There are countless reasons why we all love Channing Tatum and most of them start with Step Up and end with that flippin' glorious tap dancing sequence in Hail, Caesar! (which you can watch in the clip below, you're welcome). Thankfully, though, that "end" is but a holding point, for Tatum has a number of movies in the pipeline that will undoubtably continue to add magical moments to his back catalogue.

So, for your pleasure, we've delved into his IMDb page to bring you a roundup of everything you can expect from the mighty Tatum over the next year or two. Enjoy!

1. 'Gambit'

  • Character: Remy LeBeau / Gambit
  • Who else stars? Unknown
  • What's it about: Part of the Marvel gang, Gambit belongs to the X-Men and holds the ability to wield kinetic energy, enabling him pull mad tricks like charging playing cards and use them as explosive projectiles.
  • Why you should watch: Gambit is portrayed as a bit of a "ladies man," a role Tatum has nailed in various movies to date — I'm looking at you again, Step Up — and additionally he'll have to hone a ragin' Cajun accent, which I for one, cannot wait to hear.
  • Release date: 2017

2. 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'

  • Character: Unknown
  • Who else stars? Taron Egerton, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry
  • What's it about: A sequel to 2015's Kingsman: The Secret Service, this narrative centers around an attack on the Kingsman headquarters and the rise of a new villain whom the characters must work together to defeat or the world is doomed.
  • Why you should watch: Its predecessor was stylish AF, not to mention fun, so hopefully this one will be too!
  • Release date: October 6, 2017

  • Character: Jimmy
  • Who else stars? Riley Keough, Katherine Heigl, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig
  • What's it about: Two hillbilly brothers attempt to pull off a major robbery during a NASCAR race.
  • Why you should watch: The film's director, Steven Soderbergh also helmed Magic Mike, which should be a good enough reason for you. However, if it's not, he also worked on Ocean's Eleven and Thirteen, so he's got this heist bizz down.
  • Release date: October 13, 2017

4. 'MIB 23'

  • Character: Jenko
  • Who else stars? Jonah Hill
  • What's it about: The future is hazy for this potential cinematic clusterfuck that threatens to merge the worlds of Men in Black and the Jump Street franchise — but, as it remains on Channing's IMDb page, on the list it goes! One would assume it'll brim with otherworldly bizarrities and sharp suits.
  • Why you should watch: Action, aliens and Channing Tatum's guns. Bish, bash, bosh.
  • Release date: TBD

5. Untitled Musical Comedy

  • Character: Unknown
  • Who else stars? Joseph Gordon-Levitt
  • What's it about: Details are thin on the ground but rumors describe this project as an R-rated musical comedy featuring two pilots — Levitt and Tatum, one would assume — on a misadventure.
  • Why you should watch: If you've seen Hail! Caesar, you'll know Tatum can tap dance like a boss while rocking a tight military uniform — hopefully this will be much of the same noise.
  • Release date: TBD
