Foxcatcher - Clip


Mark Schultz is an Olympic Gold Medallist wrestler who is often overlooked as his older brother Dave is renowned in the same sport. One day, Mark is invited to the luxurious home of sports sponsor John du Pont, who wishes to train up a team for the forthcoming 1988 Seoul Olympics at his own training facility. Mark is thrilled to be recognised for his talents for once, and begins to appreciate du Pont like a father. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear that du Pont is not all he once appeared to be, being prone to increasingly volatile and erratic behaviour, and his support of Mark begins to get unhealthy. Not only that, but it seems he is now obsessed by the charismatic persona of Dave, and through jealousy and spiralling paranoia, tragedy of the ultimate kind is about to ensue.

Cannes Film Festival 2014: Our Top Five Palme D'Or Winner Predictions


Timothy Spall Mark Ruffalo Channing Tatum Mike Leigh Bennett Miller Michel Hazanavicius

So, we’ve got to admit we’re sort of gunning for Mike Leigh’s film Mr. Turner to win the Palme d’Or 2014, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other films in the running for the prestigious award. Among the 18 films competing to win the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, the winner of which which will be announced on May 25, these are the films we think are most likely to scoop the award.

Based on the real life story of US wrestling coach John du Pont, Foxcatcher is another gritty sports drama that's probably headed straight for the awards after its wider release in November.

22 Jump Street - International Trailer


Schmidt and Jenko are two young cops who thought they'd seen the last of student culture after successfully arresting the supplier behind a high school narcotic in special division 21 Jump Street. However, given that they did such a good job at acting ten years younger, they've been enlisted to return to college to get to the bottom of a new drug that is going around high school graduates called Whyphy. This time they've been moved to 22 Jump Street, and the kids they have to deal with are much smarter - and way more dangerous. When Spring Break comes around, it feels like a perfect opportunity to nab the new suppliers but in order to do so, they need a little help. After visiting an old perp in jail, they begin to weave their way through the social circles of college - but that's easier said than done when their own relationship is struggling.

'Jupiter Ascending': An In-Depth Look At The Wachowski's Space Opera


Mila Kunis Channing Tatum Sean Bean

Jupiter Ascending’ the Wachowski’s epic journey into space will be looking to expand our universe in July. The problem is we might just not be ready for it. A space opera of gigantic proportions, the new trailer has given us our best idea yet of what to expect from this out of this world summer blockbuster.

Mila Kunis jupiter ascendingMila Kunis finds out she has a date with destiny in 'Jupiter Ascending'

The Wachowski’s siblings are of course the minds that brought us 'The Matrix' trilogy, which set a pretty high bar for their future big screen endeavours. Their last outing ‘Cloud Atlas’ received a mixed response from critics, some thought it was an ambitious success which thoroughly paid off, while others found it a bit too much on all levels. If it’s an ambitious project you’re looking for, though, you might want to turn your attention to ‘Jupiter Ascending’. This intergalactic sci-fi adventure might just be the best showcase of the Wachowski’s writing and visual talents since the first ‘Matrix’.

Jupiter Ascending Trailer


Jupiter Jones has an unfortunate life, barely scraping by with her job cleaning toilets as a janitor. She wouldn't have thought that her life would ever be anything meaningful, but she couldn't be more wrong. One day she is captured and an attempt is made on her life, but she finds herself spectacularly rescued by a charming, if unusual-looking, warrior; a half-man, half-human hybrid who has been genetically modified for the interplanetary military. It's he who leads her to the truth about herself and her destiny. Having been born under a night sky where the stars aligned to form her extraordinary future, Jupiter is the foretold forthcoming Queen of the Universe who has been prophesised to usurp the power of the current King and Queen. Living in fear of their imminent fall from power, the rulers order her to be disposed of as soon as possible. Will Jupiter succeed in her rise to power, or will she be praying to return to her uneventful life on earth?

New "22 Jump Street Trailer" Is Familiar, But Still Funny


Channing Tatum Jonah Hill

There’s a new trailer out for the upcoming Channing Tatum starrer 22 Jump Street. There were previously two trailers – the red band and the green band. This one is the green band trailer, except it has a new scene attached to the end. It’s pretty funny, if ever so slightly… well, you’ll see.

Check out the trailer below, courtesy of Sony.

22 Jump Street is the sequel to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street (Sony didn’t get too creative with the titles) in which two deadbeat cops get sent to a high school to go undercover and bust a synthetic drug ring. In the new one, it looks like Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) are up to their old tricks. Only they’ve now graduated from high school (in more ways than one) and are investigating a new case at a local college. Like 21, the sequel is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from a story by Michael Bacall.

