A lack of new releases in the home entertainment industry’s no man’s season – the period of time between the Memorial Day weekend and the end of the school year – was all it took for Walt Disney’s “Frozen” to once again become the top-selling disc the week ending June 1.
This marks the eighth time since the film’s DVD and Blu-ray Disc release three months ago that it has been No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined.
“Frozen” finished the week at No. 2 on Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, behind 20th Century Fox’s “Avatar,” an even older oldie-but-goodie that was initially released on disc in April 2010. The disc shot back up the charts last week – it was No. 3 on First Alert – chiefly due to a Walmart promotion in which the film was selected »

Endless Love Blu-ray Youthful love is a common trope in cinema, and when done correctly, can feel timely, eternal and touching. When not done correctly, it can end up like the 2014 remake of Endless Love, a tale of two lovebirds that consistently feels aged, stilted and inappropriate. Endless Love stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde as David and Jade, two high school seniors who barely know one another. Jade.s a lot like Say Anything.s Diane.she.s close to her family but barely rates on the high school popularity scale. However, David.s quite enthralled with her and does what he can to expand her world, even though she.s from the upper crust and he.s from a blue collar family. While Pettyfer and Wilde actually capably bring an affection to the screen, the stock characters and unfortunate dialogue don.t compare well with today.s teen »

This reboot of the 1981 movie of the same name (starring Brooke Shields) was also based on the same book by Scott Spencer that the first film was based on. The movie tells the story of Jade (Gabriella Wilde), a sheltered and well-off girl, and David (Alex Pettyfer), a charismatic and less well-off boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. To bring her vision for Endless Love from script to screen, director Shana Feste assembled a behind-the-scenes team led by cinematographer Andrew Dunn, production designer Clay Griffith and … Continue reading →

Back in March, we reported that the Magic Mike sequel will be entitled Magic Mike Xxl, with original director Steven Soderbergh's longtime assistant Gregory Jacobs stepping in to take the helm. While many fans hoped that Steven Soderbergh would return from his self-imposed retirement to direct the sequel himself, the filmmaker confirmed in an interview with GQ that he will still be a part of the production as a camera operator, director of photography and the editor.
Here's what he had to say about wanting to stay involved with the production, without taking the helm.
"I want to be there, but I don't want to be the director. I want to be a part of it. I want to be in the band, but I just don't want to be the frontman this time."

If seeing Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey taking off their clothes in Magic Mike piqued your interest in male stripping in the area of sheer curiosity, then one of the film's stars has a documentary just for you. "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello was also sharing the stage with those actors with his shirt and pants off, and his experience on the film got him interested in directing a documentary on the profession of male exotic dancers. And so here we are with a red band trailer for the Slamdance selected film La Bare, focusing on the history, lives and culture of the most popular male strip club in the world. Here's the first red band trailer for Joe Manganiello's La Bare from Vulture: La Bare is directed by Joe Manganiello, one of the co-stars of Steven Soderbergh's male stripper drama Magic Mike (which has a »

It's the biggest news of the day. Probably the week. Possibly the month. And maybe even the whole year thus far. Director J.J. Abrams has announced the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII. Returning from the original trilogy are Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker. Joining them are newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.
What we haven't gotten are any new story details or character breakdowns. Who are these new guys playing? And where is Billy Dee Williams? We've been able to piece together all the information we've had in the past two years to explain who we might see on screen next December, and in what capacity. None of this has been confirmed by Disney or Lucasfilm.
John Boyega's name was first rumored just this past March, where »

The McConaissance was a wonderful thing for pop culture. It brought us Mud, and True Detective, and of course, culminated in Mr. Alright, Alright, Alright finally earning an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.
But are fans of Matthew McConaughey about to experience a downside to the actor’s recent success? The Channing Tatum-penned Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike Xxl, just received a release date of July 3, 2015. If things Work Out As They Should, it should be a wonderful two hours of G-strings, ’80s songs, and showcases of Tatum-created dance moves (ideally with less Alex Pettyfer and »

