New Images from MAGIC MIKE Feature Half-Naked Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, and Matt Bomer

Magic Mike is a peculiar film. Had I simply been told that a movie was being made based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a male stripper, I most likely would have brushed it off as silly. However, Magic Mike is directed by Steven Soderbergh. I’m always interested in what Soderbergh has to say, and he obviously saw something special in Tatum’s story that he felt warranted a feature film. The story finds Tatum mentoring a young protégé (Alex Pettyfer) and is said to be reminiscent of Saturday Night Fever, with Soderbergh calling it “sexy, funny, and shocking.” Tatum recently confirmed to Steve that the film would be hard R but would be lacking in the full-frontal nudity department, and now Warner Bros. has released a couple new images from the film that are sure to delight those who enjoy their men both naked and tuxedoed.

Hit the jump to see the images. You can also check out what co-star Matt Bomer had to say about the film and his character here. The film also stars Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Cody Horn and Adam Rodriguez. Magic Mike opens June 29th.

Here’s a synopsis for Magic Mike:

Set in the world of male strippers, “Magic Mike” is directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars Channing Tatum (“Dear John,” “Step Up”) in a story inspired by his real life. The film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.

    Wish I didn’t have to see Channing’s puckered face and Pettyfer’s old man face, but Bomer is worth the price of admission. Dayum.