The Lego Movie Review


Excellent

Inventive visuals and a seriously deranged script make this animated adventure far more enjoyable than we expect, especially as it brings out the childish creativity in everyone watching. Filmmakers Lord and Miller are experts at finding offbeat comedy in the most surprising places (see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs or 21 Jump Street). And this movie is often jaw-droppingly entertaining.

It's set in a Lego city where construction worker Emmet (voiced by Pratt) follows instructions to the letter. Like everyone else, he has been lulled into complacency by President Business (Ferrell), whose inanely catchy pop songs (the insanely hummable Everything Is Awesome!) and mindless TV shows (Where Are My Pants?) keep people from thinking creatively. He's also concocting an insidious plan involving a secret weapon called the Kragle. Then Emmet inadvertently discovers the Piece of Resistance and is declared "The Special" by the underground rebel alliance led by Wyldstyle (Banks) and Vitruvius (Freeman). With help from Batman (Arnett), a patched-up pirate (Offerman) and a groovy kitty (Brie), they go off-grid to save their civilisation, pursued by the president's vicious enforcer (Neeson).

As the story spirals from the city to the Wild West and Cloud Cuckoo Land, it develops an insane, free-wheeling tone that can't help but spark our imaginations. And the sassy 3D animation adds to this by evoking surreal stop-motion classics like Gumby or The Magic Roundabout while referencing other movies and playing merrily with iconic characters. Hill, Smulders and Tatum turn up as a trio of frustrated superheroes, while Daniels and Williams offer a bit of Star Wars silliness. All of the vocal cast members dive into their characters with energy, bringing out the warped humour and pulling us into the action and even some emotional moments.

Channing Tatum has confirmed that a Magic Mike sequel is in the works by posting a photo of himself, pen and paper in hand, looking at a plaster bust of fellow actor Matthew Mcconaughey.

Danish company The Lego Group have partnered up with Warner Brothers for the first feature length Lego film, The Lego Movie, set to hit the big screen in 2014.

'22 Jump Street': Old Jokes, New Address For Channing Tatum Comedy Sequel [Trailer + Pictures]


Channing Tatum Jonah Hill Ice Cube

The red line trailer has just been released for new cop comedy 22 Jump Street, the sequel to 2012's commercially and critically successful 21 Jump Street.

"You two sons-a-bitches are going to college," we hear Ice Cube bark at Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the trailer before we see montages of the typical movie-ready university scenes: heavy drinking in the hallways, beer pong, sex, shared bathroom dilemmas and deadline library clashes - all with a sludgy hip-hop soundtrack. In no great leap of imagination, the former classmates have immersed themselves in varsity life.

22 Jump Street Trailer


Having successfully managed to nab the suppliers behind a new high school narcotic during their first stint in special division 21 Jump Street, young police officers Schmidt and Jenko are forced to return to college after moving to 22 Jump Street in order to bag the culprits behind another drug surge. There, it's a blur of debauchery, partying and drinking games as they wheedle their way into the different social circles in a bid to find the source of the new substance - even re-visiting some old perps in jail for information. However, their own professional partnership is compromised when they get mixed up in different college scenes and they have to decide if working together is right for them both in the long run. 

'22 Jump Street' is the sequel to 2012's award-winning comedy '21 Jump Street' which is based on Stephen J. Cannell and Patrick Hasburgh's 1987 TV series of the same name. With directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs', 'Clone High') at the helm, it has been written by star Jonah Hill, Michael Bacall ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'), Rodney Rothman ('Late Show with David Letterman') and Oren Uziel ('Mortal Kombat: Rebirth'). It is set to be released in the UK on June 6th 2014.

Jupiter Jones is an impoverished janitor who dreams of a life with much more purpose than she is living. She is convinced that her life will always be one of the many in the world that is simply unimportant, but there are others out there who think differently. Jupiter was born under a night sky whose stars traced a very definite and critical destiny for her. Little does she know that the Earth is a tiny speck in a much larger cosmos ruled over by Queen of the Universe, but also that her genetic make-up makes her the one and only threat to the Queen as she is biologically destined to usurp her title. When an attempt is made on her life, she is rescued by former military hunter Caine; a genetically modified hybrid with human and wolf DNA. Will Jupiter find the strength to fulfil her destiny? Or is it something she could simply do without?

Don Jon Review


Excellent

With this writing-directing debut, Joseph Gordon-Levitt delivers a remarkably assured comedy-drama while also giving himself a role that's far against his usual type. It's raucously hilarious but also surprisingly involving as it reveals the vulnerabilities of a strutting hard-man. And we're having so much fun that we barely notice that the script's approach to addiction is somewhat simplistic.

The title character is such a dude that his friends call him "the don", in reference to New Jersey gangsters. And Jon (Gordon-Levitt) has his life figured out, with a list of things he cares for: his body, home, car, family, church, friends and girls. In that order. But above everything else, his main obsession is porn. Then while hanging with his friends Bobby and Danny (Brown and Luke) he spots Barbara (Johansson), a perfect "dime" who's worth playing the long game for. Except that she has zero tolerance for pornography, so he has to hide his addiction from her, only confessing to his parish priest and an unexpectedly sympathetic fellow student (Moore) at night school.

