Movie PosterUSA Today published an article this week that featured the upcoming animated comedy The Book of Life, which will be released in theaters in October.

G.I. Joe star Channing Tatum has played his share of war heroes, but never one as animated or macho as his mustachioed Joaquin in the fantastical The Book of Life.

The wild, 3-D animated tale (due out Oct. 17) features a love triangle among three childhood friends, Manolo (voice by Diego Luna), Maria (Zoe Saldana) and Tatum's Joaquin, who are stirred up after the unpredictable gods wager on which man will win Maria's heart.

"Manolo and my character Joaquin were best friends, we were all like the Three Musketeers," says Tatum, discussing his first major animated role. "But craziness ensues as the gods wager. Things happen that people won't expect, I can guarantee that."
