Channing Tatum Says Gambit is an Origin Story

16 hours ago | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Channing Tatum is set to star in the upcoming "Gambit" film and there's a chance he will first make an appearance in "X-Men: Apocalypse." During a recent interview with Empire magazine, Tatum spoke about the solo "Gambit" movie. "Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it's killer," he said. "None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the 'X-Men' world. But we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies. It's always about saving the world (laughs), but maybe we're going to shift things a little bit. There's so many ways you can take [an origin story]. You could do it like 'Batman Begins' or a different take and go the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' route. All I can say is, I'm super excited." "Gambit" is set to hit theaters on October 7th, 2016. "X-Men: Apocalypse" will be released earlier on May 27th, »

Channing Tatum Confirms Gambit Will Be An Origin Story, But Not As We Know It

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It cannot be denied that cinema is currently awash with superheroes, and is certain to stay that way for many years to come, if studio release slate announcements are anything to go by. While the partnerships between Warner Bros and DC, and Disney and Marvel respectively are uppermost in the minds of most fans, the reality of comic book film adaptations is less straight-forward, with different characters belonging to different studios. For example, while the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be considered to have begun with Iron Man back in 2008, 20th Century Fox was way ahead of the game, enjoying success with an X-Men franchise – beginning in 2000. That franchise has so far generated seven movies, with a further six planned. Those upcoming films include spin-off titles for Deadpool and Gambit.

The character of Gambit is a mutant with a heavy Cajun accent and a shadowy personal life. He first appeared in »

Cillian Murphy Gives You 25 Sexy Reasons to Watch Peaky Blinders

25 May 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There's this little show on Netflix called Peaky Blinders. Even if you don't totally love it like we do, you may have heard of it because Tom Hardy guest-starred during its recent second season. Hardy's brilliant performance aside, the real star of the show is Cillian Murphy as Thomas Shelby, the leader of a family gang in early 1900s England. Murphy, who turns 39 on Monday, has played some creepy dudes over the years - e.g., Batman Begins's Scarecrow and the psychopath from Red Eye - but this role completely redeems him. If you're not convinced, just take a look below to see Murphy looking 25 kinds of sexy. Seriously, just a peek. Go ahead. »

Channing Tatum talks Gambit movie

25 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

2016 is shaping up to be a big year for Fox and its X-Men franchise; not only do we get X-Men: Apocalypse and the long-awaited Deadpool, but the studio also has another spin-off in the works, with Channing Tatum set to take on the lead role in Gambit. Speaking to Empire in the latest issue of the magazine, Tatum offered up a few words on his preparation for the role of the Cajun card-throwing mutant, as well as an update on the film’s progress.

“I love Gambit,” states Tatum. “I grew up in the South. My father’s from Loiuisiana. We’d go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that. And Gambit always felt the most real of the X-Men to me. He’s kind of a tortured »

Channing Tatum Talks His "Gambit" Love

25 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Channing Tatum has begun doing the first press for "Magic Mike Xxl" with a new interview appearing in the latest issue of Empire Magazine.

Of course, the topic of Tatum's imminent arrival in the X-Men onscreen universe came up with Tatum slated to play Gambit in a solo movie due in 2016. Asked how the film's progressing, he says:

"Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it's killer. None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the X-Men world. But we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies.

It's always about saving the world (laughs), but maybe we're going to shift things a liittle but. There's so many ways you can take [an origin story]. You could do it like Batman Begins, or a different take and go the Guardians of the Galaxy route. All I can say is, I'm super excited. »

Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim confirms “lighter tone” and “more humour” in Season 4, talks DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

19 May 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re all caught up on Arrow then feel free to keep reading to find out the first non-spoilery news about Season 4. But if you’re still working your way through Season 1, 2 or 3 then perhaps you should just hit the back button as there will be some Spoilers ahead…

Season 3 of Arrow recently came to a close and undoubtedly contained some of the darkest moments on the show so far. So much so that it has been compared to elements of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. Not a bad comparison by anyone’s standards but will the show continue the trend or will it branch away for Season 4?

Well show runner Marc Guggenheim has recently been speaking to io9 about his new comic book series The Infinite Adventures of Jonas Quantum and the topic of Arrow came up, obviously. Guggenheim didn’t give too much »

Arrow Will Take On A Lighter Tone In Season 4

15 May 2015 9:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From the death of Sara Lance to the complete collapse of Oliver Queen’s personal life and relationships, Arrow took quite a dark turn in its third season and managed to alienate a large portion of its fanbase in the process. The show has been criticized from the beginning for aping popular Batman stories and simply replacing the Dark Knight with the Emerald Archer (despite the fact that Green Arrow is much more fun and light-hearted in the comics), but it went down the “dark and gritty” rabbit hole head first this year with the introduction of Ra’s al Ghul and Oliver’s journey from troubled hero to leader of the League of Assassins.

Arrow‘s season three finale saw our titular vigilante in a much happier place, as he literally drives off into the sunset with Felicity after defeating Ra’s and hanging up the green hood. According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, »

Amy Adams drop dead gorgeous on Oscars' Red Carpet Amy Adams at the 83rd Academy Awards Looking drop dead gorgeous, Amy Adams is pictured above donning a scintillating blue dress while arriving at the 2011 Oscar ceremony, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in the fast-thumping heart of Hollywood. Adams was – for the third time in six years (more info below) – a Best Supporting Actress nominee. This time around, she was shortlisted for her performance in David O. Russell's The Fighter, a generally well-regarded and surprisingly successful (in the U.S.) boxing drama that earned fellow supporting actress Melissa Leo the evening's Oscar. Another The Fighter actor, Christian Bale (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight), took home the Best Supporting Actor Oscar statuette. In fact, the film's only major cast member left without an Oscar nomination in the acting categories was lead Mark Wahlberg (pictured with wife) – though he did »

Spectre trailer embraces Bond movies past: Who's lurking in the shadows?

