Anyone who's heard him at a Q&A, been present for one of his lectures, or even listened to a commentary knows one thing about Steven Soderbergh; he's a great conversationalist. Some filmmakers can barely talk about their own work, but a discussion with Soderbergh won't just involve him talking candidly about his own process and films, but also anything that happens to come up.

We're a couple of weeks away from the arrival of the actioner "Haywire," the first of two Steven Soderbergh films getting released this year (to be followed by male stripper drama "Magic Mike" in the summer), but with the director's retirement/hiatus from filmmaking looming, he's not hanging around.

Channing Tatum, co-star of Steven Soderbergh’s “Haywire,” told reporters that there was considerably more competition on the set of his next film with the director, the male stripper tale “Magic Mike,” than there was on their current collaboration.

Perhaps we're not quite as excited for this film as E! Online writer Ted Casablanca, whose breathless reports about the picture are kind of amusing (even straight guys didn't write this breathlessly about, say, "Showgirls," did they?), but two Steven Soderbergh films in one year ain't too bad. The first one of 2012 arrives in January, Gina Carano's action thriller "Haywire." The picture also co-stars Channing Tatum, who's directly responsible for Soderbergh's second film of next year, the stripper film "Magic Mike." Based on Tatum's experiences as a male stripper in his pre-fame days, the actor pitched it to the filmmaker a few months after "Haywire" wrapped and the Academy Award-winning director was intrigued by the prospect of a film milleu he'd never really seen onscreen before.

'21 Jump Street' Gets Slightly Different Trailer & A Poster, New German 'Avengers' Trailer Shows New Stuff (But Is In German)

If there's one potentially awful big screen remake of a classic (maybe the word classic should have been in ironic quotes) that we're looking forward to, it's "21 Jump Street." There's really no reason this thing should work - it's a comedic take on a dramatic series, which worked out so well for "Starsky & Hutch;" it co-stars the frequently wooden Channing Tatum; and it just reeks of a kind of desperate nostalgia. That said: we cannot wait. And now we have a new-ish trailer and poster to hold us over. Also, some new footage from "The Avengers" comes courtesy of a German trailer that seems awfully strident and authoritarian.

Traditionally, January is something of a wasteland for the movies; as the last of the awards season pictures roll out, studios tend to use it to dump product that they know won't set the world alight critically or commercially. This year is, for the most part, no exception: dicey prospects like found footage horror "The Devil Inside," long-delayed Katherine Heigl vehicle "One For The Money," unnecessary vampire fourquel "Underworld: Awakening" and a film starring Dolly Parton are among what January has to offer. But there's at least one release coming in the first month of the year that promises something far more potent; "Haywire."

"Life's all about moments of impact and how they change our lives forever, but what if one day you could never remember any of them?," Channing Tatum asks off the top of the new trailer for "The Vow," spelling out the film entirely, of course.

While his film taste is indiscriminate and eclectic, Steven Soderbergh's taste in collaborators tends to be monogamous. Both George Clooney and Matt Damon and the Oscar-winning director have made six pictures together (and Damon has one more collaboration in the works), Michael Douglas and Benico Del Toro have two films a piece with the filmmaker and one new muse is emerging: Channing Tatum.

In the relatively ridiculous new procedural/mystery "Son of No One," Channing Tatum, as a mustachioed police officer married to Katie Holmes (and looking after an epileptic daughter), is sent taunting letters and anonymous text messages alluding to a violent incident from his past. (The movie is set way back in 2002 which is why he doesn't receive cryptic emails too. Because no one used email in 2002 apparently). You can tell how terribly we're supposed to take the threats because of all the shaky shots of Tatum flipping open his ancient cell phone, the scenes shot in sickly shades of blue and green. Except that instead of coming across as suspenseful or menacing, it's just silly and laughable, like something out of a teen slasher movie or ABC Family series, lacking anything approximating weight or gravitas.

While Anchor Bay Nab Starry Channing Tatum-Led Ensemble Drama 'Ten Year'For a while, we were starting to wonder if we'd dreamed the Will Ferrell comedy "Casa De Mi Padre." On almost no one's radar before the start of this year, a surprise trailer for the project, a Spanish-language film co-starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, debuted back in the spring, but nothing's been heard from the film since, and we had to double check our archives to make sure it was a real thing, and not something that we'd imagined after a night with too many telenovelas and too much meth.
