Ladies, you’ve been patient with our non-stop nerd postings related to all-things-superheroic (which I’m sure you enjoy, too), but we have a little treat for you. We recently posted images of stars Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer in the stripper story, Magic Mike, but now we’ve got over fifty high resolution images. You can also listen to what Tatum had to say about the project in this recent interview with Steve. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and also starring Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Olivia Munn, Kevin Nash, Riley Keough, Cody Horn and Adam Rodriguez, Magic Mike opens on June 29th. Hit the jump to check out the images.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Mike (Tatum) is an entrepreneur. A man of many talents and loads of charm, he spends his days pursuing the American Dream from as many angles as he can handle: from roofing houses and detailing cars to designing furniture from his Tampa beach condo. But at night… he’s just magic. The hot headliner in an all-male revue, Magic Mike has been rocking the stage at Club Xquisite for years with his original style and over-the-top dance moves. The more the ladies love him, the more they spend, and the happier that makes club owner Dallas (McConaughey).
Seeing potential in a guy he calls the Kid (Pettyfer), Mike takes the 19-year-old under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of dancing, partying, picking up women and making easy money. It’s not long before the club’s newest act has fans of his own, as the summer opens up to a world of fun, friendship and good times. Meanwhile, Mike meets the Kid’s captivating sister, Brooke (Horn). She’s definitely someone he’d like to know a lot better, and it looks like he has a chance…until his lifestyle gets in the way.
Directed by Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh (“Traffic”) and written by Reid Carolin, “Magic Mike” is produced by Nick Wechsler, Gregory Jacobs, Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin. The creative filmmaking team includes production designer Howard Cummings, costume designer Christopher Peterson, music supervisor Frankie Pine and choreographer Alison Faulk.
