As Channing Tatum has navigated Hollywood and impressively built his career along the way (three #1 movies in 2012, just sayin’), he’s also amassed a helluva Rolodex. And it seems he’s called in favors from everyone for “10 Years.” The project, produced by Tatum, comes from “Dear John” and “We Are Marshall” writer Jamie Linden (who is also makes his directorial debut) and stars Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Brian Geraghty, Anthony Mackie, Kate Mara, Rosario Dawson, Justin Long, Scott Porter, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza and Oscar Isaac in a dramedy about a group of friends who, you guessed it, gather for the ten-year reunion. The trailer has arrived and we’ll just let the official synopsis dip into the multiple storylines:
In this ensemble comedy, 10 Years follows a group of friends on the night of their high school reunion who, a decade later, still haven’t quite grown up. Channing Tatum plays Jake, who is deeply in love with his girlfriend (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and ready to propose—until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in ten years. Jake’s friend Cully (played by funnyman Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend (Ari Graynor), 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 still trying to one-up each other to impress the coolest girl in class (Lynn Collins), who now has a secret. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Oscar Isaac) is now well-known musician, but is still too shy to talk to the high school crush (Kate Mara) who inspired his one hit wonder.
We saw “10 Years” when it premiered at TIFF last fall, and while we were critical in our review — we said it “suffers from the curious problem of being both overstuffed and empty. There are a lot of stories and arcs we follow over the course of one evening but for the most part, the film is not as insightful or incisive as it sets out to be” — if you’re a fan of any of the actors in here, you’ll probably find something to enjoy. Also, Oscar Isaac sings in it.
The film will open on September 14th. Watch below.
