I told you back in May that Foxcatcher was the movie too look out for this year (my anticipated movies of 2014) and how early reviews were ecstatic about the direction of Bennett Miller (Moneyball, Capote) and the performances of Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, and Steve Carell. If you saw Miller’s Capote then you know how he can handle dark character driven dramas; Foxcatcher looks like another win for the director.
The intense new trailer is below and showcases a powerful performance by Tatum that looks like nothing he’s done before. If you weren’t taking him seriously before, enjoy. The film also stars Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave, and Anthony Michael Hall.
Foxcatcher opens in theaters on November 14th 2014, watch the trailer below:
First Clip, Poster, Teaser and Reviews for FOXCATCHER starring Steve Carell and Channing Tatum are Amazing
One of my most anticipated movies of 2014 is director Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) psychological drama Foxcatcher. The film tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and their relationship with eccentric millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). The movies premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and the first reviews are nothing short of amazing for the film.
The first clip is below as well showing the astonishing transformation Carell took on for the role, nearly unrecognizable. It’s downright creepy.
The film also stars Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave, and Anthony Michael Hall.
Foxcatcher opens in theaters on November 14th, watch the clip and teaser along with the reviews below:
Channing Tatum is officially signed on to play the card-slinging cajun known as Gambit. On the red carpet for X-Men: Days of Future Past, producer Lauren Shuler Donner was asked by Total Film if Tatum was confirmed to play Gambit after all the rumors and her own desire to see him cast, and she said, “Yes.”
Donner further explained her reasoning behind the casting:
“Well you know he’s a rogue, Channing. He’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that. He’s got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he’ll be great, he’ll be great for Gambit, and he’s a southerner too, he’s not from New Orleans but he is a southerner and he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans.”
People have been talking about Channing Tatum as Gambit for years now. Tatum even auditioned for the part in X-Men: The Last Stand before the character was cut from the film. I think he will make a great Gambit, he’s definitely shown more range as an actor over the last few years. There was speculation that Tatum would join the cast of the upcoming Days of Future Past sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, but he is not yet attached to star in that film (but there could be some kind of post-credits spot).
Gambit will however get his own standalone spinoff; Fox has announced their Marvel dates through 2018, with only one date not attached to a specific movie – July 13, 2018 – which, is likely the Gambit movie. Gambit’s powers are described as “the mutant ability to tap into the potential energy contained within an object and transform it into kinetic energy upon touching it.” In the comics and awesome cartoon series, this usually meant throwing playing cards which would explode on impact. It was cool, trust me if you haven’t seen it.
Taylor Kitsch (John Carter), we hardly knew ye.
THR’s Borys Kit has tweeted the following:
Yes, Channing Tatum will play Gambit. Yes, it will be for a standalone movie. And yes, watch for him to be introduced in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE.

Here’s the video of Donner talking about casting Tatum:
Warner Bros. has set the release date for Magic Mike 2 (or Magic Mike XXL), the sequel will bust a move on July 3, 2015. That summer date is mental right now (Terminator: Genesis, Ant-Man, Despicable Me Minions) so don’t be surprised if there is some shuffling. The indie dramedy is definitely counter viewing for the women, so set your schedules accordingly gentlemen.
Channing Tatum recently told MTV, “I think everyone’s gonna be back, I think, Obviously no one’s deals are done which is always kind of scary.”
One of the best comedies of 2012 is coming back for more in what could be an even funnier outing a second time around in 22 Jump Street [21 Jump Street review]. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller return for the sequel, along with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, who have left their undercover job at high school and have gone off to infiltrate a college campus, naturally.
This trailer is very funny, there is no doubt it will be a hit but I just think I will stop watching the clips and trailers that are coming out to save some of the surprise. [Check out the first red-band here]
The movie also stars Ice Cube, Nick Offerman, Amber Stevens, Peter Stormare, Rob Riggle, Dave Franco, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.
22 Jump Street opens June 13th, watch the red-band below:
Busy directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller are already working on the sequel to The LEGO Movie, and are likely putting finishing touches on their sequel 22 Jump Street which we have the first clip for below. In the funny spot we can see that Tatum’s character, Jenko, has a hard time with accents – something that makes us happy that they didn’t discuss this potential problem prior to meeting up with some thugs.
After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don’t have to just crack the case – they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow from freshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them.

Here is a great new trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s (The Matrix Trilogy, Cloud Atlas) original sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending. If you’re a fan of the siblings like I am, then you are looking forward to this feast for the eyes. I hate the word epic, but I’d use it here for sure; look at the scope of this movie! Sean Bean‘s in it too; I used to just call him Trevelyan (Goldeneye), then Stark (Game of Thrones), and now it’s just Sean Bean. If you die that many times in your roles, you deserve to be full-named.
In Jupiter Ascending Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum plays an ex-military hunter tasked with tracking her down.
The film also stars Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.
Jupiter Ascending opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on July 18th, watch the new trailer and read the official synopsis below:
Here is the first and much anticipated trailer for 22 Jump Street that finds Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) infiltrating a college campus. It looks like it’s picking up right after the first entry which had a lot of laughs and action, so this is good. We see returning faces and new situations that calls for rave dancing apparently, and this time around Jenko is now the jock, and Schmidt is in the art scene.
21 Jump Street was a great movie and you can expect to see more about 22 Jump Street in my upcoming list of anticipated 2014 releases. Plug!
The film also stars Ice Cube, Amber Stevens, Jillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.

Here is the first trailer for Lana and Andy Wachowski’s upcoming sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending that follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a recent Russian immigrant who discovers she has the genetic signature that makes her next in line to be Queen of the Universe. Channing Tatum is a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who must track her down and kiss her. I added that last part, but you know it makes sense.
The Wachowski’s love their sci-fi even if box offices don’t, I’m talking to you Cloud Atlas you wonderfully misunderstood movie. This movie looks like a fun ride with shades of The Matrix to entice the weary. The film also stars Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, James D’Arcy, Tim Pigott-Smith, and Doona Bae.
Jupiter Ascending opens in 3D on July 25, 2014, watch the trailer after the synopsis:
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Last week we showed you the awesome ad from Volvo that showcased Jean Claude Van Damme’s epic split. It didn’t take long for the spoofs to hit the fan, and the first notible entry comes from the Jump Street gang. Here is the send-up featuring Channing Tatum on the set of the sequel below:
