Gambit has been a fan favorite 'X-Men' character ever since his first full appearance in "Uncanny X-Men #266" back in 1990. You would think that would lead to fast track to the big screen, but Gambit's road to cinematic stardom has been shaky at best. The character made a brief appearance in the horrible 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (played by Taylor Kitsch), but has since not been re-introduced to movie audiences. That could all change as Channing Tatum admits he's met with the 'X-Men' producers about the part.
After getting the delightful news that 'Magic Mike 2,' starring, co-written and co-produced by Channing Tatum, will be titled 'Magic Mike XXL,' Tatum lovers everywhere will no doubt release a collective sigh to hear that the film is coming sooner than we think! Warner Bros. dated 'Magic Mike 2' for release in 2015, and what's even better, Tatum says that nearly the entire cast is expected to return.
Guillermo may be Jimmy Kimmel's "security guard" and "driver" and "friend," but he also has some big dreams, like usurping the late-night throne from his own boss and host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' If that involves stealing his jokes, so be it. If that means just taking over the late-night show's air time, fine. If he needs to text high-profile guests to get them on the show, consider it done.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller may have passed up on 'Ghostbusters 3,' but that's completely fine with us if they keep making movies that look as funny as '22 Jump Street'. Today, the final red-band trailer has arrived and, in the rare case of the comedy sequel, it looks just as funny as the first.
Channing Tatum can do many things -- dance like no one's watching ('Magic Mike'), protect the President ('White House Down') and transform into a lupine warrior ('Jupiter Ascending'), to name a few -- but it looks like one thing he can't do is pull off a Latin America accent. Or at least Jenko can't. The first '22 Jump Street' clip dropped online, along with a batch of new photos and a poster, giving us a look at one of the more funny moments glimpsed from the trailers.
While we've been hearing from star Channing Tatum for some time that 'Magic Mike 2' is in the works, even though original director Steven Soderbergh has since retired from making movies, now we've got something more official to go on: the film has been given a very delightful and appropriate title, and a director has officially been chosen to choreograph all those new dance routines.
'Jupiter Ascending,' which released two posters earlier today, has just unleashed its latest trailer, giving us a better look at the story. It seems The Wachowskis have merged the standard 'Star Wars'-esque hero's journey with the tale of a princess (Played by Mila Kunis) who finds out her destiny from Channing Tatum after a lifetime of menial labor. The big takeaway from this new spot is that the film looks epic.
Nobody makes movies quite like Andy and Lana Wachowski, so it's not surprising that everything we've seen from 'Jupiter Ascending' looks just plain bonkers and totally unique. Anyone who made the 'Matrix' trilogy and 'Speed Racer' and 'Cloud Atlas' has earned our complete and undying loyalty, mainly because they keep on doing things that we've never seen before. Two new 'Jupiter Ascending' posters arrived today, and they too showcase something completely special: Channing Tatum as a heavily armed, tattooed space elf.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are ready to reunite ... Well, technically they already did in 'The LEGO Movie' as LEGO Superman and LEGO Green Lantern, but we mean reprising their roles as undercover cops for '22 Jump Street.' With Schmidt and Jenko now heading to infiltrate a local college, there will surely be many crazy nights to be had -- so many, in fact, that Sony had to release an alternate cut of the '22 Jump Street' trailer just to give audiences a taste of how many antics will be taking place.
These days, nearly every movie star wants to play a superhero and Channing Tatum is no exception. The '21 Jump Street' and 'Magic Mike' star has previously expressed interest in playing the popular X-Men character Gambit on the big screen, but it all sounded like talk and little more. But now, X-Men franchise producer Shuler Donner has revealed that yes, she would very much like to see Tatum play the character and that yes, a Gambit movie may actually happen.
