Week in Review: Movie theater screens ‘Insidious’ over ‘Inside Out’, kids leave terrified

26 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For those who have seen Inside Out, it’s a scary movie: the fear of moving away, of being unable to feel anything at all, of having your childhood memories that most defined you erased in the existential dilemma of growing up. Heavy stuff.

But it’s not quite a horror movie, and some now very unhappy kids got just that when they attended a screening of the film, only to find out that the theater had accidentally screened the horror movie Insidious: Chapter 3. Oh what’s the difference? The first five letters are the same!

The event occurred in Middletown, Ohio as reported by the city’s Journal-News, in which the writer quotes an angry parent who said she got her money back but already had her children scarred by the mistake. “Moore said images of children being tied up and murdered appeared on the screen, and the »

Hollywood star Channing Tatum hates GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Channing Tatum hates GI Joe

Channing Tatum hates GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

The 35-year-old actor starred as Duke in the 2009 action film, but has admitted it represents one of his biggest career regrets, and also revealed he was always reluctant to appear in the movie.

Reflecting on the film, Channing confessed: “I f***ing hate that movie. I hate that movie.

“I was pushed into that movie. From ‘Coach Carter’, they signed me to a three-picture deal. They give you the contract and they go, ‘Three-picture deal, here you go’. And as a young [actor] you’re like, ‘Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that’.”

Channing was a fan of the cartoon growing up and admitted that, in a lot of senses, he was fortunate to be given the opportunity to star in a movie of that magnitude. »

See Channing Tatum and Jimmy Fallon Act Out 'Magic Mike' Scenes ... Written by Kids!

24 June 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Magic Mike" has a whole new meaning when kids are in charge! Jimmy Fallon asked Channing Tatum to perform some scenes from his stripping sequel during his appearance on "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday -- but there was a big twist. The late-night host asked some kids to write scripts for what they thought a movie called "Magic Mike" might be about. Channing, of course, was more than willing to act out the scenes -- and the result was hilarious! The first scene revolved around a young boy who wanted the film's title character to fix a flat tire ... with the help of his magical, uh, bike pump. It only got stranger from there, as the two next found themselves acting out a scene involving aliens. Talk about a vivid imagination! Check out the video above to see Fallon and Tatum sing "Magic Bird Come Fly With Me." Not only »

Channing Tatum Says He Hates GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra

24 June 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

In a new interview with "The Howard Stern Show," Channing Tatum was asked about the "GI Joe" franchise. The actor took the opportunity to explain how he feels about the first film, "GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra." "I'll be honest. I f*cking hate that movie. I hate that movie, I was pushed into doing that movie," he said. "From [seeing me in] 'Coach Carter,' they signed me to a three-picture deal. I'm sitting there and they give you the contract and they go, 'Three-picture deal, here you go.' And as a young [actor], you're like, 'Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I'm doing that!'" Tatum ended up playing Duke, but that's not the role he was hoping to get. He said: "The studio calls up and they're like 'Hey, we got a movie for you. We're going to send it to you.'

Channing Tatum Was Forced to Be G.I. Joe: 'I F--king Hate That Movie'

24 June 2015 2:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, they say knowing is half the battle -- and now you know the truth: Channing Tatum f--king hated "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra." He never wanted to be G.I. Joe. He's embarrassed to have been a part of it. He only did the blockbuster because the studio would've sued him if he said no. So what you really need to know is not to sign long-term contracts unless you're ready to sell out your dignity.

The topic came up when Channing was promoting "Magic Mike Xxl" on Howard Stern's show, and Howard brought up the millions than Chan's "G.I. Joe" made. They noticed that Channing sounded embarrassed about it, and he admitted he was. Here's his story:

Channing Tatum rips apart GI Joe: "I f**king hate that movie"

24 June 2015 2:17 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Channing Tatum has revealed that he isn't the biggest fan of GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra - in fact, he *f**king hate[s]" it.

Speaking to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show, Tatum said that his early leading role was forced upon him by Paramount, and he doesn't have good memories of the shoot.

"Look, I'll be honest. I f**king hate that movie. I hate that movie," Tatum said of the 2009 action film.

