Seen on screens in the fall, Tatum portrayed wrestler Mark Schultz in the critically acclaimed drama Foxcatcher, co-starring Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo.

In 2015, Tatum returned to his very popular role as a male stripper in the sequel Magic Mike XXL. That year, he also starred in the sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending, and had a supporting part in the Quentin Tarantino Western The Hateful Eight.

Remaining busy with his usual array of roles, Tatum featured prominently in the Coen brothers’ Hail, Caesar! (2016), reunited with Soderbergh for the heist comedy Logan Lucky (2017) and returned to voice work for The Lego Batman Movie (2017) and Smallfoot (2018).
