It's official! Channing Tatum is Gambit! Despite reports that the actor was wanting to back out of the project, THR confirms that Channing Tatum has officially closed his deal, making him part of 20th Century Fox's Marvel family. The film will open in theaters October 2016.
Most expected that the actor would eventually sign his deal. And fans were shocked to hear that he wanted out. The project seemed to be falling apart as sources close to the production suggested that Fox and Channing Tatum couldn't come to terms on the contract. While that is now proven untrue, it is said that the studio and the actor did hit a sensitive spot in negotiations. That sensitive spot was not disclosed to the public.
Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled the first photo of Robert Redford as Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes in the upcoming "Truth" film. Check it out below. Plot: A behind-the-scenes look at news anchor Dan Rather during his final days at C.B.S. News when he broadcast a damaging report about how President Bush relied on privilege and family connections to avoid fighting in the Viet Nam War. The new movie is the directorial debut of writer James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man, White House Down) and is set to hit theaters on October 16th. Photo: (click to enlarge) »
Is Cate Blanchett going for the triple crown this year? The two-time Academy Award winner already delighted audiences as the wicked, but semi-sympathetic step mother in Kenneth Branaugh’s live action “Cinderella” in March. In May she earned critical acclaim for her work as the title character in Todd Haynes’ “Carol.” The Weinstein Company is going to release that highly anticipated awards player in November. But, Blanchett fans can rejoice because they’ll have one more shot to enjoy the incredible Aussie’s talents before the end of 2015 and it promises to tell the “Truth.” Sony Pictures Classics announced today that "Truth," James Vanderbilt’s directorial debut, will open in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 16. Based on a true story, the new drama chronicles the final days of legendary CBS News anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford) as both he and the network deal with the ramifications of a »

Get your first look right here! Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a photo from the upcoming film Truth, which is the directorial debut of screenwriter James Vanderbilt (of The Rundown, Zodiac, The Losers, The Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2, White House Down). The film stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather, and Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes, and presents a behind-the-scenes look inside CBS News during Rather's final days there. This photo only shows Blanchett in the make-up room with Redford as Rather, though you can barely see him only through a mirror. At least it's something, and puts this on the map for the awards season as we end the summer and head deeper into the fall. Blanchett is always one to watch. See below.

The film is based on the Mary Mapes book “Truth and Duty,” and Blanchett plays Mapes, a CBS News journalist and Rather’s producer.
“Truth” follows Mapes and Rather as they uncover allegations that George W. Bush may have been Awol from the U.S. National Guard for over a year during the Vietnam War. Four documents were presented as authentic in a “60 Minutes” broadcast aired by CBS on Sept. 8, 2004, less than two months before the 2004 election, but it was later determined that CBS had failed to authenticate the documents.
The ensuing scandal ruined Rather’s career »

As the action-movie auteur behind films like Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, and White House Down, Roland Emmerich tends to spend his days on set managing explosions and working with tricky special effects. But when Emmerich recently changed gears to make the intimate, low-budget gay-rights drama Stonewall, he found himself faced with a whole new set of problems. "It was a huge challenge to make this movie, and if I had not absolutely wanted it, it would not have happened," he told Vulture this week.Emmerich's new film tells the story of the 1969 Stonewall riots — where a long-oppressed queer community finally fought back against a police raid at New York's Stonewall Inn — and when it comes out in theaters on September 25 (you can check out the exclusive poster teasing that release date below), it will do so at a pivotal point for gay rights and visibility. »

With the UK getting its first glimpse of the Asylum's latest disaster-piece tonight (July 23), we bring you the 8 best and very worst moments from Sharknado 3 below:
There's a certain art to a Sharknado opening scene. Viewers want their man-eating sharks and lots of blood from the get-go, and each new movie has to find a new way to satisfy them.
This time around, a hokey presidential ceremony - complete with a genuinely depressing cameo from all-time great comedian Robert Klein for the second year running - for the one-man army known as Fin Shepard (Ian Ziering) was quickly dispatched so the sharks could starting destroying the Us capital.

Emmerich, who also produced the film, says, “I was always interested and passionate about telling this important story, but I feel it has never been more timely than right now.” Less than 50 years ago, in 1969, being gay was considered a mental illness; gay people could not be employed by the government; it was illegal for gay people to congregate, and police brutality against gays went unchecked. Today, thanks to the events set in motion by the Stonewall riots, the gay rights movement continues to make incredible strides towards equality. In the past several weeks alone, the »

