12 clips from director Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper pic Magic Mike have been released. The film is loosely based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a male stripper, and the actor stars as a stripping mentor to a young up-and-comer played by Alex Pettyfer. With Soderbergh onboard, we can reasonably assume that this won’t simply be a straightforward, flashy stripper movie. Early word has been strongly positive, and I’m eager to see what kind of story Soderbergh intends to tell against the backdrop of this kind of world.

A couple of new red-band clips for director Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike have gone online. Though there aren’t any gratuitous full-frontal shots, there’s plenty of shirtlessness, pantslessness and ass-shots to put the rest of us members of the male species to shame. I’m beyond eager to see what Soderbergh has put together with this “stripper movie” and based on general buzz, the unofficial Year of Channing Tatum should continue full speed ahead on the heels of Magic Mike.

The first trailer and poster for director Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike have gone online. The film is loosely based on Channing Tatum‘s days as a male stripper, and the actor stars as a mentor to a young “exotic dancer” played by Alex Pettyfer. Though some may balk at the “Channing Tatum stripper movie”, this world actually looks like it could be a lot of fun through Soderbergh’s eyes. The trailer opens with the easy sell, but once we get into the plot it’s obvious that there’s a bit more to Magic Mike than professional undressing. Soderbergh isn’t one to do Step Up-type movie where every single plot beat is predictable and groan-worthy (which this movie could easily have been), so I’m interested to see what drew him to this story. Moreover, Matthew McConaughey appears to be having a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to watching him steal every scene he’s in.

Warner Bros. has released the first official image and synopsis for director Steven Soderbergh‘s male stripper movie, Magic Mike. The film stars the perpetually shirtless Matthew McConaughey along with Alex Pettyfer, Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Mangianello, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Cody Horn, and Adam Rodriguez. For those unaware, Magic Mike is based on Tatum’s real life experiences as a 19-year-old stripper, and tells “a story of friendship set in the world of male strippers.” Here’s what Soderbergh had to say about the project:
“When Channing talked to me about this, I thought it was one of the best ideas I’d ever heard for a movie. I said I wanted in immediately. It’s sexy, funny and shocking. We’re using Saturday Night Fever as our model, so hopefully we’re on the right track.”

Roles in Steven Soderbergh’s stripper comedy Magic Mike continue to evaporate as both Adam Rodriguez (CSI: Miami) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) have joined the film. The pair join a cast that already includes Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Olivia Munn and Matt Bomer. For those unaware, Magic Mike is a semi-autobiographical tale about Tatum’s early days as a male stripper.
As you may expect, Rodriguez will play one of said male strippers in the pic. Additionally, Deadline reports that the actor has also landed a small and unspecified role in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. As for McLendon-Covey, THR broke the news of her casting but fails to mention any details regarding her role. The Reno 911! veteran also has a role alongside Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Jennifer Lopez and Dennis Quaid in the romantic comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting which is due out on May 11th, 2012.
