We all have our cinematic blind spots, and until yesterday, The Notebook was one of mine. To a certain extent, I think it was a forgivable one: This movie has become mandatory viewing for a lot of young women (which means a lot of their boyfriends have seen it as well), but I'm a 34-year-old gay dude — it eluded me, you know? Still, I've watched so many movies over the last decade, like The Vow or The Fault in Our Stars, that were either influenced by The Notebook or were green-lit in some part due to its success; it seemed only fair, then, to give the Ryan Gosling/Rachel McAdams romantic drama its proper due.Last night, on the eve of the movie's tenth anniversary, I finally watched The Notebook for the first time. It was good, mostly! I think I get it. It's a very handsomely made, throwback love »

Females made a vow to see Channing Tatum and “22 Jump Street” this weekend and clearly delivered at the box office.
The R-rated comedy vehicle, co-starring Jonah Hill, burst onto the Father’s Day box office scene with a superb $60 million debut, playing equally well with men and women. It’s another example of the power of the female audience (sadly one that’s still needed) and a warning to filmmakers that ignoring this demographic would be to their financial peril.
“That formula really works because you get everybody in the theater,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “Guys don’t feel put out and women don’t feel threatened because it’s all in this comedic wrapper. It sets the stage for men and women to go on a date.”

Was everyone sleeping on Channing Tatum until two years ago, when he won over audiences with the irresistible combo platter of Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street, and The Vow? In his review of the new 22 Jump Street, Variety film critic Scott Foundas admits that “Tatum has been too good too many times now to still be deemed a revelation,” but still muses that he might be “a very deft comic actor who only belatedly came into a full sense of just how funny he can be.” I don’t fault people for being surprised by Tatum’s acting chops — his screen persona is all about that element of surprise, since he often plays against his lunkhead looks by startling you with unexpected feats of graceful physicality and offbeat comic timing — but I do think he’s always had them, and here’s some pre-2012 proof.A Guide to Recognizing Your SaintsA »

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are recounting their meet-cute, but the details are proving…controversial. It was 2007, apparently, right after Hill starred in Superbad and Tatum in Step Up. They were familiar with each other’s work, but had never met until one fateful night at West Hollywood’s Dan Tana’s, where they happened to catch each other’s eye across the restaurant…
“Hold up, hold up,” interrupts Tatum, 34. “It wasn’t after Step Up. It was The Vow or something.” Hill, 30, rolls his eyes. “The Vow was, like, way later,” he says. “That was right before Jump Street came out, »

Chicago – Sure, I’ll admit it. With so many new films to screen and review, I’ll choose the sci-fi action/thriller from the man behind the Bourne flicks over a movie that’s being called “the greatest romance story of this decade”.
But when realizing I only have time this week to write “The Fault in Our Stars” or “Edge of Tomorrow,” the choice – albeit unusual for me because of my love for sci-fi – comes quickly without thinking twice. While comparing them is like apples and orange, the first won’t stand the test of time while the latter with stay with you for years to come.
My interest in “The Fault in Our Stars” wasn’t typical. It was piqued while interviewing co-stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort at the Chicago red-carpet premiere not for this romantic drama with a $12 million budget but for the blockbuster “Divergent” with an $85 million budget. »

By all accounts, Josh Boone’s adaptation of the bestselling John Green tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars will be a force to be reckoned with when it opens in theaters on Friday. Just how huge the film about love-struck, cancer-stricken teens will be, however, is still unclear – but we know that the box office haul is going to be massive.
Today, Fandango noted that The Fault in Our Stars has out-paced the Rachel McAdams-Channing Tatum starrer The Vow, the film which had previously garnered the most advance ticket sales on the 14-year-old site. According to a non-scientific survey of 1,000 Fault in Our Stars ticket-buyers, 81 percent have read the book, and 80 percent plan to see the movie with a group of friends. Meanwhile, almost 65 percent said star Shailene Woodley, whose last film Divergent also opened to huge numbers, was a motivating factor in their buying a ticket.

“The Fault in Our Stars” has broken the Fandango record for the biggest pre-selling love story in the company's 14-year history, and is also the ticket service's biggest pre-selling drama of the year, Fandango said on Tuesday. “The Vow,” a 2012 romantic drama starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, previously held the record in the romantic drama category. It grossed $41.2 million domestically during its opening weekend.

John Green's fans love him. As in, Love him. The "Fault in Our Stars" scribe has nearly 2.5 million(!) followers on Twitter and his vlogbrothers YouTube videos routinely rack up 500,000 to a million hits. Which means that the Friday release of the film version of "The Fault in Our Stars," based on Green's novel about two teenagers who meet in a cancer support group and fall in love, is going to be (in the inimitable words of Joe Biden) a Bfd. In fact, according to Fandango, "Fault" has already broken the company's record to become the biggest pre-selling love story ticket ever. (The previous titleholder was Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams's 2012 "The Vow.") Fandango also notes that "Fault" is the most-anticipated film of this weekend (with "Edge of Tomorrow" and "Maleficent" close behind). Apparently, the ticket sales company also performed a survey of over 1,000 users who bought advance seats for "Fault in Our Stars, »

