I have a couple of important news items to share with you all today, so make sure you read this post in it's entirety...
Although they are still adding features, Channing Tatum's upcoming action film 'Fighting', which hits US and Canadian theaters on April 24th, just released a completely new and interactive official site which is jam-packed with the following features:
- General Film Info (Synopsis, Production Notes - Coming Soon)
- Cast & Crew Profiles - Coming Soon
- Downloads (Wallpapers, AIM Icons, Screensavers)
- Video (Trailers, TV spots - Coming Soon, Film Clips - Coming Soon)
- Widget for Social Networking Sites like Myspace, Facebook, ect.
- 'Fighting's Interactive Map of New York City - Coming Soon
I have added all of the new wallpapers and AIM icons to the Channing Tatum Unwrapped Photo Gallery. You can check them out below or CLICK HERE to download them.
I think the new site looks awesome, and I really like how it shows tons of clips from the film on every page. It's now one of my favorite sites from Channing's films, so I hope you all check it out!!!
I also have some even BIGGER news that I can officially announce to CTU readers...
As you may or may not know, I was lucky enough to visit the New York City set of 'Fighting' in 2007, and from that day, I hoped and prayed that I would somehow be able to attend the premiere when the movie was released.
I have now gotten official confirmation that Universal Pictures is not only going to allow me to report from next month's New York-only premiere for 'Fighting', but I will also be shadowing Channing through part of the Los Angeles press junket next week where he will be promoting the film to the media!!!
For those who don't know, a press junket is when interviewers all come on the same day to a certain place to interview the star (or sometimes stars) of a film. It's basically a day where Channing and other actors from 'Fighting' will have a ton of back to back interviews to help the media learn more about the movie.
Normally, when I go on these kind of trips, you all have to wait until I return to hear about the experience. I decided to tweak that process a bit this year, and I hope you all like the idea as much as I do...
My goal is to give you all an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at a press junket and a premiere REAL-TIME!!! To do that, I will be live-blogging news and photos via Channing Tatum's official Twitter at both of the events.
I may even use a cool new tool called BubbleTweet to send you all video from the events if I have time. You can CLICK HERE to see an example of what I'm talking about. I will also recap my trips in traditional blog posts when I return to give you all of the details that I could not share on Twitter.
I know what you're thinking. Why does Q get to have all of the fun? Well, I want you all to be a part of my trip too. If you're a member of the Channing Tatum Unwrapped Fan Club and would like me to ask Channing a question for you at the junket, then here's what you do...
