Trailer Watch: Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Chris Pratt and more in 10 Years

After his fantastically funny turn 21 Jump Street, I was hoping to see Channing Tatum do more comedy, and the trailer for 10 Years looks like it will be pretty funny — but I was surprised that it seems to have a little depth, too, not to mention a really strong supporting cast.

You can get the gist of the story from the trailer, of course, or read the official synopsis:

Jake (Channing Tatum) is deeply in love with his girlfriend (Jenna Dewan-Tatum, his real-life wife and Step Up co-lead), ready to propose – until he runs into his high school flame (Rosario Dawson) for the first time in ten years. Jake’s friend Cully (Chris Pratt) married his cheerleader girlfriend, and has been looking forward to the reunion so he can finally apologize to all the classmates he bullied in high school. However, after a few too many drinks, the jock-turned-family man ends up reverting back to his old ways instead. Meanwhile, longtime rivals Marty and A.J (Justin Long and Max Minghella) spend the night still trying to one-up each other to impress the coolest girl in class (Lynn Collins), who now has a secret. The famous one of the group, Reeves (Drive‘s Oscar Isaac), is now a well-known musician, but is still too shy to talk to the high school crush (Kate Mara) who inspired his one hit wonder.

10 Years was written and directed by Jamie Linden (We Are Marshall). Aubrey Plaza, Scott Porter, Brian Geraghty, Aaron Yoo, Eiko Nijo and Nick Zano round out the cast. The film is out in theaters on September 14, 2012.

Trailer Watch: George Clooney’s The Ides of March

Via Yahoo! Movies comes the trailer for writer, director and star George Clooney’s The Ides of March, an adaptation of the Beau Willimon play Farragut North. Set in “the last days before a heavily contested Ohio presidential primary, an up-and-coming campaign press secretary (Ryan Gosling) finds himself involved in a political scandal that threatens to upend his candidate’s shot at the presidency.” (Clooney plays the candidate, naturally.)

Not only do we have two of the best leading men in Hollywood together for (I think) the first time, but what a supporting cast! Marisa Tomei, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Evan Rachel Wood, and Jeffrey Wright?! I’d like to buy that casting director a drink.

The last time Clooney got political, we got the fantastic Good Night, and Good Luck. And while the trailer doesn’t necessarily hint at a whole lot of political substance in the film, I’d be surprised if there wasn’t more than the usual toothless, Hollywood fluff on the subject. (Wag the Dog, I’m looking at you. Bad dog.) In any case, Clooney is a solid director and writes terrific dialogue. This should be good.

Watch for it this October 7th.
