Only can director Steven Soderbergh get die-hard film buffs excited for a film about male stripping, starring Channing Tatum. I know most of the ladies are excited to see Magic Mike, but I’ve never seen such a positive reaction come from the online community for a film that, if in the hands of anyone else, would be another shirtless adventure that’s sole purpose is to entertain the ladies and make a few bucks while doing so.
Magic Mike looks like something a lot more complex than that and even though this new clip (via MTV) doesn’t show much of that complexity. I’m still holding out until I see the final product.
The sparkling new poster (see above) reiterates the male stripping and the new clip below reveals the involvement of wrestling superstar Kevin Nash, which made me giggle uncontrollably.
Starring alongside Tatum is Alex Pettyfer, Cody Horn and Matthew McConaughey.
The film opens up on June 29th, 2012.
