NEWS FLASH: New Pictures of Channing Tatum, Ryan Phillippe, and Abbie Cornish in 'Stop Loss'

A poster on IMDB asked the following question:

"What kind of name is TATUM?"

Well, I decided to research it on one of those name origin sites and here is what I learned...Channing Matthew Tatum's full name means:

Knowing - Gift of God - Cheerful Bringer of Joy

When I see pictures like the one to the left, I'm thinking Channing's parents hit the nail right on the head when they named him. You may have a hard time reading the rest of the post, because honestly this absolutely channalistic {*} photo of Channing Tatum as Steve Shriver in his upcoming movie 'Stop Loss' is utterly distracting and is one of those photos that has the potential to get a happily married women in some serious trouble.

You think I'm kidding? If I had a locker, this picture would so be in it! ;-D

Channing Tatum's highly-anticipated movie 'Stop Loss' has THANKFULLY released new stills of the movie, and I am happy to say that you will find all of the ultra high quality and never-before-seen stills below.

'Stop Loss' was written and directed by the highly celebrated Kimberly Peirce and boasts a talented cast which includes Ryan Phillippe, Abbie Cornish, Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Timothy Olyphant, Victor Rasuk, and Rob Brown. The movie already has Oscar buzz swarming around it.

Based on a true story adapted for the screen by Peirce, 'Stop Loss' centers on decorated Iraq war hero Sgt. Brandon King (Ryan Phillippe), a soldier who makes a celebrated return to his small Texas hometown following his tour of duty and is called to duty again in Iraq through the military's "stop-loss" procedure. Brandon tries to resume the life he left behind with the help and support of his loving family, and his best friend, Jared (Channing Tatum), who served with Brandon in Iraq.

Alongside their war-time buddies, they try to make peace with civilian life. Then, against Brandon’s will, under a measure called “Stop Loss,” the Army indefinitely extends his enlistment and forces him back to Iraq. This destroys Brandon’s entire world, and sends him to one of the only people he can trust: his childhood friend's fiancee, Michele (Abbie Cornish). Michele becomes Brandon’s confidante and accomplice as he races across the U.S. – a fugitive from justice in the country he fought to protect – in search of a way out of his predicament.

Without further ado, here are the rest of the wonderful stills from Channing's movie 'Stop Loss' showcasing Channing and his co-stars Ryan Phillippe, and Abbie Cornish:

Now once they get the official 'Stop Loss' website up, I will really be one happy fan. Until then, you can click here to read an exclusive CTU interview I did with one of Chan's 'Stop Loss' cast mates and to see behind-the-scenes pictures from the set of the movie.

'Stop Loss' is set to have its theatrical release in the US on March 28, 2008 and in the UK on April 25, 2008.
