Channing Tatum Battles for Seattle


Channing Tatum dons (and removes) riot gear for the 2007 film Battle in Seattle which chronicles the World Trade Organization Seattle riots of 1999. Tatum and Woody Harrelson play riot cops in charge of quelling the anarchists who caused $20 million in damage to downtown Seattle in one of the nation's largest political uprisings. Here are a few of the first images from the film, which despite the serious subject matter promise to offer at least a few opportunities for Tatum to pout those model lips and show off his tattoos.

More stills from Battle in Seattle here.

  4. Here in Seattle we're waiting anxiously to see who's been cast as Jim Foreman (little Seattle inside joke, sorry).

  5. Is this the first time that Tatum and Woody have worked together?

    In my head a Woody has accompanied EVERY Tatum appearance!

  6. I was there, but I don't remember any of the riot cops looking like that. Of course, they were wearing darth vader masks and my eyes were watering from the tear gas, so I may have missed some.

    I just can't wait to see how stupid this movie is.

  7. oh god is he hot. i've heard that he's bi, but I think that's wishful thinking.

  8. he's cute but after awhile the flavor is wearing off. Kick some anarchist but, Tatum.

  9. ??? Missing what's hot about this guy. Best part for me is the name - Tatum. At least it's not the ubiquitous "J" delgue of the 90s - Justin/Jason/Jared/Joshua/et al.

    Woody tho - he just hangs back, lets it flow and the boomerang of sexy just keeps on returning the love.

  10. Ten bucks says Battle barely even acknowledges the WTO side of the story, and paints it all as noble defenders of justice versus mindlessly destructive zombies with no motivation except "violence".
