    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...

    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...

    Matthew McConaughey Drops Out Of 'The Butler,' Gears Up For 'Dallas Buyers Club'

    A couple of weeks ago, the newly creatively revitalized Matthew McConaughey hit the Cannes Film Festival with two movies to promote -- Jeff Nichols' "Mud" and Lee Daniels' "The Paperboy." While reviews on the former generally leaned toward the positive, the latter was som...

    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...

    CANNES 2012: Jeff Nichols' MUD

    Some film critics have described Jeff Nichols’s "Mud" as the perfect way to end Cannes 2012, a fun and accessible slice of cinematic Americana. But considering the film’s hammy sentimentality and bogus emotional connections, I can’t think of a more disappointing send off.

    Cannes Review: 'Mud' Starring Matthew McConaughey Is An Underwhelming Anti-Fairy Tale

    "Mud," American writer/director Jeff Nichols' underwhelming follow-up to the masterfully visceral "Take Shelter," is a shallow and contrived coming of age story. While both 'Shelter' and "Shotgun Stories," Nichols' promising debut feature, explore their respective characters' motives and emotions, "...

    CANNES 2012: Lee Daniels' THE PAPERBOY

    Cannes Review: Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy' With Matthew McConaughey & Nicole Kidman Is A Disastrous Flop

    Many people will tell you that "The Paperboy" -- based on Pete Dexter's novel, brought to the screen by "Precious" director Lee Daniels -- is a trash masterpiece, an instant camp classic, so bad it's good. These people, these critics, are simply not to be trusted about any question of judgment for a...

    Minka Kelly To Play Jackie Kennedy Opposite Matthew McConaughey's JFK In Lee Daniels' 'The Butler,' Lenny Kravitz Also Joins

    While "Precious" helmer Lee Daniels is nominally in Cannes at the moment to promote the debut of the follow up to his Oscar-nominee, "The Paperboy," which screens tomorrow morning (keep your eyes peeled for our review), it seems the director also intends to leak out casting news for his upcoming pro...

    'Magic Mike' Cast Heats Up Entertainment Weekly Cover, Plus Behind The Scenes Footage & New U.K. Trailer

    After a divisive trailer that either tried covering the film’s mediocrity with a Rihanna soundtrack or illustrated a misguided attempt to package something more unconventional, Stephen Soderbergh’s film “Magic Mike” at least knows its main selling points well, namely its unbelievably fit leads Chann...
