Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum are taking a quick break from producing and filming ‘Ten Year‘, their first movie together since ‘Step Up‘, to spend time with their family for the holidays. Above are a few new pics of the couple getting in some last minute gift shopping in Los Angeles on December 23rd.
Before Jenna began filming ‘Ten Year‘ with Chan in New Mexico a week ago, she braved the very chilly temperatures of Grand Rapids, Michigan while filming her drama ‘Setup‘ with 50 Cent, Ryan Phillippe, and Bruce Willis earlier this month. BeforeTheTrailer.com recently interviewed Mike Gunther, the director of the movie (which is also produced by 50 Cent and Randall Emmett), and we get to learn a little more about the “diamond heist gone wrong” film where the professional dancer, actress, and producer added stunt woman to her growing resume.
Gunther tells BeforeTheTrailer.com…

Stars: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, David Zayas, Giselle Itié, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Charisma Carpenter, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis | Written and Directed by Sylvester Stallone
A group of mercenaries, led by the ageing Sylvester Stallone (who still looks like he could kick the arse of men a third his age), head to a generic South American island to overthrow the generic evil communist dictator on the behest of a mean-sounding CIA front man played by Bruce Willis. But when the mission goes awry it leads to all sorts of action set-pieces, the likes of which we haven’t seen the 80s/90s action movie heyday.
With the most basic of plots, The Expendables is a non-stop action-fest, with set piece after set piece hitting the screen with such a pace that you don’t have time to stop »
Sylvester Stallone and his misfit band of mercs, having rescued a group of hostages from some Somalian pirates in ruthlessly efficient fashion, take on a new job set up by Bruce Willis’ shady CIA broker. Their mission? To take down a puppet military dictator on a fictitious Latin American island, who is being controlled/manipulated by Eric Roberts in order to make a killing from the island’s cocaine harvest.
The Expendables arrived off the back of some serious anticipation. Sly, Arnie, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Steve Austin, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews , Gary Daniels – the list just seemed to go on and the idea of seeing all of these past and present action heavyweights slugging it out and blowing stuff up sounded like a dream come true. What we have though, is neither a disaster nor a masterpiece, simply a good old-fashioned action flick »

Although Mr. and Mrs. Tatum were miles apart working (Chan was busy getting interviewed in La for ‘The Eagle‘ press junket and Jenna’s filming her action movie ‘Setup‘ in Michigan), I get to bring them together in today’s post of exclusive, behind-the-scenes personal pics.
First up we have Chan taking a picture of his sister Paige as she takes a picture of him relaxing before he starts his interviews for a UK press junket for ‘The Eagle‘ in La on December 13th…
Next up we have an extremely cold Jenna tweeting from Grand Rapids where the production for ‘Setup‘ has been bearing the cold to shoot scenes by the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, on Monroe Avenue, on Elmwood Street, and at Rumors Night Club on South Division Avenue. »

Christmas is almost upon us, so what DVD and Blu-rays are out to buy in time for the festive season? Let’s just say this – it’s definitely an action-packed week!
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former Sas and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons. »
You’re not interested in this film because you’re a connoisseur of fine acting. You don’t want to see it because you’re interested in quirky humor that takes jabs at popular culture. You’re going to watch The Expendables because you trust that when you put the likes of Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Steve Austin in a balls-to-the-wall action film that lots of things are going to explode, people will have their heads bashed in, and a quantity of firearms greater than that used in all of two World Wars will be thrown on the screen in a fiery mash-up of testosterone bliss. The Expendables gives action fans a taste of what they want, but it never really delivers on the promise that all those names gathered in one place suggests. In the end, we’re left with »

This is the Pure Movies review of The Expendables, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The review is by Pure Movies editor Dan Higgins. This is a Stallone film. The action is sometimes great but sometimes it drags and becomes tiring. The film itself never really develops but still manages to run too long. There are some great cameos; one jaw-dropping scene with Arnie, Stallone and Bruce Willis altogether but it was scenes like this that defined the film. The great thing about Rocky, Rambo, Die Hard, Speed, Terminator, Predators (etc) is that they were serious (to a point) action films. Sure, they are cheesy but, at the same time, thoroughly enjoyable. The Expendables, however, never really elevates itself away from anything other than ‘We have a load of really famous action stars, how cool is this? »

Int - a small garage in Chicago. Day. It belongs to Sylvester Stallone, 64-year-old muscleman and mercenary for hire. His friends, including Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Mickey Rourke have come round for a Chat. Such is the muscle mass and so small is the room that none of the men are able to Move.

To celebrate Lionsgate’s UK release of The Expendables on DVD and Blu-ray on December 13th, we here at Blogomatic3000 thought we’d take a look at our favourite team-ups in movie history…
13) Bubba Ho-Tep
Who else but Phantasm director Don Coscarelli could bring you a tale that sees an elderly Elvis team up with JFK to to battle an evil Egyptian mummy who has chosen their East Texas rest home as his hunting grounds. Based on the award-winning short story by Joe R. Lansdale, Bubba Ho-Tep is a movie that needs to be seen to be believed, and is possibly Bruce Campbell’s greatest performance.
12) Dead Heat
What says team-up more than a cop teaming up with his dead partner to take down zombie criminals? That’s the basic plot of Dead Heat, which follows cops Roger Mortis and Doug Bigelow as they try and solve a case that »
It's got all the biggest stars of all ti- you know what, we'll just say 'ever'. It may be a grand sweeping statement and yes, there are a few older action stars that died before the movie could be made (their loss), but even in their absence The Expendables managed to assemble one of the most testosterone-pumped films in recent memory. It hit shelves on November 23rd in Blu-ray and DVD combo packs (with a digital copy to boot!) Want to win a combo pack of The Expendables? Just read on and you could be the lucky winner.
Co-written and directed by Sylvester Stallone from a screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone and story by David Callaham, The Expendables follows a team of hardened mercenaries – including Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke – who are sent on what »

