‘Magic Mike’ trailer: Channing Tatum & some hot guys strip, dance and tease us

The other day, I previewed the Magic Mike trailer – at the time, we only had a short teaser clip, but it was enough to make me excited about how completely awesome this film is going to be. In case you don’t know already, Channing Tatum used to be a stripper. In Tampa. That was, like, his first job as an adult. And he wears his stripping past with a lot of honesty, humility and humor, which always helps. He even used his stripper past as the basis for an idea he had for a film – and this is that film. Steven Soderbergh directed it, for the love of God. And Channing stars with Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer. Honestly, I thought the story was going to be more about those dudes and their stripper lives, so I was unprepared for this trailer and how it seems like it’s all about Channing trying to break free of stripping:

See? It’s like it’s trying to be a love story. Like… Flashdance with more plot. I barely saw Bomer or Manganiello in there. But! I’m not the biggest McConaughey fan AT ALL, but I giggled when he says, “… But I think I see a lot of lawbreakers up in this house” with his twang. I might like The McConaughey again! As for Channing… well, you know I’ve always liked him. Can he carry this film?

    Well the trailer is one big tease….would say more but I think I’m gonna pass out.

  2. Dee says:

    This is going to be the gayest movie, not that there is anything wrong with that.

  3. marie says:

    I will rent this movie strictly for the eye candy, could care less about the plot.

  4. Celebitchy says:

    The plot leaves a little to be desired, judging from the trailer, but it has me really excited and it looks like so much fun! I can’t wait to see this movie!

    • Emily says:

      I said the same thing to my friend, but neither of us were planning on seeing/loving it for the plot.

  5. Sunny says:

    He is smoking hot!Damn,the strippers in my town are busted up:(

  6. GeekLuva says:

    Grrr… when is Channing & Chris Evans gonna do a movie together?!? Hollywood execs call me, see it’s all about this all male nudist colony…

    • Lisa says:

      OMG! Yes!!! Two of the sexiest men. I for one will be seeing Magic Mike. Channing Channing Channing yum yum! Jenna is one lucky girl.

  7. Samigirl says:

    Ahh, little miss will be staying with her daddy while I go see this with my girlfriends, that’s for sure 🙂 It doesn’t look like it’s going to be the greatest movie, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. Plus…I think I would pay more than the cost of a movie ticket to see Matt Bomer take his clothes off.

  8. Marianne says:

    I hope they release another trailer…because this looks more like a rom com and not a dark comedy like I was expecting. And I know Channing is the lead, but I was hoping to at least see a little bit of Matt Bomer. The trailer was just too much Channing.

    I’ll still probably see it though.

  9. sassenach says:

    Why in the HELL do they keep showing this chick in the trailer and not the men!! Who cares about her? I wanna see how Bomer moves..

  10. Lupe says:

    Male Showgirls.

    I loved that movie for its camp, and I will love this one just as much.

  11. rtms says:

    The lead female is FUG! Basically the trailer shows all the good parts with the guys, the movie will be Tatum chatting up the girl.

  12. Gene Parmesan says:

    This Cody Horn chick better wow me cos im underwhelmed. I actually thought this was like a buddy film but only strippers you know? The plot looks so wack. Why is Olivia Munn even in this?? And they mention her but not Bomer? And Kaiser don’t forget my boy Adam Rodruguiez he is in this too

    • Irishae says:

      The “lead” chick has the mouth-breather look going on and it’s not attractive.

  13. kristipistol says:

    It looks better than I expected. Channing is a great dancer and so hot.

  14. Unbeweavable says:

    I can’t wait to watch this movie on mute.

  15. Lindsay says:

    Excuse me while I go change my panties….

  16. Rita says:

    Oh you all middle age women stop acting like teenagers. There is nothing sexy about this crap movie.

    • bondbabe says:

      Well, us “middle aged women” are allowed to have some fun here and there, aren’t we? So kindly refrain from telling us what whe can and can’t do—we aren’t hurting anyone.