Warner Bros. wants you to celebrate Independence Day 2015 with ripped abs, greased-up pecs, g-strings, and dollar bills. The studio has revealed that "Magic Mike 2" will be released July 3, 2015, according to Deadline. Channing Tatum is returning in the title role in the sequel to the surprise 2012 hit directed by Steven Soderbergh. It was inspired by Tatum's days as a male stripper; he and Soderbergh co-produced and helped finance the film themselves. Soderbergh's longtime collaborator Gregory Jacobs is directing this time around. The sequel -- reported to be titled "Magic Mike Xxl" -- will provide counter-programming to the usual summer blockbuster fare. "Terminator: Genesis" opens two days earlier, and other July 2015 openers include "Despicable Me: Minions" the Peter Pan adaptation "Pan," and Marvel's "Ant-Man." The original "Magic Mike" also starred Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello. It earned a huge $113.7 million domestically, and spawned a forthcoming Broadway musical. »

Any film that proves to be a box office smash hit virtually guarantees itself a pre-approved sequel, and 2012’s Magic Mike is no exception. Thanks to great reviews and a $167 million international return on a $7 million budget, Magic Mike 2 – or more specifically, Magic Mike Xxl – will arrive in cinemas on July 3rd, 2015.
Magic Mike was loosely based on the experiences of the film’s producer and star Channing Tatum, back in his days as an 18 year old stripper. Co-starring Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer, the film enjoyed critical, as well as commercial success. According to a recent interview with MTV, Tatum and writer/producer Reid Carolin have been writing the sequel for several months already.
This one will be a road trip movie. Without giving a lot away, we don’t wanna make it a really serious, slice-of-life movie. We want to have reality in it, »

Just weeks after securing director Gregory Jacobs, the Magic Mike sequel, currently titled Magic Mike Xxl, has been given a July 3, 2015 release date. The sequel currently has the date all to itself, but it will debut just two days after Paramount's Terminator: Genesis opens on July 1, 2015.
Channing Tatum is co-writing the script with his Magic Mike collaborator Reid Carolin. The actor recently spoke about the writing process in an interview with MTV, where he revealed that he has been working on the script with Reid Carolin for the past two months.
"[We started writing] probably like two months ago. With my partner Reid I was like, 'Ah it'll write itself, it's fine'-not the case. Not the case at all."
It has been widely believed that the rest of the Magic Mike cast, including Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Bomer are returning. While no deals have been signed yet, Channing Tatum »
Warner Bros. has set a July 3, 2015 release date for Magic Mike Xxl (aka Magic Mike 2) of which star and co-writer Channing Tatum recently discussed with MTV saying, "I think everyone's gonna be back, I think. Obviously no one's deals are done which is always kind of scary." As for the plot, it's just as before, the film is expected to be a road trip movie, but Tatum elaborated with MTV saying: This one will be a road trip movie. Without giving a lot away, we don't wanna make it a really serious, slice-of-life movie. We want to have reality in it, but we don't want to make it some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last one that I think surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want there to be a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a sh*t-ton of fun. »

The sequel to the hit 2012 film directed by Steven Soderbergh was about Channing Tatum‘s early days as a male stripper before he blew up as an actor. I dug the first film which is also Soderbergh’s biggest hit as a director. What was also cool about the film was the fact that Channing and Soderbergh financed it themselves, took a huge risk, and it obviously paid off.
For those who didn’t see the first film, Magic Mike was about Mike (Channing Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy cash.
With the Entourage movie and now Magic Mike sequel going forward next summer, »

What do we know about “Magic Mike 2” so far? Well, as we revealed exclusively a few weeks back, the official title will be “Magic Mike Xxl” and Greg Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh’s longtime producer/first A.D./creative co-hort, will take over the directing duties (Soderbergh has “retired” which basically means directing TV, but no feature films). And more news has arrived. Warner Bros. has slotted the movie for a July 4th weekend in 2015. America, get happy (though the gang of strippers will have to face off against the new "Terminator" reboot which could prove to be a challenge). Who’s returning for the sequel? Obviously Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer were seemingly written out of the narrative, but asked point blank about McConaughey, star/producer/co-writer Channing Tatum recently told MTV, “I think everyone’s gonna be back, I think, Obviously no one’s deals are done which is always kind of scary. »
