Our over-excitement about Magic Mike continues as just a day after we posted the new poster for the movie comes a new clip/trailer, which sees the likes of Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey stripping to the rather camp tune of It’s Raining Men.
It is great that they’re advertising this to gay men and straight women in the same way they usually market films full of scantily clad women to straight men. Normally with this sort of film they play down the men as sex objects angle, but here they’re going full bore with it!
Here’s the synopsis, ‘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…’ It hits UK cinemas July 11th.