Like a character from Jersey Shore, Jon is such a charming loser that we can't help but love him. But despite the macho swagger and gym-honed physique, he's also deeply devoted to his parents (the fabulous Danza and Headly) and happiest when he's cleaning his flat. Gordon-Levitt wouldn't be the first actor you'd think of in this role, but he plays it perfectly, letting us see the little boy behind the tough-guy posturing and making us believe that he's fallen for the charms of this idealised woman (Johansson is simply hysterical).

A Burlesque Documentary By Channing Tatum - What Could Be Better?


Channing Tatum Nick Zano

Channing Tatum has apparently decided to follow the age-old wisdom and do what he knows – namely, a reality programme about a strip club. The as-of-yet-untitled project will be an hour-long docu-series, produced for A&E. According to Variety, it will be centered around Tatum heading into the New Orleans burlesque club Saints and Sinners, which Tatum opened with friend and biz partner Keith Kurtz in 2012.

Channing Tatum To Produce Broadway Adaptation Of Magic Mike


Channing Tatum Steven Soderbergh

There’s no denying the success of Magic Mike – for whatever reason, the film, which was made for just $7 million, out of Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh’s own pockets, went on to make $167 million internationally. After such an unexpected success, it seems natural that Tatum and Soderbergh would look to extend the Magic Mike brand – rumors are swirling of an upcoming sequel, but before that, Broadway seems like a perfect fit for the story.

Channing Tatum, G.I. Joe UK Premiere
Tatum funded the film out of his own pocket.

After all, the film already features a company of dancing men, not to mention lots and lots of costume changes. It’s practically a Broadway hit, waiting to be made. The only thing missing to turn this into a musical is the songs. Speaking of which, Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, creators of award-winning show Next to Normal, have been signed up to write the songs, while Glee’s very own Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been enlisted to pen the book.

Magic Mike To Return Better And In Less Clothing Than Ever In Broadway Adaptation


Channing Tatum Matthew Mcconaughey

We don’t tend to think of Magic Mike as high entertainment (actually, we rarely think of it at all,) but all that might be about to change with Channing Tatum’s announcement that the film will be adapted into a Broadway musical. In any case, hot male strippers singing and dancing live for a couple of hours? We would have absolutely no problem with the idea. Deadline was first to announce the news, also introducing the writing team - Next to Normal's Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey will write the songs and Glee writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will pen the script.

Channing Tatum, Jimmy Kimmel Live
The new dad might stay behind the scnes for this one.

This project has been in the works for over a year now, with Channing Tatum hinting at a musical adaptation. And of course, the questions of whether he would actually appear onstage – because what’s Magic Mike without Channing Tatum – have been rampant. Tatum does have a producer’s credit on the show, but it doesn’t look likely that he himself will appear onstage.

Channing Tatum Discusses His ''Sugar Mama'' Wife


Channing Tatum Jenna Dewan

Channing Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan Tatum, apparently used to be his ''sugar mama''. The Tatums met one another on the set of 2006's 'Step Up' and recently had a daughter, Everly, together. Channing Tatum is now a bit of a household name, but back in the days when he was struggling to pay his rent, Jenna was there for him. This led him to believe that she was the woman he was destined to spend his life with.

Disney's big-budget The Lone Ranger may only earn $50 million at the box-office this weekend after getting crushed by Universal's Despicable Me 2 in the opening few days of the box-office. The Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig voiced family flick is tracking for a $35 million Wednesday, whereas The Lone Ranger should only take around $11 million.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Despicable Me 2 will prove to be a huge box office hit over the Fourth of July weekend, with strong reviews and the hugely popular Minions leading the promotional trail. Meanwhile, The Lone Ranger - with Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer - is likely to take around $50 million, meaning it will need to do huge business internationally to recoup its mega budget of $250 million. Director Gore Verbinski and Depp reunited with Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Buckheimer, though the Hollywood A-lister's casting as Tonto appears to have been a misguided move and audiences appear underwhelmed with Hammer as the Ranger.

Tatum is unsure if director Steven Soderburgh, who directed the first Magic Mike film, will be returning for the sequel. He said Soderburgh "really wants to be done directing movies". This has raised the possibility that Tatum could step into the director's shoes as well as starring. He said he would "shoot the sequel" despite being nervous about doing so.

This Is The End Review


Excellent

Comedies don't get much more self-referential than this film, in which a bunch of old friends get together and play themselves facing a biblical-style apocalypse. But they also don't get much funnier. Writing partners Rogen and Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) move into directing with this super-charged bromance that finds surprising resonance amid a constant barrage of vulgarity, in-jokes and end-of-the-world mayhem.