Daniel Craig will make his 007 comeback later this year with the release of Spectre, a continuation of the story started in Sam Mendes's Skyfall. Craig has re-energised the Bond franchise since his debut in 2006's Casino Royale, and all signs point towards Spectre being another worthy addition to the series.

Digital Spy runs down everything you need to know about Spectre ahead of its cinema debut on October 23.

A threat from James Bond's past will return

It's all in the title. Crime syndicate Spectre (Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), headed up by Ernst Stavro Blofeld, regularly attempted world domination in Sean Connery's '60s outings, but they've been absent for decades due to an ongoing legal dispute with Thunderball co-creator Kevin McClory.

McClory passed away in 2006 and his Bond rights were eventually regained by Eon/MGM, »

First Trailer For The Wachowski’s Sense8 Arrives

7 May 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lana and Andy Wachowski are about to branch out into a new medium, and anticipation is high as audiences ponder whether their particular brand of storytelling might fare better on the streaming platform Netflix than in cinemas. Since the mixed reactions to 2012’s Cloud Atlas, and the undeniable disappointment of the recent Jupiter Ascending, the heady days of The Matrix brilliance seem increasingly to be a fading memory. For this reason, the arrival of the first trailer for Sense8 is a significant development.

Woven together with a seemingly omnipresent Naveen Andrews, we find eight characters suddenly and inexplicably linked through their own senses. Executive producer Grant Hill outlined the premise of the series to Games Radar.

“At its heart it’s a drama, it’s love stories, it’s contemporary, so it doesn’t have that futuristic element. It has this one basic conceit, which is very much the core »

From 'Interstellar' to 'Memento': Six Awesome Sequences from Christopher Nolan's Films

7 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Warner Bros. / Lionsgate / Paramount Christopher Nolan was asked, during a Q&A at the Tribeca Film Festival, to choose which sequence from his films he considers his favorite. The log chase scene in Insomniac The semi-flip in The Dark Knightc The docking sequence in Interstellarc Every single one of themc Nope. The director answered as some may have expected, with the opening scene from The Dark Knight Rises, often discussed as his most impressive stunt sequence thus far in his directorial career. Call it the prologue scene, call it the airplane hijacking scene, call it what you want, Nolan is proud of it no matter what title you give it. "It took us about two days in Scotland," he told host Bennett Miller and the crowd. He continued: "It was an incredible sort of coming together of months and months of planning by a lot of different members of »

Alternate History: What If George Miller’s Justice League Wasn’t Cancelled?

6 May 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[Alternate History is a new feature in which we take a closer look at some of the bigger “What Ifs” of the movie world.] Marvel and DC have been at war for decades. But whereas most of their previous battles took place in the pages of comic books, the new front is now the world of mega-budget superhero movies, and Marvel has a very, very big lead. DC—by way of its home at Warner Bros.—is currently in “catch up” mode, hoping to explode its own interconnected universe of films with next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, whose very title makes clear the fact that it’s a prelude to a two-part Justice League event. But things almost turned out differently on the DC side. Very differently. In 2007, following the success of Batman Begins and the disappointment of Superman Returns, Warner Bros. was unsure how to proceed with its bevy of comics properties. Christopher Nolan was developing what would become The Dark Knight, but WB was noodling around with the »

Joss Whedon, Josh Trank and the pressures on directors

6 May 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Has being the director of a film in a major franchise become a high-stakes gamble? Ryan looks at the pressures faced by modern filmmakers.

The process of making the behemoth that is Avengers: Age Of Ultron has clearly taken its toll on Joss Whedon. In each successive interview with the press, he’s talked with surprising openness about the process of making the superhero sequel and his battles to places an individual stamp on it; this culminated in a recent podcast with Empire, in which he described the “really, really unpleasant” fight to keep certain scenes in the film.

For an established writer and director like Whedon, who’s been working in TV and film since the 90s, taking on a project as huge and loaded with expectation as a Marvel film is evidently punishing, both physically and psychologically. Imagine how difficult it must be, then, to make the jump »

Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass To Feature Batgirl, Classic Batmobiles And More

3 May 2015 6:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it was announced last week, many were upset by the Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass. Rocksteady revealed little about what content was actually going to be included and instead, all they told us was that it would supply Dlc for the game for six months following its release and come with a hefty $40 price tag. Thankfully, the studio has heard the reaction from fans and has now issued some additional details on what the bonus content will entail.

The most interesting piece of the Dlc, at least to me, is the “Batgirl: A Matter of Family” story expansion. Taking place before the events of Arkham Knight, little is known about the story outside of the fact that this is the first time Batgirl has been playable in the franchise and that it will take place in a brand new location.

Other major story expansions set to be included in »

Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? 10 stars of the hit '90s show then and now

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? Can you face the challenge of the champions? Do you have the courage of the heroes?

"Do you have the will or the skill? Do you have the strength, the speed the heart to be a winner? Deep down in your Soul?"

These were the fundamental questions posed by ITV's original Gladiators, to both the audience and brave contenders who dared to take part. While this particular writer longed to be Lightning (her backflips were to die for), all the seemingly superhuman powerhouses were forces to reckon with - only occasionally tamed by strict referee John Anderson.

Originally hosted by John Fashanu and Ulrika Jonsson, Gladiators was what Saturday nights in the '90s were made of.

So as Saracen (aka Mike Lewis) returns to our small screens to tackle the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course, we pick out some of the »
