While Paramount mostly focused on two films during their CinemaCon presentation (Terminator Genisys and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Warner Bros. took a different path by showcasing almost every one of their upcoming movies with the stars of each film introducing the footage to attendees. It was like a movie premiere that had every major star in Hollywood in attendance. Here’s some of the people that took the stage for the WB panel: Reese Witherspoon, Sofia Vergara, Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Doug Ellin, Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, director Scott Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Teresa Palmer, Luke Bracey, and others that I am sure I’m forgetting. Shortly after the presentation ended I sat down with Peter from /film and recorded »

During his appearance at the Tribeca Film Festival, composer Carter Burwell – who has a longstanding working partnership with Joel and Ethan Coen – has shared a handful of new details for the siblings’ latest picture, Hollywood drama Hail, Caesar!
Specifically, Burwell discussed the tone of the upcoming movie and how it is “rather serious” despite being described as a musical comedy hitherto. First picked up by The Hollywood Reporter, here’s what the composer had to say on the matter.
“It’s a musical comedy that takes place on a Hollywood backlot, so you pass through all these pictures that are in production there. I wouldn’t actually call it a ‘musical comedy’ — there are movies within the movie, and those movies might have comedic music, but the movie we’re making is actually not comical,” he elaborated. “I haven’t written the music yet, but I’m quite certain it »

If you thought you had the Coen Brothers' upcoming "Hail, Caesar!" all figured out, guess again. What we've known so far is that the movie features a star-studded ensemble — Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill — and is set across a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix. Supporting player Alex Karpovsky recently described the movie as "wacky and zany," comparing it to the Coens' undersung "The Hudsucker Proxy." Or is it? The Coens' composer, Carter Burwell, appeared at the Tribeca Film Festival for the "Dolby Institute: The Sound of the Coens" masterclass and shared some intriguing details about the movie, painting a far more complex portrait of the film the siblings are putting together.

Las Vegas - Warner Bros. is still the grand old lady of Hollywood and the studio brought out a slew of stars for its annual CinemaCon presentation. They also, unlike some of their sister studios, pretty much went through their entire slate for 2015 and dipped a toe into 2016. What really got us percolating, however, were the first signs of a Johnny Depp comeback. Depp, who hasn't had a real hit since 2011's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," wasn't physically in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, but his appearance in an extended preview for Scott Cooper's "Black Mass" was revelatory. "Mass" is a biopic about the notorious Boston mafia boss Whitey Bulger who spent 16 years on the run from the FBI. The footage begins with Depp as Bulger at what appears to be a card game or dinner. He begins to joke around with John Morris (David Harbour). Within minutes, »

From male strippers to apocalyptic road warriors, Warner Bros. unloaded a slate packed with a diverse range of films that it hopes pack in audiences at CinemaCon on Tuesday.
The studio promises to deliver in quantity even if it falls short of quality. This summer alone, Warner Bros. will unveil eight films, a massive figure in an age in which studios are dramatically scaling back the number of productions they greenlight.
Paramount for instance, which presented its pared-down slate to exhibitors earlier in the day, will host a quarter of that amount.
Though pictures such as the earthquake thriller “San Andreas” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” drew hearty applause from the crowd of theater owners, 2015 promises to »

Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, Magic Mike Xxl finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike (Tatum) sharing the spotlight with them.

Posters, posters, posters everywhere and not a drop to...wait, that's not right. What my sleep-deprived brain is trying to tell you is that sometimes you just need to take all the posters we see released each day and condense them down into one post; this is that post, so lets take a look at a few of the recently released posters from Magic Mike Xxl, The Walk, and The Peanuts Movie. Magic Mike Xxl is Channing Tatum's follow-up to the wildly successful Magic »

