Magic Mike was a movie about strippers trying to make ends meet in the midst of the Great Recession, the difficulty of modern romance, and the dangers of drug use. Magic Mike XXL is a movie about strippers stripping. And not a whole lot else.
A few days ago, Channing Tatum got honest about a few things, including the status of that second Ghostbusters reboot. The Magic Mike star made it sound like the project was stuck in development, toiling away under the watchful eyes of countless Sony execs. Today, it looks like Tatum was underselling the situation. In a separate interview with his producing partner (and Magic Mike XXL co-director), Reid Carolin, it was revealed that Tatum won’t be busting any ghosts after all.
The first teaser for Magic Mike XXL was a glorious thing of hilarious beauty, perfectly deploying Ginuwine’s “Pony” and promising that yes, this is a sequel we want to see. Now the first full trailer has landed online, and it is super pun-heavy, but also pretty charming and funny, as the gang returns with a few new additions for a rowdy road trip adventure.
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.
Remember how Elizabeth Banks had such a great time during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, accepting one of those golden popcorn trophies from the 'Magic Mike' hunks? Now she's getting even more love from Channing Tatum and his crew with a role in 'Magic Mike 2,' which officially revealed the full cast roster and plot details.
Matthew McConaughey may not be back for more super-sized 'Magic Mike 2' action, as the head honcho from the original feature won't be returning for whatever delights its sequel holds for us, but the film is lining up a very, ahem, eclectic cast so far.
'22 Jump Street' gave us one of the most hilarious end credits sequences in comedy history, and one that seemed to signal to audiences that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were done with making 'Jump Street' movies, as it delivered concepts for about 20 fake sequels. But not so fast: '22 Jump Street' writer Rodney Rothman has been hired to return for '23 Jump Street,' so it seems like Ice Cube's threat to send our favorite undercover cops to medical school might not be out of the question.
On first viewing, Channing Tatum's video about his new obsession, 'The Dick Graze' (#DickGraze for the Twittersphere), earned a reaction along the lines of, "Stop trying to make 'fetch' happen. It's not going to happen." But then, keeping in mind that "fetch" actually did happen, and how idiotic us men can be (Ha! Dick graze. Giggle), we're ready to embrace this song-and-dance routine of the '22 Jump Street' star peddling his new thing/hashtag.
You haven't quite seen Channing Tatum and Steve Carell like this before. The second teaser trailer for 'Foxcatcher' has arrived, the new darkly comedic drama from 'Moneyball' director Bennett Miller, and we're getting pretty pumped about this film.
We all know at this point that it's just a matter of time before Channing Tatum plays Gambit in his own 'X-Men' spinoff. We confirmed that Tatum has indeed signed on to play the character he previously said he'd "die to play" in a movie...
