Channing Tatum looks as if he doesn’t know whether to punch his opponent or kiss him, in a new image from Dito Montiel’s upcoming (April) film Fighting, in which Tatum plays small-town boy Shawn MacArthur, who comes to New York with nothing (quite literally, it appears).
The film’s description from Rouge Pictures: “Barely earning a living selling counterfeit goods on the streets, his luck changes when scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) sees that he has a natural talent for streetfighting. When Harvey offers Shawn help at making the real cash, the two form an uneasy partnership. As Shawn’s manager, Harvey introduces him to the corrupt bare-knuckle circuit, where rich men bet on disposable pawns. Almost overnight, he becomes a star brawler, taking down professional boxers, mixed martial arts champs and ultimate fighters in a series of staggeringly intense bouts. But if Shawn ever hopes to escape the dark world in which he’s found himself, he must now face the toughest fight of his life.”
