Fighting: Channing Tatum Puts Up His Dukes


So what's up with all these new fighting movies. Is it a trend inspired by the recent rise in popularity of Ultimate Fighting Competitions? I'd be inclined to think so. They all seem to be starring these pretty boys.

Here are some first shots from a new one starring Channing Tatum called, Fighting. I don't know, the photo kind of reminds me of Riff from West Side Story.

First Showing writes: "Fighting sounds a lot like Fight Club, but with a lot less imagination and Brad Pitt and a lot more realism. The cast includes Channing Tatum as the main character Sean Arthur as well as Terrence Howard, Brian J. White, and Luis Guzmán. Sean Arthur is a young man who scrapes up a living hustling counterfeit merchandise in NYC. With family tragedy in his past and his father keeping him at a distance, this outsider has little to motivate him. A chance encounter with veteran street-fighting coach Harvey Boarden (Howard) leads to a whole new career for Sean. The ensuing bouts get tough, especially with the criminal element horning in, so Sean gets tougher. He will fight to win, not only the prize money but also the unexpected new relationships that are strengthening him."

Since the plot sounds a bit tired, the least they could give us is some skin.


Can't we all just get along?

Sean Faris Puts Up His Dukes


I was recently offered a peek at the trailer for the upcoming film Never Back Down starring Sean Faris which i'd probably describe as Fight Club meets Karate Kid meets The O.C. in Florida. Faris plays a newcomer in town who makes the mistake of mixing it up with a bully determined to make him look like a bitch. He then finds a Mr. Miyagi-style mixed martial arts coach in Djimon Hounsou. There's no gay element in the movie as far as I can see, except the fact that two Abercrombie-type twinks are flexing their sweaty chests and biceps for two hours while pummeling each other as a Calvin Klein underwear model looks on. And well, that seemed pretty gay to me.





Faris' rival is played by Cam Gigandet.
