★★★☆☆ Perhaps the most tantalising cinematic fare on offer in recent memory, Magic Mike Xxl (2015) hit cinemas like a well-oiled, lust-filled missile. Voraciously gobbled up by keen viewers, this sequel is decidedly a step up from the first installment. Free from the sombre Soderbergh lens, director Gregory Jacobs and writer Reid Carolin give us the more free-spirited, good-natured and still charming as all hell Kings of Tampa, with Mike Lane (Channing Tatum) at the helm. It's frothy, camp and pitched perfectly.

Alex Pettyfer recently confirmed rumors that Channing Tatum doesn’t like him – and that he has good reason not to be a fan of his.

While most of the cast of the original Magic Mike returned for the sequel, one actor, noticeably absent from the follow-up was Alex Pettyfer, who played "The Kid" in the original film. While there are numerous business reasons for why this was, the reason is none of those things. Pettyfer says he wasn.t asked back because of personal issues between him and the franchise star Channing Tatum. While you.d expect personal problems to result in a lot of finger pointing between the two parties, that doesn.t appear to be happening here. Pettyfer is actually pointing the finger at himself, at least for some of the issues. Channing Tatum does not like me, and for many reasons . many being my own fault. The comments came on Bret Easton Ellis. B.E.E. Podcast. According to Pettyfer, Tatum never wanted the young actor cast in the role to begin »
Did you watch Magic Mike Xxl and think, Hmm, whatever happened to Alex Pettyfer's naked bod? Well, "The Kid" (as he was known in the first film) is finally dishing on why he was left out of the sequel. Appearing on Bret Easton Ellis's podcast Monday, Pettyfer told quite the story about just how much his former co-star Channing Tatum "does not like [him]." Their tense history apparently began around the casting of Magic Mike, during which Tatum allegedly told director Steven Soderbergh not to hire Pettyfer because "he looked upon me as being a risk." At the time, Pettyfer was sort of a bad boy in the making, but his reps assured everyone that Pettyfer would keep things drama-free on set: "I was scared to speak. I actually did my work and I sat in the corner and listened to music because I had been told that anything »

Alex Pettyfer recently gave an interview on writer Bret Easton Ellis's podcast, B.E.E., and confirmed that not everything was magical on the set of Magic Mike. The actor, who was noticeably absent from the sequel, Magic Mike Xxl, opened up about his rocky relationship - and falling-out - with Channing Tatum. "It's true," Alex said, when asked if they fought on set. "Because Channing Tatum does not like me - and for many reasons [and] many being my own fault." Alex said things got off to a bad start because he refused to talk to anyone on set, saying, "I didn't speak on the movie. I was scared to speak. I was very insecure as a human being and that also gave me a bad rep because they said, 'Oh, Alex thinks he's f*cking better than everyone else because he doesn't speak to anyone,' and that's not true. »

Apparently, when it comes to Magic Mike, there was more drama off-screen than on the big screen. The popular male stripper flick that got a number of people hot and bothered had some unseen turmoil going on when cameras weren't rolling, according to Alex Pettyfer. The 25-year-old English actor who starred in the movie revealed in a recent podcast with Bret Easton Ellis that his experience shooting the movie wasn't the most pleasant, and his co-star and producer Channing Tatum made it clear that he wasn't very fond of him. "I was scared to speak. I actually did my work, and I sat in the corner and listened to music because I had been told that anything that I do was wrong by my reps," »
We complain about Hollywood’s ceaseless recycling of existing story material, yet two of this year’s most thrillingly inventive, unconventional mainstream films fall squarely into the sequel category. I’ve already joined the chorus of praise for Mad Max: Fury Road, but there’s been less fuss about the improbably extraordinary achievement of Magic Mike Xxl (Warner, 15). The return of Channing Tatum’s Florida-based stripping collective deftly passes itself off as a horny summer throwaway while defiantly serving a range of perspectives neglected by contemporary studio cinema.
It’s a “bro” comedy that gives (and gives in) generously to the female gaze, not to mention the queer one; a celebration of carnality that finds middle-aged desire no less sexy than twentysomething friskiness. Even the racial status quo is questioned and flipped. »

BFI Check out the Sight & Sound poll for 2015. Not pleased that The Assassin topped the immeasurably finer twofer of Carol & Mad Max Fury Road but it is what it is. Perennial critical darling peculiarities abound like Blackhat placing about Ex Machina. Oh please. I didn't hate the former like some but one must assume that's solely on Michael Mann's reputation, the way some filmmakers get a competition spot at Cannes simply because they directed something.
The Guardian on a Carol gift-wrapping promotion - it breaks my heart that people keep thinking this is a watch it on DVD film. It's So breathtakingly cinematic. Go To The Theater.

