Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan celebrated 10 Years, their latest movie together, at a cast brunch in NYC over the weekend. Hear Jenna gush about her hot husband and find out about her hopes to make more movies with him in today's PopSugar Rush.
Channing Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan, joined their 10 Years costars yesterday morning in NYC for a special brunch at the Hotel Chantelle. Along with Channing and Jenna, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Max Minghella, Kate Mara, Ari Graynor, and Rosario Dawson stepped out to mingle at the meal. Channing and Jenna aren't the only real-life couple who worked on the film — Kate and Max are also dating! 10 Years opened in limited release last Friday, and the star-studded cast continues to throw their weight behind the high-school-reunion-themed film.
We caught up with Channing and Jenna before they chowed down on their meal, and they told us about their own experiences as teenagers. Channing skipped his own high school reunion, but says he knows their movie is still true to life. Jenna described her high school years as typically Texan, but with the addition of dance class every night. The training served her well — it was on the set of the dance flick Step Up that she and Channing first got together.
This week at the theater, Channing Tatum goes home for his high school reunion in 10 Years, Philip Seymour Hoffman entrances lost soul Joaquin Phoenix in Paul Thomas Anderson's latest drama The Master, and Josh Radnor captures the interest of mature coed Elizabeth Olsen in Liberal Arts. Take a look through pictures of these starkly different new releases and tell us what you'll be seeing this weekend!
He's played an undercover cop, a hopeless romantic, and a stripper in 2012, and Channing Tatum is adding to his banner year with another memorable performance in 10 Years. Tatum is part of an ensemble as Jake, a man returning to his hometown for his high school reunion. Not only does the film provide its fair share of belly laughs, but it also paints a bittersweet portrait of what all those archetypes from our favorite teen comedies (the ones where someone's trying to lose their virginity at prom) might be up to 10 years later. All the players are still the same, but this time around, the cruel jock (Chris Pratt) is attempting to make amends with the geeks he beat up in high school, the popular girl's (Lynn Collins) life is no longer one to envy, and everyone is struggling to reconcile who they used to be with the people they've become.
Jake's on-the-brink-of-engagement relationship with his girlfriend Jess (Jenna Dewan) is the primary focus of the movie, but it's just one of the dynamics on display throughout the night. The couple arrives in town for a preparty at old high school royalty Sam (Ari Graynor) and Cully's (Chris Pratt) house. Now living in the 'burbs with kids and a mortgage, their life is far from the homecoming court of yesteryear. One of the things that I appreciate about this movie is that it could so easily slide into a superficial trip down memory lane, but instead it plays up the realism. It's evident that despite their popular past, Sam and Cully aren't content with the paths they've taken, and they're not the only ones. To find out more about why I loved 10 Years, just keep reading.
10 Years hits theaters on Sept. 14, and we have an exclusive clip! The comedy boasts an impressive cast, featuring real-life couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, along with Justin Long, Rosario Dawson, and Chris Pratt. It's the first time Channing and Jenna have acted together since 2006's Step Up.
The film kicks off when a group of former high-school friends come together for their reunion and confront what has changed — and what hasn't — since their teen years. Channing stars as Jake. He's preparing to propose to his longtime girlfriend, played by Jenna, on the eve of the reunion, but when he runs into his former high-school flame, he finds himself questioning what could have been.
Channing Tatum's mug has been all over the big screen in 2012, and he's back once again in 10 Years. Don't expect a big blockbuster opening this time, though; the little indie dramedy looks more like the kind of film you'll ultimately watch when it comes out on DVD. It's not that the trailer is terrible: 10 Years has an amazing cast, which includes Jenna Dewan, Justin Long, Ari Graynor, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt, and Aubrey Plaza, as just a few of the former students (and their significant others) that are catching up at their reunion. The problem is that the trailer is wholly unremarkable. The comedic parts are just mildly charming, and the dramatic parts seem overly cheesy.
Tatum is at the core of a story as a guy who's moved on and fallen in love after high school (with his real wife, Dewan), but obviously still has some leftover feelings for his high school love (Dawson). The rest of the pack seem to be a mixed bag of people who have changed and others who have never really moved on from their teenage years. The movie hits theaters on Sept. 14, so check the trailer when you read more
Wondering what Channing Tatum looked like in high school? Wonder no more, because the new poster for his reunion drama, 10 Years, puts the actor center stage, looking like a fresh young teen. He's pictured with Rosario Dawson, who plays his high school sweetheart, though when the class meets again a decade after graduation, the couple is no longer together. The ensemble also includes a host of people I can't wait to see at a reunion together, like Chris Pratt, Ari Graynor, Aubrey Plaza, and Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan. I'm excited to see more from this movie, but for now I'll settle for looking at Tatum in this poster. See a bigger version after the jump.
Channing Tatum is one of Hollywood's busiest actors lately (he has parts as a romantic, a con artist, and a heroin addict coming up), and he continues to add more to his plate. This time, things are getting nostalgic: he's attached to star in and produce Ten Year, an ensemble drama about a 10-year high school reunion.
Screenwriter Jamie Linden is currently working on the script, and there are other actors he has in mind for roles, including Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan, Chris Pine, and husband/wife duo Chris Pratt and Anna Faris. Reunions are always good fodder for drama and kind of hot right now (ABC series My Generation tackles the subject and is debuting this Fall). I'm always game to catch up with a group of 20-somethings and their myriad issues, but for me the casting is what will make or break the film. The prospect of having not one but two real-life couples is almost too cutesy. Do you think this project is off to a good start?
