Sappy, romantic weepy films are not my thing. It got horribly poor reviews. The trailer is insipid. I don't have to pay 13 bucks to assume it's a pretty crappy movie.

As I said in the other thread about Tatum, he knows his range as an actor and he chooses his roles wisely. That makes him very smart and in control of his career.

Channing's big test will actually be "21 Jump Street", a film that skews heavily male and will require him to appeal to teenage boys. If that film flops, then he'll be stuck doing this Nicholas Sparks bullshit for the foreseeable future.
As for "Magic Mike", that's something Hollywood hasn't done before, and one that the closest analogy would probably be "Boogie Nights", which did an okay $26 million in 1997. I'm predicting "Mike" does $30-40 million domestically, tops.

I thought Channing Tatum was a girl. Both names are from actresses. Tatum O'Neil and Carol Channing. I hope he doesn't turn out to be "fabulous" with a name like that.

"Magic Mike" will by trashy summer fun for horny teenage girls, their cougar mothers, and the under-served gay male market. Expect a big "opening."

It's a decent opening, but I don't see him becoming an A-lister unless his films do a lot better and he actually becomes a good actor.
Incidentally, why do people think he is good-looking? He looks very bloated.

Isn't he married, to a woman?

Yes, R33. He got married a couple of years ago.
He's from the South, and while he does't do anything from me, apparently he's a good guy. He supported Obama in 2008 even though most people in his region voted against Obama, and he took some heat for it.

Hardly, OP. With The Vow, he goes from C-lister who might have to compromise himself to be in the business to king of the B-list for a week. We all know that the Vow won't have legs after Valentine's Day.
I don't mean to be demeaning by saying that. It is an accomplishment in itself. Tatum seems like a nice guy and I wish him well. But A-lister, he isn't yet. A-listers must have some success, yes, but they also have prestige. A-listers can pretend to Oscar nominations and feel cheated when they don't get one.
Actually, there is nothing wrong with the B movies. I think I like better modest, friendly, eye candy Channing Tatum than some of the A-listers who take themselves too seriously.
That said, I'd like to him in a movie with a good script and great direction to see what it would give. But nothing too pretentious like a Shakespeare first role with Ralph Fines and Vanessa Redgrave, for instance. It's not his place yet.

I think the problem with Channing Tatum is that he isn't able to speak in an intelligible way. It's like he's been inhabited by an alien who hasn't quite gotten the grasp of talking like a human.

Rachel McAdams is so gorgeous, she just needs better material. She should have the career/status of Reese Witheredpoon or the tired Aniston.
|by Anonymous||reply 60||02/24/2012|
R59, by this point does it matter? It's guaranteed to cross $100M, estimates are it'll finish in the $120M range domestically, which is probably a lot more than they were expecting given its budget (in the $30M range?) and past performance of similar movies like "Dear John" and "The Notebook" (which I think both finished in the $80M range). No matter what its performance from now on, its first two weekends made it very profitable, so it's considered a success, and probably a nice relief for the careers of both Tatum and McAdams.
I mean, I don't think it makes them "A-List", but at least they get to avoid the "box-office poison" label (the same can't be said for Witherspoon, who's starting to go down the Kidman route).

Do you think his upcoming GI Joe movie will be a hit or flop?
I think it will flop, mainly because I haven't heard about GI Joe's since the 80's.
|by Anonymous||reply 62||02/24/2012|
The Vow has grossed $116 million on a $30 million budget.
It will top out around $150 million worldwide.
It's a hit.
|by Anonymous||reply 63||02/24/2012|
R62, the G.I. Joe movie is a sequel - I think that reasoning (about not having heard about it since the 80's) would have applied better to the first film when it opened a few years ago, but despite that it still managed to gross okay (but not spectacular) numbers - above $100M domestically. And actually, by your reasoning the first Transformers should have flopped spectacularly, but unfortunately for everyone it didn't.
If they've proceeded to a G.I. Joe sequel, it's because the first one did okay enough. I don't think it'll outright bomb - probably another modest but not breakout profit, but it depends on what's out there that particular weekend. People tend to lower their standards a bit for big action movies in the summer.
|by Anonymous||reply 64||02/24/2012|
R64 Why are you getting all angry? Did you work on the film or something?
I'm not wishing for it to flop - I couldn't care less one way or the other. It's just that I haven't heard about GI Joe since the 80's, so I figured this would be a flop. I had no idea there was even a first film a few years ago (I don't watch much TV or go to the movies so I don't see previews). If the first movie did as well as you say, then maybe it will do well.
|by Anonymous||reply 65||02/24/2012|
? R65, I didn't mean my reply to come off angry (and believe me, I have no interest in the films) - just saying that if we're making predictions about whether a film will be a success or a flop based on whether you've heard of the franchise in a while, objectively there are recent countering data points (the first G.I. Joe movie, and the Transformers franchise).

Ok, this time, yes, this is it.
He has now two successes in a row in different types of movies.
More importantly he has just won big time the heart of the fanboys. If you read their critics, teenage/young adults het fanboys have a hard mancrush on him right now. They find him funny, endearing, down to earth.
Maybe because he plays the role of the unattainable jock who craves the friendship of the fat nerd they identify with? It's crazier than the fangirls wishing they could mary the brooding hearthrob in The Vow, but it works.
Congrats on your hard work and clever choices, Mr Tatum!

His humble beginnings (C-movies, strip dancer)gives him the image of a guy who had to work hard to be where he is today. He doesn't come accross as a spoiled, entitled brat. The fact that he is not trying to hide his less than glorious past, shows him as a simple man who doesn't take himself seriously. A lot of movie goers are reacting positively to this persona.
What's more, a lot of people are discovering him with 21 Jump Street (yeah, even though YOU've known him for a long time). The apeal of the "new guy" is a plus.

His next "A-list star" vehicule White House Down has almost the same plot than Olympus Fallen. OF will be out in March 3 months before Channing's popcorn movie.
I wish him well, because he is a very nice guy, but keeping the A-list status is really not sure.

Well, yes, he was invited at the 2013 Oscars and did well.
People enjoyed his dance with Charlize Theron. Both were appreciated for their effort and they looked classy and like they were happy to be there.
When presenting, he seemed nervous at first. Still, nothing that will be hold against him. He was still likable. Nothing like the Stewart debacle, or the Rudd-McCarthy irritation.
Being liked and being game is important in that business.

Eeps! Did stumble a bit.
He won't be kicked out for that. Especially since there are several other reasons for the film bombing.
But, he didn't get to cement his A-List status as a star able to open any movie no matter what. Don't send him there with only the phone book to read yet.

A-List, indeed. He is #2 on the Forbes List.
He'll have to keep it now. The fact that Sodergbergh, took im under his wing for a while, gave him credibility. Being with Emerich, not so.
But what he has done so far is already some achievement, especially with where he started from.