If those Channing Tatum posters had you sweating, then these other Magic Mike Xxl posters will keep things steamy. In these movie posters, cast members Matt Bomer, tWitch, and Adam Rodriguez get in on the action, and the good news is: no one is wearing a shirt. Click, drool, repeat, and for more, watch the trailer for the 100th time, and then check out all the pictures. »
It might be Monday, but it just turned into one of the best days of the week. Hunky Matt Bomer and Warner Bros. have shared another poster from the summer's highly anticipated Magic Mike Xxl. But instead of shirtless Channing Tatum, we get the White Collar star, and he is looking good. Bomer tweeted his poster, writing, "I hope to see you on the dance floor July 1st! @magicmikemovie #Xxl Xxo." You're mistaken, Bomer. We can't wait to see you on the dance floor. Dressed in jeans and a fedora (he is shirtless, after all), the Normal Heart actor looks phenomenally chiseled, abtastic, pretty much any adjective you can think of to describe his toned torso. The official Twitter account for the »
I don't want to make the posters for "Magic Mike Xxl" a petty eye-candy competition, but sigh. What else should it be? Matt Bomer, the star of USA's "White Collar" and most sex fantasies, gets his turn to shine in a new poster for the salacious sequel. (Who am I, Gene Shalit?) As you can see, he is giving us "porn star Montgomery Clift" in an important way. More like "From Hot To Eternity," am I right? For comparison's sake, here's star Channing Tatum's poster. I'm getting a bit more sex appeal in Bomer's pic. Maybe the next sequel should be called "Magic Matt, Xoxo, Sorry 'Bout It, Channing"? Yes. "Magic Mike Xxl" is out July 1. »

Channing Tatum shared an incredible story about the power of Twitter over the weekend. On Saturday, the actor found himself in a tough spot after he left his bag in an NYC cab. Instead of giving up hope on getting his possessions back, Channing took to Twitter to ask his followers for a helping hand. As he explains in the tweets below, the plan actually worked! Dropped off at 42nd street in New York City and left my bag in the cab! — Channing Tatum (@channingtatum) April 18, 2015 Seriously, left my black backpack in a cab near NYC's 42nd street. If you find it, email me at email@example.com. Thanks! — Channing Tatum (@channingtatum) April 18, 2015 To everyone who tried to help and to the good New York Samaritan who found my bag and asked for nothing in return, thank you.

Twitter isn’t just a good tool for self promotion, it’s a great way to track down lost items — if you have enough followers. Channing Tatum, who has 7.04 million of them, took advantage of the social media platform to find a bag he left in a New York City cab on Saturday. “Dropped off at 42nd street in New York City and left my bag in the cab,” the “Magic Mike” star tweeted before officially calling upon Twitter for help. “Seriously, left my black backpack in a cab near NYC’s 42nd street. If you find it, email me at findmybag@channingtatumunwrapped. »

Has Twitter become the new lost and found? For Channing Tatum it has! The hunky 22 Jump Street actor became all too familiar with the horror that comes with leaving something in a New York City cab Saturday when he forgot to take his backpack with him! What was a guy to do?! Well, with more than 7 million Twitter followers to his name, he did the most logical thing he could do—ask the social media platform for help! Tatum tweeted his dilemma and asked his followers to just be on the lookout should they find themselves in a cab in NYC (specifically near Times Square). "Dropped off at 42nd street in New York City and left my bag in the cab!" he tweeted. Fearing that some people might not be »
Fans will get to see much more of Anna Paquin's Rogue in the "Rogue Cut" of X-Men: Days of Future Past, which doesn't have a confirmed release date. We reported earlier this month that the Blu-ray and DVD release will have over 17 minutes of never-before-seen footage of Rogue, whose part in the film was cut substantially. With X-Men: Apocalypse starting production this month in Montreal, it isn't known if the actress will be back as Rogue, but she took to her Twitter page today to reveal that she would love to play Rogue again, if they give her character the power to fly.
"if I get to fly, absolutely"
When asked if her comment means that she actually isn't interested in playing Rogue again, the actress clarified by saying Rogue has the ability to fly in the comic books, but she has never gotten to fly in any of »

Stephen "tWitch" Boss is giving Channing Tatum a run for his money! In some new recently released posters for Magic Mike Xxl, the So You Think You Can Dance star busts a move while flaunting his super-sexy, rock-hard body. tWitch's poster features the dance pro doing a body roll. His six-pack abs look ridiculously chiseled and his bulging biceps don't look too bad either as he dances shirtless in jeans and a hat. As for Tatum's sizzling poster, which was released just the other day, the 34-year-old strikes a technical dance pose on the tip of his toes while also flaunting his sexy, ripped body in only jeans. tWitch took to Instagram earlier today to share his poster image with the »

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight lives! Those of of us who didn't seek out a leaked copy or have the cash to watch a live all-star reading of Tarantino's screenplay were psyched when the Oscar winner decided to go ahead and make the movie anyway, despite his ire when the script showed up online. Ultimately, instead of punishing his fans by not going forward with his planned follow-up to Django Unchained, Tarantino went and gathered the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Channing Tatum (alas, in a small role, so not one of the Eight), Bruce Dern, Walter Goggins, Demian Bechir, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth to see his vision through. Just as Django was a vaguely »
