Channing Tatum donned an all-white suit to hit the dance floor with costars Jamie Foxx and Maggie Gyllenhaal at a party to celebrate their film, White House Down, in Cancun, Mexico, last night. Channing, who was sporting scruffy new facial hair, showed off his dance moves alongside Jamie, and also paired off for a dance with Maggie, who wore a white Apiece Apart dress. Jamie, who plays President James Sawyer in the action flick, posed with Channing in front of a mock presidential portrait for the promotional fun ahead of the film's June 28 release.
Channing has a lot going on at the moment. He has been spending the bulk of his time in London with his pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan, while on location to shoot Jupiter Ascending. Although he has been keeping up a busy schedule, the expectant pair snuck in a recent double date with another A-list couple. Channing and Jenna paired up with his Jupiter Ascending costar Mila Kunis and her boyfriend, Ashton Kutcher, for a date night at the London Opera last weekend.
We're just two months away from White House Down's June 28 release, but why wait until then to see Channing Tatum looking all hot and ready for action? Tatum plays John Cale, a DC policeman who gets caught in the White House when the building is attacked by enemy forces. Suddenly, it's in John's hands to save the president (Jamie Foxx) — and to look smokin' hot in the process. Go ahead and check out the film stills, and don't be ashamed to wallpaper your desktop with them.

Mila Kunis and her Jupiter Ascending costar Channing Tatum had a night out in London yesterday with their significant others. She brought along boyfriend Ashton Kutcher, while Channing had the company of his pregnant wife, Jenna Dewan. The foursome were reportedly able to attend the premiere of the English National Opera's Sunken Garden at the Barbican Center. The evening of opera was a bit of a change from the sci-fi material Mila and Channing have been busy with. Work on Jupiter Ascending has both Channing and Mila hunkering down in the English capital for a good period of time. Mila's apparently staying in the city itself, while Channing and Jenna are enjoying the last weeks of her pregnancy at Sienna Miller's house outside of London in the Cotswolds.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation is out in theaters this week after a bit of a delay, presumably to improve the movie, but after seeing it, I wonder how bad it was before. Filled with tanks, explosions, buff bodies, and 3D (the newest must-have accessory for action flicks), the sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has all the elements of a great action movie. Unfortunately, it's a barrage of unintentionally hilarious dialogue from stars Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki, unbelievable gadgetry, and plot holes. Thankfully, there is some standout action, and yes, Channing Tatum appears, but it's not enough to constitute a trip to the theater. Here are my reasons for why you can skip this sequel.
- There's not enough Tatum. Don't be fooled by the trailer or the pictures, Duke (Tatum) is only on screen for about 20 minutes. Maybe it's because we know the film was held for a year in order to add more Tatum, but his scenes feel obviously shoehorned in. I felt robbed.
- There's not enough Bruce Willis, either. When the soldiers are cornered, they turn to one of their own: the retired General Joe Colton (Willis). Willis is allowed to strut around and enjoy the fact that, after years in the suburbs, Colton's skills — and his arsenal of weapons hidden in kitchen cabinets — are needed. I just wish he had more (and longer) scenes.
- The plotholes are too wide to overlook. This time around, the team is ambushed by an enemy posing as the president, and only three soldiers remain. Abandoned in the desert halfway around the world, Roadblock (Johnson), Lady Jaye (Palicki), and Flint (D.J. Cotrona) find their way back to the states. Presumed dead by the government, they lie low in Roadblock's old neighborhood and somehow acquire an entire stock of state-of-the-art technology, the kind that allows you to put a hair in a lipstick tube and have its DNA code analyzed and matched within seconds. You know, just the gadgets you have lying around.

Channing Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan, attended a fan event in London last night. Jenna and her baby bump led the way, while Channing stopped to greet fans and sign autographs. He then hopped in the car and smiled for cameras before throwing up a peace sign as he and Jenna drove away. The evening out coincided with the debut of the White House Down trailer. Channing was also featured on a teaser poster that was released yesterday as part of promotion for the film, which hits theaters this Summer. Channing is currently juggling press for the project with another action film and hit the red carpet for the UK premiere of G.I Joe Retaliation last week. He and Jenna are set to remain in London for the time being, and have revealed that they plan on welcoming their first child there in the coming months.
Judging by the recent release Olympus Has Fallen and this new trailer for White House Down, I don't know why you'd ever want to visit the president's home. At least in White House Down, you have Channing Tatum, who is geared up to make you feel all safe and protected. Tatum plays John Cale, a police officer who's taking a tour of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with his daughter when the building suddenly gets attacked. Coincidentally, he's also up for a job as a Secret Service agent, and it looks like he gets a prime opportunity to prove his skill in protecting the president (Jamie Foxx).
You don't get to see much in the trailer aside from explosions, and Tatum only really speaks to instruct the president to "go, go, go!" but it looks like your standard Summer action flick . . . and a lot like Olympus Has Fallen. And yet director Roland Emmerich is a guy who knows how to attack the White House (see: Independence Day), and Tatum is here doing his best John McClane impression and looking great as usual, so there's that. White House Down comes out June 28, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
The trailer for White House Down is coming soon, and as if we weren't already excited about seeing Channing Tatum in the preview for the action flick, we're getting a nice look at him in the new poster. Tatum is loaded up with weapons, wearing a dirty tank top, and looking determined to defend his country and president (played by Jamie Foxx). Rugged Tatum? I'll take it. See a larger version of the poster after the break.
Channing Tatum joined Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, and more of his G.I. Joe Retaliation costars for the film's London premiere today. He dressed up in a suit to debut the film in the UK ahead of its March 27 release overseas. Channing has special ties to the city since he and pregnant wife Jenna Dewan announced that their first child will be born in London while he is on location shooting his next project.
Along with his latest film, he's also promoting the upcoming MTV Movie Awards. Channing stars in a new promo video with Rebel Wilson that was released last week. It could be a big night for the star since he's nominated for three awards for Magic Mike, including best male performance, best shirtless performance, and best musical moment, at the April 14 show.
