Actor Channing Tatum reveals when you can watch Gambit in cinema

Actor Channing Tatum, who is set to star in the upcoming Fox film Gambit, has revealed the release date for the film's cinema release in a recent tweet.

According to Tatum, the new X-Men flick will release on Oct. 7, 2016. Taking to Twitter, the actor leaked the information writing: "How do you say Octber 7, 2016 in Cajun?" Fox Films has since confirmed this was in reference to the Gambit film.

Gambit is Marvel Comics' card-throwing, kinetic energy-controlling son of Louisiana. It was only in 2014 that Tatum was revealed as the lead to a solo film based on the character, which Fox had initially dated for 2018. A script has been written by writer Josh Zetumer based on a treatment by X-Men writer Chris Claremont.