“The Fault in Our Stars” has become the biggest pre-selling romantic drama in Fandango’s history, as the adaptation of John Green’s best-selling novel prepares to break millions of moviegoers’ hearts this weekend.
The online ticketer did not say how many moviegoers have reserved a spot in theaters, but the film is out-pacing “The Vow,” “Safe Haven” and “Dear John” at the same point in their lead-ups to release. “The Vow,” a 2012 romance with Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams was the previous record-holder and opened to $41.2 million.
There is one important caveat: This group of romantic titles does not include the “Twilight” films, which Fandango characterizes as fantasy romances. Critics may use harsher descriptors.
“The Fault in Our Stars” features rising stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort and is projected to debut to more than $30 million this weekend. This “Love Story” for Millennials centers on two teenagers who meet »

In 2006, Channing Tatum's sexy dance moves and seriously hot onscreen chemistry with his now-wife, Jenna Dewan, first stole our hearts in Step Up, prompting us to go back and ogle his abs in She's the Man - and we've been on the Channing Tatum train ever since. He really brought it all together in 2012, combining his knack for shirtlessness and sexy dancing abilities in Magic Mike, making us laugh in 21 Jump Street, and making us cry in The Vow. Now, Channing is going where he's never gone before: the world of superheroes. Channing was cast as Remy LeBeau (aka Gambit) in the next X-Men movie. To celebrate, let's take a look at some of Channing's hottest moments and count all the ways we love the sexy star. »

Charismatic, chaotic criminals Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Chestnut Barrow have been the subject of several films and TV series, most famously in Arthur Penn’s 1967 outing starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. But that doesn't deter Michael Sucsy, who has revisionist tale Go Down Together set up with Nicholas Hoult and Emilia Clarke aboard to play the duo.Up In The Air’s Sheldon Turner worked with Proof’s David Auburn to adapt Jeff Guinn’s tome Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde. In development for a few years now, it’ll chronicle a new take on the exploits of the bank robbers, who left at least seven people dead as they held up banks across the Depression-era South in the Us. Until, of course, they were famously brought down in a shoot-out with authorities.It's something of a change of pace for Sucsy, »
Two of the hottest young actors working today, Game of Thrones‘s Emilia Clarke and X-Men star Nicholas Hoult, have just boarded Go Down Together, Michael Sucsy’s take on iconic American bank robbing couple, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.
The project has a script by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air) and David Auburn (Proof), who adapted the film from Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde, a non-fiction book by Jeff Guinn. Described as a “revisionist take” on the two young lovers who robbed banks across the Depression-era South in the 1930s, killing at least seven people along the way, Go Down Together has been in the works for several years, but now that two stars are attached, it looks primed to move forward quickly.

X-men: Days Of Future Past star Nicholas Hoult and the Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke are set to team up to play the legendary duo Bonnie And Clyde. Michael Sucsy (The Vow) will direct the adaptation of the Jeff Guinn's non-fiction book "Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde." If Emilia Clarke is trying to be recognized for being more than the girl from Game Of Thrones, she's well on her way. She is currently filming the lead role »

Go Down Together has been written by Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air) and David Auburn (Proof), with Michael Sucsy (The Vow) directing. According to The Wrap, the film “is a revisionist take on the legend of Clyde Barrow and femme fatale Bonnie Parker, young lovers who left at least seven bodies in their wake as they robbed banks throughout the Depression-era South.”

Everyone's favorite Cajun has been cast for future X-Men films.
When she spoke to Total Film she confirmed "It is Channing.". She went on to say the following:
Well, he’s a rogue, Channing, he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau. And he can handle the action, we all know that. And he’s got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie [2006's She's the Man] with him. So I think he’ll be great. He’ll be great for Gambit. And he’s a Southerner, too. He’s not from New Orleans, but he is a Southerner, he understands that world. And you know Gambit loves New Orleans.
Channing is known for his roles »

Atom Egoyan makes challenging films, but even by his standards, his 2014 output is going to be tough to watch. While his courtroom drama Devil’s Knot gets a Us release on May 9 – a film about the trial of three teenagers accused of killing three young children in a satanic ritual – his follow-up will be screening in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, and is currently called Captives - though that may change for release in different territories.
Starring Ryan Reynolds, as a father whose young daughter mysteriously disappears, Captives seems to be a film that gradually unfurls – transforming into something increasingly sinister and disturbing, as layers of grimness are deliberately peeled back. It would appear that Egoyan – along with co-writer David Fraser – has created something that relentlessly preys on the worst fears of the audience, including bad things happening to our children, loss, uncertainty, powerlessness, and that horrifying discomfort of intrusion. »

Even if it is just a ploy to shoehorn another pandering award to a popular young star, I kind of dig the MTV's Trailblazer Award as a general concept. It's kind of the opposite of a lifetime achievement honor, reserved for actors or actresses of a young age whose work paves the way for others in the industry. And the first two annual recipients were women, which is nice (Emma Stone in 2012 and Emma Watson in 2013). This year the honor is going to a dude for the first time: Channing Tatum. Tatume is "the quintessential leading man for the MTV audience," MTV President Stephen Friedman said. "He proves that an action hero can have both a quick wit and a large heart. Whether he's baring his soul in 'The Vow,' his chest in 'Magic Mike,' or his humor in '21 Jump Street,' Channing proves that by committing everything, »

Friedman said: "Channing Tatum is the quintessential leading man for the MTV audience. He proves that an action hero can have both a quick wit and a large heart.
Channing Tatum will literally be a trailblazer as he is set to become the first man to receive the Trailblazer Award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on April 13.
The award, given by the channel ”for boldly paving the way with his unique and diverse path in the film industry,” will be presented by a pregnant Mila Kunis – his co-star in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Jupiter Ascending.
