In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, »

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. »

As he returns to the world of male striptease on-screen in the deliciously named Magic Mike Xxl, Channing Tatum tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Rich Cohen not to count out an off screen return to the stripper pole, where his career began. ‘Well, we’re going to start a [Magic Mike] show in Vegas, and I’ll never say never,’ he says. In fact, it may be just a thin strip of fabric that stands in the way: ‘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.’ In fact, this quandary was nearly a plot point in Magic Mike Xxl: »
Stepping up for fatherhood. Channing Tatum may strip down to a thong in Magic Mike's sequel, Magic Mike Xxl, but it's all about diapers when he gets home to wife Jenna Dewan Tatum and their 2-year-old daughter, Everly. The Foxcatcher star recalled his baby girl's May 2013 arrival for Vanity Fair's August 2015 cover story. Tatum, 35, and the Witches of East End alum, 34, welcomed their first child at a London hospital on May 31. In that moment, the hunky actor knew that their lives were about to [...] »
If it’s Summertime at the cinema, then it’s sequel time once again! Hey, it was just a couple of days ago when that foul-mouthed toy returned in Ted 2. A few weeks ago another entry in the scare series arrived with Insidious 3. And this all really began on the first of May when those mighty Marvel movie heroes reunited to take down Ultron, while another team, the singin’ Bellas, headed back to the multiplex a couple of weeks later in Pitch Perfect 2. And now movie fans are treated to another epic return gathering of several big screen icons. But this titanic team appeals to a slightly more mature demographic, hence the truly earned “R” rating. Unlike Tony Stark’s crew, these bigger-than-life beef cakes aren’t using their talents against lethal robots. The power of pleasure provides the energy, and propels the plot, in Magic Mike Xxl. »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." The press release adds that "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

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 »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.
“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”
“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.
Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.
Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

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 »

Mark Ruffalo spent his twenties drifting through what he estimates as 600 failed auditions, and later quit Hollywood twice – but these days, he seems to have it all figured out. Especially since he was belted by gamma rays. "As an actor, you can do everything," says Ruffalo, 48, who’s following Avengers: Age of Ultron with a role as a bipolar dad in the indie drama Infinitely Polar Bear, opening in theaters today. "I grew up in the theater, and you could do a musical, a comedy, a tragedy. Those kind of »
In this business you can easily watch up to 200 films in a single year. It's therefore no surprise that it's already hard for this pundit to remember all the films I caught at the Cannes Film Festival, which was less than one month ago. Of course, that doesn't mean some films don't stick with you. One film that made a lasting impression with me over the past 18 months was Maya Forbes' "Infinitely Polar Bear." The autobiographical drama debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and is finally making its way to theaters this week. Inspired by Forbes' relationship with her own bipolar father, the film centers on Cameron (Mark Ruffalo), a man trying to control his behavior after he unexpectedly becomes a de facto single parent to his two young daughters. Ruffalo has delivered many great performances over a storied career, but his work here is unlike anything he's ever done before. »

With Channing Tatum stepping into the boots of the Ragin’ Cajun, fan favourite X-Men character Gambit will be getting his own solo movie next year, and Entertainment Weekly are reporting that Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Gambler’s Rupert Wyatt is in talks to bring the charming, playing card throwing mutant to the big screen (at one point, both Foxcatcher’s Bennett Miller and Requiem for a Dream’s Darren Aronofsky were also being considered). Wyatt’s no stranger to effects heavy spectaculars, but he can also cut to the emotional heart of a subject so I think he’s a good fit for the flawed hero. Tatum recently said in an interview with Empire that Gambit would be an unconventional origin story, with the character, real name Remy LeBeau, being a tortured soul and not a clear cut good or bad guy.

As a father of three, Mark Ruffalo knows a thing or two about raising kids, so it's no wonder his co-star, Zoe Saldana, would turn to him for some advice when it comes to raising her twin boys. One topic that has been plaguing the Avatar actress has been the concept of sleep training. But according to Ruffalo, she should "just forget it." The Foxcatcher actor dished to E! News that he told his Infinitely Polar Bear co-star that it's not worth stressing about. "Let them come in your bed and slowly transition them out," he suggested. He said that trying to force children to sleep in their own bed could cause "major problems." Saldana recently opened up to Jimmy Kimmel about the struggle »
In the land of X-Men right now, Deadpool is in post-production, whilst X-Men: Apocalypse is shooting in Canada, under the watchful eye of Bryan Singer. Both films are due next year, and then there's the small matter of a third X-Men related film due towards the end of 2016, the Gambit spin-off.
This is the one that'll see Channing Tatum take on the role of Remy LeBeau/Gambit, and Fox has the movie earmarked for release on October 7th 2016. And by the looks of things, now it has a director for the film as well.
Rupert Wyatt, who brought the Planet Of The Apes franchise back to life with the rightly acclaimed hit Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, is said to be in talks to direct Gambit. He most recently directed the remake of The Gambler, »
Entertainment Weekly reports that Rupert Wyatt, who directed reboot "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," has been tapped to helm the film, which focuses on the New Orleans-born mutant. Tatum is taking over the role from Taylor Kitsch, who appeared as Gambit in 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." This will be the card-throwing character's first solo flick.
Tatum had long desired to see Gambit get his big screen due, though a movie took some time to materialize. First, the studio needed to sign on; then, the flick floundered for months without a director (and was reportedly rejected by high-profile people including Darren Aronofsky and Tatum's "Foxcatcher" director Bennett Miller). But now, it seems that Wyatt is at the helm, and work can finally start on the feature, »

At long last, the Gambit movie has found its director. Channing Tatum came onboard the X-Men spinoff last year, and 20th Century Fox quickly staked out an October 7, 2016 release date. But the project has been slow-going when it comes to finding a director, with the clock ticking and October 2016 looming closer. Reports swirled that Tatum reached out to folks like Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) to take the helm, but EW now reports that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt has been tapped to steer this particular superhero ship. Gambit aka Remy LeBeau is a fan-favorite character from the X-Men comics, a New Orleans native with a penchant for gambling and turning objects (like playing cards) into throw-able explosives. Taylor Kitsch filled the role in the 2009 misfire X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but with Gambit Tatum aims to jumpstart a new X-Men franchise as the series proper is currently at »

The Hateful Eight will open on Christmas alongside Will Smith’s Concussion, Oliver Stone’s Snowden and the Point Break remake. Meanwhile, all four new arrivals will have to compete with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which arrives a week earlier on December 18th.
In The Hateful Eight, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape.
