Plus Tatum isn't that hot anymore. White House Down bombed.
I'm not sure White House Down bombing was really his or Jamie Foxx's fault, it was a couple of poor studio decisions that doomed it IMO - it was terribly placed within the calender year by coming out at the end of June in the middle of blockbuster season, plus Olympus Has Fallen had already come out 3 months before. White House Down isn't a great movie by any means, but it's a really good Redbox movie, perfect popcorn flick & it makes for a fun drinking game
In a lot of ways, it's a throwback to 80s action movies with a some good comedic moments due to the chemistry of Tatum & Foxx.
I have yet to see Magic Mike but I've heard that Tatum is actually very good in the role. He was hilarious in 21 Jump Street too, so I wouldn't completely write off Tatum as Gambit.
