Channing Tatum Would Like To Play Gambit

Gambit. The one X-Men spinoff that seems to be having trouble finding a director. After losing two of its directors in the past two years, it looked like Gore Verbinski (A Cure For Wellness) may have been the director to finally make the Ragin’ Cajun film happen.

However, you can now add him to the growing list of directors who could not commit to the project, as Verbinski has departed the project. Find out what made the split happen in the full story below.

Lizzy Caplan in talks for Gambit

Remember how Gambit was one of the X-Men spinoffs FOX would be working on? The film would follow the critical and commercial success of Deadpool and Wolverine. Even Channing Tatum, who would star as the title character, appeared at SDCC to announce that the project was in development. But the film hit multiple production stalls and was even forced to be put on the shelf because they were unable to find a director. Both Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman walked away from the project due to creative differences. However, it seems like the studio was able to settle on Gore Verbinski to direct.

With a director locked down, the film can finally start taking the necessary steps towards production. But before they can do that, they have to assemble a cast. Reports say that Lizzy Caplan is in talks to be the first to join Tatum. More on the story below.

Gore Verbinski Could Direct Gambit

Gambit is just one of those X-Men spinoffs that has yet to enter production. The film has been in the development stage ever since they found Channing Tatum to play the title role. But one of the major problems is that the project has been unable to lock a director down.

Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman were both tapped to helm during separate occasions, but both left for their own reasons. However, it’s beginning to look like Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski might be the one to steer the ship. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Screenwriter: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated R | 141 Minutes
Release Date: September 22, 2017

When getting a sequel, you’d expect something on a larger scale, something more epic than its predecessor. And a lot of times, a sequel can deliver on just that. But then there are those times where it just falls short or just stays the course. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is pretty much the latter. The film, which prides itself in dressing in sharply tailored suits, adds nothing new to the franchise. It’s same shop, same tailor, same pocket square, same tie, just a different knot. But it tries to add new elements by introducing the Statesman – the American version of the Kingsman but with more Stars and Stripes aesthetics.

But with barely any stakes and an eccentric villain with a lack of originality, Kingsman: The Golden Circle doesn’t do much of anything but put on the same exact suit, but with a different color and a different tie knot. My full review below.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

The new trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle dropped earlier today, which was just in time for their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The cast includes Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Sophie Cookson, all of whom are returning to reprise their roles of the agents of a super secret British spy organization. They will be joined by Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, and Pedro Pascal, who serve as agents of the Statesman, the American version of the Kingsman. Julianne Moore is Poppy, the film’s villain. Matthew Vaughn also returns to direct the sequel.

When it comes to Hall H, you can almost always expect some new footage from the film, and the cast to give it some extra hype. There was also a video that saw this world crossing over with the animated comedy Archer. Check it out below.

‘Logan Lucky’ Trailer: Steven Soderbergh Brings Back The Scrappy Heist

Logan Lucky trailer header

It’s a little bit of a meta opening, but when a trailer introduces itself by saying “from the director of Ocean’s 11, Ocean’s 12, and Ocean’s 13,” you know you’re pretty much in for a Steven Soderbergh-esque caper. Logan Lucky is Soderbergh’s latest directorial effort that drew him out of retirement.

In the film, two misfit brothers (Channing Tatum and Adam Driver) and incarcerated explosives expert (Daniel Craig) plot the ultimate scheme to rob Charlotte Motor Speedway. Only thing is, the group may not be capable of pulling off this heist. Unless they have a little luck on their side. Check out the trailer for Logan Lucky below.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

Last week we saw a high-speed first look tease for the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Though no information was given on when we might see a real trailer, it was assumed that one was coming soon.

These assumptions were correct, as 20th Century Fox has released the first official trailer for the movie. This time around, the Kingsman group finds themselves joining forces with an ally spy organization in America called Statesman.

Continue below for more information on The Golden Circle and to check out the trailer.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

20th Century Fox has released a high-speed first look teaser for Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to the surprise 2014 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Like any trailer teaser the video is very short, running only 15 seconds long. Unlike most trailer teasers, however, this one presents the footage in rapid-fire, subliminal message-like flashes. There’s also no mention of when we’ll see an actual trailer, interestingly enough, which is usually the whole point of a trailer tease. Though to be fair, the video is dubbed “The Ultimate Breakdown,” and makes no promises of a trailer. Still, it’s safe to assume one is coming soon.

You can find the first Kingsman: The Golden Circle teaser below.

Book of Life Channing Tatum SDCC 2014 - cast in Splash

Channing Tatum will star in Disney’s planned remake of Splash, the 1984 comedy starring Tom Hanks as a man who falls in love with a mermaid (Daryl Hannah).

But Tatum will not be playing the Tom Hanks role in this new version, according to THR, which reports that that will go to Jillian Bell, his co-star in 22 Jump Street. No, the buff Magic Mike will be the Mermaid this time!
