There are many reasons you might want to check out the new fitness book by Joe Manganiello, Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted. For starters, the blurb his Magic Mike co-star Channing Tatum penned for it claims each purchase comes with a lap dance. “That’s Channing getting me in a lot of trouble, because hopefully I’ll sell a lot of books and that would be a lot of lap dances,” Manganiello tells EW, laughing. “I guess we’ll see how it does.” There’s also a »

Today’s New York Film Critics Circle prizes are a big boost to Fox Searchlight’s “12 Years a Slave” and Warner Bros.’ “Gravity.” Not because they won big — “12 Years” won director for Steve McQueen, while there were none for “Gravity” — but because the critics prizes take the pressure off each of the films as the One To Beat.
The studios have done a great job of keeping heat on those films since early September, which is not an easy thing to do; so with another three months to go, it’s an advantage to be just one of many frontrunners.
Critics awards are notoriously unreliable as Oscar bellwethers. But by voting both screenplay and best film awards for Sony’s “American Hustle,” the N.Y. group brought David O. Russell’s pic to the front of the conversation.

Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto: New York Film Critics go for movie stars in each acting category (photo: Cate Blanchett in ‘Blue Jasmine’) (See previous post: "Hot Jennifer Lawrence, Wet Robert Redford: New York Film Critics Winners.") Cate Blanchett was chosen as the New York Film Critics Circle’s Best Actress for Woody Allen’s comedy-drama Blue Jasmine. Blanchett, already touted as an Oscar 2014 favorite, plays a role with elements in common with Vivien Leigh’s Blanche DuBois in Elia Kazan’s A Streetcar Named Desire. Leigh was both the New York Film Critics’ and the Academy Awards’ Best Actress of 1951. (Full list of Nyfcc 2013 award winners.) Cate Blanchett has already won an Oscar — Best Supporting Actress for Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, in which she plays Katharine Hepburn — but this is her first Nyfcc win. Back in 2007, Blanchett, as one of several Bob Dylan characters in Todd Haynes’ I’m Not There, »

The thing to remember about critics groups handing out movie awards this time of year is it’s all about advocacy.
The beneficiary today: American Hustle.
The grifter dramedy collected Best Picture from the New York Film Critics Circle today, and most people will be looking at the prizes as a gauge of what’s likely to end up in the Oscar race this year. Intended or not, that’s what the annual onslaught of awards have evolved into: Academy Award straw polls.
Every major city has a collection of critics who get together and weigh in on their favorite works of the year. »

It was a mix of oft rewarded icons (The Coens) and breakthrough leading movie roles from former awesome TV ensemble players (Jordan & Larson) for the Gotham Awards last night in NYC. 12 Years a Slave, which led nominations (not that that means much at the Gothams with so few categories), went home emptyhanded. No, not even for Lupita Nyong'o in Breakthrough! Bad luck or a sign that people respect but don't love the slavery drama? I don't personally understand this since it's a great film and great films are easy to love but though I'm a Gothamite, I'm not a Gotham voter. And full disclosure: I'm also cool on the Coen's chilly musical, apart from the music and the cat both of which are prize-worthy.

Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »
This is a new photo that has surfaced from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road featuring Tom Hardy in the title role. This is only the second image we've seen of Hardy in the role, the first can be found here. The movie has completed shooting and is now in the post-production phase. So this photo was probably taken awhile ago. Hardy does look pretty badass in the role, but let's be honest... it's going to be hard to fill the shoes of Mel Gibson. Gibson was so awesome in those original films.
The long awaited Mad Max sequel is set to be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015
"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on »

Black Friday earned its name for a reason. It is a dark time when shoppers go into beast mode and forget the warm feelings of family, friendship and gravy they experienced the day before. There's grabbing, snarling, waiting, pushing. None of that sounds fun to us - even if it's for an affordable flat-screen. To help you win the holidays this year and avoid getting into fisticuffs with local shoppers, we created a gift guide overflowing with unique, celebrity-inspired items you won't likely find at 4 a.m. at your town shopping center.

If you had told me, back in the days of Failure To Launch and Sahara, that Matthew McConaughey would become one of the most revered and celebrated actors of the 2010s, I would never have believed it. However, that’s exactly how things turned out with phenomenal turns in Bernie, Magic Mike, Mud, and Killer Joe. He’s continuing on that winning streak thanks to upcoming roles in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar as well as his latest bid for Oscar glory in Dallas Buyer’S Club, where he plays a homophobe who discovers he has contracted AIDS and begins to smuggle the latest untested drugs to other AIDS sufferers. Word from the Us has been incredibly strong, with both McConaughey and Jared Leto being tipped for awards season.

The great thing about butts is that everyone has one. Women have butts and men have butts, and even though the female derriere gets more attention in music and on movie posters, there have been many great moments in male butt history-and we’re not just talking about the movie Magic Mike.
Many of the most amazing moments in male butt history have happened on the big screen. Superhero movies give fans the chance not just to see their favorite comic book heroes on the big screen, but to also see their favorite actors in spandex. Consider how we see Captain America’s butt before we see his face in Avengers or how all of Batman & Robin can be reduced to the close-up of George Clooney‘s Bat-butt.
It’s not just superheroes who have all the fun, though. Jeremy Renner stole Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol just »

Channing Tatum has had one of the more fascinating career transformations in recent memory. While he initially rose to prominence as a male model and the eye candy star of Step Up, the actor has recently shined in a variety of impressive projects like Side Effects, 21 Jump Street, and Magic Mike. His producing career has taken off as well, and one of the projects on the horizon is a biopic of stunt performer Evel Knievel. Tatum is onboard to produce and star as Knievel, and his producing partner Reid Carolin is currently penning the script for the film. Steve recently got the chance to sit down with producer Dana Brunetti for an extended interview, and during the course of their conversation Brunetti discussed the status of the Evel Knievel project. He revealed the likely timeline of the film and the tone, which he describes as “a serious movie but a fun movie. »

Warner Bros. has announced that George Miller's long-awaited sequel Mad Max: Fury Road will be released in 3D on May 15th, 2015. It's pretty incredible to see all of the films being released in 2015. It might just be the best year of movies ever.

"Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

Channing Tatum may be ripped ... but he's not very limber! In a hilarious video parodying Jean-Claude Van Damme's famous Volvo truck split (which made rounds on the internet earlier this month), the actor tries his best to re-create the dangerous stunt ... on two craft service carts from the set of the upcoming flick "22 Jump Street." Check out the hilarious (yet, slightly painful to watch) video above!Props to the "Magic Mike" star for giving the crazy trick a try. Now, check out Jcvd's video below to see how it's really done. In Channing's defense, there aren't too many men out there who could pull off the splits like Jean. Tatum does however hold the title for 2012's Sexiest Man Alive -- that has to mean something right?What do you think of Tatum's parody? Tell toofab in the comment section below, and check out some of our picks »
