I don’t know if I really HAVE to ask whether Channing Tatum’s new look is hot or not, because GAH! Just LOOK at it, Bettys! Channing, what HAPPENED?! The hair! It is so BLOND! The SCRUFF! And what is going on with your EARS?? Yikes!!!
At least we can take comfort in the fact that he (probably) won’t stay like this forever: According to People, it’s for his next film, Jupiter Ascending. Starring Mila Kunis as the titular Jupiter, the sci-fi flick takes place in a universe where humans (like Jupiter) are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder. Channing plays Caine, a warrior sent by the Queen of the Universe to kill Jupiter—because, as he tells her, the stars were pointing to an extraordinary event on the night she was born. Could she be a threat to the Queen of the Universe’s rule—or even the universe’s next leader? Maaaaaybe!
Caine, by the way, is described in his character breakdown as “a defective genetic splice, half-albino and with both wolf and human DNA.” I don’t know about you, Bettys, but I just want to have been in the room when they were dreaming THAT one up. The whole thing sounds a little cheesy; then again, it’s being written, directed, and produced by the Wachowskis, so whatever it ends up being, it’ll probably look absolutely CRAZY on the big screen. Eddie Redmayne and Sean Bean are both appearing in it, as well. Yum.
Jupiter Ascending has been shooting since June (that’s why baby Everly was born in London); it’s due to hit cinemas next summer.
Tell us: Are you as horrified by Channing’s new look as we are?
