I know you're all waiting on my LA trip recap, and I promise to give it to you this weekend. In the meantime, I have some other Channing Tatum news that I want to share...
Channing Tatum's film 'Battle in Seattle' is currently scheduled for a limited release in the US, and they are still working on getting international distribution deals overseas.
The film will definitely be premiering in various cities across this country on September 19, 2008, but before that, the film is going to throw it's proverbial hat into the political ring at this year's Impact Film Festival
The Impact Film Festival (IFF) is a four-day event held during the 2008 Democratic and Republican Conventions in Denver and Minneapolis. IFF will showcase two to three socially-themed documentary and dramatic films per day and feature panel discussions with an engaging mix of filmmakers, entertainers, lawmakers and other civic leaders.
These screenings are open to Convention attendees, delegates and a limited number of the public, on a first-come, first-served basis and are free to anyone who attends. To make a reservation for a particular screening, click on the appropriate links below:

The film takes an in-depth look at the five days that rocked the world in 1999 as tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the World Trade Organization. What began as a peaceful protest intended to stop the WTO talks quickly escalated into a full-scale riot and eventual State of Emergency that squared off peaceful and unarmed protestors against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard.
