Screen Crush bitches about the long uneventful Part 1s of modern franchise culture as I've been bitching about forever. But as long as audiences keep buying tickets, why should Hollywood stop? They make double the money this way.
Critic Wire the terrifying children's book in The Babadook (opening Friday!) is now a real book you can buy

Empire more new projects for Channing Tatum and »

There was talk a while ago that Channing Tatum might direct the Magic Mike sequel, but that job instead went to Gregory Jacobs. Then came the announcement that Tatum and producing partner Reid Carolin are attached to make an adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s novel The Son. And while that hasn’t yet come to fruition, they’ve also set up another potential co-directing project with Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock.With Tatum and Carolin also aboard to produce, the pair is now looking for a writer to adapt Matthew Quick’s book, which is set in a high school. The main character is a seriously troubled student to plans a murder-suicide pact with his best friend, before a courageous teacher – potentially a role Tatum will fill in the film – acts to try and intervene.Given that it comes from the writer of Silver Linings Playbook, the novel has naturally attracted plenty of attention, »

People unveiled its annual Sexiest Man Alive cover this week, bestowing the honor upon living, breathing Ken doll, Chris Hemsworth. The Australian actor has played Thor on the big screen, has muscles in places we didn’t know existed, and has the kind of pleasant face for the photos that come with picture frames. But he’s far from the sexiest man alive.
If there was any justice in this world the title would go to Joe Manganiello. The former True Blood star is a fitness fanatic, and previously stripped down on screen in Magic Mike. (His character is named “Big Dick Richie” for crying out loud! What more do you want?!) Luckily Manganiello is reprising his role in the 2015 sequel Magic Mike Xxl, so we’ll have ample opportunity to appreciate his fine form. And of course, there’s always next year. Feast your eyes on »

The Weinstein Company adaptation of Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock has found its directors in Magic Mike‘s Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin. The pair, who wrote and produced both Mike pics, are also set to produce Matthew Quick’s young adult novel, under their Free Association production label, with Tatum eyeing up the lead role.
Based on the original book by Quick, Leonard Peacock tells the contemporary story of a teenager who takes a loaded pistol to school. Confronting his four best friends, he reveals hours of secrets leading up to the fateful moment. Should he take on a role, Tatum is thought to be considering the part of a heroic teacher who intervenes.
If the subject matter might not suit your tastes, then consider the author. Quick’s previous page-to-screen effort, Silver Linings Playbook, went on to score enormous successes both critically and financially. He’s an incredibly skilled »

Get ready for Channing Tatum, Director. The prolific actor/producer has been enjoying some very deserved rave reviews recently for his performance in the drama Foxcatcher, and now it looks as though he’s ready to take his career to the next level with directing. Tatum is attached to co-direct an adaptation of Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick’s Ya book Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock for The Weinstein Company. Tatum will be directing the picture with his producing partner Reid Carolin, with whom he developed Magic Mike and its upcoming sequel Magic Mike Xxl. More on this interesting directorial debut after the jump. It’s no secret that Tatum has been aspiring to direct sometime soon, and earlier this year word surfaced that he and Carolin were toying with the idea of helming an adaptation of Jo Nesbø’s crime thriller novel The Son. That project remains in development with the two attached, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 opens in theaters this week and, as expected, leading lady Jennifer Lawrence has been making the publicity rounds and, as expected, she’s been totally charming and lovable. (Not too many stars can get away with singing this terribly and still be endearing.) J. Law not only steadfastly remains America’s Sweetheart, but she only seems to be getting better at it. Whether she’s facing the celebrity nudes leak scandal head on or making a Gif-worthy funny face, the admiration for the Oscar-winning actress still seems to know no bounds. While the outspoken star has had her share of critics thanks to some of her seemingly insensitive comments or misconstrued jokes about Meryl Streep, there’s been no major backlash or outcry. In Hollywood, Lawrence is pretty infallible, but she’s not the only one. Here are 12 other stars that seem »

Matthew McConaughey is becoming quite the strip tease! After news broke that he would not be returning for the Magic Mike sequel, a new report claims the heartthrob will be reprising his role as the "law breaking" Dallas.
Page Six claims that though McConaughey will not be one of the main characters in the male stripper sequel, Magic Mike Xxl, he will be making a cameo. We'll take it!
Commenting on the movie's dance rehearsals, Tatum told Esquire magazine, "There are a lot of apologies. A lot of 'I'm sorry that ran into your chin' and 'Let me take my thigh off your neck.'"
There's no doubt Channing Tatum is playing the role he was born for as Magic Mike. With his built physique, dashing good looks and killer dance moves, it may seem like his male stripper alter ego in Magic Mike Xxl is all natural, but his part entails more than meets the eye.
The 34-year-old actor dishes to Esquire all about how he is currently preparing for the role that leaves so many drooling.
Preparation starts with "the stripper's diet." He says, "I would like a beer. I would like to have some crab. I love eating. But this is what I'm doing right now." What he’s doing is eating half of one chicken breast with water.
It's not just the food, though. He must maintain the workout regimen and attend dance rehearsals twice a day, by himself »

