There's a limit to how much Matthew McConaughey can be featured on posters for a single movie, it seems. This week appears to be "Interstellar" one-sheet week, with two arriving so far featuring the actor walking on a planet and looking up at the stars, and now comes another, which boldly puts no one from the starry cast on it at all. Sorry, Topher Grace! Instead, this one brings us the athletic-shoe-style slogan "Go Further," with a space thingy moving at tremendous speed towards the edge of the galaxy. Why? Because we all ruined the Earth, and now, the last resort is to go to outer space to find another planet that humanity can destroy live on. Or something like that. Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, and David Gyasi are joining McConaughey on his voyage. "Insterstellar" opens on November 7th. »

Matthew McConaughey‘s stripping days are behind him. The Oscar winner's publicist told TheWrap that he will not return for the “Magic Mike” sequel, because his schedule did not permit due to his involvement in Gus Van Sant‘s upcoming drama “Sea of Trees.” See video: Watch Alex Pettyfer Panic When Confronted by Actual Tough Guys on Venice Beach Although his representative added that this is “old news,” McConaughey's definite departure from “Magic Mike Xxl” began circulating on the web on Wednesday after The Playlist published an article citing director Greg Jacobs as the source of the news.

Another Interstellar poster has gone online, and it's the prettiest of the bunch so far. The film stars Matthew McConaughey and revolves around a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole “to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” The most recent trailer gave us a hint of how gorgeous the space scenes will be, and this poster is another glimpse at that promise. It also doesn't have a tagline that mixes the hope of discovery with the reminder that we're all going to die unless we leave Earth. Hit the jump to check out the new Interstellar poster. The film opens in 2D and IMAX on November 7th, and also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, »

It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months?
To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still worth discussing what has buzz and what is likely to still be on voters’ minds once the weather finally begins to cool off. »

Alas, Dallas' last dance really was his last. Matthew McConaughey will not reprise his role in Magic Mike Xxl, director Gregory Jacobs confirmed. He didn't reveal the reason for the actor's absence, though he did say the sequel will be "very different." "It's road trip movie, and put it this way: It's different enough that once you see it, you'll understand why we made a sequel," Jacobs explained. "No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice." Filming for the sequel began at the beginning of September, and it's been set for a July 1, 2015, release. McConaughey will be missed, but several of Magic Mike's original cast »
It's not alright, alright, alright. In a bit of disappointing news, director Gregory Jacobs confirmed on Wednesday, Sept. 17, that Matthew McConaughey will not be returning for the upcoming Magic Mike sequel. Jacobs, who took the reins for Magic Mike Xxl from the first installment's director, Steven Soderbergh, confirmed to IndieWire that the second Magic Mike movie will be decidedly McConaughey-free. The Channing Tatum-starring Magic Mike, which became a surprise hit at the box office when it earned $167 million worldwide on its $7 million budget, featured McConaughey, [...] »
Tragic news for fans of Matthew McConaughey in assless chaps (so, all of us): According to an interview in The Playlist with Magic Mike Xxl director Greg Jacobs, McConaughey will not be reprising his role as Dallas in the forthcoming sequel to 2012's smash hit Magic Mike. Vulture is sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Please accept these GIFs of Danny Castellano stripping as consolation. »

Yep, Dallas’ last dance really was his last.
Magic Mike Xxl director Gregory Jacobs, who has taken the reins from Magic Mike director Steven Soderbergh, confirmed that sad, sad news in an interview with IndieWire on Wednesday. Filming for the sequel began at the beginning of September, and it’s been set for a July 1, 2015, release.

This isn't entirely unexpected, but we can put a big R.I.P. on the wishful thoughts that every Magic Mike cast member would be back for Magic Mike Xxl. Despite the global success of director Steven Soderbergh’s original film (the $7 million budget was rewarded with a $167 million worldwide gross), co-star Matthew McConaughey will not be returning. I'm not too surprised since the sequel is already shooting and we hadn't heard too much about his involvement. Magic Mike Xxl is being directed by Gregory Jacobs and will be shot by Peter Andrews (aka Steven Soderbergh) and edited by Mary Ann Bernard (aka Steven Soderbergh). And don't worry, it still stars Channing Tatum. Hit the jump for more on Matthew McConaughey not coming back for Magic Mike Xxl. Director Gregory Jacobs told Indiewire that McConaughey would indeed not be returning. Whether this was a creative or scheduling issue I don't know, »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Let’s get right down to it, while Channing Tatum has said the entire cast would be back, Dallas, aka Matthew McConaughey, won’t return for the “Magic Mike” sequel. We spoke to “Magic Mike Xxl” director Greg Jacobs this week about his new Amazon pilot, “Red Oaks,” and the filmmaker, known for producing many of Steven Soderbergh’s films, including his current series “The Knick,” confirmed to us that McConaughey will not be back. And while cameras have rolled on the “Magic Mike” sequel—you’ll recall Soderbergh posting slates on Twitter over Labor Day weekend—Jacobs told us that was just second unit footage and the real shoot doesn't begin until the end of the month. Much of the cast—Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello—will reprise their roles, but it’s unknown beyond that who else is returning, and Jacobs said he couldn’t say much more. »

New posters for two of the most anticipated films of the year have arrived online. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s icy one sheet, another new Interstellar poster grounds Matthew McConaughey on Earth in director Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi film. It pairs nicely with yesterday’s space-set poster, and also focuses on what looks to be the emotional hook of the story: a father-daughter relationship. I’m more than sold on this movie already, so now I’m just counting down the days until the pic’s November 7th release in both traditional theaters and IMAX. We’ve also got a brand new poster for director David Ayer’s original World War II drama Fury. The story revolves around a tank crew in the final days of the war, as they battle a desperate German army. This new poster puts Brad Pitt front and center as the tank’s leader Wardaddy, »

We've seen Matthew McConaughey walk on the surface of another planet in a recent poster, and now a new one sheet for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" puts our favorite crying engineer-astronaut-hero on the ground and looking up at the stars. Right now, you know as much as we do about the upcoming sci-fi epic. The Earth has run out of food, humanity is on the brink, and McConaughey and company have to go beyond our solar system to save us all, leaving behind his kids. So, an environmental drama/sci-fi tale/family drama all rolled into one? It sure looks like it, which is why we're really looking forward to the movie, one that some folks are already tipping as an Oscar contender, particularly if Nolan knocks it out of the park. "Interstellar" opens on November 7th. [Yahoo] »

And here come the fall blockbusters! Earlier this week we devoured the first full-length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, and now comes a new, intriguing poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar that finds star Matthew McConaughey going for a nice, unassuming stroll through the snow. Thing is, he ain't on Earth -- as evidenced by the astronaut suit he's wearing. So where is he, what does this place have to do with the movie's plot and will he come across an Empire Strikes Back Tauntaun at some point? Well, knowing the answers to those questions will spoil the movie... except for that Tauntaun. We'd really like to know the answer to that one. Instead, let's just gaze upon what looks to be another fascinating...

Matthew McConaughey is the focal point of the latest “Interstellar” poster, released Tuesday. See video: Matthew McConaughey ‘Will Find a Way’ to Save Humanity in New ‘Interstellar’ Teaser (Video) The Oscar-winning movie star stands alone in a spacesuit on what appears to be a strange world. He's caught in the middle of a snowstorm. It's a bit of a different look for the upcoming Christopher Nolan film, which tells the story of a group of explorers who leave their planet (and families) behind to explore a nearby wormhole. Until now, however, most stills and snippets have shown the characters on Earth or in a spaceship, »
