Channing Tatum is about to enter the circle. The Golden Circle that is. The 35-year-old announced via Twitter he’s joined the Kingsman sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Matthew Vaughn returns to direct the sequel which will once again follow the adventures of London hooligan turned secret spy, Gary “Eggsy” Unwin played by the adorable Taron Egerton. Also booking a return trip are Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Firth. The latter’s addition is surprising given he appeared to die in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

If Tatum joining the spy adventure franchise wasn’t exciting enough, there are reports a legendary singer is in talks to appear as well. Find out who below.

miss-peregrines-home-for-peculiar-children

If a film has ‘peculiar’ in the title, there’s only one man right for the job.

When it came time to find a director for the movie adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ debut novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, naturally Tim Burton was called. The 57-year-old director certainly has the market cornered when it comes to whimsical quirky fantasy flicks.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Movie Synopsis

From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.

Eva Green plays the titular character who opens her home to gifted orphans. Asa Butterfield plays Jacob Portman who discovers he’s responsible for protecting the other orphans from the evil Mr. Barron played by Samuel L. Jackson. Allison Janney, Judi Dunch, Rupert Everett, Chris O’Dowd and Terence Stamp round out the cast.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children enchants moviegoers on September 30. Check out the visually-stunning trailer below.

chi-raq-movie-trailer

“Welcome to Chi-Raq! Land of pain, misery and strife,” says Samuel L. Jackson.

Spike Lee has courted controversy throughout his film career. His latest, Chi-raq (portmanteau of Chicago and Iraq), tackles the subject of gun and gang violence in Chicago’s rough South Side. The film is described as a satire based on the Greek comedy, Lysistrata, by Aristophanes.

Teyonah Parris plays Lysistrata, a woman who organizes a sex strike to protest black-on-black violence on the South Side. Joining Parris and Jackson is a star-studded cast which includes Nick Cannon, John Cusack, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett and Jennifer Hudson. The topic definitely hits close to home for J-Hud. The Chicago native lost her mother and 7-year-old nephew due to a violent crime back in 2008.

Chi-raq opens in select theatres on December 4, just in time for awards consideration. It’ll then move to Amazon Prime. Speaking of which, the drama is the first original movie from Amazon Studios. Check out the trailer below.

the-hateful-eight

The road for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film has been a rocky one. The 52-year director almost scrapped the entire project when the script leaked online last year. At one point he explored the option of publishing it as a novel instead of a feature film. After a live reading of the leaked script in April, he decided to go ahead but tweak it and have a different ending.

The Hateful Eight centers on a group of eight grizzled, gun-toting outlaws who have been forced to take refuge in the same tiny shack by a vicious blizzard. Favorite stalwarts Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern all join forces with Tarantino again. New to Quentin’s universe are Jennifer Jason Leigh, Demian Bichir, and Channing Tatum. The latter makes a rumored cameo appearance.

The Hateful Eight treks into selected theaters on Christmas Day and nationwide on January 8. Check out the first trailer below.

The Hateful Eight Movie Synopsis

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

Dominic Cooper Has Reasonable Doubts In New Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
reasonable-doubt-movie-trailer

Typically a January release date signals a lack of confidence from the movie studio. After watching the first trailer for Reasonable Doubt, I think it has the potential to be a small sleeper hit. Hopefully, all the surprising twists and turns in this game of cat and mouse weren’t all revealed in the clip.

Up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run and feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal found with the body and blamed for the crime. Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up.

Reasonable Doubt lands in theaters January 17 and also stars Gloria Reuben and Samuel L. Jackson. Check out the trailer below.

The first Avenger is back. Marvel Comics just unleashed the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans and his bulging biceps return for a second go round as the titular superhero. This time he’s joined by Scarlet Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford and Sebastian Stan who returns as the Winter Soldier. We also see the first glimpse of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon.

The sequel takes place after Steve Rogers helped save New York City in The Avengers. He’s now living in Washington, DC trying to adjust to modern life after being unearthed from a 70-year icy sleep. I know I’d be cranky 😉

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, The Winter Soldier also stars Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Hayley Atwell. It comes out April 4, 2014. I wasn’t completely in love with the first film, but this one looks really good. Check out the spankin’ new trailer below.

Even though both Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus recently topped a survey naming them as the worst celebrity role models, it appears some parents are angrier with Samuel L. Jackson. At least they are in this Funny or Die clip.

Apparently, if Jackson is in a film, you probably shouldn’t let little ones watch them. His roles in Shaft, Unbreakable, Jungle Fever and several more films have inspired children to behave badly and quote age-inappropriate dialogue. Watch parents yell, “F*ck you, Samuel L. Jackson!” in the video below.

Josh Brolin Is Pretty Damn Fine In Oldboy Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

This looks so good and not just because Josh Brolin looks sexy as hell. I can’t believe it’s from Spike Lee. It’s definitely not his usual type of joint that examines race relations or political issues. Apparently, it’s a remake of the 2003 South Korean cult film, Oldboy.

“This is the first time I am doing something like this, so it’s interesting how you can stay true to the essence of the original source material, but make it something different, and I know that’s what we are going to do with this one.” – Spike Lee

The film stars Josh Brolin as Joe Doucett who is kept imprisoned for 20 years in solitary confinement without any acknowledgement as to why he’s being held captive. During his imprisonment he discovers his wife has been killed. When he’s surprisingly released, he goes on a mission to find the person responsible for his imprisonment and his daughter. On his quest, he discovers that his life is still caught in conspiracy and torment. Check out the red band trailer below. Oldboy hits theaters on October 25.
