Let’s talk some trophies! Today, Mike Ryan and the Huffington Post’s Chris Rosen discuss the Oscar chances of both ‘Foxcatcher’ and ‘A Most Violent Year.’
Channing Tatum - Page 7
Somehow, 'Foxcatcher' star Channing Tatum is the very first male guest to participate in a rousing round of Jimmy Fallon's 'Box of Lies' on 'The Tonight Show.' Fallon's results have been mixed -- the guy isn't very good at lying, especially when a giggly celebrity makes googley eyes at him in an attempt to throw him off his game -- but he has been getting better in recent weeks.
The actors are compelling, but the New York Times obituary contained even more drama in 700 words than 'Foxcatcher' does in 130 minutes.
The saga of Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' began with the screenplay leaking online, continued with Tarantino canceling the project and then resurrecting it following a wonderfully received live reading of the script. Now, it climaxes with the official cast and synopsis being revealed. It's been a bumpy road, but there's a new QT film at the end. The journey should be worth the drama and trouble.
The cast of Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ensemble casts in quite some time, and now it's looking to add one of the biggest leading men to the roster: Channing Tatum is being eyed for a leading role in Tarantino's upcoming western, and word is that the role is pretty major.
We've known for some time that Channing Tatum has been confirmed to appear as Gambit in an upcoming 'X-Men' spinoff film, although how that film will (eventually?) connect to the current films is unclear. Today brings some further motion, as the film is most definitely moving forward, picking up screenwriter Josh Zetumer, who penned the 'RoboCop' remake. We've also learned some potentially good news: Zetumer's script will be based on a treatment by original 'X-Men' comics writer and Gambit co-creator Chris Claremont.
A new film from filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen is always highly-anticipated, but it turns out we're just going to have to wait a little longer for their latest effort. The star-studded 'Hail, Caesar!' which reunites the directors with George Clooney and Tilda Swinton, has been officially given a 2016 release date, and we have a feeling this one will be well-worth the wait.
It may take a little more convincing to get Channing Tatum on board with this whole '23 Jump Street' idea. The end credits for '22 Jump Street' cleverly satirized Hollywood's obsession with milking franchises to the bitter end, seemingly a message from the writers and directors that they wouldn't be back for a third round -- that was, until the recent announcement that Sony is making a third film with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller producing. But will Tatum be back for more?
As director Bennett Miller said, the whole premise behind 'Foxcatcher' -- that of a disturbed millionaire coaching a team of Olympic wrestling hopefuls at his home without knowing a thing about the sport -- was "funny...until it's not, and then it's not funny at all." Following the film's NYFF debut, a new 'Foxcatcher' trailer premiered online to show off the powerhouse performances from Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, and provide a full-length look at this early Oscar contender.
"It’s the kind of thing that’s funny until it’s not, and then it’s not funny at all," 'Foxcatcher' director Bennett Miller told reporters at New York Film Festival of his latest film. The man behind 'Capote' and 'Moneyball' tackled the story of John du Pont, the disturbed successor of the du Pont family fortune who became obsessed with two Olympic wrestling brothers and tragically shot one to death on the grounds of his estate. 'Foxcatcher' was pegged early on as a prospective Oscar contender, and the director and cast members Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall and Vanessa Redgrave went a bit more in-depth on its creation.
