Channing Tatum Tweets 'Magic Mike XXL' Poster - And It's Hot!
Channing Tatum certainly knows how to make a statement. The actor tweeted a poster from his upcoming film "Magic Mike XXL," and it's a doozy.

The poster features Tatum shirtless and pointing to his goods with the tagline "Coming 07.01.15" blasted across his groin. The innuendo is anything but subtle.

The sequel to the hit male strip club drama "Magic Mike" opens in theaters on July 1.

Director-producer Gregory Jacobs told PEOPLE about the project: "It's a road-trip picture. Mike and the guys get back together, and adventure ensues."

It's no secret that Channing Tatum will star as "X-Men" character Gambit in an upcoming stand-alone film about his personal favorite mutant, and on Monday Fox announced the official release date for the film.

"X-Men" fans will have two reasons to be excited for 2016, as "Gambit" (or what we assume will be officially titled "X-Men Origins: Gambit") will debut just five months after "X-Men: Apocalypse," which hits theaters May 27, 2016.

Tatum and "Foxcatcher" co-stars Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo took home the Hollywood Ensemble Award for their performances in the film, the true story of paranoid-schizophrenic millionaire John du Pont (Carell), whose relationship with wrestler brothers Dave (Ruffalo) and Mark Schultz (Tatum) ends in a tragedy while ...

‘Foxcatcher’ With Channing Tatum And Steve Carell Is a Solid A

November 14th, 2014 9:10pm EST
Honestly, I had no desire to see this film. I'm not a big wrestling fan. Steve Carell, even though I think he’s talented, doesn't really get me into the theatre. Plus, I'm not a Magic Mike fan, so Channing Tatum doesn't do it for me, but all of my critic friends have been saying it is a movie not to be missed. So, I've check it out.

The film comes from director Bennett Miller, who is loved by critics. He did Brad Pitt's Moneyball and Capote, both heavily adored by the Academy, so it is no surprise that Foxcatcher will probably do very well this awards season. Bennett also re-te...

Director Confirms No 'Magic Mike' Sequel For Matthew McConaughey
According to Director Gregory Jacobs, Matthew McConaughey will not be bringing his shirtless self back to the set of the new "Magic Mike" sequel, "Magic Mike XXL."

That readers, is a darn shame!

Since McConaughey won an Oscar for "Dallas Buyers Club," word was that he would not return to film a sequel to the wildly popular "Magic Mike." McConaughey, who was the type of actor who defied convention for many years, rep...

Scarlett Johansson
Ethan and Joel Coen are slowly gathering a spectacular cast for their next film, Hail, Caesar!. Jonah Hill recently confirmed he's joined the project, and Scarlett Johansson is reportedly in negotiations.

According to Variety, the Coen brothers are working to cast the pregnant Johansson for the film, which is ironically about a 1950s actress who becomes pregnant just as her new film begins production. The movie will follow a "fixer" for the film studio who works to keep all of their stars out of trouble, and it sounds like this pregnant actress is the latest issue for him.

The Top 10 Male Models Turned Actors
Who says they're just a pretty face? While we often times view male models as baloon-brained as their stereotypical female counterparts, it's not always so. It's been proven time and time again that the best actors can come from the most unlikely places. Just because male models don't say much, doesn't mean they don't have much to say.

These runway superstars turned leading men have entirely other attributes other than boyish smiles, hot bods, and the ability to look good in just their underwear. They can actually act as well! And sometimes, they do it better than anyone else. No one plays...

The persistent rumors claiming Channing Tatum would play Gambit of the X-Men appear to have had some solid sources.

Lauren Shuler, a producer of X-Men: Days of Future Past, has confirmed Tatum would play the cajun character during a conversation on the red carpet with TotalFilm.

Shuler brought up the idea of bringing Remy LeBeau/Gambit up to the big screen, and when asked what type of actor she would want to play the character, she simply said, "It is Channing... He’s a rogue, Channing, he's a rascal, like Remy LeBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that."

Do These Hollywood Actors Look Better Or Worse With Facial Hair?
Facial hair can make a man look sophisticated or like a slob. Charming or a creep. Dozens of A-list actors in Hollywood have tried a beard on for size, so tell us – do these guys look better or worse with their facial hair?

For Argo, Ben Affleck made like a hockey player and kept a beard for "the playoffs," AKA awards season. He shaved it off at an Oscars after-party when his film won Best Picture.

George Clooney, like Ben Affleck, grew a "producer beard" while Argo was striving for awards. He also rocked just a moustache for a bit, but for the last year or so he's been clean-shav...

The 10 Fittest Male Celebrities In Hollywood
Chris Hemsworth has problems most men would envy. For example, he put on so much muscle while he was preparing to play "Thor" that his costume didn't fit.

The Australian star told the Los Angeles Times in 2011: "I got the part and immediately started looking at the comic books, and the guy is 500 pounds or something and looks like Schwarzenegger. And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that.' But I have to get bigger. (The filmmakers) kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.'"

The "Thor" costume was altered to fit his new shape, and movie execs ordered Hemsworth to g...

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

Channing Tatum split
Last week, Jean-Claude Van Damme demonstrated that he's still quite flexible by performing a stunning horizontal split between two moving Volvo trucks. At 53, the Muscles from Brussels can still do some amazing stunts.

But he's been outdone. Or has he?

Channing Tatum, who's currently filming "22 Jump Street," performed a similar stunt on the set of his new film.

Similar to Van Damme's commercial, Enya's "Only Time" plays in the background, and the actor says in a voice over: "I've had my ups and downs."

He continues, "Being an undercover cop, that's what made me what I am today. Survivi...

The couple welcomed daughter Everly in early June, and Tatum spent a lot of time in the bathroom trying to get a hold on his emotions.
He explained to  Chelsea Handler, "It's like someone's hurting, someone that you love, and you can't do anything about it. You physically cannot help... I probably went to the bathroom four times and had a crying fit. Like, I'm just like, 'I don't know what to do!'"