Rogen also stars as himself, happy that his childhood friend Jay is coming to visit him in Los Angeles. Jay prefers to live at home in Canada, far from the plastic L.A. scene, so Seth sets aside the first day with video games and lots of weed. Then they head to James' house for a starry Hollywood party, during which a series of massive earthquakes kills off most of the A-list guests. Seth, Jay and James survive, along with Jonah, Craig and Danny, and as they set up camp in James' mansion, their friendships are strained. Mainly because Danny eats their supply of food, Jay wants to go home, and Jonah is simply too nice to be believed. Until he's possessed by an angry demon.

The blinding array of cameos gives the film's early scenes a terrific kick, as big stars hilariously spoof their public personas before meeting a variety of fiery ends. An especially spiky Watson gets a few extra scenes of her own, while Cera has the most fun as a diva obsessed with sex and drugs. And Tatum gets the most jaw-dropping moment. But it's our six heroes who hold the film together, and their camaraderie adds a surprising warmth, most notably in the central bromance between Rogen and Baruchel.

'Independence Day' Sequel Will Go Ahead Without 'Expensive' Will Smith


Will Smith Roland Emmerich Channing Tatum Dean Devlin James Vanderbilt

Two Independence Day sequels have been scheduled to be released in July 2015 probably without the star of the first film, Will Smith. In an interview with the director of the upcoming film, Roland Emmerich (who directed Channing Tatum in White House Down), said Will Smith is "too expensive". He also said it was because Smith is "too much of a marquee name".

Roland Emmerich
Director Roland Emmerich at the 10,000BC Premiere, L.A. in 2008

Emmerich directed the first Independence Day, in 1996. However, after 17 years Emmerich is aware he is not only catering for an audience who remember the first film but for those who "are new" to the concept. Hence if Smith were to appear in the upcoming sequel, comparisons will be too easily made. In many respects this could alienate (excuse the terrible pun) the new audience.

Channing Tatum Jamie Foxx Maggie Gyllenhaal

In a week that has seen new parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sent out fake baby photos to keep the both the press and their avaricious "friends" away from their daughter North, Magic Mike actor Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum have now taken steps to ensure that they're not hounded by paparazzi itching for the first snap of their daughter Everly. They decided to post their own family photo with baby Everly on Facebook. In a beautiful sunlit image, the couple are seen fondly cradling a rather adorable sleeping Everly. The couple met on the set of 2006's Step Up dance movie and began dating shortly afterwards.

You know, here it is, that's it. Now, let us be." The couple -both actors - were married in Hawaii in 2008 and Jenna gave birth to little Everly on 31st May 2013, with the first image of her released on 16th June (Father's Day).

"White House Down" Isn't All That Original, But It's Still A Fun Trip To The Movies


Channing Tatum Jamie Foxx Maggie Gyllenhaal

White House Down, Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx’s new action flick about, you guessed it, the White House falling hostage to terrorists, saw its world premiere yesterday (June 25). Tatum, Foxx and co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal came out in their best garb to walk the red carpet at the Ziegfield Theater in New York City. But while the stars were busy with premieres and promotional appearances, the critics were already hard at work penning reviews – from the scathing to the not-so-scathing, it isn’t looking too good for director Roland Emmerich’s latest stab at blockbuster success.

Jamie FoxxJamie Foxx At The Premiere Of 'White House Down'

The Wrap’s Leah Rozen comes out with one main criticism for the film - it’s typical macho man fodder, exactly what you’d expect from Emmerich (who also directed Independence Day and 2012)” She is decidedly unimpressed with the story, which features Tatum as the accidental rescuer of the Commander and Chief himself (Foxx) while the two have to buddy up to escape The White House and eventually defeat the somewhat inexplicable terrorists. “It’s kind of fun, in a dopey way, for a while, but then it’s just noise and firepower and boys with their toys,” says Rozen, in what might be the kindest review of the film so far.

Seth Rogen Reveals: 'This Is The End' Does Not Use Original Ending


Seth Rogen James Franco Emma Watson Michael Cera Channing Tatum Paul Rudd Rihanna Evan Goldberg Morgan Freeman Backstreet Boys

Seth Rogen's comedy This Is The End did not use its intended ending. The script was changed in order to accommodate a cameo from 90's pop stars Backstreet Boys leading a sing-along dance to 'Everybody', their 1997 single. 

Director and co-writer Evan Goldberg said the idea had come from an off-the-cuff suggestion from his wife on how to make the ending more interesting. Seth Rogen, who stars in the comedy, was determined to make the idea a reality. 

The Backstreet Boys cameo was not exactly what the writers had planned as the original ending was meant to feature Morgan Freeman, reviving his role as God as in Bruce Almighty. Unfortunately the actor had no interest in participating in the project. Rogen was then adamant the Backstreet Boys should play a part especially, as he said in an interview with The Vulture, he is "the appropriate age" to remember when "Backstreet Boys were kings".

