What The HELL Has GQ Done To Channing Tatum?

Unless this very handsome 32-year-old dropped by the plastic surgeon and asked for “The Joan Rivers with Balls,” I would have to make this GQ cover a leading candidate for Worst Airbrushing Of The Young Century.

Or maybe they couldn’t get Mr. Tatum and photographed his figure at Madame Tussaud’s.

    His head is far too big for his torso. He looks like some sort of oversized/undersized mannequin. Spooooky.

    Awful work. In the current tailspin print media is in, it doesn’t surprise me to see the quality of work going to shit.

  3. christian says:

    Marketing folk think that MAD MEN’s popularity means they don’t suck.

    Are you sure this isn’t Mad Magazine? It looks like Alfred E. Newman as Channing Tatum.

    WTF? He looks like one of the queens that I see at my gym who I feel so sorry for because it’s obvious that they’re getting work done when it’s way too early or even unwarranted. Hopefully this is the work of some photo editor and not how he really looked at the shoot.

    Good catch, DP!

“At a recent screening of Creed, as the familiar fanfare of Bill Conti’s beloved Rocky score signaled the start of the final round of the big fight, the audience burst into spontaneous applause. This was no sneak-preview crowd, primed with free admission and popcorn, but a room full of critics and journalists armored in professional skepticism. A cynic might say that the cheering was a Pavlovian reflex set off by a piece of commercial entertainment in the hands of a skilled, manipulative director. This cynic, however, was too busy choking up and clapping to form the thought.”
A. O. Scott On Creed

The physical object is so banalized nowadays, you have to bring something else. And the audience is completely ready to get that, and want that, voilà. It’s difficult because it’s a lot of work and there are a lot of requirements, but you have to try to be more and more unique; if not, you’re just releasing a DVD in the old way, and even if a title might interest some cinephiles, it won’t be enough regarding the fact that they could see on S-VOD for ten bucks hundreds of movies. So how do you bring this audience who’s continuing following you because they have the same feeling of cinephilia to acquire what you’re releasing ? And even though we can see of course that the 3000-limited-edition of Body Double is to be able to go out-of-print very quickly, at the same time it will increase interest on the title itself.
