Could Channing Tatum head up a new Ghostbusters movie?
Sony Picture is planning an all-male Ghostbusters movie as a counterpart to Paul Feig's film, which begins production with Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig in June. Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd now have offices at the studio to broaden the action-comedy franchise.
Ivan Reitman wants Channing Tatum to play one of the Ghostbusters in an all-male cast
According to Deadline, Reitman is looking to recruit Joe and Anthony Russo to direct, with Iron Man scribe Drew Pearce potentially writing the script. The hope is also for Channing Tatum to play one of the Ghostbusters in the film.

Jennifer Aniston wins the Montecito while Amy Poehler takes this year's Hasty Pudding. The Magic Mike XXL trailer promises lots of beefcake, The Cobbler offers laughs, Lost River appears darkly emotive, and animated SpongeBob and Minions adventures look like a lot of fun...
She may not be up for an Oscar this year, but Jennifer Aniston was awarded the Montecito Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, which is currently running in California. She looked sleek and starry as she accepted the award.
The Wachowski's release 'Jupiter Ascending' following a long delay, yet does it live up to their reputation.
The Wachowskis aren't the most prolific filmmakers, which is perhaps why their movies feel like events. When Warner Brothers shifted the release of their new sci-fi adventure 'Jupiter Ascending' back six months from last summer to this weekend, everyone smelled a stinker. But then this is Lana and Andy Wachowski, who have never made a truly awful movie. Although some might argue that point.
The siblings burst onto the scene in 1996 with 'Bound', an inventively moody thriller starring Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon as lovers who plot an elaborate heist. The film had great reviews, and has become a cult classic. Then three years later they released 'The Matrix', reinventing special effects with visually jaw-dropping gimmicks like bullet time. Although the plot itself wasn't terribly original, audiences flocked to see the film in record numbers, and also made hits of the less-beloved sequels 'The Matrix Reloaded' and 'The Matrix Revolutions', both released in 2003.

Three years after bowing out of the stripper career, Magic Mike (Channing Tatum), returns to his friends at the Kings of Tampa, all of whom also seem prepared to call an end to their careers. But when the prospect of going out in style arises, the friends get the band back together and embark on a stripping road trip through Jacksonville and Savannah, heading towards one final performance at Myrtle Beach. Here, the Kings of Tampa prepare for one final blow-out show with Magic Mike.
Continue: Magic Mike XXL - Teaser Trailer
Filmmaking siblings Lana and Andy Wachowski never do anything by halves. The Matrix was a genre-changing blockbuster followed by two head-scratching sequels that ramped everything up a bit too much. Speed Racer was simply too much eye-candy for most viewers. And Cloud Atlas' intertwined storylines left audiences both exhausted and exhilarated. Now they've taken on the space action adventure with unfettered gusto, creating an utterly bonkers story that can't help but keep us thoroughly entertained.
So it turns out that Jupiter (Mila Kunis), an immigrant cleaner in Chicago, is actually the recurrence of a powerful matriarch whose empire runs the universe as a big business. Her three children (Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton) are tussling over control, because their mother's re-appearance changes their inheritance rights. Chased by bounty hunters, Jupiter is rescued by Caine (Channing Tatum) and his cohort Stinger (Sean Bean), who help her navigate the complex galactic society to claim her genetic rights. But each of the three children has plans for her. And as she zips back and forth across the universe, Jupiter realises that she's going to need to rise to the occasion if she wants to save herself. And Earth.
The Wachowskis clearly understand that the story is far too complicated to make much sense, so they only provide enough information to hold the audience's interest. Large plot threads and characters pop up and disappear at random, while Jupiter's own journey lurches through a series of contrived set-pieces and tense encounters that feel oddly unresolved. But none of that really matters, because the film is infused with a sardonic sense of humour that makes it enjoyable. Even the bad guys are intriguing; there's not much Redmayne can do with his leather-trousered grump, but at least he goes for it. Kunis has a great time with Jupiter's continual sexy costume changes, while Tatum performs a series of action scenes with his shirt off for no real reason. All of the cast members dive in without hesitation, using sheer charisma to make the characters a lot of fun to watch.

'Jupiter Ascending' is almost here: but was it worth the wait?
We've been worried about Jupiter Ascending since Cloud Atlas and got even more worried when Universal delayed it for about a year to complete "over 2,000 special effects shots." Oh no.
Anyway, now it's here. And it tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born "under the night sky", with signs predicting she was destined for great things. But wait! Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter arrives on Earth to track her down and Jupiter begins to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her.

