First Look at Steven Soderbergh's Male Stripper Film MAGIC MIKE
Here's our first look at Steven Soderbergh's male stripper film Magic Mike, which gives us our first look at Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, and a shirtless Matthew McConaughey as male strippers.
As much as I love the films that Soderbergh makes, as of right now I have no interest at all in seeing this movie. The trailer will have to sell me on it, as this movie looks like it will be more targeted to the ladies.
The script was written by Reid Carolin and was inspired by real-life story of Tatum's early career as a male stripper. Tatum plays the title character, "who schools a young dancer (Pettyfer) in how to hustle on and off the stage. It's a wild summer of dancing, partying, and women. The inspiration was Channing's own experiences as a stripper when he was 19." McConaughey plays Dallas, a former stripper who owns the club where the two perform. Tatum and Nick Wechsler are producing with Gregory Jacobs and Carolin.
The film also stars Matt Bomer, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, and Cody Horn and is set to hit theaters on June 29th, 2012.
