Channing Tatum / MAGIC MIKE Trailer

Magic Mike male stripper movie Steven Soderbergh
Magic Mike: the “male stripper movie"

Shirtless Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, and Matthew McConaughey are featured in the red-band Magic Mike trailer. (Please scroll down.) Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) directed this (romantic?) comedy about strippers. Yeah, male strippers. But is the “male” qualifier really necessary? Talk about (anti-male) sexism

Now, the red-band Magic Mike trailer shows more chest and ass than its tamer green-band trailer. (But no penises. Well, unless … Take a good look at the photo above.) Anyhow, much like its predecessor, this latest Magic Mike trailer doesn't make stripping look arousing at all – whether or not you're into muscular, fully shaved, hip-swishing guys. Matthew McConaughey, at least, seems to be having a good time.

Written by Reid Carolin, Magic Mike tells the story of a successful stripper (Channing Tatum) who becomes the mentor of a newcomer (Alex Pettyfer). the film is purportedly inspired by Channing Tatum's past life as a stripper.

Also in the Magic Mike cast: Adam Rodriguez, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Olivia Munn, Mircea Monroe, Riley Keough, and Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey. Magic Mike opens June 29.
