Fox has just confirmed that an upcoming Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum in the title role will be released on October 7, 2016, making it the third X-Men film to be released in 2016 following Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse.

While rumors about Tatum’s involvement in the project have been circulating for months, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner seemed to end the rumor when she stated that the actor was “a rogue — Channing — he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau and he can handle the action—we all know that! And he’s got a really good heart.”

Following the release date announcement by Fox, Tatum immediately confirmed his role in the film via Twitter


First introduced in the pages of X-Men #266 in the early 90s, the character of Gambit (real name Remy LeBeau) was originally a professional thief whose mutant power allowed him to both create and manipulate kinetic energy – often using kinetically charged playing cards as his weapon of choice. The character eventually went on to make his big-screen debut in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch, but wasn’t a crowd pleaser for the fans who felt that the studio missed the opportunity to show off some of the character’s most iconic traits.

Tatum will reportedly co-produce Gambit with Reid Carolin, Lauren Shuler Donner, and Simon Kinberg. Gambit will arrive in theaters on October 7, 2016.

Official: Benedict Cumberbatch to Play Doctor Strange http://www.geekrest.com/2014/12/official-benedict-cumberbatch-play-doctor-strange/ http://www.geekrest.com/2014/12/official-benedict-cumberbatch-play-doctor-strange/#comments Thu, 04 Dec 2014 21:19:30 +0000 http://www.geekrest.com/?p=52594 ]]> film_benedict-cumberbatch_doctor_strange

It’s official…Benedict Cumberbatch has entered the world of the mystic arts!

The actor will star in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016. The film, directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”

Cumberbatch rose to international prominence with his critically acclaimed turn as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous creation in “Sherlock,” currently preparing its fourth season. The series’ most recent season earned Cumberbatch the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie in 2014, after winning the BAFTA/LA Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year in 2013.

Cumberbatch most recently starred in “The Imitation Game,” playing famed mathematician and logician Alan Turing, and will soon be seen in “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” as Smaug and the Necromancer. For the role of Smaug, Cumberbatch stepped into the world of motion capture to bring the dragon to life. He will next be seen in Scott Cooper’s film “Black Mass,” the story of Whitey Bulger coming to theaters next September, where he stars opposite Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton.

The star’s other credits include the Academy Award-winning “12 Years a Slave,” “War Horse,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “August: Osage County,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “The Fifth Estate,” and “Parade’s End.” Benedict will be returning to the stage this summer in Hamlet at the Barbican with Lyndsey Turner directing. His last stage performance in Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein opposite Jonny Lee Miller awarded him the Olivier.

With “Doctor Strange,” Cumberbatch is just the latest actor to join the bold Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing new heroes and continuing the adventures of fan favorites across multiple films.

First TERMINATOR: GENISYS Trailer Debuts Online http://www.geekrest.com/2014/12/first-terminator-genisys-trailer-debuts-online/ http://www.geekrest.com/2014/12/first-terminator-genisys-trailer-debuts-online/#comments Thu, 04 Dec 2014 19:00:50 +0000 http://www.geekrest.com/?p=52576 ]]> terminator_genisys_trailer

Paramount Pictures has released the first official trailer for Alan Taylor’s Terminator: Genisys, giving us our best look yet at the upcoming sequel which will have Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to his iconic role as the T-800.

Aimed to be a continuation of the previous films, Terminator: Genesis will feature the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the iconic T-800, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Conner, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese and Dayo Okeniyi as Danny Dyson, the son of Miles Dyson (who met his demise in Terminator 2: Judgement).

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.

Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator: Genisys stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung-hun Lee, Michael Gladis and Sandrine Holt and is expected to arrive in theaters on July 1, 2015.

The Falcon has landed! Released earlier today via iTunes, Disney and Lucasfilm have unveiled the first official teaser trailer for the next installment in the Star Wars film saga – Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens – which will take place thirty years after Return of the Jedi.

The 88-second teaser began being shown in just 30 theaters across North America Friday morning before being officially released online after the studio faced criticism for releasing it to such a small number of cinemas.

While little is known about the plot, Lucasfilm has confirmed that The Force Awakens will go in a different direction from the existing continuities already established in the Expanded Universe (ie, novels, video games). Regardless of the new storyline and the addition of actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver to the franchise, one of the greatest thrills will no doubt be seeing Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, and Kenny Baker reprising their iconic roles from the original trilogy.

Tell us what you think of the new trailer below!

Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker and will open worldwide on December 18, 2015.
