After being pulled from releasing last year, Bennett Miller’s highly anticipated “Moneyball” follow-up “Foxcatcher” will finally find its way to theaters this year, with a stopover for a world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month. On the heels of that announcement, today a new trailer for the true-life thriller has dropped, and wows us once again with how much the entire cast – Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo – have transformed themselves to play these characters. Carell, of course, is the most unrecognizable, playing an eccentricRead More
Rumors have abounded for months, and we even picked our Top 10 wishlist, but today, the 67th Cannes Film Festival has announced its 2014 lineup – and although it’s high on European fare, there are still to come great inclusions for Hollywood’s rising stars.

Channing Tatum Caught in a “Bad Romance”

Excuse the Lady Gaga pun, some things you just can’t pass up. Similarly, Channing Tatum didn’t want to pass up the chance to star and produce in the MGM film entitled “Bad Romance.”  THR reports that the film will be written and directed by Jonathan Levine, so although there aren’t any details about the plot just yet, Levine has showcased his very distinct voice in films like the zombie romance “Warm Bodies” and cancer dramedy “50/50.”  Tatum is in high demand, and he is rising to the occasion by starring in seeminglyRead More
Channing Tatum is well on his way to becoming a bona fide movie star, but the Oscar season prestige project is something he hasn’t tackled yet (the closest would probably have to be “Magic Mike”). That may all be changing this year with the recently announced AFI Film Festival Opening Weekend Gala premiere “Foxcatcher,” and we’ve got the first two photos of Tatum in his most serious role yet. “Foxcatcher” was directed by Bennett Miller, whose last film “Moneyball” was nominated for a butt load of Oscars.

But that could change a year from now as The LA Times reports the two are teaming up for starmaking director Bennett Miller’s “Moneyball” follow-up: “Foxcatcher”, a true life murder/crime drama.
