Another movie I had no fucking clue about, until this trailer dropped. If I’m not up to date on pop culture, I’m just a slob, as opposed to a pop culture slob. Anyways. Neither here, nor there. This movie looks fucking insane, wonderfully so, if the trailer is any indication.
I don’t give a fuck, I love this idea. Namely, because the Jump Street series has spent its life ridiculing its own existence and thereby making said existence really fun to watch.
Doug Liman is the latest character to get involved in the Gambit Movie Saga. A saga that is beginning to give the Ant-Man Movie Saga a run for its money in terms of twists, turns, and talent drop-outs. The director will be helming the Mutie Movie starring Channing Tatum, should everything hold-up in the final negotiations.
Yup. Yup, I’m ready for this movie.
Léa Seydoux is going to be hanging out in the Gambit movie. Doing female lead things.
Channing Tatum is Gambit. He is not-not Gambit. Despite reports earlier this week.
You going to welch out on starring in this movie too, Tatum? Eh? Eh!
Wait — what? Like, I didn’t even find myself excited for Channing Tatum as Gambit (despite enjoying him as an actor). And now news hits that he is leaving, and I’m…sad? What’s going on in this world. With this film. Which had already debuted Tatum at ComicCon. With my heart. Which had set itself (or so I thought) on “Tatum ain’t my Gambit” rather definitively.
Weird coupling, but I can dig it. Rupert Wyatt is the director of the surprisingly good Rise of the Planet Apes. And now he’s directing Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie. Weird couplings all around, when it comes to this movie. But I ain’t opposed.