Much like her hubby, Jenna Dewan-Tatum has been a busy bee this year. She filmed the western ‘The Legend of Hell’s Gate: An American Conspiracy‘ and the romantic comedies ‘Slightly Single in L.A.‘ and ‘Balls to the Wall‘.
She also executive produced and premiered the Producer’s Guild nominated political documentary ‘Earth Made of Glass‘ at the Tribeca Film Festival and is currently producing the high school reunion drama ‘Ten Year‘ with husband Channing Tatum via their new (soon to be titled) production company.
After spending Thanksgiving with Chan and her family in Texas, Jenna flew to the Michigan (where she’s currently using her new Snuggie to stay warm) and now we know why…
Variety just announced that Jenna has joined Bruce Willis, Chan’s ‘Stop-Loss‘ co-star Ryan Phillippe, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson in the heist actioner ‘Setup‘, which began filming in Grand Rapids, Michigan earlier this week. »

Sylvester Stallone has had one of the strangest careers in cinema history. He’s had hit films for the last four decades. But he’s also had very public failures. The ups and downs are intense, as he made his way through being an action star to doing bad comedy to going direct to video, to his current resurgence (which came ten years after he tried to reinvent himself in Copland). Basically, he’s happy to coast and do garbage like Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot if the money’s good. But between Rambo and Rocky Balboa, Stallone was one the comeback trail, and with The Expendables, Stallone had his biggest hit in ages. By getting together such action stalwarts as Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lungren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Eric Roberts, and Terry Crews, he had a multi-generational, multi-ethnic man on a mission movie.

I (Alex) had the chance to speak to Randy Couture about "The Expendables," which is currently out on DVD and Blu-ray. The man is an Mma champ and easily the toughest cast member in the movie, which is why he was so modest during the interview. I also threw in some of your questions, which he was happy to answer. How did you find out about "The Expendables"? I found out about the project through my agent. He said that Sly was interested in talking to me about a character for a movie that he was working on. We [later] sat down and [Stallone] told me all about the project and all the guys he was trying to pull together. He explained the characters as he saw it. He was looking at me for Hale Caesar, which ultimately Terry Crews ended up playing. He changed it around and I ended up playing Toll Road, »
Randy Couture.s looking at the next chapter in his life. He is one of the most successful fighting champs in the ring; a mixed martial artist, Greco-Roman wrestler, three-time heavyweight champion and a two-time light-heavyweight champion of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. But at 47, he.s feeling the need to expand other muscles, those creative ones. Randy is Toll Booth, a hulking tough guy with a heart of gold in The Expendables, now on Blu Ray and DVD, who fights for justice alongside Sylvester Stallone, Jaso Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Steve Austin. He does a great job and reveals a surprising gift for comic timing. Monsters and Critics chatted with Couture to celebrate the continuing success »

I (Alex) recently had the chance to speak to Terry Crews about "The Expendables," which is now in stores on DVD and Blu-ray. The actor spoke about how he met Sylvester Stallone, realizing that his life will never be the same and which action stars he would like to see in the sequel. How did you find out about "The Expendables"? I heard about it in Variety and they were talking about putting together this whole thing. It was weird. Back then Forest Whitaker was in it and a lot of the names that you see there, and I was like 'Man! I would love to do something like that.' And I've known what was going on for a little while, at least a few months before I got the call. Where did your character's name (Hale Caesar) come from? That's Sly. He has names like Toll Road (Randy Couture »
Sly Stallone pulls off a testosterone fueled tribute to the yesteryear of action films and partially succeeds. He has a cast that is dreamt of if you.re a fan of action films, but he hangs it on the barest skeleton of a plot - not that the films that he.s paying tribute to had much of that anyway. Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is the leader of a mercenary team consisting of Christmas (Jason Stratham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Toll Road (Randy Couture), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), and Gunner (Dolph Lundgren). On their latest assignment, Gunner goes a bit wacky and has to be subdued until he can cool off. When Barney returns stateside he goes to see »

If you chewed up a 30-ounce bloody steak, bench-pressed 500 pounds and had the hair on your chest grow hair, you still wouldn’t be as manly as the posse director-writer-actor Sylvester Stallone assembled for “The Expendables,” on DVD and Blu-ray today.
Stallone, who recently made decent new “Rocky” and “Rambo” sequels, could have sat back in his mansion and rode off into retirement on residuals. Instead, for fans like you, the 64-year-old made a loving homage to ’80s and early ’90s action films — The Golden Era of the genre — by casting every big-name action star he could sign.
The big guns that Stallone locked and loaded for “The Expendables” include Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Eric Roberts, “Rocky IV” adversary Dolph Lundgren and even cameos by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Stallone plays the leader of the Expendables — a tight team of »

"America Lost & Found: The Bbs Story" (1968-1972)
Released by Criterion Collection
A set of seven films that's as diverse and wild as the era in which they were born, Criterion's reassembly of Bbs Studios' run from 1968 through 1972 boasts influential hits like "Easy Rider," "Five Easy Pieces" and "King of Marvin Gardens" and obscurities like Jack Nicholson's directorial debut "Drive, He Said" and Henry Jaglom's "A Safe Place" that have never been on DVD before. New interviews, vintage documentaries and much more from directors Bob Rafelson, Peter Bogdanovich (whose "Last Picture Show" is also included), Nicholson and the late Dennis Hopper highlight a collection that doubles as a history of when there was a changing of the guard in American cinema.