An update on all things Westworld - there's been some casting swaps, and a load of new pictures from the upcoming TV show...
Over the last few days there have been a couple of news stories surrounding the Westworld TV show, we've combined them here to save you all that clicking.
Firstly, there've been some casting changes, as Entertainment Weekly reported yesterday.
The Lord Of The Rings alum Miranda Otto has departed the project, for starters. Despite appearing in the pilot, Otto and the producers saw things differently after the role was re-conceived post-pilot. Instead, she's landed a role in the fifth season of Homeland.
Westworld's cast has been rounded out with some new names, too.
Eion Bailey of Once Upon A Time will play Logan, described as a “louche bachelor and veteran Westworld guest. His hedonistic romp through Westworld is equally motivated by self-indulgence and a desire to help his friend, »
So they made a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, you know, the 2013 White House Gerard Butler flick, the worse one of the two (not that White House Down was a masterpiece). This is the teaser trailer for London Has Fallen. Why? No, really, why make a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen? The money? $161 […]
In 2013, Antoine Fuqua's President-in-peril actioner Olympus Has Fallen introduced Gerard Butler as disgraced Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, who was tasked with saving Commander-in-Chief Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) when terrorists shut the White House down. In their second adventure together, London Has Fallen, Banning and Asher attend the funeral of the British Prime Minister, who died under mysterious circumstances. With world leaders in attendance to pay their respects, another terrorist organization seizes on this perfect opportunity to take them all out. And yet none of this is revealed in the first look at director Babak Najafi's sequel. That's fine. This is a teaser trailer. All we really need to see is Butler and Eckhart running around amidst explosions while the historic monuments of London crumble down around them to the eerie, minor-keyed tune of "London Bridge Is Falling Down". Subtlety is not what these films aim for, and I respect that. »

Depending on where your politics lay, "London Has Fallen" may also be an all too accurate description of the recent election results in the United Kingdom. But it's also the title of the unlikely sequel of the unlikely hit "Olympus Has Fallen," the first of the dueling 2013 blockbusters about the White House coming under siege (the other was "White House Down," which earned more at the box office, but also had double the budget). And the first trailer has arrived for another tale of bad guys, honorable presidents and the people who work for them. Read More: Review: 'White House Down' Starring Channing Tatum & Jamie Foxx Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, and Charlotte Riley are among the ensemble for this one which takes the story across the pond.

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 »

When we last saw him in Olympus Has Fallen, Gerard Butler’s peppery secret service agent Mike Banning had seen off most of North Korea’s special forces in a flurry of punching, gunplay and salty quips. At the time he may have seen an unlikely candidate to John McClane his way to a sequel, especially up against the more generously-budgeted White House Down, but audiences liked the cut of his jibes and back he is. This time it’s the Old Smoke that’s falling. Empire’s new issue features a first look at Banning in action in London Has Fallen. Click below for a closer look. This sequence, shot in the same Charing Cross location used in Skyfall, sees Butler’s agent dispensing justice to a terrorist in a rubble-strewn Underground station. Well, hopefully it's a terrorist. It could just be a commuter who's picked the wrong man to ask directions from. »

Channing Tatum just seems like an awesome dude. I’ve interviewed him a few times, on the sets of 22 Jump Street and White House Down, and he genuinely is the person you’d expect him to be. Funny, kind, passionate, and totally humble about just how famous he’s become. A great example of this is a […]

Channing Tatum has set up the tear-jerker memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy” at Sony’s TriStar label to produce and possibly star through his Free Association production company and Temple Hill Entertainment.
The father-daughter drama is based on Matthew Logelin’s memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love,” which centers on his marriage, the death of his wife 27 hours after she gave birth to their daughter and his experiences of raising his daughter as a single parent.
“Two Kisses,” which took its title from the kisses Logelin gave his daughter each night, landed on the New York Times bestseller list when it was published in 2011.
The project was set up in 2012 as a Lifetime movie with Marta Kaufman and Denise Dinovi as exec producers but did not go forward.

I’ve got to admit that I was one of the few to favour the Channing Tatum/ Jamie Foxx Die-Hard-In-The-White-House movie White House Down over Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen, but the latter was the clear winner and the biggest hits with fans upon its release. So much so that a sequel to the film is set to arrive in cinemas this October. Gerard Butler returns in the lead role, alongside a strong supporting cast in Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Charlotte Riley and Angela Bassett.
We’ve just received two new posters for the England-set action-epic, titled London Has Fallen, which you can see below. First up, the synopsis.
The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. But what starts out »

The 2013 showdown between movies about a former soldier saving the President from terrorists in the White House was an unexpected, oddly hard fought one. Although the victor in terms of box office gross was Roland Emmerich’s White House Down with $205.4 million, it did so on a $150 million budget, making Olympus Has Fallen’s $161 million on half the upfront cost the real success.
And so it is that London Has Fallen will arrive in October 2015, with Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman all returning for some more explosive action under the eye of Swedish director Babak Najafi. The film sees President Asher and Mike Banning in London for the funeral of the Prime Minister, who died under mysterious circumstances that no doubt tie into the inevitable destruction.
Two new posters for the film, giving a tease of the level of destruction that’ll be levelled on the British capital, »

THR reports that Sony Pictures Classics has snagged North American rights to "Truth," starring Robert Redford as Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as his producer, Mary Mapes, whose 2005 memoir "Truth and Duty" serves as the basis for this film. "Truth" centers on the firestorm that broke out in September 2004 when the former CBS Evening News anchor made libelous claims that President Bush received special treatment during his Air National Guard tenure in Vietnam. The authenticity of Rather's sources was called into question, Mapes was swiftly fired and Rather resigned in 2005. Elisabeth Moss, Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid also appear in "Truth," the directorial debut of "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "White House Down" screenwriter James Vanderbilt. Brad Fischer, William Sherak, Vanderbilt and Mikkel Bondesen produce with Brett Ratner, Doug Mankoff and Andy Spaulding, and Mythology Entertainment. Sony Pictures Classics has »