The Backstreet Boys are not the only celebrities to feature in this 'apocalyptic' comedy. In fact the whole film is one cameo appearance after the other. None of the actors are playing characters, merely portraying the public's perception of them.

Eddie Redmayne To Play Stephen Hawking In New Biopic


Eddie Redmayne Stephen Hawking Benedict Cumberbatch Mila Kunis Channing Tatum The Simpsons Futurama Star Trek

Les Misérables star, Eddie Redmayne is set to play Stephen Hawking in a new biopic Theory of Everything directed by James Marsh, according Deadline.com Redmayne is currently filming Jupiter Ascending starring alongside Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. It is currently unknown who will play Hawking's first wife. Filming for Theory of Everything is scheduled to begin this autumn.

Stephen Hawking is the world's most famous and revered scientist. The brilliance and accessibility of his works - A Brief History of Time, Horizon and a collection of science books for children - have ensured Hawking has a place not only in academia but in popular culture. 

However, Hawking is as well known for his disability as he is for his work. The world famous physicist was diagnosed, aged 21, with motor neuron disease. The illness, progressively worsening since Hawking's diagnosis in 1962, has confined Hawking to a wheelchair. He is unable to speak without a voice simulator. Despite all the difficulties Hawking faces he continues to teach at the University of Cambridge.

Channing Tatum On Having Children - "Some People Need Medication"


Channing Tatum

As a new father, Channing Tatum is going to have to draw on his own experiences to put together his style of fatherhood; his own parents behaviours towards him, what he’s seen and read, and his own experience as a child growing up.

For Tatum, though, growing up and school were tainted with a problem that affects many children in America: medication. A young Channing performed better with the meds, but it still wasn’t working, as he explains in his interview with Vanity Fair. “I truly believe some people need medication,” he explained. “I did not. I did better at school when I was on it, but it made me a zombie. You become obsessive. Dexedrine, Adderall. It’s like any other drug. It’s like coke, or crystal meth. The more you do, the less it works. For a time, it would work well.” Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum's newborn daughter is named Everly; they welcomed her into the world on May 31st. "Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Channing Tatum are thrilled to announce the birth of their daughter, Everly Tatum, who was born on May 31 in London," read a statement.

Tatum’s family plans have been discussed in the media before, mainly by the Killer Mike star himself. He actually said, jokingly, that he wants 15 kids and a huge family, but that would probably mean getting a new wife, as Jenna might not be up for that kind of work load.

Don Jon Trailer


Jon Martello enjoys his routine lifestyle which involves working out, maintaining his apartment, driving a flash car, seeing his family, going to church, hanging with his boys, pulling pretty girls and, crucially, watching porn. The expectations he builds watching X-rated internet videos is a massive contribution to the fact that he doesn't have long lasting relationships with anyone, despite his friends nicknaming him Don Jon for his ability to take home a stunning woman whenever he likes. However, after setting eyes on a beautiful blonde at a club, he has more than just a one night stand on his mind and arranges to meet her for a date. When they appear to begin seeing each other regularly (to the delight of his grandchild-less mother) things seem to be going better for him than ever before; that is, until, she catches him enjoying his daily dose of obscene web action. Jon now realises he has a lot of lessons to learn if he wants to be with the woman of his dreams.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt ('Looper', 'Lincoln', 'Inception', 'The Dark Knight Rises') stars in his directorial feature debut 'Don Jon' which also marks his first full-length screenplay. It's a comedy about a seemingly normal New Jersey guy who, though happy as he is at the present, could be slowly destroying his future. It will hit UK cinemas in the Autumn on November 15th 2013.

Guys And Dolls Remake: Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Channing Tatum In Talks


Joseph Gordon-Levitt Channing Tatum Frank Sinatra Marlon Brando Fox

20th Century Fox has landed the movie rights to Guys and Dolls, the classic movie starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando itself based on a successful musical, and will start the process of a remake potentially starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum, according to Deadline.com. A writer and director is yet to be announced, though Fox are keen to pin down its lead stars first.

The remake of the movie is big news in Hollywood, especially among acting circles, where the lead roles are considered the most sought after in the business. A few years it, Harvey Weinstein was close to getting the rights to the movie, with Chicago producers Craig Zadan and Neil Moron producing. Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and even Vin Diesel tossed their hats into the ring for the movie, though the widow of songwriter Frank Loesser didn't find the deal to her liking and declined to sign over the rights.

Now, she appears pretty happy for Fox to take on the story about rogue gamblers and gangsters in the 1920s and 1930s. Nathan Sinatra (Sinatra's role) has a town full of captive gamblers and wants to set up a floating crap game but requires the funds to do it. He bets his friend Sky Masterson (Brando) that he can't get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana. The role of the love interest will no doubt be the subject of a competitive casting process featuring many of Hollywood's top actresses.