You don’t need a good screenplay or character arc when Channing Tatum and co have got their kit off, just plenty of long shots and slo-mo
A good screenplay wastes no time in establishing precisely what’s at stake – or so a thousand budding writers have been taught to believe. In practice, this advice often results in movies that frantically up the ante without ever stopping to ask why, and fill the screen with characters spouting platitudes like “this is the big one”, “everything depends on what happens tonight” and “you’ll remember this moment for the rest of your life”.
What could be more subversive, then, than a film that not only eschews jeopardy from beginning to end, but goes out of its way to actively lower the stakes? What could feel more refreshing than a film in which a character approaches a microphone just before a climactic showdown and declares, »

20th Century Fox
After a fairly turbulent few months in which its very production was put in doubt several times, it looks like 20th Century Fox is finally gearing up to begin work on their long-mooted solo film for the X-Man Gambit with star Channing Tatum and director Doug Liman.
The card throwing cajun first cropped up onscreen in the best-forgotten X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where he was played pretty decently by True Detective star Taylor Kitsch. Now though, Fox is looking to more fully exploit its mutant universe with a series of spin-offs and solo movies, with Gambit due to land in 2016 after both Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse have taken a run at challenging the McU’s box office domination.
Banking on a fan favourite character like Gambit is a bit of a risk for the higher-ups at Fox, particularly seeing as how this version won’t be seen as »

20th Century Fox
Production is finally about to get underway on Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie, with Edge Of Tomorrow and Bourne Identity’s Doug Liman settling into the warm spot of Rupert Wyatt’s vacant director’s chair. We already know that Gambit will be acting independently of the main X-Men series, and that rather than an epic fight between friends, rivals and external forces, it will be a heist movie.
If there’s one thing the X-Men movies have never been shy about, it’s cramming in the mutants as either cameos or anthropomorphic MacGuffins. It’s safe to assume then that Gambit will be no different, bringing in some fan pleasing cameos and possibly even rehabilitating some of the characters that were so poorly served by X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine now that the events of those two films have been completely expunged from »

In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade »

On Christmas Day, director Quentin Tarantino will roll out his eighth feature film, The Hateful Eight, in a limited "roadshow" presentation in 70mm. Fans will have two weeks to see this revenge Western in 70mm, before it debuts nationwide with digital projection on January 8. Fandango has released a seven-minute featurette that explains the importance of this 70mm presentation, and offers some history on the roadshow format, which hasn't been used for years.
One advantage of seeing the 70 mm roadshow is fans will get a longer cut of the movie than they'd see in the nationwide release. Quentin Tarantino revealed last month that the 70mm version will include six minutes of extra footage, a trademark of classic roadshow presentations such as Gone With the Wind, Ben-Hur and many more. We also hear from Samuel L. Jackson, who explains that the 70mm presentation gives viewers an image that is twice as large as a traditional movie. »

Back in September, Sony Pictures set up an Untitled Evel Knievel Biopic with Channing Tatum attached to star and Darren Aronofsky eyed to direct. The project fell apart after Darren Aronofsky backed away to direct an untitled indie movie which has Jennifer Lawrence attached to star. Today, Deadline reports that Paramount is moving forward with an adaptation of Sheldon Saltman's book Evel Knievel on Tour, with William Monahan (The Departed) signing on to write the adapted screenplay. The studio hopes to reunite the screenwriter with director Martin Scorsese, but nothing is set in stone at this point.
The 1977 book Evel Knievel on Tour will be used as a resource for this biopic, but it isn't known exactly how faithful this adaptation will be. The book covers Evel Knievel's infamous 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon in a steam-powered rocket known as the Skycycle X-2, which failed. Author Sheldon »
Evel Knievel seems to be fascinating Hollywood again. The headline grabbing stuntman was the subject of the recent documentary "Being Evel," Sony has their own brewing movie with Channing Tatum attached, and now Paramount want to get on the motorcycle and jump some school buses with their own biopic, hoping to grab the most legendary director around to take it on. Deadline reports that the studio has tapped "The Departed" scribe William Monahan to pen an adaptation of Sheldon Saltman's notorious "Evel Knievel On Tour." The book, which presented a not so family-friendly portrait of Knievel, so infuriated the stuntman that he attacked the author with a baseball bat, breaking his arm. And even more, it details Knievel's failed Snake River Canyon jump. So, with Monahan on board, and Terrence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire," "The Wolf Of Wall Street") slated to produce, Paramount wants to grab Scorsese to complete the trifecta, »

After years spent on the sidelines while creative thinkers tried to hatch a compelling script based on the legendary stuntman and daredevil, it would appear that Hollywood has taken a shine to Evel Knievel.
As reported by Deadline, Paramount has now entered the fray to assemble a crack team for a new live-action feature, and the studio has recruited Oscar-winning scribe William Monahan for the gig. Not only that, but Monahan may have a chance to reunite with his collaborator from The Departed, with the outlet revealing that Martin Scorsese is now being courted to direct.
Not to be confused with Sony’s biopic of Robert “Evel” Knievel – one which has attracted the attention of Channing Tatum and The Wrestler’s Darren Aronofsky – Paramount’s feature is designed to chart the rise and rise of the titular daredevil, who become something of a household name during the 70s after performing »
