Men director Bryan Singer suggested he might show up in the 2016 film X-Men Apocalypse, which Singer is shooting now. But plans change, and based on new statements from Tatum it sounds like Marvel’s energetic Cajun will next appear on screen in his own film, forgoing a cameo in Apocalypse. Read More »

Channing Tatum just seems like an awesome dude. I’ve interviewed him a few times, on the sets of 22 Jump Street and White House Down, and he genuinely is the person you’d expect him to be. Funny, kind, passionate, and totally humble about just how famous he’s become. A great example of this is a new viral video he’s part of by Omaze. That’s the company who creates amazing experiences for fans why buy a chance for a small charitable donation. They’re worked with Star Wars and others and their latest one will give fans a chance to attend the premiere of Magic Mike XXL with Tatum.
So how to promote it? Well, Tatum was made up as an old man at an early screening of Magic Mike XXL, interviewed the fans in disguise, then surprised them by revealing himself. The Magic Mike XXL contest video is below and it’s a whole lot of fun. Read More »

Channing Tatum is going to create a new portrayal of the mutant Gambit for a film centering on the character, with a chance that we’ll see the guy in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse when that film opens in May 2016. We figure this version will pretty much wipe out the one played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, just as Ryan Reynolds’ new version of Deadpool blows away his first turn at the merc in Origins.
Whether or not Gambit pops up in Apocalypse, we now know that the solo film will be some version of a Gambit origin story, as revealed by Channing Tatum. Read More »

After all the excitement surrounding Andy & Lana Wachowski getting another chance at crafting original sci-fi, it was such a disappointment to see what Jupiter Ascending turned out to be. It’s one of those beautiful, mind-blowing disasters like Super Mario Bros. or Battlefield Earth. And while it’s full of stunning imagery and wild characters, none of it makes any damn sense. In fact, the movie is so ridiculous, that the folks at Honest Trailers were begged to skewer this sci-fi debacle, and they don’t pull any punches.

Dolph Lundgren isn’t the kind of guy you’d normally expect to see in a Coen Brothers movie, and he knows it, too. “It was a bit of a shocker,” he says of his role in Hail, Caesar! But now that he’s settled into the part, he has some juicy new details to share about the period comedy, including exactly what Channing Tatum will be doing in it.

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 »

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.
