In case you haven't heard, 2012 is the year of Channing Tatum. He kicked ass in "Haywire," broke hearts in "The Vow," busted guts in "21 Jump Street," all in one year. For his latest trick, Tatum will get naked… and you can get your first taste of his strip tease tonight thanks to our MTV Sneak Peek Week presentation of "Magic Mike."

Like "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "That's My Boy" the last two nights, Sneak Peek Week continues tonight with "Magic Mike." Our very own Josh Horowitz will be live on MTV at 11 p.m. ET with Tatum, his co-star Matthew McConaughey and producer/screenwriter Reid Carolin to premiere an exclusive clip from the Steven Soderbergh stripper flick, and they'll take the conversation online for a 30-minute Q&A right after. You can follow all the action on Twitter using the hash-tag #MTVSneak.

If that's not enough "Magic Mike" goodness for you, make sure to tune into the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night (June 3). You won't be disappointed.

Few people out there would actively go out of their way to declare themselves the greatest dirtbag of the year. Then again, few people are Oliver Cooper.

The "Project X" breakout star is one of five nominees for the inaugural Best On-Screen Dirtbag award at the MTV Movie Awards this year. He's also the only one of the nominees doing everything he possibly can to convince the voting masses that he's the one destined for Golden Popcorn glory. In his latest campaign video, Cooper calls out Best On-Screen Dirtbag frontrunner Bryce Dallas Howard, saying that "the prettiest racist that [critics] have ever seen" would easily win an award for Best On-Screen Racist… but when it comes to the Dirtbag department, Cooper feels it's his "Project X" character Costa that deserves the win.

I'll admit it: I'm a bit heartbroken by the new "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" release date. In case you're late to the news, the second "G.I. Joe" flick has been pushed back from its original June 29 release date, now scheduled to arrive on land, sea and air on March 29, 2013. That's a full nine months later than it was supposed to hit. It's tough news to swallow for "Joe" fans far and wide, but leading man Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is staying positive.


Johnson took to Twitter to confirm the news of the new "Joe" release date, writing: "Commitment to make GI JOE a massive world event just got bigger. New release 3/29/13. Rock + Ass kickins + 3D = #AwwwwS---." He also confirmed reports that the film's planned 3-D conversion will require reshoots; according to Johnson, the Paramount team is "designing new scenes to enhance 3D."

The road to "Fury Road" has been a long, frustrating and confusing one. The fourth "Mad Max" film has long been talked about, vehicles and other set pieces have been constructed, and numerous A-list actors including Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron have been hired… but beyond that, very little has been done in the way of actually shooting the movie.

That might change very, very soon, if Theron is to be believed. MTV News spoke with the Oscar winner at the "Snow White and the Huntsman" press junket in London earlier this month, and she revealed that "Mad Max" will finally go before cameras in early June.

"You want some inside scoop? Start date: June 2," Theron told us, following up the breaking news by knocking on wood.

"Pacific Rim" has so many of my favorite things. It's a Guillermo del Toro monster movie. It's a callback to Kaiju and anime culture. It stars actors from three of my all-time favorite shows: Charlie Hunnam of "Sons of Anarchy," Charlie Day of "Always Sunny," and Idris Elba of "The Wire" (bonus points for "Luther"). I do not need to know anything else to guarantee my attendance on opening day.

That said, I won't say no to reading the "Pacific Rim" plot synopsis, which only serves to sell the awesome-sounding movie even further. Check out the full synopsis and Legendary Pictures press release after the jump!

At long last, the end of the world is upon us! Not literally, no, but the fan-favorite trio behind "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" — Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright — are finally set to join forces again for "The World's End," their latest genre-bending picture about five old friends who reunite to replicate an epic pub crawl from their boyhood; calamity and hilarity ensue.

That's about all we know of "World's End," which is supposedly the third and final act in Wright, Pegg and Frost's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy. But even if this is the end of the fan-dubbed Blood and Ice Cream movies, it won't be the last time the trio works together again.

Everyone has a Bill Murray story. Come on, you know it's true: you have a friend of a friend who encountered Murray in a public bathroom, found himself on the receiving end of a headlock, and watched in horror as Murray explained, "Tell this to everyone, they'll never believe you." Without question, Murray's pranks, antics and unpredictable nature have become legendary at this point.

Well, we're very pleased to contribute some video evidence to the ongoing saga of super strange Bill Murray happenings. During an MTV News interview with Wes Anderson at the Cannes Film Festival, a special ghost-busting guest — one guess as to who — crashed our interview to sing the praises of the "Moonrise Kingdom" director. It's… an amazing event. Watch it in the video above and keep reading for Murray's thoughts on his frequent collaborator.

You're never too old for "Lethal Weapon." Too young, sure, but never too old, even if Riggs and Murtaugh are a bit past their prime these days.

Still, you can revisit the glory days of the Mel Gibson and Danny Glover-starring action franchise with the "Lethal Weapon Collection," the new Blu-ray set that hits shelves today (May 22). We've got an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the Blu-ray all about the relationship between Riggs and Murtaugh, and why they were such a groundbreaking action duo for their time.

"Breaking Bad" fans, start shaving your heads and break out the blue stuff (don't really do that), because the grand return of Heisenberg finally has a date.

The first portion of the final season of "Breaking Bad" will begin on July 15 at 10/9 p.m. central, TV Line reports. Note that that's "the first portion" only; the sixteen-episode final season will be split into two chunks of eight, meaning the "Bad" times won't be fully resolved until the summer of 2013. That's more than fine by me.

AMC also announced the return date for "Hell on Wheels," its gritty Western that debuted last fall. The series will kick off its ten-episode second season on August 12.

It is said that there can only be one. To that end, it looks like "the one" for "Highlander" is none other than cocky flyboy Hal Jordan himself... better known to the world as Ryan Reynolds.

Variety reported on Friday that Reynolds is in talks with Summit Entertainment to take on the lead role in their upcoming "Highlander" reboot, which will be directed by "Intruders" and "28 Weeks Later" filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. No deal has been worked out yet, with "insiders" suggesting that "Reynolds is weighing other offers and [he] could still pursue another project."
