Attention women and gay men everywhere: Your American Dreams are about to come true.
Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that the hotly anticipated sequel Magic Mike XXL will be released July 3, 2015, just in time for Independence Day. The original 2012 film was directed by Steven Soderbergh and starred Channing Tatum, and was loosely based on the actor’s own experiences as a young male dancer. Tatum is currently writing the sequel, which will be directed by Gregory Jacobs, Soderbergh’s assistant on the first film and many of his other work. READ FULL STORY
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are in couples counseling.
Their characters went through a lot in 21 Jump Street – and now that they’re back for a sequel, it’s no surprise the two might need a little help learning to communicate again. Such is the deal when you’re sent back to college to bust a drug ring.
In this newest red band trailer for 22 Jump Street, we see Hill and Tatum re-learn the ins and outs of college life (“hilarious shirt that signals we drink alcohol”) as well as SPRING BREAK. (Is it too much to hope that James Franco’s Alien might make an appearance? Probably.)
In the meantime, watch the NSFW shenanigans below: READ FULL STORY
Channing Tatum will literally be a trailblazer as he is set to become the first man to receive the Trailblazer Award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on April 13.
The award, given by the channel “for boldly paving the way with his unique and diverse path in the film industry,” will be presented by a pregnant Mila Kunis — his co-star in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Jupiter Ascending. Past recipients of the award, now in its third year, have included Emma Watson and Emma Stone. READ FULL STORY
Mila Kunis’ character Jupiter Jones may clean toilets for a living, but she also poses a threat to the reign of the Queen of the Universe thanks to her perfect genetic makeup in the Wachowskis’ latest sci-fi spectacle Jupiter Ascending. Fortunately she has a protector in the form of a glassy-eyed, part-albino/part-wolf Caine (Channing Tatum).
Jonah Hill tries to play football, gets attacked by a giant octopus, and is hit in the face by a beanbag all in the latest trailer for 22 Jump Street. The green-band trailer shows Hill and Channing Tatum at it again, this time posing as college students to bust a drug dealer. “We’re like a power couple,” Tatum tells Hill in the trailer. Yes, yes, you are. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
Break out the dollar bills and practice your dance moves: Magic Mike 2 is coming. For real. Not long after the breakout debut of Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 stripper film, star Channing Tatum dropped hints that a sequel was already in the process of being developed. Though there was nary a script to speak of — just a concept, according to Tatum — the announcement pumped up fans who couldn’t wait to see the actor reunite with co-stars Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, and Alex Pettyfer.
Dueling Everest movies: Jake Gyllenhaal film begins shooting; Sony's 'The Summit' still in base camp
When it comes to ascending a summit, first to the top usually wins. News this week confirmed that Working Title’s Everest, to be released by Universal, is a go. The film, from director Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns) began production Monday in Italy, with Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke and John Hawkes playing four of the climbers who attempted the disastrous 1996 ascent of Mount Everest in the Himalayas, only to be thwarted with terrible conditions that led to the loss of many lives.
Now that this film is in production, will it kill a competing Everest film at Sony?
Sony declined to comment on its project, which takes place in the 1920s and chronicles British climber George Mallory’s attempts to scale the world’s tallest mountain. One source close to the production says the studio is still committed to the movie, but the film, which Doug Liman (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) is set to direct after finishing the upcoming Tom Cruise-starrer Edge of Tomorrow, will no longer begin production in the next couple of months as originally planned.
Rather, the start date on the film — which now carries the title The Summit and still has Tom Hardy (Inception) attached to play Mallory and Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6) to play his Australian rival George Finch — has been pushed to either early summer or perhaps even to 2015.
According to another source, the studio’s hesitation on the project centers on concern over how to sell the the film domestically. Overseas, the film’s prospects appear much healthier considering the storyline and international cast but in the U.S. audiences are often reluctant to give period films a chance.
Complicating matters, a schedule change may force star Hardy to drop out. As reported earlier, Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) is still interested in the lead role should Hardy need to leave.
Sony is also being more cost conscious after a rough 2013 and launching a $60 million movie with a competing film in the pipeline may not look too appealing. Last summer the studio was on the wrong end of dueling White House disaster movies. Their White House Down with Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx opened at the end of June, earning $73 million. It had followed Film District’s Olympus Has Fallen, which opened in March and grossed $98 million.
Still, sources close to the project says the film, which was scripted by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air), is still important to the studio.
The trick now is to keep that enthusiasm from falling off the mountain.
To quote Nick Offerman’s meta Deputy Chief Hardy in the official red-band trailer for 22 Jump Street: “Nobody gave a sh– about the Jump Street reboot, but you got lucky. So now, this department has invested a lot of money to make sure Jump Street keeps going.”
And keep going it will after the surprising success of the 21 Jump Street reboot (and Channing Tatum as a comedic actor) last year, the boys are back to bust up another drug ring, this time as undergrads. Perhaps Jenko and Schmidt, a.k.a. almost-30-year-old Jonah Hill and 33-year-old Channing Tatum, will have a better time blending into the collegiate lifestyle than they did in high school. But according to one student — “You look old as sh– to be here” — perhaps not.
Set perfectly to Wallpaper.’s #STUPiDFACEDD, the trailer shows Ice Cube, Rob Riggle and Dave Franco also returning, the latter two sharing a jail cell (and a very special one-sided relationship). Check out the joke-filled trailer below:
