Foxcatcher: New photos from the upcoming drama Foxcatcher reveal Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo in poses that are anything but glamorous. Based on a true story, Carell plays the isolated and wealthy John du Pont, who becomes a mentor to champion wrestlers, first to an intense loner (Tatum) and then to his older brother (Ruffalo), a family man. Touted for awards consideration, the movie opens in theaters on November 14. [USA Today] Green Room: Patrick Stewart, who has become well-known as the gentle yet powerful Professor X in the X-Men movies, is set to costar as a white-supermacist leader in crime thriller Green Room.

Directed by Bennett Miller.
Bennett Miller has slowly begun his ascent into the Premier League of Hollywood directors. His extraordinary work on Capote and Moneyball has lifted him in amongst a handful of film maestro’s that has made him a magnet for talent. And three years after his jaunt into the worlds of baseball, he is back with Foxcatcher, a film with a huge weight of expectation after a six-minute standing ovation at this year’s Cannes.

While I am still not over the idea of Hollywood’s nice guy Steve Carell playing a obsessive psychopath, there are apparently other things going on in Bennett Miller’s dark drama Foxcatcher. There’s Channing Tatum, of course, playing Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, and Mark Ruffalo as his brother Dave. Then there’s the complicated relationship that develops between the Schultz brothers and John du Pont (Carell), as the latter helps them train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new training facility on his estate. As the three men interact, obsession, power, and paranoia begin to take over, and du Pont’s increasingly erratic and disturbing behavior threatens to drive a rift between the brothers. Exciting stuff, made all the more so when you realize that it’s based on a true story.
You can just feel the menace and alienation in a new batch of images from Foxcatcher. »

Dayum! Is that really the guy from 'Live with Kelly and Michael'?!

Michael Strahan, 42, looked so good on set of Magic Mike Xxl that even Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum, was impressed. The folks at Good Morning America managed to snag a photo of their ABC colleague as he showed off his jacked, six-pack (maybe even seven) abs.
Good morning America, indeed!
Okay @michaelstrahan! Look at this behind the scenes photo of him (and @channingtatum from the "Magic Mike Xxl" set.

Steve Carrell is almost unrecognizable playing John du Pont in the biographical drama Foxcatcher, also starring Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. Foxcatcher is getting rave reviews across the board and looking at the trailer, you can probably see why. The dramatic tale of Olympic wrestling champions and brothers Mark and Dave Schultz, the later killed […]
As if Magic Mike Xxl needed more man candy, here comes Michael Strahan! While filming continues in Georgia, the popular daytime talk show host snapped a photo from the set with his co-star Channing Tatum. Instead of spoiling anything about the storyline, however, Strahan simply gave fans a clear view of his six-pack abs. "Okay @MichaelStrahan!" Good Morning America wrote on Instagram. "Look at this behind the scenes photo of him (and @ChanningTatum) from the 'Magic Mike Xxl' set." Clearly, someone has been working on their fitness and taking this role very seriously. While you try to simmer down after looking at the hot picture, we can't help but compare »
A batch of new Foxcatcher images have landed online from director Bennett Miller’s (Capote) upcoming dark drama, and they do an excellent job of evoking the tone of the film. Steve Carell stars as John du Pont, an eccentric millionaire who decided to host an Olympic Wrestling training camp on his grounds despite having no experience with the sport himself. The crux of the film revolves around du Pont’s relationship with Olympic Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and in particular du Pont’s mentorship of the younger brother Mark, who lived in the shadow of his more successful brother. I caught the film at Tiff and it’s magnificent. The performances by Carell, Tatum, and Ruffalo are positively transcendent, as each actor wholly disappears into his role. Don’t miss this one, folks. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Foxcatcher images, »

What is the single hottest thing about a Hollywood star? Many would argue that the sight of a handsome man holding a puppy will always make you melt. But even hotter? Your Hollywood crush holding, playing with, and/or taking care of his children. What you’re about to learn is that no man is too proud to look absolutely ridiculous if it’s for the sake of his mini-mes. Ben Affleck taking his kids trick-or-treating. Channing Tatum shamelessly wearing a pink butterfly blanket to amuse little Everly. Chris Hemsworth rocking a BabyBjorn. Your hearts are about to melt. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Ice Cube returned to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday, and once again he demonstrated his ability to turn even the most wholesome of statements into intimidating bursts of anger. See photos: Party Report in Pictures: Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Jon Stewart and SNL's Week Off (Photos) Kimmel read his guest lines like, “Rainbows are majestic visions that remind us how beautiful life truly is,” and waited for the former N.W.A rapper to repeat them in signature tough-guy fashion. “Baby spinach” never sounded so dangerous.

Mexican mythology provides the inspiration for The Book of Life, a sunny and spirited animation that's as much about what happens after we leave this mortal coil. Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana and Diego Luna lend their voices, each in the corner of a love triangle that spans three beautifully realised worlds: the Land of the Living, the Land of the Remembered and the Land of the Forgotten.
At the centre of some cosmic turbulence is Manolo (Luna), the son of a bullfighter who is expected to follow in dad's footsteps, but Manolo would rather play his guitar and serenade the town beauty Maria (Saldana). Rivalling him for Maria's affections is best pal Joaquin (Tatum), a bit of a blowhard who »
Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

The #1 comedy of 2014, Columbia Pictures / Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures' 22 Jump Street, will return to theaters on Friday, October 24, 2014, in advance of its release on home entertainment,it was announced today by Rory Bruer, president, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures. As the film has taken in a domestic box office of over $191 million and a worldwide take over $327 million, the re-release is a chance for audiences across the country to revisit the top-grossing comedy of 2014 on the big screen.
Following the theatrical re-release, 22 Jump Street will be available early on Digital HD on October 28, and on Blu- ray and DVD on November 18.
Commenting on the announcement, Bruer said:
"Clearly, audiences fell in love with these characters two years ago and this summer they showed the strong appetite for more adventures with the hilarious pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. There's nothing like laughing out loud in a packed theater, so before the movie becomes available to own, »
Do you remember when Paramount Pictures decided to create a double feature of Star Trek Into Darkness and World War Z last year? The primary motivation for this double feature was to get World War Z to cross $200 million at the domestic box office, because the films that hit that box office milestone allow studios to ask for more money from cable networks for the rights to air the movie on television. The same thing happened with This is The End last year, and now Columbia Pictures has their eye on the $200 million mark as they're bringing 22 Jump Street starring Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill back to theaters on Friday. It's not a bad move since the film won't be available on Digital HD until October 28th (next Tuesday) and doesn't hit Blu-Ray or DVD until November 18th. Rory Bruer, president, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said, "There's nothing like laughing »

The Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill buddy comedy hit 22 Jump Street is being re-released by Sony on October 24, in a distribution and marketing move that is kind of odd, given that the film is now at $191M domestically and $137.4M internationally. Usually this is done to reach some kind of box office benchmark, but given that it’s already at $328.4M worldwide and is unlikely to make another $9M domestically, it has us scratching our heads. The DVD comes out on October 28th so why would you re-release it into theaters four days before?
According to one Sony exec, “It’s essentially a promotional run, a chance for audiences to see the No. 1 comedy of the year on the big screen before its home entertainment launch. Not trying to hit any milestone per se. Always good for audiences to enjoy together before home entertainment kicks in.” Okaaay. I still don’t get it. »

Money can't buy you love, but can it earn you self-validation? It's a theme that's explored in the fascinating Foxcatcher, an involving tale based on a chilling true story that boasts enthralling, career-changing performances from Channing Tatum and Steve Carell.
Directed with great measure and restraint by Moneyball's Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher revolves around depressed Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz (Tatum) and his relationship with mega-wealthy loner John Du Pont (Carell). It's John's dream to put together a wrestling team to compete in the next Olympics and he manages to recruit Mark, although his brother and fellow wrestler Dave (Mark Ruffalo) proves harder to catch.
As the relationship between the trio develops, often in unhealthy ways, we're gripped by what John's underlying motivations for his apparent altruism might be. »
Brad Pitt's "Fury" war movie took first place at the domestic box office this weekend with $24 million, which is one of the best openings of all time for a World War II film behind "Pearl Harbor" ($59 million), "Inglourious Basterds" ($38 million) and "Saving Private Ryan ($31 million). It's also the highest opening of director David Ayer's career. The new movie, co-starring Shia Labeouf and Logan Lerman, cost $68 million to make and has an 81% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes. Thanks to positive reviews, it's expected that "Fury" will have a strong showing overseas, where it begins to roll out next weekend. The animated "Book of Life" movie, voiced by Channing Tatum and Zoe Salanda, ended up in third place with $17 million, which puts it on track to barely earn back its $50 million budget. Internationally, "Book of Life" took another $8.6 million for a worldwide debut of $25.6 million. It has a 79% fresh rating. The »