Channing Tatum On President-Saving Duty In White House Down (Trailer)


Channing Tatum Jamie Foxx Maggie Gyllenhaal James Woods

White House Down stars Channing Tatum as John Cale, a former USCP officer who is turned down for a job in the Secret Service but soon finds himself in a situation where he is unexpectedly forced to prove his mettle. As Cale takes his daughter Emily on a tour of the White House, in order to give her a day she’ll always remember, the government comes under attack from terrorists and the White House building is at the centre of the attacks. 

Cale unwittingly finds himself responsible for ensuring the safety of the US President (President James Sawyer, played by Jamie Foxx), as well as making sure that his daughter comes to no harm as the building comes under attack from a series of bombings. His true abilities are soon to be recognised, that’s for sure. The trailer sees a series of news footage clips, detailing the attacks, inter-spliced with action shots of Channing trying to navigate his way around the building, protecting the President as he goes.

When USCP officer John Cale is turned down as he applies for a highly coveted role in the Secret Service, he is devastated but cannot find it in himself to disappoint his young daughter Emily who idolises him and his job. In a bid to give Emily an experience to remember, he takes her on a tour of the White House, but what started out as the most normal of days (if a little extra exciting for Emily) quickly becomes a situation of life and death when terrorist groups launch a series of bombs that hit the White House causing a shocking scene of devastation. John now finds himself with the responsibility of keeping his daughter safe from harm as well as protecting President James Sawyer along with the rest of his country. He may have lost out on becoming an official protector of the President, but he now faces a true test of his abilities that is unlikely to go unnoticed.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review


Bad

By ignoring everything that made 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra a hugely entertaining guilty pleasure, the all-new writers and director of this sequel have made one of the most abrasively annoying action movies in recent memory. And even worse, they have indulged in exactly the same over-serious idiocy that the first film was gently lampooning. Instead, this is just a bombastic, incoherent, offensive mess.

Since the US President (Pryce) has been replaced by an evil doppelganger from the villainous Cobra organisation, he now sets about destroying his enemies, the elite G.I. Joe force. Led by Duke (Tatum), they're sent to collect some rogue nukes in Pakistan, and everything goes wrong. Now it's up to three off-the-grid Joes - meatlead leader Roadblock (Johnson), shy muscle-boy Flint (Cotrona) and tough-sexy Jaye (Palicki) - to stop Cobra's nefarious plan, whatever that might be. Their key opponents are Cobra goon Firefly (Stevenson) and ninja Storm Shadow (Lee), who's more complex than he looks. And the Joes have secret allies in Asian pals Jinx (Yung) and Snake Eyes (Park), as well as the original Joe himself (Willis).

The main problem here is that producer di Bonaventura forgot that it takes a lot of skill to make a stupid movie that's actually entertaining. Instead, this film is predictable and inane, with action scenes that stretch the limits even of stupid-movie plausibility (such as a ludicrous Spidey-style aerial battle in the Himalayas). And the fist-fights are impossible to see because they are confusingly directed, jarringly edited and then converted into unnecessary 3D. When everything explodes in every single chase scene, it becomes a bit boring really. And while there are gadgets everywhere, none of them are very cool.

Side Effects Review


Excellent

Thrillers don't get much more enjoyable than this one, which shifts cleverly from an issue-based drama to an intriguing mystery and finally into riotously camp mayhem. Over his career, Soderbergh has proven himself adept at all three approaches, and the way he and writer Burns morph from one to the other is so mercilessly entertaining that we can't help but smile. And the cast is having a great time playing along with them.

It starts as an expose of psychotropic drugs, as Emily (Mara) struggles with depression after her husband Martin (Tatum) is released following a four-year prison term for insider trading. Emily's therapist Dr Banks (Law) prescribes a series of anti-anxiety pills to help her, adjusting the medication until the side effects even out. But something still isn't right, and a fatal incident leads to a criminal trial. Meanwhile, Banks begins his own investigation into the case, consulting Emily's previous therapist (Zeta-Jones). But the fallout from all of this is threatening both his career and his marriage to Dierdre (Shaw).

Soderbergh gives the film a seductive tone that's irresistible, with his own gleaming cinematography and witty editing, plus a teasing Thomas Newman score. This allows the actors to create layered characters who can constantly surprise us along the way. Law holds our sympathies as a desperate man trying against all odds to get his life back, while Zeta-Jones is icy and dismissive until her character takes a lively turn about halfway in. But it's Mara who's the real revelation in a tricky role. As Emily's world seems to shift and collapse around her, she reveals an astonishing array of emotions and intentions.

