Avatar Cast Chris Evans Channing tatum

Avatar stars the somewhat bland Sam Worthington as Jake Sully. But at one point, the role almost went to one of two far more charismatic actors.

gambit director

If Channing Tatum plays his cards right, he could add “director” to his long and colorful resume. But that’s if luck is a lady to Gambit, the long-gestating 20th Century Fox superhero movie that has seen a revolving door of directors while Tatum grew out his hair to no avail. With Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox ongoing, it seemed like Gambit was out for the count. But a new report about Tatum’s departure from his longtime talent agency suggests that Gambit may see action after all.

They’re still planning to make that Gambit movie, huh?

We’re coming up on the three year anniversary of when Channing Tatum took the stage at Comic-Con to join a group photo of all the stars of the X-Men movies, and production has still yet to begin on a film about the card-throwing Cajun mutant.

Smallfoot Trailer

Hello, everyone. I’d like to introduce you to the family film Smallfoot. It’s about a Yeti who goes on a quest to discover if humans really exist. Sounds cute, right? Also, it stars Channing Tatum. But don’t get too excited: you won’t be seeing his abs and dancing skills. Because this film is animated. Sorry, you’ll just have to use your imagination. The Smallfoot trailer is below.

Gambit director

Another one bites the dust. 20th Century Fox’s Gambit movie is now without a director…again. Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker Gore Verbinski is the latest director to part ways with the X-Men spin-off movie, which was rumored to start production this March.

new Blu-ray releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

We’re almost there, folks! 2017 is almost at an end, and as we burn through the holiday season, it’s time to kick back and catch up on some new films you might’ve missed in theaters. That’s where good old Blu-rays come in. Yes, that’s right – there’s more to movies than streaming. Pretty sure I mentioned that before. I’ve put together a jam-packed new Blu-ray round-up for you to close out the year. There’s a lot of good stuff here, including one of Christopher Nolan’s best films; a polarizing horror movie from Darren Aronofsky; a surprisingly honest biopic; a harrowing Kathryn Bigelow drama based on a true story; yet another one of those dang Lego movies; a spy sequel; and a true crime miniseries. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.
