TOPS List image
This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

2012 has definitely been Channing Tatum’s year—his romantic drama The Vow nearly scored $200 million in box office receipts; in March, he was the star (with Jonah Hill) of the surprisingly not bad 21 Jump Street film adaptation/reboot; then, this summer, there was a little Steven Soderbergh movie called Magic Mike.  The story of a male stripper...

Ice Age Continental Drift
This summer took its time launching its kids films (partly because the summer season for movies starts before most kids get out of school), but we've seen some winners in the bunch, and Ice Age: Continental Drift took this weekend.

Having made $75 Million already (with a $7 Million dollar budget), Magic Mike is one of the most profitable films of the year, and one of the sleeper hits of the summer. And you know what that means: Sequel talk. Star and narrative inspiration Channing Tatum says they're already working on it.

Box Office Predictions: 'The Amazing Spider-Man' Beats All

Published by

Andrew Garfield
Over the past two days The Amazing Spider-Man has already grossed nearly $60 Million stateside. Calling it the weekend winner doesn't take much work. It's going up against Katy Perry: Part of Me, and Savages and if it can't take both it's because it completely collapsed.

Ted - Party Girls
This weekend was about counter-programming, but both Ted and Magic Mike opened bigger and stronger than many of the summer's supposed blockbusters. Ted exceeded all expectations, as is a monster hit, which paves the way for more Seth MacFarlane movies. Timing is everything.

Magic Mike Movie Review
Seeing a woman as an erotic dancer in cinema isn't new. It's been going on for decades. Therefore, when a film like Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike comes along, it grabs your attention.

Magic Mike
So, this weekend would look to be the quiet before the storm. Next week is dominated by Spider-Man (Amazing or not), then comes the Ice Age, and then a little film called The Dark Knight Rises. But Warner Brothers has smartly targeted women for Magic Mike, and it went from little awareness...

Two of Channing Tatum's former co-workers have accused him of stealing their stripper moves for his new movie Magic Mike, in which he plays, well, a stripper.

Magic Mike Channing Tatum
Steven Soderbergh continues his streak as one of modern cinema’s most unpredictable, genre-skipping directors (his last few films were a spy thriller, a medical disaster film, a documentary, a true-crime comedy, and an experimental character sketch of a prostitute, respectively) with Magic Mike, a dramedy about a male stripper who really just wants to design custom furniture even as...
