But despite success of Fox's envelope-pushing films, Tatum isn't ready to commit to making Gambit an R-rated film: "We're not quite going there, because I enjoyed Gambit as a kid so I don't want to rule out PG-13."
Channing Tatum found his way into fans’ hearts in the now iconic dance flick "Step Up" as a talented troublemaker who gets a shot at a prestigious dance school.
“I was pushed into doing that movie,” said Tatum in a recent interview with Howard Stern. Suddenly it all makes sense: the only way anyone would intentionally enter into a Stephen Sommers movie would be if they were either contractually obliged or were under the watchful eye of a vigilant sniper. Tied to Paramount, Tatum couldn’t extract himself from the Hasbro toy-shifter but wound up being one of the better things in it (reminder: he tries to punch a hologram).
It stars Channing Tatum (and his pronounced lack of shirt), and it gender bent the hell out of typical teen movie premises. Convinced she could make the boys’ soccer team after her own girls’ team is disbanded, Viola disguises herself as her twin brother Sebastian, goes off to his school, and shares a dorm room with Duke, whom she becomes close with while trying to live her best soccer life. After a few “awkward” – read: sexually charged – moments that allude to the fact that Duke has developed feelings for Viola/Sebastian, she eventually reveals herself as a woman, and, after having a mini tantrum in the wake of being lied to, Duke concedes and the two live happily ever after (or whatever).
It’s a meeting of cross-generational beefcakes as Channing Tatum and George Clooney combine forces in Hail, Caesar!, a new comedy from the Coen brothers that sends up the studio system in 1950s Hollywood. Both play actors in the film: Clooney a marquee swashbuckler starring in the titular Roman epic, and Tatum a tap-dancing musical man who performs a sailor-themed song-and-dance number in a riff on On the Town. While the actors were paired at this past weekend’s L.A. press day for Hail, Caesar!, we asked Tatum, 35, if he was angling to cast Clooney, 54, in the inevitable next installment of his popular male-stripper series, Magic Mike.
Actors love transforming themselves for movie roles and 2015 was no different. Be it with dramatic weight changes, face-distorting prosthetics, or even just heavy make-up, some of our biggest stars did their best to disappear on screen this year. Can you guess who they were?
Leave it to a bunch of mutants — and a certain Merc with a Mouth — to put an exclamation point on Comic-Con. Making a movie about the profane killing machine has been a pet project for Ryan Reynolds for more than a decade.
Yahoo Movies has unearthed some sexy-funny details about the 'Magic Mike XXL' cast — many of which revolve around silly stripper names.
Channing Tatum can’t stand the movie that made him a star. Tatum says he didn’t want to make the movie, but had signed a three-picture deal with Paramount after his film debut in 2005’s Coach Carter. When the studio called him with G.I. Joe, he had “no option” but to take the role he was offered — which wasn’t even the one he wanted to play.
The reviews of Jupiter Ascending are in, and they are ugly. Andy and Lana Wachowski’s latest movie has just a 22 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes at the moment, and it’s unlikely that the number will get much better for what is a bloated, confusing space opera that’s long on computer graphics and short on compelling drama. Here are six of those fun elements that will leave you smiling if you brave the cold (and the reviews) and see Jupiter Ascending this weekend.
Zomg. The first poster for Magic Mike XXL is here, as tweeted by Channing Tatum on Tuesday along with the message, "Look, but you can’t touch…until tomorrow."
Michael Strahan has won over the morning masses as Kelly Ripa’s talk show co-host on Live! And now the former Giants great is adding another line to his résumé: scantily-clad movie star. The NFL Hall of Famer announced this morning on Live! With Kelly and Michael that he will be making an appearance in the upcoming sequel Magic Mike XXL — apparently as one of star Channing Tatum’s fellow strippers. The surprising casting comes after repeat appearances by Tatum on the show where he (presumably jokingly) asked Strahan if he’d appear in the sequel to the 2012 hit.
