Listen, I know the holiday movie season still lies ahead, but I am confident in saying that no other film will come close to the astounding cinematic spectacle of “Magic Mike,” hands down my favorite movie of the year. And I’m even more sure that no other Blu-ray/DVD will get as many plays either — thanks to the “too hot for theaters” additional dance sequences, my rewind button will be putting in overtime. Loved “Magic Mike” or still dying to see it? Well, surprise, surprise, three lucky readers will win a copy of the “Magic Mike” Blu-Ray/DVD and a Channing Tatum autographed trading card. Hot.

Happy “Magic Mike” Day everyone! Hollywood’s most important movie since “Citizen Kane” is out on DVD and Blu-Ray today, which means thousands of women across the country will be blowing off their previously scheduled plans in order to spend some alone time with the boys at the Xquisite. And to think this movie might not have happened if Channing Tatum, the movie’s star and one of the producers, hadn’t spent his pre-fame days shaking his moneymaker on stage as an exotic dancer. “Magic Mike” was loosely based on Channing’s own experiences as an upstart on the stripping scene, which explains why he was oh so very good in all those sexy dance sequences (the Blu-Ray, BTW, has additional material that was too hot for theaters). Eventually, the ability to bump and grind scored Channing a role in “Step Up” and the rest has been history — but clearly his roots have continued to be an influence. And we’re all the better for it…

After seeing Jay-Z perform with wife Beyonce this weekend, I had two thoughts: 1) They can never break up, and 2) If the music industry has Jay and Beyonce as their modern power couple, who does Young Hollywood have? Who is the 2012 version of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart? I mean, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, not to mention Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, have split — which famous pair is poised to take the super couple reigns and hold on for dear life? The obvious choice would be Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, but I think we can all agree they are swimming in rough waters right now and can’t really be expected to do the job.
With that in mind, I decided to anoint the new guard of up-and-coming Hollywood super couples, celebs who are great alone but even stronger together. Keep reading »
Channing Tatum must be some kind of time traveler, because he seems to put out more hot movies than the rest of Hollywood combined. This year alone he’s already headlined three of Hollywood’s biggest surprise hits, “The Vow,” “21 Jump Street” and “Magic Mike.” So he’s probably ready for a well earned vacation, right?
Nah, of course not. Instead, he’s got a brand new trailer for yet another movie coming out this fall, “10 Years.” Read more…
You know I’ve got it bad for a particular dude celebrity when I come across a bunch of boring paparazzi photos of him and still feel a
moral vaginal obligation to post one. In this case, that celebrity is Channing Tatum and the boring photo is him in a pair of sweat shorts, pointing at something. This does, however, give me the opportunity to tell you that I finally saw “Step Up” this weekend and OH MY GOD IT IS FANTASTIC. Whenever I really like a movie, I find myself spending an hour or two after the film is over researching the subject matter, which means I was up until 2 a.m. “researching” Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s relationship. They met on the set of “Step Up,” fell in love, and got married in 2006. They’re still so in love that they still make out in public, like at the airport. Anyway, my research led me to YouTube where I found this amazing fan made video dedicated to all the romantic things Channing has said about love, Jenna, and their relationship (see it after the jump!). And then I checked my recent OK Cupid messages, drank a bunch of cherry compote cocktails, and cried. [Photo: INFDaily] Keep reading »
