DEAL OF THE DAY: Watch Channing Tatum's 'Stop-Loss' Early at FREE Screenings Around the US

Thanks to Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan and CTU reader Ally from Illinois, we now have over 400 new icons from Channing's upcoming war drama 'Stop-Loss'.

With Ally's permission, I'm in the process of adding the icons to the Icon Set in the Channing Tatum Unwrapped Photo Gallery. Until I get them all in there, you can click on the image to left to download the new icons from the trailers and interviews that have been released for the film.

As I had mentioned before, 'Stop-Loss' director Kimberly Peirce will start her second tour around the country to promote the film prior to it's March 28, 2008 US release date. Below you will find information on an upcoming free screening in Chicago:

Kimberly Peirce, a U of C alumna (AB’90) and director of BOYS DON'T CRY, will present a screening of her new film STOP-LOSS. She will take questions following the screening in a Q&A session moderated by Lauren Berlant, professor of Gender Studies.

A war film produced by MTV Films, STOP-LOSS tells the story of a young Iraq war vet (Ryan Phillippe) whose return to civilian life in his hometown is disrupted by a stop-loss order from the Army that forces him to decide whether to obey orders and return to combat - or make another decision and live with the consequences.

Kimberly Peirce's
first publicity/press/college tour took her to Arizona, San Francisco, Colorado, NY, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Though the next tour schedule has not been finalized, Kimberly says the second tour will be going to Seattle, San Diego, Miami, Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, Houston, Dallas, Austin, LA, Boston, Philadelphia, and even more cities prior to March 28th believe it or not. Needless-to-say, Kimberly is going to be one busy woman as the movie's release date approaches.

I'm extremely excited, because I'm officially registered to go to the Austin-based South by Southwest Film Festival in March where I will get to see both 'Stop-Loss' and 'Battle in Seattle', but I will definitely make sure to attend whatever event the film has here in Houston too, in addition to seeing the film again when it has its theatrical release.

When the tour is finalized, Kimberly says the tour schedule should be posted on the 'Stop-Loss' official site. So stay tuned and I'll keep you all posted on any new free screenings.