Kunis gave birth to Wyatt Isabelle in October.
Its been just four months since Mila Kunis and fiancée Ashton Kutcher welcomed their first child, daughter Wyatt Isabelle, but the new mom has already got herself back on the red carpet. Appearing at the Los Angeles premiere of her latest movie Jupiter Ascending, Kunis looked stunning in her first big public appearance since baby Wyatt’s arrival.
Kunis and co-stars Channing Tatum, Sean Bean and David Ajala on the red carpet
Kunis was dressed in a black strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown, which featured a corset top and a full layered skirt. The 31 year old actress teamed the frock with a simple necklace and a pair of Christian Louboutin stiletto heels.
After publically slamming the biopic for portraying him inaccurately, Olympic wrestler Schultz has apologised to the director and hopes for Oscar glory.
Wrestler Mark Schultz, whose story inspired the Oscar-nominated movie 'Foxcatcher,' has offered an apology to the biopic's director Bennett Miller for publically slamming the way his life was portrayed on the big-screen.
Mark Schultz [R] is played by Channing Tatum in Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher
Schultz, whose brother David's death from a fatal shot by John du Pont in 1996 is depicted in the film, posted a series of tweets on Saturday and Sunday to express his regret in criticising the film. He also argued Channing Tatum should have been nominated for an Oscar, and also called for Miller to be prized with an Academy Award for best director.
Fox has announced the release date for ‘Gambit’ along with six other titles.
Gambit, the X-Men spin-off starring Channing Tatum we’ve all been waiting for, will be coming our way next year, on October 7th to be precise. The long awaited big screen outing of the cult 90s character is one of six films Fox has just announced release dates for.
Channing Tatum will play Gambit
Gambit, written by Robocop writer Joshua Zetumer, will be Fox’s eighth X-Men movie and will preced X-Men: Apocalypse which is due in summer 2017. But Gambit will have some stiff competition at theatres next October, as it shares a release date with Warner Bros.' Live by Night and Universal’s Monster High.

Director Bennett Miller continues to skilfully probe around the edges of true stories with this follow-up to Capote and Moneyball, although this is a much, much darker tale. Actually, it's such an unnerving series of events that it's not easy to watch, and its characters aren't easy to like. But it's so expertly shot and edited, with startlingly full-on performances from the entire cast, that it can't help but get under the skin and chill us to the bone.
It opens after the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, where Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and and his big brother David (Mark Ruffalo) both won gold medals for wrestling. But they need help with funding to train for Seoul 1988, and Mark gets a remarkable offer from billionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) to start a wrestling team at his vast Foxcatcher estate in New England, which is known for the thoroughbred horses managed by John's imperious mother Jean (Vanessa Redgrave). Aside from wanting to stay home with his wife (Sienna Miller) and kids, David doesn't trust John, so Mark heads to Foxcatcher on his own. But John's obsession knows no bounds, and soon he lures David and family to join them.
Initially, John's interest in wrestling feels like a mere eccentricity, a way of creating a team of "thoroughbreds" to rival his mother's prize-winning horses. But Carell cleverly plays the role with an insinuating glint that makes us wonder what he's up to, and his wrestlers see it too, going along with his nutty plans simply because the money is so good. Then the squirm-inducing twists and turns start, as John introduces Mark to cocaine and everything starts to spiral out of control. Nearly unrecognisable with a prosthetic hook nose, Carell is genuinely terrifying because his performance burns so slowly.

Schultz mysteriously changed his view on the Oscar-tipped movie.
Wrestler Mark Schultz, whose story inspired Bennett Miller's Oscar-tipped movie Foxcatcher, has denounced the filmmaker for what he believes is an unfair portrayal of his life. Schultz was initially supportive of the movie though unleashed his anger at Miller on Twitter and Facebook this week.

Channing Tatum wants to make a 'Ghostbusters' spin-off. Oh, and he was really happy when '22 Jump Street' did well.
In the latest batch of Sony email leaks we got one very interesting nugget of information. Apparently Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt are planning a Ghostbusters spin-off movie to stand alongside the recently announced Ghostbusters 3, which Paul Feig is working on with an all-female cast.
Channing Tatum [R] who starred in 22 Jump Street, wants to develop a Ghostbusters spin-off
Tatum and Pratt, the stars of 22 Jump Street and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively, have reportedly planned a "simultaneously super scary and funny" spin-off which would assumedly have a tone similar to that of Tatum's comedy franchise with Jonah Hill.

