    There Were Probably Better Days To Announce This: Alex Pettyfer Will Play Kristen Stewart's Boyfriend In 'Cali'

    This was either the best or worst day to run this news depending on how you look at it, but either way, Kristen Stewart probably wishes it were tomorrow already. With tabloids catching her in the act of canoodling with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, the actress and helmer...

    Magic Mike—movie review

    All the women I know are hot to see this movie. So were the women who packed the screening I attended, and they made their feelings known during the opening strip-club number—just like the adoring women onscreen. Then the story kicked in and everything changed.

    L.A. Film Fest Review: Entertaining Romp 'Magic Mike' Will Put Its Spell On You... And Shake It Like Nobody's Business

    There’s just something about Channing Tatum. Clearly, he’s got that magic touch (why else would Paramount be reshooting “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” to add more Chan?), a certain je ne sais quoi that would inspire veteran auteur Stephen Soderbergh to bring his early life story as a Florida stripper to th...

    Alex Pettyfer Joins Never Ending Ensemble For Lee Daniels' 'The Butler'; Vanessa Redgrave Circling

    Way back in 2010, ShoWest named Alex Pettyfer as one of their Stars Of Tomorrow, a dubious honor also bestowed at the time to Vanessa Hudgens, with the two of them pairing in the soon to be released box office bomb "Beastly." Time marched on. Now in 2012, Hudgens is working with Harmony Ko...

    Butts, Thongs & A Really Big Penis: 2 Red Band TV Spots For 'Magic Mike'

    While the summer season in 2012 features a lot of men dressing up in tights, the dudes in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" flip the script by taking off their clothes instead. But they're not going out to fight crime. Instead, they're melting hearts and making some fast money a...

    Watch: It's Raining Men For Channing Tatum In 'Magic Mike' Clip Plus New Poster For The Film

    Can a movie about male stripping become the sleeper hit of the summer? Warner Bros. is certainly hoping so, and with Channing Tatum already 2/2 with "The Vow" and "21 Jump Street," the odds are looking very good that "Magic Mike" -- which also boasts Matthew McConaughey...

    Jamie Campbell Bower & Ed Speleers Are Lead Contenders For 'The Mortal Instruments'

    Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Goode To Star In Pierre Morel-Produced Action-Thriller 'Overdrive'

    For a brief time after the release of surprise hit, "Taken," it seemed as though the world was Pierre Morel's oyster. The one-time DoP had cult success with "District 13," and his follow-up, the Liam Neeson starrer, was an enormous worldwide hit, landing the French director at the top of action/sci-fi wishlists, and giving him the plum job of replacing Peter Berg on the adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi novel "Dune." But things haven't been so smooth since: "Dune" was canceled by Paramount, he didn't land the job of directing Universal's tentpole "Ouija," and his third directorial effort "From Paris With Love" disappointed commerci...

    Alex Pettyfer To Play A Young Channing Tatum, Opposite Channing Tatum, In Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike'

    Um, wow. The idea that Steven Soderbergh was sneaking one more film in before his long-promised retirement, other than the previously announced "Liberace" and "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," was a surprise. The idea that the bonus picture would be a drama about male strippers, starring part-man, part-tree trunk Channing Tatum, was an even bigger surprise. But further casting's been announced for the film, and it's a real eyebrow-raiser: the director has landed the young star of "I Am Number Four," Alex Pettyfer, to play opposite Tatum. Not only that, but it emerges that Pettyfer will essentially be playing a younger version of the real-life Channin...