The Tatums' Christmas Card To Fans Debuts Jenna Dewan's Baby Bump


Channing Tatum

Apparently Channing Tatum has hung up the cop uniform and sparkly underwear and he couldn’t be happier about his new job as daddy-to-be.

The Magic Mike actor posted a picture of himself with pregnant wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum on his WhoSay page last week and it caused a collective “awwww” to erupt all over the internet. The picture shows him with his arms wrapped around Jenna and is captioned simply “Merry Christmas”. They’re wearing matching hats too, in case you were wondering. It really couldn’t get any cuter.

There are still no official pictures of Jenna and her baby bump, but even the candid shots are enough to set the gossip-sphere abuzz. Everybody loves a new Hollywood baby, after all and the 32-year-old actor and his wife are currently expecting their first child. They were both glowing in the setting of their newly opened New Orleans bar “Saints and Sinners”, which opened on Oct 8, according to E!Online. With so much success in 2012, there can be no doubt that the family is having a very merry holiday season and will be ushering the New Year in style. Looks like everything is coming up roses for the Tatums. We here at Contact Music would like to wish Channing, Jenna, and the future baby all the best in 2013.

Sexiest Man Alive Spawns Child! Channing Tatum And Jenna Dewan Tatum Expecting Baby


Channing Tatum Jenna Dewan

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum are expecting a baby! People magazine – who recently voted Channing the Sexiest man Alive – broke the news yesterday (December 17, 2012), after the couple’s rep confirmed they “are pleased to announce that they are expecting the birth of their first child next year.” It’s no great surprise, as Channing revealed to the magazine fairly recently that both he and Jenna felt ready to start a family. “I’m ready; I think she’s ready,” said Channing when it came to baby talk. When he was asked how big he wanted their brood to be, he said “The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we’ll see where we go after that."

Jenna spoke to Billy Bush and Scott Wolf on Access Hollywood Live recently and was coy when it came to the subject of babies. “We want a family, we definitely want a family. Whenever it’s meant to be… whenever divine intervention comes along and creates that to happen, it will be happening.” Not giving much away there, then!

Channing and Jenna met on the set of the 2006 movie Step Up. They’re both 32 years old and married in 2009; now the couple are preparing to bring their first child into the world.

Let The People Decide! People Choice Awards 2013 Nominees Announced


Channing Tatum Johnny Depp Joseph Gordon-Levitt Zooey Deschanel Will Smith Jane Lynch Sofia Vergara

The Peoples Choice Awards give the general public a chance to decide whose acceptance speech they want to hear. Gone are the stuffy critics and 'experts' who normally plump for how good a film, or concentrate on someone's artistic integrity when making award decisions; in are the general public, who like wardrobe malfunctions and when people treat each other awfully.

So who's up for public recognition of the entertainment kind? Perhaps one of the biggest categories is 'favourite movie actor', in which Channing Tatum, Johnny Depp, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Will Smith are all in the running. We think Channing will receive the nod because of his recent Sexiest Man Alive award, but we hope Joseph Gordon-Levitt will win, because of his excellent work in Looper. On a more light-hearted note, the people will have Jane Lynch, Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Sofia Vergara and Zooey Deschanel to choose from in the best comedy actress category. We think Kayley Cuoco will win despite being under pressure from Deschanel in her kooky New Girl role. The Big Bang Theory's clout should prevail, though.

The film portion of the night features a list of blockbusters, and is 80% comprised of movies beginning with 'the'; people like stuff with 'the' stuck on. The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Huntsman are fighting it out. We hope Snow White wins. We won't tell you why. Catch the awards live on CBS, January 9th, 2012. 

People's Choice Sexiest Male Goes To Channing Tatum


Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum has been named this year's People's Choice Sexiest Man Alive, but it's not just a perfectly toned body or a bone-structure to die for that can get you the coveted spot, it turns out you've gotta be an all-round nice guy as well. Which, it turns out, Channing is. 

When he's not slicked up and sexy on set for movies such as Magic Mike, he's reciting the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe or giving his lucky, lucky wife massages. He also sculpts, and can't wait to have children. He married Jenna Dewan-Tatum back in 2009, and now they've started talking about kids. "I'm ready; I think she's ready," he said. "The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that." He's also totally up for women's rights, commenting "It's really easy for us guys to say, 'I want like 15 kids... Jenna will be like, 'Well you better get another wife!'"

Showing just as much love and devotion to her husband as he shows to her, Jenna said: "People know him to be fun and sexy, but they don't know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is...He is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get."

Magic Mike Review


Very Good
A film about male strippers promises Showgirls (or at least Burlesque) levels of camp guilty-pleasure fun for female and gay-male audiences. But look again, because the trailers are misleading. This is a Steven Soderbergh film, and he's a serious director who enjoys twisting genres in intelligent ways. Even his comedies (the Ocean's Eleven series) are smart and surprising. Furthermore, the story is based on star Channing Tatum's own experiences as a stripper while he sought work as an actor, so the plot doesn't fall into the usual formula.