Channing Tatum admits playing Mark Schultz in 'Foxcatcher' was his most painful role.
It seems Channing Tatum is far happier flexing his enviable Hollywood body on a stripper's pole or pulling off some smooth moves on the dancefloor when it comes to movie roles, as his latest part as wrestler Mark Schultz has been his hardest yet.
Channing Tatum [L] is under Steve Carell's [R] tutelage in 'Foxcatcher'
The '22 Jump Street' star is hardly an idler having growing up playing all kinds of sport including martial arts, but that doesn't mean his new work out routine for his role as an Olympic grappler in 'Foxcatcher' was any more of an easy ride. 'I challenge anyone who thinks their sport is harder to come and try it', says Channing Tatum, who landed a college football scholarship as a high school graduate. 'This has been the most painful movie I have ever done. I never want to wrestle again.'
And the winner is... well, you already know, don't you?
Ok, it’s time to talk box office stats again. Unlike the past 2 weeks, however, there are actually some interesting new contenders this week. David Fincher’s smash hit Gone Girl has finally been dethroned. Predictably, the new chamion is the Brad Pitt starrer Fury, which took the throne with $23,5 million over the three-day period, easily topping Gone Girl’s $17,8 million (stats according to Box Office Mojo). Fury, a dramatic and gory WWII tale, exposing the horrors of war, also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Scott Eastwood. Even so, Pitt who produced and starred, took center stage during the film’s promo rounds.
"Studios use star power as the No. 1 marketing tool, and Brad Pitt has that," says Phil Contrino, box office analyst for BoxOffice.com. "But it's not star power alone which gets people to the theaters. Brad Pitt picks smart pictures that people want to see."

Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum is carving out a very successful movie career for himself, but according to the 34 year-old actor, finding fame and fortune wasn't due his intellect, especially since he struggled with ADHD and dyslexia while growing up.

'The Book of Life' may have been in better hands at DreamWorks.
When the first trailer hit for The Book of Life, we got very, very excited. The project had originally been optioned by DreamWorks animation in 2007 but never got beyond development due to creative differences.
'The Book of Life' looks stunning, but some criticsaren't enamoured

Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is brought to the Foxcatcher institute by multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Mark is a wrestler, and a good one at that. He confides in du Pont that he wants to be the world's best wrestler. Du Pont himself has his own motives - he wants to be the coach for the world's best wrestling team. But as training steadily creates friction between Mark, his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), and du Pont, it appears that not only are the athletes on edge, but their coach is actually becoming more and more mentally unstable.

Matthew McConaughey will not be starring in the 'Magic Mike' sequel, 'Mike Mike XXL'. Fortunately, the rest of the cast are returning and some other well known faces will also be appearing in the 2015 film, including Amber Heard.
Matthew McConaughey will not be reprising his role as strip club owner Dallas in the upcoming sequel to Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL.

Sony are moving ahead with '23 Jump Street'.
After two movies that have grossed over $500 million on an overall budget of around $100 million, it's no surprise to report that Sony Pictures and Original Film are moving ahead with '23 Jump Street', with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill returning as the leads. Rodney Rotham - one of the primary writers on the sequel - has been tasked with penning the third film.
It's unclear whether Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be back to direct though Deadline confirms they are overseeing the script and will certainly be producers, at the very least. Should the duo want the directing job, it's theirs. Neal Moritz, Hill and Tatum are also on the producers list.

The trailer for Bennett Miller's upcoming film 'Foxcatcher' has been released. Based on a tragic true story, the film has already premiered at Cannes and Steve Carell, who plays a wrestling obsessed schizophrenic, has been highly praised by critics.
Steve Carell is almost unrecognisable as paranoid schizophrenia and wrestling obsessive John du Pont in the upcoming film Foxcatcher.

Nonetheless, he is overcome by jealousy on seeing du Pont's newfound obsession with his charismatic brother and through the whirlwind of unusual bonds, deepening insecurity and unstable emotions, tragedy of the worst kind is about to ensue.

Channing Tatum has made a pretty bold claim when it comes to his parenting skills. “I’m solid at diaper changing!” the Magic Mike actor revealed in an interview. He added: “If a guy isn’t good at changing a diaper I don’t know what he’s there for really, because for the first seven months or so, the mom is the end-all, be-all of everything.”

The '22 Jump Street' reviews are hugely encouraging ahead of the movie's U.S bow this weekend.
'21 Jump Street' was an unexpected delighted in 2012 for olumbia with the seemingly mismatched team of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill proving they had the comedy clout to not only pull off the movie adaptation of the teen series - but make it good. In the sequel - 22 Jump Street - the pair make the case for being considered one of the best new comedy duos around.

