2 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Channing Tatum's role in the dance film Step Up broke him as one of Hollywood's favorite leading men, and while he's grown into a megastar, his dancing skills are never far behind. While shooting his Vanity Fair cover with Annie Leibowitz, Tatum showcased seven dance moves in 30 seconds.

From the twist to the funky chicken, Tatum gave a brief taste of his abilities for each of the moves in a clip soundtracked by Ginuwine's "Pony." His abilities to vogue, however, top it all, confirming that he has become »

It's Not Hot in Here, It's Just These Sexy Channing Tatum Movie Moments

2 July 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Channing Tatum stars in Magic Mike Xxl, which is finally out in theaters, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate than with plenty of onscreen eye candy. In the new movie, he's making us swoon with his sexy strip routines, but Tatum's dance moves first won hearts back in 2006 with Step Up - including the heart of his costar-turned-wife, Jenna Dewan. Since then, the heartthrob has shown that he can look hot no matter what he's wearing, whether it's a uniform, a swimsuit, or little more than a tie. Heck, he even charmed us in She's the Man. Take a look at Channing Tatum's sexiest movie moments over the years, and if it's just Magic Mike Xxl pictures you're looking for, we have you covered. And if you want to obsess over the movie, we've got something for that too. »

Get Your Dollars Out! Channing Tatum Says He Still Might Strip Again In Real Life

1 July 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Channing Tatum's not ready to throw in the thong just yet!  The actor covers the August issue of Vanity Fair, where he opens up about his stripper past and gushes about his baby girl, Everly Tatum.  While Tatum's no stranger to stripping on the big screen in both "Magic Mike" and "Magic Mike Xxl," the actor also says he wouldn't write off taking the stage again in real life just yet.  "Well, we’re going to start a [Magic Mike] show in Vegas, and I’ll never say never," he tells the mag. "I wouldn’t mind going out there and doing it one more time. Or maybe twice. But, you know, every time I’ve put on a thong and am getting ready to walk onstage again, I’m like, ‘Why do I want to do this?’ It’s very uncomfortable to be in a thong in front of a thousand people. »

Magic Mike Xxl review: “The feel good movie of the summer”

1 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Magic Mike Xxl review: Feels like a lighter version of the first movie – dumbed down but pumped up to the max, which might make it the best comedy of the summer so far. Magic Mike Xxl review

It’s a muggy Monday evening in a Leicester Square cinema and I’m sat three rows back in a recently refurbished Empire. Tonight’s screening is running late, unusually by around twenty minutes or so. Thinking something is technically wrong with the screening gear, we fear the worst, but a few moments later Channing Tatum enters the auditorium with a few buddies and a massive entourage, and the packed audience erupts. Just a few feet away from the man himself I find myself, a happily marred man in his late thirties, screaming the handsome one’s name with what seems to be an audience made up of 80 percent women. Welcome to the world of Magic Mike Xxl, »

1 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Magic Mike Xxl” star Channing Tatum appears on the cover of Vanity Fair’s August issue and talks about the idea of a return to stripping, the death of the movie star and the kinds of movies he wants to make in the future. The star who first broke out in the 2006 dance film “Step Up” also showed off some fancy footwork in a video clip on the magazine’s website, performing everything from the chicken dance to a Madonna-style vogue. Tatum, who began his career as a male stripper, said in the interview that he won’t rule out the possibility of. »

1 July 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Channing Tatum has a movie out today, have you heard? It's like Step Up but with more g-strings. To celebrate the occasion, Vanity Fair has a video where they have the Tater do seven different dances in 30 seconds, from the running man to voguing, set, obviously, to Ginuwine's "Pony." Tatum also has a voguing sequence in Magic Mike Xxl, so it's not surprising that he really puts his heart into it. Obviously, this is why he's our favorite stromo of them all. »

Male Stripper to Movie Star: The Evolution of Channing Tatum

1 July 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I didn't want to move or act like a rich man. I wanted to dance in a pair of jeans. I wanted to dance like the man in the streets." – Gene Kelly

It's hard to imagine — let alone remember — living in a world where it wasn't a universally acknowledged truth that Channing Tatum used to be a stripper. Today, that particular chapter of his origin story seems as inextricable from the 35-year-old actor's story as Ginger Rogers is from Fred Astaire's career, or Scientology is from that of Tom Cruise, »

