Adrianne Palicki talks 'tough girl' Lady Jaye in 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'

Adrianne Palicki is the only girl on a team full of guys in the upcoming G.I. Joe: Retaliation, playing Lady Jaye, the self-described “intelligence” of the group alongside Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis. (She also doubles as a weapons expert.) EW sat down with Palicki last night at AXE’s Facescore event, where the actress squared off against Denver Linebacker Von Miller in a series of challenges including a walk-off and a Wii snowboarding battle. In case you were wondering, Palicki won.

Before the battle, Palicki previewed some of what’s to come later this month with G.I. Joe — including her SEAL-approved workouts and those reported reshoots.

Box office update: Soderbergh's 'Side Effects' is no match for 'Identity Thief'

Identity Thief persevered in spite of winter storm Nemo, with an $11.2 million Friday opening. The R-rated Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy vehicle from director Seth Gordon opened wide in 3,141 theaters, and may be on track for a $35 million weekend. Bateman and Gordon scored big with Horrible Bosses, which had a $9.9 million Friday opening in July and went on to gross $117.5 million domestically. This is McCarthy’s first starring role, and could bode well for The Heat, which was pushed back to a June release. McCarthy also recently started a production company with her husband Ben Falcone and already has three projects in the works.

Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects fared less well, opening Friday in 2,605 theaters at $2.8 million–almost exactly on track with Soderbergh’s Haywire, which opened in late January 2012 with a $2.9 million Friday and a $8.4 million weekend. Channing Tatum’s last three movies, 21 Jump Street (March), The Vow (February), and Magic Mike (June), all had Friday grosses exceeding $10 million. Rooney Mara’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opened decently the weekend before Christmas in 2011, but fizzled after that.

The area affected by Nemo represents about 12% of the country’s box office. AMC alone closed 43 theaters in the northeast corridor including in Boston, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. New York theaters will attempt to open Saturday night, but Boston theaters are planning to remain closed through Sunday.

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' trailer: The sequel is back, now with 20% more Channing Tatum

G.I. Joe: Retaliation was famously slated to hit theaters in June, a release date that would have made it the fifth movie starring emergent superstar Channing Tatum. Just one problem: as the early trailers for Retaliation implied, Tatum wasn’t in the movie very much. That, along with the apparent thirst for some of that sweet 3-D cash, led Paramount to push the toy-soldier sequel into 2013. A new trailer for the movie has just arrived, and curiously, it’s not all that different from the Retaliation trailer that appeared almost exactly a year ago. It does feature a new scene with Channing Tatum, a joke about North Korea, and notably less dubstep. So it’s got that going for it. Which is nice. Watch the new trailer: READ FULL STORY

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): Inside Joe Manganiello's five favorite 'Magic Mike' press tour moments

After the stripping numbers (which EW thoroughly dissected with the choreographer, costume designer, and music supervisor when the movie hit theaters last summer), what people probably remember most about Magic Mike is costar Joe Manganiello’s gloriously game, body roll-filled press tour. “There were a lot of moments where I was backstage right after whatever went down lookin’ at my publicist, Lisa [Perkins], like, I’m a classically-trained actor. What the f— am I doing? What are we doing? Please tell me I’m not insane and out of my mind. And Lisa would look at me and just go, ‘You are insane. You are out of your mind. But it’s working,’” Manganiello recalls, laughing. “It was one of those things where I’m either gonna look like the biggest a—hole that’s ever lived, or this is gonna be huge. There’s something magical that’s gonna happen, or I’m never gonna be allowed out of the house again. Thank god it went the way that we hoped.” Here, Manganiello takes us inside his highlights.

Entertainers of the Year: Channing Tatum

After a racking up three hit movies — The Vow, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike — in under six months, it’s no wonder Channing Tatum is still trying to wrap his head around 2012. “It’s just more insane than I can ever try to explain,” says the actor, 32, who earned his place among EW’s Entertainers of the Year for proving that he can pull off comedy, action, and his pants with equal aplomb. “So many times I’ll be at the end of a movie and think, ‘Okay, maybe I’ll take vacation.’ But there’s always that thing in the back of my head bugging me. You feel like a shark: If you stop swimming you’ll die — especially in this business. And I just like working.”

Channing Tatum to take a break from acting in 2013

have about three to four ideas that we love that are all in the hopper. By the end of next year, we’re going to shut things down and write the first thing that we’re going to direct,” says Tatum, who has been developing a Magic Mike sequel and an Evel Knievel biopic with Carolin. “We’re going to be like, alright, no more acting parts for a minute, let’s take a few and really get caring about that section of our career.” READ FULL STORY

Steven Soderbergh's 'Side Effects': A 'Hitchcock mindf--' says writer Scott Z. Burns

In the noir-ish trailer for Side Effects – the medical thriller from director Steven Soderbergh starring Channing Tatum, Rooney Mara, and Jude Law — a young woman (Mara) is suspected of a murder that has frightening implications for the makers of her mood-altering prescription medication. Or at least, that’s what it looks like. “There’s a lot more to it than that,” says screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, who previously teamed up with Soderbergh on Contagion and The Informant. “If you believe that’s what the trailer says, I’m not going to disabuse you of that. But I think there’s two or three more layers on top of that.” According to Burns, those layers include hints of Roman Polanski, Vladimir Nabokov, and Alfred Hitchcock. In other words, get ready to be more than a little disturbed.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Where did the idea for Side Effects come from?
SCOTT Z. BURNS:
Antidepressants are some of the leading-selling drugs in the country. When you start looking around the world at your friends, your family members who struggle with depression, who take these drugs — and the fact that the medical community doesn’t even know how these drugs work, it becomes an area that I think is ripe for some pretty interesting stories.

What was your first step in dramatizing that?
I’m not going to give you a lot of plot…  There’s a certain kind of complexity to human behavior, and when you layer in the fact that now we have the camouflage of drugs that can change your mood state, that was where we started. We wanted to make a movie that was sort of in the tradition of a Hitchcock mindf—.

Were any other movies or filmmakers on your mind while you were writing this?
The Roman Polanski movie from the 1960s, Repulsion. The operating principle in that it’s really hard to know what goes on inside another person. So for me, there was a bit of Repulsion, there’s a bit of Lolita going on.

In what way?
This was in some ways a kindred spirit and sequel to what Nabokov may have been doing in Lolita. Obviously Rooney isn’t that young; she’s not a teenager in this movie. But I think that when girls get sexualized as teenagers and then they get older, there’s a whole set of behaviors that they learn that allow them to manipulate the world around them. And they’re given those tools largely by men who want to be manipulated.

Side Effects arrives in theaters Feb. 8.
