Summer 2012 is certainly kicking off with a bang.

Well, it took him a little while to settle on something, and after flirting with a seemingly endless list of projects, "Precious" director Lee Daniels returns with a bit of a shift in direction with the period thriller "The Paperboy." And if this poster is anything to go by, this could be a very unexpected treat. Boasting an all-star cast – Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack and Nicole Kidman – the film is based on the book by Pete Dexter and follows Ward James (McConaughey), a respected journalist, and his brother Jack (Efron), a college dropout, investigating the possible wrongful conviction of a death row inmate (Cusack) who was found guilty of killing the town’s sheriff in Florida. As all this unfolds, Jack winds up falling for the convict's love interest (Kidman). Through its development a number of names came and went – Bradley Cooper, Alex Pettyfer, Sofia Vergara, Tobey Maguire – but it likely speaks. »
Babymaking with Olivia Munn in Babymakers Red Band
Sorry, readersm trailer removed by request.
If you weren’t previously a fan of actress Olivia Munn, this latest Red Band trailer for her upcoming film, Babymakers, may just have you singing a brand new tune. Hey, just don’t say we didn’t warn you that this one was a Red Band trailer! As you can imagine, there will be baby-making in the film, and then some.
In the film, a 31-year-old Munn shares the screen with Parks & Recreation actor Paul Schneider. Babymakers is a comedy that reveals just how far one couple will go in order to conceive a child. Yes, they’ll even try ripping off a sperm bank, with a little help from their friends, of course. That’s not the type of undertaking you want to tackle all alone. The film is scheduled for a 2013 release.
Jay Chandrasekhar directs the film. »

With the end of 2011 coming in just a few days, studios are unloading new photos for their upcoming 2012 slate in an attempt to entice viewers who aren't yet winded by the holiday movie onslaught.
Not opening until June is Warner Brothers' Jack the Giant Killer, which is a riff on the Jack and the Beanstalk tale and follows a young farmhand named Jack (X-Men:First Class' Nicholas Hoult) who opens up a door to another world and must save a princess (Alice in Wonderland's Eleanor Tomlinson) and destroy the giants he has unwittingly unleashed. the new photo, which shows Jack climbing the bean stalk into the other world, is only a screenshot from the recently-released first trailer, but the synopsis below is new.
Jack the Giant Killer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. »

year in review part whichever
I use the term "worst" loosely as I am generally not paid to see the obviously terrible films that open all year round. Plus, I'm not feeling the negativity this year. Or, rather, I'm trying not to feel it. With Bridesmaids and Melancholia both speaking so eloquently on the subject of depression this year like some perfect if unlikely double feature (more on that soon) why should I wallow in my own? No, 2011 was a good year for cinema. So here is a very quick purge of the things that momentarily led me to believe otherwise.
Hell's multiplex has noisy audiences, crying babies, constant texting, and 50 million miniature screens showing only 50 movies, a million microscopic screens for each sorry movie! All of them requiring 3D glasses... even the ones in 2D. I wisely avoided the films I thought might play there -- if »

Millennium Films has debuted a rather cool retro poster for The Paperboy, a new film directed by Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels (Precious) and starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, John Cusack and Nicole Kidman. The film is an adaptation of the Peter Dexter novel and follows Ward James (Matthew McConaughey), a Miami Times reporter who returns to his hometown to investigate the murder of a local sheriff who is eventually helped by his younger brother Jack (Efron) as they investigate the possible wrongful conviction of a man on death row. Throughout the process Jack falls for the woman (Nicole Kidman) whom the convict (John Cusack) has been romancing through prison correspondence. Throughout pre-production the film underwent a dramatic shift in talent with McConaughey taking over for Bradley Cooper, Efron stepping in for Alex Pettyfer, Cusack filling in for Tobey Maguire and finally Kidman replacing Sofia Vergara.

Alex Pettyfer was worried he would ''ruin'' 'I Am Number Four'. The blonde hunk - who stars as alien John Smith in the sci-fi fantasy film - was so concerned the film would not work with him in it he walked out of the audition, before realising he would relish the challenge to play such an unusual part. He told Bang Showbiz: ''I find John so layered and so complex and such an interesting guy. He's from a different planet who comes to earth and has the same emotions as us and this vulnerability and is »

A first image has arrived for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, and would you believe it – Matthew McConaughey’s only gone and taken his shirt off! The first image shows McConaughey in the midst of a strip routine, alongside musclebound co-stars Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum. How he’s going to get out of those impossibly tight jeans is beyond us, but we’re sure he’ll find a way… The film is based upon Tatum’s real life experiences as a male stripper, with Pettyfer playing a newcomer to the...

If you ever wondered what a Steven Soderbergh stripper movie might look like (and come on, I know I'm not the only one out there who's wondered about that) well, wonder no more.
The Academy Award-winning director's upcoming film about hot dudes who take their clothes off for money — "Magic Mike," perhaps better known as the "Channing Tatum and other shirtless Hollywood hunks" movie — has released its first still, showing stars Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey showing off their, ah, patriotism on stage.
Our friends over at Hollywood Crush are very understandably drooling over the new photo, so head over there for more on the movie.

Color me shocked. After years of famously refusing to remove his clothing for films, Matthew McConaughey has finally given in and stripped down. Magic Mike must be a hell of a project to make him betray his own ethical stance against half-nudity in film. Either that, or Steven Soderberg must have convinced him that he had to get partially naked in order to co-star. Well, I hope it was worth it, Mr. McConaughey. I hope it was worth your dignity. As you can see, Warners has released the first official image from the movie (which is also the first image ever of McConaughey without any top cover) that stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, McConaughey and Olivia Munn. As we all know, it’s about male strippers. As we know because of this picture, it’s about patriotic strippers. And, as you can tell, we finally know why McConaughey refused to take his top off before now. Eesh »

Channing Tatum’s project “Magic Mike,” a film about male strippers, finally has its first movie still. Entertainment Weekly reported on the Americana-themed still today, which shows Tatum on the far right end as well as (l-r) Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConaughey. However, while Magnaniello, Pettyfer and Tatum all have wifebeaters on, McConaughey is the only one shirtless. If you’re a McConaughey fan, this is probably your lucky day. I guess if you’re a fan of any one of these actors, it’s probably your lucky day. You can view the picture at Entertainment Weekly or below the post. “Magic Mike” is a film written by Tatum’s production partner Reid »

 Love him or hate him, you'll be seeing a lot of Channing Tatum in 2012: Shooting at things in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, romancing Rachel McAdams in The Vow, going to the prom with Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street, fighting Cobra in G.I. Joe Retaliation, and possibly getting killed by Steve Carell in Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher. But if I'm being honest, the one I'm really curious about is Soderbergh's Magic Mike, which stars Tatum as an experienced stripper who takes a newbie (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing. It's not just the idea of near-naked men parading around, I promise -- I'm intrigued by the unusual premise and the interesting cast, and am hoping to see a bit of Soderbergh's sly sense of humor. But yeah, the promise of buff, shirtless dudes helps too. After the jump, check out the first image, featuring Tatum, Pettyfer, and Joe Manganiello in military-themed costumes, »

Joyful Noise - January 13

The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but »
Pretty much everyone got to open up a few packages on Christmas yesterday, but today, we have some packages that might just be for the ladies. Warner Bros. has released the first official photo from Steven Soderbergh's male stripper drama Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and some other ripped young men who will be scantily clad in theaters. The last time male strippers were prominent on film was The Full Monty, but these guys put the British gang to shame with McConaughey in his default shirtless form and Tatum and Pettyfer suited up for more than military action. Here's our first look at Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike courtesy of Warner Bros. (via Collider): Magic Mike is directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, Contagion, Out of Sight) and written by Reid Carolin. Channimg Tatum plays the titular male stripper in a story that draws »

Here's our first look at Steven Soderbergh's male stripper film Magic Mike, which gives us our first look at Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, and a shirtless Matthew McConaughey as male strippers.
As much as I love the films that Soderbergh makes, as of right now I have no interest at all in seeing this movie. The trailer will have to sell me on it, as this movie looks like it will be more targeted to the ladies.
The script was written by Reid Carolin and was inspired by real-life story of Tatum's early career as a male stripper. Tatum plays the title character, "who schools a young dancer (Pettyfer) in how to hustle on and off the stage. It's a wild summer of dancing, partying, and women. The inspiration was Channing's own experiences as a stripper when he was 19." McConaughey plays Dallas, a former stripper who owns »
The first official photo from Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper movie Magic Mike starring, from left to right, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, and Channing Tatum, shows the actors in what appears to be a patriotic group number. I love this shot for two reasons: It attempts to keep the mystery alive by only showing us McConaughey shirtless, and it gives us something to debate — which song are they stripping to? My first thought, because McConaughey’s get-up reminded me of Apollo Creed in Rocky IV, was James Brown’s “Living in America.” But that doesn’t feel sexy enough. »

Usually, the headline "Matthew McConaughey Shirtless" is about unsurprising as it gets. It's elemental, no more head-turning than one that might read "Matthew McConaughey Drinks Water." In this case, however, the star's shirtless photo is worth considering.
McConaughey pulls a Chippendales-inspired Uncle Sam in this first photo from Steven Soderberg's "Magic Mike," a film about male strippers in which he stars as the strip club owner, Dallas. Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum, who can be seen dressed in military casuals in the forefront, are the two leads in this film, which is based on Tatum's year on the pole before he began his acting career.
Joe Manganiello, who can also be seen in the picture, has a supporting role, as does Matt Bomer. Manganiello, who is best known for his work on "True Blood," told the La Times a few months ago that he had a compelling anatomic reason for taking the part. »