"I was pushed into doing that movie. [After] Coach Carter, they signed me for a three-picture deal. And as a young [actor], you're like, 'Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I'm doing that!'"

Tatum said that he didn't want to taint the fictional soldier and that he actually wanted to play Snake Eyes, a role that was given to Ray Park.

"The script wasn't any good," he said. "I didn't want to do something that I thought was 1) bad, »

Channing Tatum on G.I. Joe: "I ******* hate that movie"

23 June 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It would be fair to say that Channing Tatum is not a fan of G.I.Joe: The Rise Of Cobra...

As he hits the promotional trail for the upcoming Magic Mike Xxl, Channing Tatum has appeared on the Howard Stern radio show, and, er, was fairly candid when the host raised the subject of G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra. This was the first G.I. Joe movie, back in 2009, released before Tatum's star and box office clout suddenly rocketed.

"Look, I'll be honest", Tatum said to Stern, "I fucking hate that movie. I hate that movie".

So, er, what happened?

"I was pushed into that movie", he explained. "From Coach Carter, they signed me to a three picture deal. They give you the contract and they go 'three picture deal, here you go'. And as a young [actor] you're like 'oh my god, that sounds amazing, I'm doing that'. »

Channing Tatum on 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra': I Hate That Movie

23 June 2015 5:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Years before becoming a box office sensation, Channing Tatum starred as Duke in Paramount's 2009 action-thriller G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which grossed more than $300 million worldwide and helped show that he could carry a big action movie. He also reprised his role in 2013's sequel G.I. Joe Retaliation, although his character was killed fairly early on. As it turns out, though, the actor didn't really want to play Duke in the first place, forced into the role as a part of a three-picture deal that he signed with Paramount after his feature film debut role in 2005's Coach Carter. During an appearance on the Howard Stern Show earlier today, Channing Tatum revealed that he "f---ing hates" the movie, and that he originally wanted to play Snake Eyes.

Channing Tatum bashes one of his biggest movies

And you thought you hated "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra." During an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday, Channing Tatum revealed that not only is the 2009 action-figure adaptation not one of his favorite roles, he in fact totally freaking despises it. “Look, I’ll be honest. I fucking hate that movie. I hate that movie,” said Tatum after Howard pegged the film as his breakthrough role. “I was pushed into doing that movie. From a movie that -- from 'Coach Carter,' they signed me for a three-picture deal...They give you the contract and they go, ‘three-picture deal, here you go!’ And as a young [actor], you’re like, ‘Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that!’...So time goes by, and you get other jobs, and you're building your quote, and things happen, and then you...have a dream job that you wanna go do. »

Channing Tatum Reflects On G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra: "I F**king Hate That Movie"

23 June 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Talking to Howard Stern earlier today, Channing Tatum didn't hold back when asked for his feelings on G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, a movie which Rotten Tomatoes sums up as, "a cartoonish, over-the-top action fest propelled by silly writing, inconsistent visual effects, and merely passable performances." The actor doesn't seem to disagree with their assessment, as he told the host the following about how he really feels about the movie. "Look, I’ll be honest. I f**king hate that movie. I hate that movie. I was pushed into doing that movie. From Coach Carter, they signed me to a three-picture deal […] They give you the contract and they go, ‘Three-picture deal, here you go.’ And as a young [actor], you’re like, ‘Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that!’" As for what he believes was wrong with the 2009 movie, Tatum added: "The script wasn’t any good. »

Channing Tatum Slams ‘G.I. Joe': ‘I Hate That Movie’

23 June 2015 3:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Did you dislike “G.I. Joe”? Don’t worry — its star, Channing Tatum, did too.

In an interview with Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radioshow Tuesday morning, Tatum revealed that he wasn’t a fan of one of his first big leading roles, “G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra.” He said contract with Paramount forced him to do it, and he still doesn’t look back on it fondly.

“Look, I’ll be honest. I f–king hate that movie. I hate that movie,” Tatum said of the 2009 tentpole. “I was pushed into doing that movie … [After] ‘Coach Carter,’ they signed me for a three-picture deal … And as a young [actor], you’re like, ‘Oh my god, that sounds amazing, I’m doing that!'”

