Some potential *spoilers* may abound within this post, fyi. Let's revisit the spring of 2012. "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" isn't testing well, and Channing Tatum, who's had two films surpass the $100 million mark domestically ("The Vow," "21 Jump Street") is quickly becoming a star. It's also just one month before "Magic Mike," a starring vehicle for Tatum, will be released and go on to cross the same $100 million threshold and become one of the most profitable movies of the year thanks to an inexpensive budget.  Everyone can feel there will be magic in 'Mike.' Hollywood can taste it. Paramount and 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation" producers come to the brilliant realization, "Hey! We've got Channing Tatum in our movie!"

Last year, when the time came to pick our man of the year, we had a tough choice. Ryan Gosling, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and George Clooney all had excellent, diverse and busy 2011s, and after hours of furious debate, we ended up settling on Michael Fassbender. This year, the choice seemed to us a simple one, albeit shared between two actors who both turned around their image and perception with a string of roles across the last year, culminating in a film that teamed them up to great effect. Yes, it's Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum.

The first two months of the New Year are usually viewed as a dumping ground, but in recent years critical and box office success stories like "Shutter Island" and "Safe House" have shown that it's a quiet frame where genre fare can do tremendously well. That's why we're not worried an iota about Steven Soderbergh's forthcoming "Side Effects," which got the ball rolling a few weeks ago with a pretty fantastic first trailer. And while things are on the down low for the moment, a few more stills from the movie have popped up.

After getting his ass handed to him by Gina Carano in "Haywire," being buds with Jonah Hill in "21 Jump Street" and shaking his money maker in "Magic Mike" in 2012, next year Channing Tatum is coming to save America. "White House Down" will find the President in danger, but only one man can save him...

We're coming near to the end... Steven Soderbergh's cinematic hiatus is imminent, but he's looking to go out with a bang. This summer's "Magic Mike" was not only a big hit, but managed to make a story about male strippers a throwback to character-driven movies of the '70s. And now we have the first trailer for his penultimate film, and third team up with Channing Tatum: "Side Effects." And, yes, it looks great.

An American thriller film by Roland Emmerich, the guy who directed super-sized blockbusters like "Independence Day, " "Godzilla" and "2012" and starring Channing Tatum, "White House Down" might just be the movie of summer 2013 if you're into loud spectacle. Tatum, who has arguably had the best 2012 of any male contemporary thanks to three over-$100 million dollar grossers ("The Vow," "21 Jump Street" and "Magic Mike") stars as a United States Secret Service agent who must rescue the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx) from a paramilitary group that has taken over the White House. Let's guess, he's new and unexperienced (first day on the job?), but somehow he "Die Hard"s it and against all odds and saves the day.

MTV have been busy chatting lately with a lot of celebs, and it seems they've managed to squeak out start dates for a trio of high-profile films including a sequel, a potential sci-fi franchise and a fairy tale reimagining. So let's get to it.

Channing Tatum Wants To Direct Something Small Before Taking On 'Magic Mike 2'

We're sure that someone out there has had a better year than Channing Tatum. An Olympian who won multiple gold medals, for instance. Or someone who won nine figures in some kind of lottery. Or maybe the "Gangnam Style" guy. But in the film world, no one's had a better 2012 than Tatum. Somewhat mocked by many in years gone by, the actor kicked off the year by impressing in Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire," before having three $100 million+ smash hits in five months, in the shape of romantic drama "The Vow," acclaimed comedy "21 Jump Street" and Soderbergh's "Magic Mike," which Tatum also produced, and based on his own life. Wildly different films, but Tatum impressed in each, and has gone from a nearly-man to one of the most in-demand leading men around.

Probably the most pleasant surprise of the year so far, both critically and commercially, has been "Magic Mike." We've made no secret of our love of Steven Soderbergh 'round these parts, but we hadn't connected 100% with anything that he'd made since "Che," and when it was first announced, we weren't sure that a male stripping drama starring Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer was going to change that. But not only did the film turn out to be triumph -- a loose, substantial gem with excellent performances all around -- but also a grand commercial hit, bringing in $113 million domestically on a production budget of only $7 million.
