"How do you call in an airstrike?"
After a nine month delay that moved it from its prime June 2012 release date, fans will finally be able to see G.I. Joe: Retaliation this weekend and find out if it improved on 2009's disappointing G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Initial trailers for the movie capitalized on the inclusion of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis as Roadblock and General Joe Colton, respectively, but as opening day has drawn near, the promotional focus has turned to Johnson and rising star Channing Tatum, who played Duke in Rise of Cobra but whose role seemed clearly diminished in the sequel's trailers.
Whether more Tatum has been added to the movie is unknown, though the final trailer focuses almost solely on the friendship of Duke and Roadblock, starting with Johnson schooling Tatum on how to play a game on the XBOX.

Now that the action movie Olympus Has Fallen, has opened (in second place, we'll note), promotion has begun on the next "Die Hard in the White House" movie, namely Columbia's White House Down. This time, the actor playing the secret service agent who must protect the President from a terrorist or paramilitary group won't be Gerard Butler but Channing Tatum, who is on a roll after having three hits last year: The Vow, 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike.
In fact, the marketing for White House Down heavily features Tatum, who is the lone actor on the movie's poster, however, the movie's first trailer also features Jamie Foxx, who plays the President. Starting with a quote from President Abraham Lincoln, the trailer reveals that the "common man put into an impossible situation" scenario that begged the "Die Hard in the White House" synopsis is even more at work here than Olympus Has Fallen. In fact, Tatum is not even a secret service agent, but a man who doesn't get the secret service job and is caught in a tour of the building with his daughter when the takeover happens. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.27.13 by Ryan
"The Cobra revolution has begun."
Of all the trailers, clips and other promotional materials for the upcoming sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the focus is usually on cast members Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum or Bruce Willis and not on the antagonist of Cobra. That all changes in the sequel's latest TV spot, in which the voice of Cobra Commander issues a warning to the world. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.19.13 by Ryan
Go Joe!There's a new clip from G.I. Joe: Retaliation and, unsurprisingly, it features cast members Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum. Far more surprisingly, the new clip also features the words and wisdom of the incomparable Jay-Z, and it's clear that Tatum's Duke finds the words both moving and inspiring. There's no doubt that Shawn Carter has plenty of knowledge to share, and as the ('80's cartoon version of the) Joes will tell you: knowing is half the battle. Posted 03.14.13 by reelz
"I thought sick people sometimes make things up."
The clock is ticking on Traffic and Erin Brockovich director Steven Soderbergh's career, with only two more movies to go before he goes into a voluntary retirement. After exploring the world of male exotic dancing in last year's Magic Mike and the global response to a pandemic in 2011's Contagion, Soderbergh's latest, Side Effects (formerly The Bitter Pill), targets the world of prescription drugs as it follows Emily Hawkins (Rooney Mara), an unsettled young woman who turns to prescription drugs to deal with the depression she suffers after her husband (Channing Tatum) is sent to prison. But after her husband is released, the drug prescribed to her by her psychiatrist (Jude Law) seems to be having curious, and potentially dangerous, effect.
Side Effects is clearly a thriller, though who exactly is in danger and who is to blame seems to be up in the air in this latest, international thriller.more mysterious trailers

The sequel to 2009's G.I.

It starts with the conflict between Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-Hun) that includes a mountainside escape from a pack of ninjas and ends with Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson) and General Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) avoid explosions and drive tanks. the most explosive trailers

More Tatum, more Willis, more Johnson — no problems?
After suffering a nine month delay back in May, it looks like the promotional campaign for G.I. Joe: Retaliation is in full swing again. The first new footage for the sequel arrived last month in a trailer that showed what terrorist organization Cobra is planning to do next after trying to destroy Europe with nanotechnology in 2009's live-action adaptation G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. So what's next? According to the latest trailer, destroying Europe with a satellite instead!the latest in trailers

Who Should Wear the Cape & Cowl?
It's still unclear how Warner Bros. (WB) plans to proceed with the Batman franchise now that director Christopher Nolan has wrapped up his trilogy. If you've seen The Dark Knight Rises, than you know that Nolan handed the keys to the bat cave to someone from within the universe he created just in case WB wanted to continue the story. However, since the studio announced in June that Gangster Squad scribe Will Beall had been hired to pen a movie based on DC Comics' preeminent super-team, the Justice League — the team's current roster includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Cyborg — it seems far more likely that a new Bruce Wayne/Batman will be chosen, one that has nothing to do with Nolan's universe.
It will be tough to fill Christian Bale's Academy Award-winning shoes, but there must be someone out there with the physicality to play a superhero and the acting chops to portray a man driven to prevent the kind of senseless violence that took his parents away from him. Help us choose the new Dark Knight.

Everybody has their favorite actor, the one they will go see in any movie, no matter what. Movie studios also have their favorite actors, particularly the ones that can sell a movie to a viewing public. When an actor moves from supporting roles to carrying a movie, studios put those actors on the proverbial "A-List." The actors on that list fluctuate with the times, but the reasons behind whether an actor can be on the A-list or not remains the same.
Stephen Galloway, executive editor of The Hollywood Reporter explained to The Hollywood Dailies the three criteria that put an actor on "the A-list," while discussing whether several actors — Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Ryan Gosling (Drive), Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Jessica Chastain (The Help), among others — belonged on that list. Who makes it and who doesn't may surprise you. Posted 08.22.12 by Ryan
The Jamie Linden-scripted romantic drama Dear John was a big hit for Channing Tatum when it debuted in 2010, actually knocking Avatar off of the #1 spot at the box office after seven weeks of dominance. It's no wonder then that Tatum jumped at the chance to re-team with Linden when the screenwriter decided to direct his next screenplay himself. The result is the romantic drama 10 Years (formerly Ten Year), which is about a group of friends who reunite at their ten-year class reunion and realize that they still haven't quite grown up. Here's the synopsis:

Jake (Tatum) is deeply in love with his girlfriend and ready to propose — until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in years. Jake's friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend, and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty (Justin Long) and A.J (Max Minghella) spend the night picking up right where they left off, vying to impress the hottest girl in class. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Oscar Isaac) is now a rock star, but is still too shy to talk to his high school crush.
