The new trailer is out for the semi autobiographical stripper film about the early career of Channing Tatum and his all-star cast of Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and more! The film also stars Joe Manganiello, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Cody Horn and Adam Rodriguez and it is directed by Steven Soderbergh. It also qualifies as the first movie about male strippers that I’ve ever had any interest in seeing.
To a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family, Magic Mike (Tatum) seems like the perfect role model: he’s got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. What’s his secret? He’s a male stripper, and when the kid dives headlong into Magic Mike’s world, his mad dancing skills and hunger for excitement make for an unforgettable summer.
Sexy, funny and shocking, this film is a hedonistic thrill ride with a powerful undertow. A razor sharp cast – led by top liner Channing Tatum in a career-defining turn as the titular Magic Mike devours the up-to-the moment freight train of a script, and the result will be relentlessly entertaining and sure to be one of the most talked about films of the year…… and let’s not forget the price-of-admission dancing sequences…
