It always seems that every week a new sequel is getting released in to theaters. Even though not all of them always live up to the original, here are five that are worth checking out in 2014.
Andrew Garfield is returning as Peter Parker/Spider-Man as is Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy to this sequel to the 2012 reboot of the original Spider-Man franchise. This movie will see Spider-Man once again taking down the bad guys and spending time with his love Gwen. New characters are introduced in this film including Electro played by Jamie Foxx and Rhino played by Paul Giamatti.
Channing Tatum is producing an hour-long reality show pilot for A&E about his restaurant/bar in New Orleans called Saints & Sinners. The show will reportedly follow the behind the scenes happenings of the restaurant/bar.
Tatum opened Saints & Sinners in 2012 on Bourbon Street with his friend and business partner Keith Kurtz. It has not been reported if the actor will appear on the show.
According to E! News, production of the show is still in the early stages and it has yet to be announced when the show will air.
Summer 2013 has seen a lot of big movies bomb at the box office. Will Smith's $130 million apocalyptic thriller After Earth took in a measly $60 million in the U.S. The $150 million Channing Tatum/Jamie Foxx action movie White House Down disappointed with only $70 million domestic. When you factor in that the cost of marketing these films equals their budgets, their lackluster performances are all the more troublesome for Hollywood. But the most infamous bomb of the summer was Walt Disney's $250 million remake of The Lone Ranger,starring Johnny Depp and based on a nearly 80 year-old franchise (because that's something the kids want to see).
From Sexiest Man Alive to Sexiest Daddy to be, Channing Tatum and his gorgeous wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum are expecting a baby. This will be the first for the couple who met on the set of Step Up, back in 2006 and were married in 2009. Both actors have had an amazing year filled with exciting and popular movies like Magic Mike and shows like American Horror Story: Asylum. This year the couple, both 32, admitted they were ready to start a family but wanted it to be unplanned.
Tatum recently revealed he would love to have three children but wants to have a healthy baby first, and then see where the couple can go from there. "I would hope so!" Dewan-Tatum told UsWeekly when asked if babies were on the brain. "I just don't know when. When it's meant to be, it will happen," she said. The baby is due sometime in 2013.
The best summer party that doesn't take place on the beach is Sapore di Sale, the summer aperitivo at Da Mikele by Luzzo's. Sapore di Sale, meaning a taste of salt, is a classic Italian tune, perfect for a party.
The 35-year-old actress and her 32-year-old husband of 3 years, are finally going to start their own family and are expecting a child this fall. The happy couple have been candid about starting their own big brood of children, even telling mags like People that Pratt wanted a "big family" and that he wanted to be a father as soon as possible.
Faris has been quite busy lately as her movie The Dictator opens in theaters May 16. She is also currently in London filming Working Title's I Give It a Year with Rose Byrne and Simon Baker. Pratt is filming Zero Dark Thirty and we will see him in Ten Year alongside Channing Tatum this September.
We wish you all the best guys!
Another shout-out for this week is a happy 33rd birthday to Rachel McAdams. We all know her as the woman we both admired and hated simulatenously in girl classics like The Hot Chick, Mean Girls, & The Notebook. We know she's sorry that we're really jealous of her...but she can't help it that she's popular.
Not only has McAdams portrayed the signature gorgeous blonde in high school and the romantic lead in a Nicholas Sparks novel, the versatile star has also ventured into other film genres. From psychological thrillers like Red Eye to frat boy comedies like Wedding Crashers all the way back to romantic drama The Time Traveler's Wife. Right now, the actress is keeping herself busy with many projects, notably the sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Also next on the lineup is The Vow, also a romantic drama, co-starring Channing Tatum and is set for release in February 2012.
Get those dollar bills out, ladies!
We love you Ashton...but if the rumors of you and (supposedly divorcing) wife Demi Moore turn out to be true, the ultimate MILF has plenty of testosterone around a movie set that can keep her hands busy.
For the new film Magic Mike, hottie Channing Tatum plays the titular character as a male stripper, eerily similar to the job he took when he was younger. The actors portrays a veteran dancer who teaches newbies about the business while participating in a little flirtationship with Demi's cougar character. Dirty dancing along with Tatum are Matt Bomer, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, and Alex Pettyfer.
That's right folks, the 1992 flick starring Whitney Houston, playing the role of a pop singer, and Kevin Coster, a former Secret Service agent, is in discussions for a remake. The modern version may have Rihanna taking over Houston's role. Hunky G.I. Joe star Channing Tatum is being considered for Coster's.
Are we really ready for a remake of this movie already? And who's gonna play Rihanna's stalker? Let's just hope Chris Brown isn't being considered.