Magic Mike may be steamy on the big screen, but behind the scenes things are a little more complicated. The movie's star Channing Tatum dished on his preparations for the upcoming sequel to the surprise hit stripper flick, touching on all of the awkward moments behind the finished product. "There are a lot of apologies," Tatum, 34, said in a new cover story interview with Esquire about the Magic Mike 2 rehearsals. "A lot of 'I'm sorry that ran into your chin' and 'Let me take my [...] »
Channing Tatum is the man of the hour (more on that at the bottom of this post) as Foxcatcher made its way into six theaters this weekend and made an impressive $270,877 for a per theater average of $45,146. But as much as people want to talk about the movie that might earn him his first Oscar nomination, the conversation continues to turn to Magic Mike Xxl, the sequel to the break out hit Magic Mike. In the film, Tatum reprises his role as the titular male stripper as he and his boys hit the road toward a stripper convention, or as Tatum has referred to the road tip movie with Time, it's a "stripper odyssey". Channing Tatum: It sucks that we do these Magic Mike movies for such efficient means and time. The first movie took 22 or 23 days, and this movie took 29 days. Those guys are so much fun -- »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.
New on DVD and Blu-ray
"22 Jump Street"
Can Chris Miller and Phil Lord make anything entertaining? When "21 Jump Street" the movie was announced, it seemed utterly ludicrous, if not downright insulting. Yet here we are enjoying the sequel, digging on the continued doofy adventures of Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum). What's next, a dazzling movie about Legos?!
"20,000 Days on Earth"
This documentary about writer and musician Nick Cave is just as weird and wonderful as its subject. It's a must-see for fans of Cave's oeuvre, but even if you don't know a Boy Next Door from a Bad Seed, you'll get a kick out of this strange film. Featuring appearances by Kylie Minogue, Ray Winstone, Warren Ellis, and Blixa Bargeld.

How hilarious would it be to see Steve Carell make a stripper cameo alongside Channing Tatum in Magic Mike Xxl?! At last night's AFI Fest premiere of Carell and Tatum's new film Foxcatcher in Hollywood, we asked the 52-year-old funnyman if he'd ever join Tatum for a sexy appearance in a Magic Mike flick. "Probably never," Carell deadpanned. But why not? "Because I don't have a good body," the Office star added with a smile. Lol! Carell also revealed that his teenage daughter Elisabeth is a big fan of Tatum and was excited her dad got to co-star with him in Foxcatcher. "She hasn't met him yet," Carell told E! News last night, adding, "She's probably picking »
Bennett Miller is a filmmaker who knows a good true story when he sees one. The director, who got his start with the documentary "The Cruise," and then directed the critically adored, Oscar-strewn films "Capote" and "Moneyball," both of which were based on real life accounts of very different events (the making of Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood" and then something involving math and baseball). For his latest film, "Foxcatcher," Miller once again dips into the reservoir of real life tragedy to come up with his dramatic inspiration.
"Foxcatcher" is based on a famous incident in 1996 when John Du Pont (played in the film by Steve Carell), a multimillionaire weirdo, murdered Mark Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo), an Olympic wrestler, on his vast estate (named Foxcatcher). Du Pont fancied himself a wrestling fanatic (and amateur coach) and wanted to will a team to Olympic glory basically through money and weird encouragement. »

Netflix "La Bare" Never forget that Joe Manganiello used his "Magic Mike" cred to make a documentary about male stripping happen. God bless.

When Foxcatcher arrives in theaters this weekend — the dark, true-life drama about the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) — it may leave you with a looming question, “Wait, is that really Channing Tatum?” No, not just because Tatum — like his co-star Steve Carell (who plays eccentric millionaire and Schultz’s murderer, John du Pont) — is virtually unrecognizable due to the film’s stunning physical transformations. It’s because Tatum, as the tortured Olympic wrestler (and Dave’s brother) Mark Schultz, reaches staggering new heights as an actor.
The star of Step Up, White House Down, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike, among others, not only turns out one of this year’s most harrowing performances, but one of the very best. Even Tatum’s biggest naysayers (yes, they exist) will be blown away by the actor’s emotionally and physically daunting work in Foxcatcher. »
Harrowing true-crime biopic Foxcatcher is already generating Oscar buzz, but it was the film's unconventional casting choices that first made headlines. Funnyman Steve Carell, best known as The Office's bone-headed boss Michael Scott, and Magic Mike star Channing Tatum are tackling arguably their darkest roles to date in the film about an Olympic wrestler and his disturbed multi-millionaire sponsor.
Trailer: Carell Transforms Into Crooked Coach Opposite Channing in 'Foxcatcher'
Carell has had successful dramatic roles in films like Little Miss Sunshine and The Way, Way Back, but even he was surprised at finding himself on the short list to play John Eleuthère du Pont, the paranoid-schizophrenic heir to the du Pont fortune.
"I thought well, why me?" Carell told Et. "This doesn't seem to be a list that I would be on, in terms of playing this character. I was surprised when [director Bennett Miller] called me."
The film is the story of "Team Foxcatcher," the wrestling »
Not many men can say they've nearly gone deaf from the sound of 900 women screaming for them. When People's Hottest Bachelor Joe Manganiello and his hunky costars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer shot the first Magic Mike, they drove the 200 shrieking female extras on set wild with their steamy stripteases.But that was nothing compared to shooting the much-awaited sequel, Magic Mike Xxl. "This time, there were 900 during our dance scene, so it was a bigger rush," Manganiello told People Thursday at the launch of the Mb Chronowing smart watch, available exclusively on Gilt.com, at Soho House West Hollywood. »
