Creed header Oscars

By the end of the weekend at this year’s Oscars, one of eight nominated films will be added to an eternal list of Academy Award-winning Best Pictures. This year’s nominees run the gamut of genres. There are two films detailing modern scandals (Spotlight, The Big Short), two “based on true story” historical set pieces (Bridge of Spies, The Revenant), one little international indie film (Brooklyn), a deep emotionally wrenching drama (Room), a film about someone lost in space… again (The Martian), and a kick ass action thrill ride (Mad Max: Fury Road). Are these the actual best films of 2015? Well, that depends on personal preference and opinion. Based on box office, this year’s nominees weren’t close to being the most popular films. Only one — The Martian — finished in the top 10 grossing films of the year, and only three total were in the top 21.

So if the eight nominees aren’t your cup of tea, here are the Top 10 films of 2015 NOT nominated for Best Picture

Honest Trailer Magic Mike

With the sequel opening yesterday, Screen Junkies made an obvious choice this week with an Honest Trailer of the Magic Mike, directed by Oscar winner, Steven “Soda Burger.” It was inevitable that women would want to see Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and other model-esque actors strut their stuff on the “dance floor.” What’s interesting is that it’s actually a really good movie with plenty of eye candy for all, an interesting story loosely based on Tatum’s pre-acting career. Narrator Jon Bailey spends much of the trailer discussing the uneasiness men (including himself) have watching this film for a variety of complicated reasons.

Watch the Honest Trailer below.

Magic Mike XXL Movie Review

Magic Mike XXL
Director: Gregory Jacobs
Screenwriter: Reid Carolin, Channing Tatum
Cinematographer: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias, Jada Pinkett-Smith
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: July 1, 2015

“Are you ready to be worshipped?”

Magic Mike XXL is something of a cinematic anomaly. What makes Gregory Jacobs‘ film so unique is that it works as bro-centric male fantasy and erotic female wish fulfillment. It’s the movie both Entourage and Fifty Shades of Grey aspire to, but are woefully unequipped to be.

Written by Reid Carolin and Channing Tatum, Magic Mike XXL picks up three years after the end of Magic Mike. After leaving the stripper spotlight to start his own business, “Magic” Mike Lane (Tatum) has traded one grind for another. The custom furniture business isn’t exactly booming, and the girl he thought was the one wasn’t.

Meanwhile, the remaining Kings of Tampa are planning one last blow-out performance, but they need the legendary Magic Mike as their headliner. Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, and Kevin Nash, along with their emcee (Gabriel Iglesias), recruit Mike for one last ride: a road trip to a Myrtle Beach stripper convention where they’ll drown in a tsunami of dollars.

Magic Mike Header

Just weeks after his 2012 film Magic Mike hit theaters, Channing Tatum confirmed that a sequel was in the works, with plans to make the follow-up bigger.

With a Magic Mike XXL trailer expected later today, the hunky G.I. JOE actor posted an image of the film’s first poster to this Twitter account yesterday. The poster shows off a shirtless Tatum and his six-pack ads, but centers on his crotch area, where he points to the words “COMING” – coming to theaters, that is.

Along with Tatum returning as the titular stripper, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, and Gabriel Iglesias will all be reprising their roles, with franchise newcomers Jada Pinkett Smith, Andie MacDowell, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, and Amber Heard signing on for the ride this time around. Matthew McConaughey, who, in the first film, played a former stripper who owned the Florida club where Mike works, will sit out this dance.

Film Quotes of 2012

2012 was a fantastic year for movies. Films like The Dark Knight Rises and Marvel’s The Avengers entertained audiences with blockbuster action sequences and the ultimate in childhood wish fulfillment, while movies such as Drew Goddard‘s Cabin in the Woods and Gareth Edward‘s The Raid: Redemption will long be remembered as putting the nail in the coffin of their respective genres.

We saw new films from acclaimed directors like Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Ang Lee, David O. Russell, Paul Thomas Anderson, William Friedkin, Steven Soderbergh, Ben Affleck, Sam Mendes, and Kathryn Bigelow. Not to mention the latest offerings from Rian Johnson, Joss Whedon, Richard Linklater, and newcomers Colin Trevorrow, Benh Zeitlin, and Stephen Chbosky.

So many memorable characters – so many great lines delivered by talented actors inhabiting their roles. Here are some of the best (and a few of the worst) film quotes from 2012. Feel free to include your own in the comments! You can also check out my Top 25 Films of 2012 here!

Magic Mike Header

Magic Mike was able to draw in huge numbers this past summer thanks in part to the appeal of hot sexy male dancers taking the stage and stripping off their clothes. But Steven Soderbergh made a deeper film that showed that some male strippers have dreams off the dance floor. So while the film looks like it may stop at one, Channing Tatum thinks that there are more stories to tell, and wants to direct a sequel.

In an interview with German film site Filmstarts, writer Reid Carolin and Tatum spoke about the ideas they have for Magic Mike 2 and who could be filling the director’s chair now Soderbergh, is retiring.

Channing Tatum has been a very busy man this year. He’s been pushing films for The Vow and 21 Jump Street, and would have been doing so for G.I. Joe: Redemption had it not been for Paramount’s rescheduling. Now with Magic Mike out of the way, Tatum is talking about a sequel.

In an interview with Glamour UK, Tatum responded to the question about the possibility of a Magic Mike 2 with a resounding, “Yes, yes, and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.”

Magic Mike PosterMagic Mike
Directed by Steven Soderbergh
Written by Reid Carolin
Starring Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Cody Horn, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn
Warner Bros.
Rated R | 110 Minutes
Release Date: June 29, 2012

“Alright, Alright, Alright!”

Magic Mike is directed by Steven Soderbergh (Haywire, The Girlfriend Experience), based on a screenplay by Reid Carolin. The film stars Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) as Michael “Magic Mike” Lane, an entrepreneur-slash-stripper in Tampa, Florida.

Adam (Alex Pettyfer) is a down-and-out slacker who, after losing his football scholarship, moves in with his sister, Brooke (Cody Horn). To make ends meet, Adam answers a CraigsList ad and gets a job at a local construction company where he meets Mike. Mike’s a busy guy – he’s got his own automotive detailing service, he makes custom-made furniture, and still finds time to do ultra-manly construction work when he isn’t stripping.

Because he’s a slacker, Adam quits on his first day and catches a ride home with Mike, who introduces him to the world of exotic dancing. Co-starring in Soderbergh and Carolin’s stripped-down story are Matt Bomer (In Time) and Joe Manganiello (True Blood) as male dancers working under Dallas (Matthew McConaughey), owner of Tampa’s Xquisite Male Dance Revue.

Who better to do a film about male strippers than Stephen Soderbergh, right?

That’s exactly what the director plans on working on in the coming future, and with the cast growing at an ever speedy rate, the Soderbergh’s low budget Magic Mike appears to be one of the hotter projects going around Hollywood.

The Playlist has revealed that actress Cody Horn has been tapped for the film’s female lead, and will play opposite the likes of Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Riley Keough.
