Rachel McAdams & Channing Tatum’s Munich photo call: adorable or boring?

These are new photos of Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum in Munich, Germany, where I assume they were doing some kind of photo call for The Vow. Lately, more and more films have been doing this, and I kind of hate it – the film promotion begins in Europe, with a series of photo calls and premieres, all before the American premiere. Unless the actor or actress is a huge international celebrity, or the film is some hugely expensive potential blockbuster, I don’t understand why Munich gets the photo call before New York City. Can anyone explain this? It’s not even like Rachel or Channing are well-known outside of Canada and the US, either. Weird.

By the way, Rachel’s lace dress is Collette Dinnigan. I don’t hate the dress, but I really think Rachel has some issues with her color choices. She doesn’t realize when certain shades wash her out, and she’s still choosing colors like she’s a brunette – which she’s not anymore, since she’s obsessed with being a blonde these days, for whatever reason.

As for Channing and Rachel, together in The Vow… I really don’t want to see the film. But I know some ladies do. Go ahead, it’s for you. You’re supposed to want to see it so you can weep and be overcome by the sappy love story. Here’s the trailer again:

    He’s too much of a blokhead to really play the caring husband who lost his wife’s brain kind of guy. He seems like the kind of guy who is shot in the opening scene of a war movie.

  2. MissM says:

    OMG…It’s just like “the Notebook”….I soooooo WANT to see this…I just can’t help it!!!

  3. Abby says:

    thanks for some Channing/Rachel with my friday morning coffee! Love.

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I can’t believe people will pay the price of a movie ticket to see this garbage. I love Rachel but we need to rescue her from the love story/rom-com Vortex of Death.

  5. Jezi says:

    I kinda want to see it *hangs head in shame*.

    I am in love with Channing. I love how he treats his wife and so I am not turned off by his roles in any movie because of his outside character. I always have loved Rachel McAdams. So with that being said, yes I will see it. My husband told me he will not be accompanying me though :(

    • Abby says:

      I totally agree. He seems like such a sweetheart. I’m not ashamed of having a crush on him, even though I don’t think he’s a great actor. And I love her. I did, however, get my husband to agree to go see this with me on Valentine’s. :-)

      • Jezi says:

        Aaawww you’re lucky! I was given a “No Way!!” on that movie as well. He told me to go see it with my bff. Ha!

      • Maria says:

        I don’t want to go with my boyfriend. All he does is moan and roll his eyes at the parts he thinks are lame and then tell me how unrealistic the movie is afterwards. So I avoid taking silly boys to movies like this, they fail to appreciate the movie.

        My boyfriend surprised me with tickets for the movie New Years Eve because he was trying to be a good boyfriend. What a waste of a movie – I was rolling my eyes and finding it difficult to sit through the terrible movie.

      • Shay Kay says:

        Since we’re in confessional I’ll admit that I love Charming Potato too! I don’t care if he’s not great actor because I love that he seems to be a great human being….the body on this guy isn’t hurting my opinion of him either.

    • DreamyK says:

      Did you see him do that parking lot dance in Step Up 2? Holy cow. Can’t wait for his stripper movie Magic Mike. Ridiculously hot.

      Here’s the youtube of Channing dancing:

    I think she looks great.

  7. Anna says:

    She looks great but the dress does wash her out a little. Who cares though, it’s just a photo call.

  8. helvetica says:

    Love her dress, she looks very pretty

  9. Roxy750 says:

    Oh I so want to see it!! And Rachel is one of my favorites b/c she is so pretty. They would be hot together.

  10. GoodCapon says:

    I can’t believe Rachel is 33! Does she bathe in milk or something?

  11. Margo says:

    The reason he was cast was because he looked very similar to the real life guy that he’s supposed to be portraying, Kit Carpenter. I want to see this because it’s based on a true story and even though I love Rachel, I kind of wish she wouldn’t do these types of movies anymore.

  12. Franny says:

    also, I always like to laugh about how movie titles are translated into other languages. The vow becomes “The always love” in German.

  13. Isa says:

    I love Channing Tatum. There, i said it.

  14. Maria says:

    I can’t get into Channing because everytime I see him, all I think of is his character in Step Up. I can’t see the trailer (stupid computer) but I will definitely see this movie.

    I love Rachel McAdams – really wish she has a better career.

  15. Maria says:

    He has weird ears. They look super pale and are sticking out. Or is just the way the pic was taken.

  16. taxi says:

    He’s standing so far away from her that his arm-around-her-waist pose is odd.

    Love her. She’s always good. He’s very wooden.

  17. grace says:

    She’s so adorable. I’d go to see her in anything. (I’m English and we know who Rachel is by the way).

  18. original sandy says:

    i love Rachael, i too wishes her career was bigger, maybe get that guy huvann? as her mgt. he has done wonders for people with no talent, just saying, i don’t know channing? as a actor,..so i will leave it at that, i will see the movie because Rachael is in so few lately. and i think she looks ok, but agree, more color would be nice.

  19. nanster says:

    Rachel’s so cute – loved her in “The Notebook”. Channing Tatum is very attractive, but he always looks devoid of emotion.

  20. Ness says:

    Aw! They’re both so cute! I think she looks great.

  21. JT says:

    The dress would be great if it had just a splash of colour, like if the belt was red rather than black, something to give it some life.

    “…the film promotion begins in Europe, with a series of photo calls and premieres, all before the American premiere…Can anyone explain this? It’s not even like Rachel or Channing are well-known outside of Canada and the US, either.”

    Uh…looks like you’ve already answered your own question.

  22. Sophie says:

    She is so gorgeous. If I could look like any celebrity, I would want to look like her. Especially the way she looked in The Notebook, when she was extra skinny. (Yes, I’ve bought in to the size zero ideal. Sue me.)

  23. Sophie says:

    He’s no Ryan Gosling. The Notebook was tolerable because the sappy plot was balanced by good acting. Not the case for this one…

  24. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    It will be the first of three movies I will pay to see this year. Twilizzle being number two and if aBrangie film comes out, I’ll go see that. I like cheesy sappy movies that are romantic since I’m not like that at all in my own personality.

    My husband saw the Notebook with me and I always made him watch A Walk To Remember. I had to promise him extra sexy times anytime I went near Nicholas Sparks and see Transformers so he could drool over Michael’s Bay “masterpiece of special effects” I’m pretty sure that’s how my second son was conceived that summer. LOL.

  25. jeannine says:

    um…i’m german and i’d say people over here have a pretty good idea who both of them are.

  26. Camille (The original) says:

    That movie looks awful, I have no desire to see it at all. They appear to have NO screen chemistry at all.

    Rachel is adorable and such a gorgeous girl, but she always seems to wear awful stuff when she does these red carpet appearances. I am beginning to think she can’t dress to save herself, or she just needs a new stylist.
    I too wish she had a bigger career. She’s a great little actress and so likeable.

    Channing is just so majorly vanilla and boring to me. He does nothing for me looks wise and I think he is an awful and very wooden actor whenever I have happened to catch him in something when flicking through TV channels. He makes me feel like …zzzzzzz..