'22 Jump Street' has scored strong reviews, proving that the comedy sequel is alive and well.
The central joke of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum's follow-up 22 Jump Street is that sequels are by definition bigger and more complicated, but never quite as good as the original. Indeed, at every point the filmmakers one-up 2012's 21 Jump Street, from the fact that every crashed car explodes into a ball of flame to the new glass-and-steel headquarters for the undercover squad, just across the street from the old one.

The Book Of Live will make you see death in a whole new light.
Death may not seem like an optimum subject for an animated feature, but in The Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez quite literally brings the subject alive using vibrant colours and 3-D animation. Despite taking on what could be seen as a dark subject matter, Gutierrez has crafted a beautiful piece of moving art, which will surely enchant and enthral viewers. It might not hit theatres until October 17th, but we’re betting that this one could just be the next big animated feature.
Manolo is fighting for the affection of his love Maria
The Book of the Life begins with two gods betting on the outcome of a love triangle between a girl named Maria and her two suitors, the arrogant Joaquin and the much more charming Manolo. When Maria comes close to choosing Manolo, one of the gods intervenes, poisoning him to ensure Joaquin will be chosen.

A consistently hilarious stream of in-jokes keeps the audience in fits of laughter even if there's virtually no plot to this follow-up to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum revive their amusing double-act to poke fun at sequels and franchises amid silly set-pieces and starry cameos. And it gives filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller their second terrific comedy of the year, after The Lego Movie.
Following their successful bust of a high school drug ring, undercover officers Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) are assigned by their grumpy captain (Ice Cube) to infiltrate a university and track down who's dealing the new drug whyphy. But both get distracted by life on campus: Schmidt begins a romance with Maya (Amber Stevens), while Jenko finds his meathead soul-mate in football teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). With their partnership in jeopardy, Schmidt and Jenko must refocus on a spring break trip to Mexico, where they discover an old nemesis (Peter Stormare) on the loose.
Using a non-stop series of gags about how follow-up movies are more expensive and less original, the filmmakers go about proving this hypothesis with amusingly overwrought sets and a chaotic, derivative narrative that has very little momentum. Meanwhile, they pack every moment of the film with witty humour that's played expertly by Hill and Tatum, who rekindle their chemistry with a steady barrage of gay double entendre that reveals the movie's true nature as a brom-com. On the other hand, neither the actors nor the filmmakers are willing to push things too far, so they settle for silly vulgarity instead of any black comedy or edgy humour.

Why on Earth have the Wachowskis put the skids on their dazzling summer blockbuster?
Jupiter Ascending won't see release until February next year, it has recently been announced. The unusual, late minute move marks the movie's opening pushed back seven months despite promotion for the sci-fi blockbuster having reached a peak.
We were excited way back in March for the Wachowski brothers futuristic slingshot into space, which stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Sean Bean but have now been told that we'll have to wait until next February to see the movie's special effects, which look to be awesome.
It is actually the special effects department that has reportedly delayed the movie. "With the July release date, they were just not going to make it on time," said Warner Bros. domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman, via Variety. "A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time."

The star is on the charm offensive after his homophobic slur
Jonah Hill landed himself in a bit of trouble recently when he told a paparazzi to “suck his d*ck” and called him a “f**ggot”. Having been a staunch supporter of LGBT rights for his whole life, the scandal did seem like a surprise, and Hill has offered up numerous heartfelt apologies on both The Howard Stern Show and The Tonight Show.
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in '22 Jump Street'
“This person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally,” Hill explained. “And I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool. And in that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people… I’m not at all defending my choice of words, but I’m happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say and how those words — even if you don’t intend them — and how they’re rooted in hate and that’s bullshit and I shouldn’t have said that.”

Change your diaries, we’re going to have to wait until next year for 'Jupiter Ascending'.
It’s time to change our summer viewing plans, because sadly, Jupiter Ascending will not be coming to a theatre near you this July. The Wachowskis’ ‘space opera’, starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum was scheduled for release on July 18th 2014, but now it won't be coming to us until next February!
It's now a much longer wait for Jupiter Ascending
So why the change? Well, apparently it’s all down to those tricky visual effects. If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ll know that Jupiter Ascending is heavy on the special effects, so it’s no real surprise that they could be the cause of the hold up. Dan Fellman, Warner Bros’ president of domestic distribution said, “We’ve been trying like hell to get this finished, but there are over 2,000 visual effects shots in the movie, and it’s just not gonna happen in time.”
