I think it’s safe to say that a lot of gay men and straight women are looking forward to Magic Mike, if only because Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew Bomer, Matthew McConaughey and more play strippers! The trailer suggests there’s some sort of romance type plot too, but I don’t think anyone actually cares about that, or that much admired director Steven Soderbergh is behind the camera. Nope, they just want the buff blokes to get their kit off! Partly based on Tatum’s experiences as a young male stripper, the film sees him mentoring a newbie (Pettyfer) and apparently having romantic problems. The film hits UK cinemas July 13th.
A couple of new images have emerged from Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming Magic Mike. While the film has a plot, about a new up and comer (Alex Pettyfer) being mentored by an old hand (Channing Tatum), nobody cares about that. Nope, the only thing anyone is interested in (or at least gay men and straight women are interested in), is that Tatum, Pettyfer, Mathew Bomer, Matthew McConaughey, Adam Rodriguez and more all play male strippers in the film! It’s even looseply based on Tatum’s real-life experiences as a young man paid to take his togs off.
Male strippers are getting the Hollywood treatment in a big way this summer with Magic Mike, based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a young man who took his clothes off for cash and directed by Steven Soderbergh. Now EW has debuted two new still from the movie, which should make gay men and straight women all kinds of happy.
The pic above features Channing Tatum and Matthew Bomer, while the one below has Tatum and Alex Pattyfer. The film stars Tatum as Mike, an experienced stripper who takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. Matthew McConaughey, plays a slightly older stripper who now owns his own club. It’s due out in June.
If you like male celebrity skin, you’re gonna be happy with Magic Mike, which sees the likes of Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey and Matthew Bomer playing strippers, all based on Tatum’s days as a young man taking his clothes off for cash!
Warner has released the first image from the Steven Soderbergh movie, which sees Tatum as Mike, an experienced stripper who takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. McConaughey, who’s looking oddly patriotic in the image above, plays a slightly older stripper who now owns his own club. It’s due out in June.
