This week, movie site ReelzChannel.com picked Channing Tatum as one of their 10 Breakout Stars of 2009. Channing was chosen for his upcoming roles in 'G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra', 'Public Enemies', and 'Fighting', and you can find ReelzChannel.com's remaining picks below, which include the 9 other actors, writers, directors, films, and/or film genres we should all be on the lookout for in 2009:
- Jody Hill (Writer/Director of 'Observe and Report' with Seth Rogen, Anna Faris, and Michael Pena)
- Chris Pine ('Star Trek')
- 3D Movies ('Avatar', 'Monsters vs. Alien', 'A Christmas Carol', 'Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience')
- Emma Roberts ('Hotel for Dogs', 'The Winning Season', 'Wild Child')
- Saoirse Ronan ('The Lovely Bones')
- Anime/Manga Movies ('Dragonball', 'Astro Boy', 'Ninja Assassin')
- Rian Johnson ('Brothers Bloom')
- Ayelet Zurer ('Angels & Demons')
- Jeffrey Dean Morgan ('Watchmen')
I also wanted to let fans know that the official website for 'G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra' has made a small change this week too. They have updated the official logo on the place-holder site, and fans can now quickly sign up for future updates from the film. You can CLICK HERE to register.
Finally, even though 'G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra' will not be released until August 7, 2009 here in the US, fans are chomping at the bit for a trailer. Previously, I mentioned there was a good chance that we would see the first teaser/trailer for this film during the next Super Bowl.
Variety.com is now confirming that fans can expect to see not only 'G.I. Joe's trailer during the Super Bowl XLIII telecast, but we'll also get to watch trailers for other high-profile 2009 titles like Paramount’s 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' and 'Star Trek', Sony’s 'Angels and Demons', DreamWorks Animation’s 'Monsters vs. Aliens', Universal’s 'Land of the Lost' and 'Fast & Furious', and Pixar's 'Up'.
The movie trailers will in almost all cases show off never-before-seen footage from the films, and the football game that is estimated to attract close to 100 million viewers from around the world, is a perfect opportunity for many of the summer tentpoles to make their big reveal.
The 2009 Super Bowl will be broadcast in the US on NBC on February 1st, 2009, and will also be broadcast in the UK from 10pm GMT on Sky Sports and BBC One.
In addition to Channing Tatum, fans may get a chance to see clips of Ray Parks, Sienna Miller, Rachel Nichols, Said Taghmaoui, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Marlon Wayans, Dennis Quiad, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Arnold Vosloo, Karolina Isela Kurkov, Byung Hun Lee and Christopher Eccleston in 'G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra's teaser trailer, so make sure your Tivos are ready!!!