The “Magic Mike Xxl” actor revealed, however, that as he got older and wanted to pursuit other roles, the studio called him about doing “G.I. »

Channing Tatum Really ‘F*cking Hated’ Doing G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

23 June 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Channing Tatum fans who fell in love with his abs post–Magic Mike probably don't remember he once starred in 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. And he'd like to keep it that way. During an interview with Tatum on Howard Stern's radio show, Stern referenced the film as a turning point in Channing's career. And while he meant it as a compliment, Channing couldn't stop laughing. Why the awkward reaction? "Look, I’ll be honest. I fucking hate that movie," he confessed. "I was pushed into doing that movie." Going into it, he explained, he was hot off the heels of Coach Carter (in which he apparently played the "token white kid") and signed a three-picture deal because he was young and needed the money. Years later, when Paramount called him during the writer's strike to fulfill his contract, he says that's when G.I. Joe came into his life. »

Channing Tatum "F--king Hates" 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra'

23 June 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I used to have Sirius satellite radio, but that was back when I had to commute to my job. Now, I roll out of bed, pick myself up off the ground, stagger into my little office and the work day begins. So, I've been without Howard Stern for several years now, not because I ever tire of listening to his show (it is the best radio out there by a mile) but because it just wasn't worth paying for something I'd only be able to listen to while driving five minutes to the gym. That said, it's nice to see Stern is still delivering with his celebrity interviews and at this point a celeb has to realize if they're going in to talk with Stern they better be ready to discuss details. Not only does Stern discuss Tatum's movies as he's out promoting Magic Mike Xxl, he asks about a »

“I F*cking Hate That Movie”: Channing Tatum Really Didn't Like ‘G.I. Joe,' Says 'Ghostbusters' Is In A "Gestation Period"

23 June 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was a time when Channing Tatum was just "that kid" in "Coach Carter," but four years later, he would be headlining a major franchise with "G.I. Joe: Rise Of The Cobra." However, while promoting "Magic Mike Xxl" on "The Howard Stern Show" this morning, the actor revealed his true feelings about the end result and his mixed feelings about signing up in the first place. “I fucking hate that movie,” he candidly said of "G.I. Joe: Rise Of The Cobra," which certainly explains why he was killed off in "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." Tatum said that, following the success of the inspirational Samuel L. Jackson movie, big deals started coming his way, and it was too good an opportunity to resist. “I was pushed into doing that movie…they give you the contract and and they go, 'Three-picture deal, here you go.'

Trevor Rabin’s Rousing Scores a Testament to Life After Yes

23 June 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Trevor Rabin had no idea that, on Nov. 4, 2008, he was about to be immortalized.

Barack Obama had just been elected president of the United States, and as he finished his acceptance speech, the music that began to play was Rabin’s inspirational theme from the football movie “Remember the Titans.”

For a white South African whose family fought against apartheid when it was not just unfashionable but downright dangerous, this prominent showcase of his music — written for a movie about black and white high-school players learning to get along and win the season — was especially meaningful.

“I was happy I was on the winning ticket,” Rabin says with a laugh.

Yet that’s just one moment in a long, strange trip that began in Johannesburg and ended in Hollywood, where Rabin is now an in-demand film composer with no fewer than 13 Jerry Bruckheimer movies under his belt (including “Titans,” “Armageddon »

Weekend Report (cont.): Solid Starts for 'Ringer,' 'Paddington,' While 'Blackhat' Bombs

18 January 2015 10:48 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report: 'Sniper' Sets January Record with Stunning $90 Million Debut"In a distant second place, The Wedding Ringer opened to an estimated $20.6 million at 3,003 locations. That's the fourth $20-million-plus debut in a row for Kevin Hart, following Ride Along, About Last Night (2014) and Think Like a Man Too. At the same time, it's slightly concerning that this only opened to half as much as Ride Along, which took in $41.5 million on the same weekend last year.More so than on previous movies, Kevin Hart was the primary selling point for The Wedding Ringer. This calls to mind last Summer's Tammy, which opened at the same level ($21.6 million) and was sold entirely on Melissa McCarthy's star power. In both cases, the $20-million-plus opening reinforces how popular the star is. As with Tammy, though, The Wedding Ringer's opening was a big drop off from Hart's previous movies. It »