Why 'Magic Mike Xxl' Is Still a Soderbergh Movie: Review and Roundup

30 June 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Even though I enjoyed Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 “Magic Mike,” I went into Gregory Jacobs’ sequel “Xxl” with low expectations, expecting to be entertained by Channing Tatum, at least. That's because the well-muscled model-turned-actor, 36, who broke out a decade ago in the gritty street drama “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints” and energetic dance romance “Step Up” has become a reliable movie star.  What does that mean? No matter how bad the movie—and there have been a few Hollywood clinkers, from “The Dilemma” and the two “G.I. Joe” actioners to “White House Down” and "Jupiter Ascending"—he’s believable. The bad stuff bounces off him like Teflon, and he survives with his charisma intact. Every time. Tatum’s just delightful to watch on screen, no matter what he does, drama ("Foxcatcher," “Stop Loss”) or comedy (the “21 Jump Street” series). Did his background as a stripper make him confident and »

Film Review: ‘Magic Mike Xxl’

29 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One needn’t have spent much time on dating sites to know that guys have a tendency to exaggerate where size is concerned, so fans of Warner Bros.’ 2012 striptease sleeper should set their expectations accordingly over “Magic Mike Xxl.” Meanwhile, someone in the studio’s marketing department deserves a raise for so enticingly fluffing the title of a sequel that sheds the newbie (Alex Pettyfer), the emcee (Matthew McConaughey) and nearly all traces of plot, yielding an encore whose putative selling point is getting to know the fellas who shook their stuff in the next-to-buff. Trading the “A Star Is Born” angle for a rambling road-trip format, “Magic Mike Xxl” offers creative dance numbers for demos underserved by the original — post-menopausal divorcees, women of color and, in one odd scene, gay fans open to seeing these hunks in drag — but seems unlikely to measure up to its predecessor’s $113 million score. »

Magic Mike Xxl review: The film you feared the original would be

29 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Gregory Jacobs; Screenwriter: Reid Carolin; Starring: Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash, Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard; Running time: 115 mins; Certificate: 15

In some ways Magic Mike Xxl is the film that many feared the original might be (and wasn't), emphasising pelvic gyrations over narrative movement. Channing Tatum still packs a bagful of charm, along with his merry band of male strippers (minus Matthew McConaughey), but there is little point to the big reunion that sees them all driving down to South Carolina, except to stuff as many dollar bills in their pants as they can.

Indeed, the plot could have been ripped from the dully prolific Step Up franchise in which Tatum first made his name, with strippers from all over the country due to compete at a hotel on Myrtle Beach. At first glance it appears that Mike has left all that behind him, »

Film Review: ‘Any Body Can Dance 2′

18 June 2015 7:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

All that glitters may not be gold, but whatever it is, it’s sure to be found somewhere in “Any Body Can Dance 2,” the insanely exuberant sequel to 2013’s Bollywood/hip-hop 3D dance extravaganza that handily trumps that film’s quotient of day-glo colors, tsunamis of sweat/feathers/confetti/sequins, and acrobatic footwork that scoffs at gravity the way a pubescent teen does at an overprotective parent. There’s nothing new under the stage lights here, in a competition/redemption narrative that seems to have been spat out by a screenplay bot after being fed copies of “Step Up,” “Magic Mike” and “Stand and Deliver”; but especially during its first half, the movie’s onscreen gyrations will brook no dissent. Few sequels are so keenly aware of exactly who their target audience is and what they want, which should ensure that this Disney/Utv Studios production shatters its predecessor’s $7 million worldwide gross. »

16 Bizarre and Ridiculous Things We Just Learned About Channing Tatum

18 June 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Channing Tatum conducted an Ama on Reddit this Wednesday, and he gave us so many hilarious quotes, we couldn't pick a favorite. Channing's promoting the hotly anticipated Magic Mike Xxl, which he recently vowed would make cinematic history. The Ama also comes fresh off his surprise appearance at La's Gay Pride Parade with Matt Bomer. We can't properly convey the sheer brilliance of all the quotes, so keep scrolling to see them for yourself. 1. His favorite sandwich is either really disgusting or totally amazing. "It's very complicated. Bread, white. Peanut butter, not crunchy, creamy. Grape jelly, double portion, more than you think should actually fit on a piece of white bread. Bread. And then some Cheetos shoved in there, and then you're good to go." 2. His penis totally has a nickname. "Gilbert." 3. He has a foolproof plan for the imminent zombie apocalypse.

Elizabeth Banks on Becoming a Director, Mentoring Young Women

5 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s no news to Elizabeth Banks that her “Pitch Perfect 2″ isn’t something that happens everyday.

“We did something really rare,” she says of the movie, on which she made her directorial feature debut. “We made a movie that was directed by a woman, written by a woman, produced by a woman and stars a poster full of women.”

The accomplishment is only one of the reasons Banks has been chosen as one of the honorees at the 12th annual Inspiration Awards, held by the Step Up organization, where she’ll be honored with a special ceremony on Friday, along with Hudson Jeans CEO Peter Kim and one of the teenagers from the Step Up program.

Step Up aims to propel girls from under-resourced communities to finish high school, enter college and more, with such methods as after-school programs and mentorships. Banks got to meet some of the »
