Channing Tatum Shirt Off: MAGIC MIKE Trailer

Channing Tatum stripper movie Magic Mike
Channing Tatum stripper movie: Magic Mike

Channing Tatum shirt off – but not pants off – is the star of the Magic Mike trailer. (Please scroll down.) Steven Soderbergh, 49, who has directed everyone from veteran Oscar winner Alec Guinness (Kafka) to porn superstar Sasha Grey (The Girl Experience), handles the sexy (well, one hopes) proceedings in Magic Mike, which co-stars Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey.

Now, the Magic Mike trailer doesn't make stripping look at all arousing. In fact, I found it hard to understand why those women were screaming like mad hens at the mere site of well-toned guys dancing to the tune of "It's Raining Men." But then again, perhaps Magic Mike is about the artificiality of it all: the faux sensuality of strippers and the just as faux enthusiasm of their audiences.

Written by Reid Carolin, Magic Mike follows a successful stripper (Channing Tatum) who becomes the mentor of a newcomer (Alex Pettyfer). Also in the cast: Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Olivia Munn, Mircea Monroe, Riley Keough, and Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey. Magic Mike opens June 29.

Channing Tatum, 32, used to be a stripper/dancer before he became the star of stuff like 21 Jump Street, The Vow, The Dilemma, Dear John, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Some will see this career move as progress; others will surely disagree.
