We’re all keen to see Channing Tatum strip of once again in Magic Mike XXL, but before that you can get your Channing fix as he stars in Jupiter Ascending which is available to own on Digital HD™ now and arrives onto Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray & DVD on June 29. To celebrate the release which sees Channing play Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, we’re taking a look at some of his best roles.
Step Up (2006)
In the breakthrough performance that propelled him into Hollywood heartthrob status, Channing played troublemaker Tyler Gage who receives the opportunity of a lifetime after vandalizing a performing arts school. The first (and best) movie in the Step Up franchise sees Tyler gaining the chance to earn a scholarship and dance with up-and-coming dancer Nora, played by his now wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
21 Jump Street (2012)
In hilarious comedy 22 Jump Street, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill form the perfect bromance as former high school foes turned rookie cop partners who can’t catch a break. That is until they’re assigned to pose as students and bust a drug ring. Living like teenagers again, they slip back into their adolescent selves and risk the case – and their friendship. It was hardly surprising when a Jump Street sequel was announced but this first movie still has a special place in our hearts.
Magic Mike (2012)
Breaking out the dance moves once again, Channing stars as Michael ‘Magic Mike’ Lane, a roofer by day and male stripper by night in the film inspired by Channing’s own life. Seeing potential in a guy he calls the Kid (Alex Pettyfer), Mike takes the 19-year-old under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of dancing, partying, picking up women and making easy money. It’s not long before the club’s newest act has fans of his own, as the summer opens up to a world of fun, friendship and good times. Meanwhile, Mike meets the Kid’s captivating sister, Brooke (Cody Horn). She’s definitely someone he’d like to know a lot better, and it looks like he has a chance…until his lifestyle gets in the way. This film was an instant hit with Channing admirers, and no doubt XXL will be too.
Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Channing gave a stellar performance in Foxcatcher, proving that he’s just as comfortable in serious roles as he is doing comedy.
Jupiter Ascending (2015)
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. It’s fair to say that no one makes a better half human, half canine than Channing.