Tatum plays Mike, a construction worker who moonlights as a stripper in a women-only club in Tampa, Florida. When he notices hot, 19-year-old Adam (Pettyfer) on the building site, he invites him along to the club, where owner Dallas (McConaughey) is hoping to take the show to the Miami big time. Soon Adam is part of the team (which includes actor-hunks True Blood's Manganiello, White Collar's Bomer and CSI Miami's Rodriguez), but he also gets tempted by the darker side of the scene, namely girls and drugs.

21 Jump Street Review


Excellent
An especially sharp script makes this riotous adaptation of the serious-minded 1980s TV series thoroughly entertaining. And it manages to achieve a balance between the action and spoofery due to sure-handed direction and a cast that really dives into the mayhem.

Rivals in high school, popular pretty boy Jenko (Tatum) and smart-shy nerd Schmidt (Hill) become unlikely friends to get through police academy. But being cops isn't quite as exciting as they thought it would be until they're assigned to the Jump Street squad run by Captain Dickson (Cube). This group of baby-faced cops infiltrate high schools, posing as students. Jenko and Schmidt's assignment is to find the source of a new super-drug that recently caused the death of a student.

Jonah recalled a member of the film's crew who gave the pair real guns to perform with, which were usually loaded with blanks. To make sure that the gun wasn't loaded, Jonah would point the gun at the handler's genitalia and fire.

The Vow Review


OK
Inspired by a true story, this film is watchable mainly because of the extraordinary events, which are genuinely involving and moving. Although typically, Hollywood has ramped up the emotions while avoiding subtlety at all costs.

Goofy recording engineer Leo (Tatum) and adorable artist Paige (McAdams) had a cute romance, quirky wedding and four happy years together before a car crash changed everything. Leo only has minor injuries, but Paige has lost some five years of memories. Crucially, she has no idea who Leo is. And she doesn't remember turning her back on her law course, smirking fiance (Speedman) and wealthy parents (Lange and Neill). They're all she remembers now, so Leo tries to remind her of who she became after she left them behind. If they'll let him.

Haywire Review


Excellent
It's hardly surprising that Soderbergh takes such a bracing approach to the action thriller genre. What makes this film stand out from the crowd is its insistence on making sure that the action is grounded in human physicality, internalised drama and the laws of gravity.

Mallory (Carano) is a former military operative who's now a private contractor.

After working with Aaron (Tatum) on a rather dodgy kidnap-rescue in Barcelona, her U.S. Government boss Kenneth (McGregor) sends her to Dublin on an assignment with British agent Paul (Fassbender). But things quickly get messy and, when she ends up on the run, she desperately grabs a passerby (Angarano) and tells him her tale while figuring out what to do. The only men she trusts are a political puppet-master (Douglas) and her ex-military guru dad (Paxton).

Step Up Review


OK
Advertising materials tell us all we need to know about Step Up. She's a little bit Fame, and he's a little bit West Side Story. She's an ice queen, while he's a Vanilla Ice clone. We get it. Yet choreographer-turned-director Anne Fletcher does everything short of laying down railroad track and positioning her leads on opposite sides to hammer home the from-different-worlds hook that carries her fleet-footed tween fairy tale.Channing Tatum fills the baggy jeans of street-tough foster kid Tyler - all the truly edgy names must have been taken. Using a baseball cap and blank stare as method tools, the actor aims for the fiery rebellion of James Dean or early Richard Gere but achieves a flatness reserved for James Franco.This watered-down Eminem walks his own 8 Mile until the cops bust him for vandalizing property at the Maryland School of the Arts. Tasked with serving 200 hours of community service, Tyler mouths off to authority (Rachel Griffiths, longing for her Six Feet Under days), romances self-centered dancer Nora (Jenna Dewan), and discovers a career path that might one day lead him out of the ghetto.Fletcher's resume is littered with professional choreography jobs on films like Bring it On and Ice Princess. She pours her creative juice into this film's numerous dance routines, and it's during those moments that Step Up shows flashes of potential. Tatum and Dewan have limited ability as dramatic actors, but each can move to the beat with the best of them.Fletcher desperately needs someone in her cast to - pardon the pun - step up and elevate the film past the stacks of storytelling clichés cranked out by screenwriters Duane Adler and Melissa Rosenberg. Their script half tries, with unfinished results. Days after Tyler arrives on campus, Nora's dance partner conveniently drops out of her senior routine with a temporary injury. Nora's mother frowns on her unyielding dedication to dance, yet pays for her daughter to attend a private arts program. When Step Up reaches beyond the dance floor, exploring a gang grudge that leads to the death of someone close to Tyler, the movie fatally stumbles and never regains its footing.Step up? How 'bout you step off!?