      And no, this movie won’t be the most epic blockbuster of the year. And it may be “crap” to you, but it sure as hell has “sexy” aplenty in it. Don’t worry, no one will force you to go see it. You can stay home and watch whatever lame thing YOU want to watch, and we’ll go out and have some fun! ‘K?

    • Happy21 says:

      Well I’m not even close to being middle aged, unless I plan to die at 60.

      Eye candy is eye candy no matter how old you are. What’s the point in living if you can’t enjoy the finer things, such as extremely hot men taking off their clothes?

      As we age are we suppose to supress our excitement at good looking, smokin’ hot men? Now that would just be silly, bury me now!

    • jesstar says:

      Damn Debbie Downer, lighten up!

    • MST says:

      Word, Happy21.

      What’s wrong with being middle-aged? Even we(mature)girls just want to have fun!

      And crap movies are enjoyable sometimes. I absolutely loved one of the worst movies of all time, Catwoman. It’s called ESCAPISM.

    • Irishae says:

      While in theory none of these guys do it for me–I think Channing is as dull as can be and Pettyfer has major douche-face–I couldn’t help but crack a smile watching the trailer. Agree with MST, it’s all about the escapism. It really does look fun and “silly” sexy. Hopefully it doesn’t take itself too seriously and aims more towards Showgirls status.

      Oh, and isn’t Munn well past her expiration date? Just stop already, kthxbai.

  17. hollah says:

    Custom furniture? Haha!

  18. MST says:

    Very tempting eye candy, but I would like it better if they added some caramel or chocolate to the mix. Not that there’s anything wrong with vanilla . . .

    But I was just thinking if a young actress admitted to having been a stripper, her career would be ruined. Pictures of her would be posted all over the internet. Maybe she could do porn but she’d never star in a major release. Why are male strippers considered cute and campy but female exotic dancers are thought of as skanks and hoes? And don’t forget that senator from Massachusetts (his name escapes me) who posed nude? If that was a female she wouldn’t be elected dogcatcher.

    The double standard rears its ugly head again!

  19. Brooke says:

    I don’t like Alex Pettyfer’s figure. Sure he has muscle but I don’t find that curve (his shoulders and posture) appealing at all.

    I prefer Channing Tatum’s physique and he has a straighter countenance and better posture. Does that make sense?

    I don’t like strippers but I like Channing and I can’t wait to see a full trailer. I’ll probably see this!

  20. cham says:

    Needs more Bomer!

    And Alcide please…could really do without this Cody Horn person.

  21. hannah says:

    Why are they trying to sell it as a romcom? Nobody is going to watch the movie for its plot.

  22. grey says:

    I’m trying to keep an open mind b/c Steven Soderbergh is directing this, so I’m hoping this is just a crappy “let’s appease the young fan girls” trailer vs the actual plot content of the movie. I have a soft spot for Channing. He can stand there and I’d still watch his movies.

    • Irishae says:

      I remember when The Village came out and everyone was all “It must be good, it’s a M. Night Shamallamadingdong movie!” Then the Lady in the Water and The Happening…happened. I fear that Soderbergh may be heading in this direction. I guess Baby Mama Drama does that to you.

  23. Camille (The original) says:

    Meh. None of the guys in the film really do anything for me. Charming Potato (Channing T) doesn’t really have that much charisma, is a pretty awful actor from what little I have seen of him and he is such a butterface!
    So unless they show some p*nis or something (lol) then I doubt I’ll waste any time seeing this.

  24. Deliverer Of Deceit says:

    Is 3D & that new fangled D-BOX “rumble” seating too much to ask for?

  25. GoodCapon says:

    I don’t care about Channing or Alex.


  26. d says:

    I dunno. There’s something about Channing that I really like and I’d definitely watch this with some galpals. I think he’s good fun. There’s so much crap going on in the world. The movie seems like it would bea nice way to spend the afternoon. Heh.

  27. Laylo says:

    McConaughey AND Olivia Munn?! Great disappoint.
