Magic Mike still of Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum

It's official. There will be a Magic Mike sequel. Warner Bros has set the release date for July 3, 2015. The original film was based on Channing Tatum's early days as a male exotic dancer. Steven Soderbergh directed the film which was a surprise hit. The film is being turned into a Broadway musical.

Channing won the Trailblazer Award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Here Channing talks backstage about winning the award and the Magic Mike sequel. Channing says he is writing the film now with his co-writer. He says this movie will be a road trip movie. He says he wants some reality in it, but he doesn't want it to be dark. He wants it to be lots of fun. He says he thinks the entire cast, including Matthew McConaughey, will be back, but no one's deals have been done yet which is kind of scary. He says that there is just something about McConaughey and what he brings to the role of Dallas. We agree. Take a look:

Cover of Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey

Syfy has greenlit a new space opera series called The Expanse which will be based on James S.A. Corey's bestselling novels. The first book in the series is called Leviathan Wakes. The story is set 200 years in the future when humanity has colonized beyond the Earth. But those that live in the outer asteroid belt have life much harder than those who live on the inner planets. Leviathan Wakes was nominated in 2012 for the Hugo Award for best novel and for the Locus Award for best sci-fi novel.

Syfy has ordered 10 episodes of the show, but no casting has been announced. Oscar-nominated screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man) are set to write and executive produce the series. Syfy is really getting into original series. It has already given orders for new series 12 Monkeys, Olympus, Dominion, and Z Nation.

Syfy President Dave Howe had this to say about the project, "The Expanse is epic in scale and scope and promises to be Syfy's most ambitious series to date. Bringing this coveted book franchise to television with our partners at Alcon and the Sean Daniel Co. is a giant win for Syfy, reinforcing our overall strategy to produce bold, provocative and compelling sci-fi fantasy stories."

Audiences also reacted favorably, however there are only so many people who are going to want to watch a movie focused around an NFL draft.

Draft Day was followed by Divergent, Noah, God's Not Dead and The Grand Budapest Hotel. You can view the complete box office report here.
