When making a movie about male strippers, it’s nearly impossible to not throw in a variation of The Weather Girls‘ “It’s Raining Men.” As such, this latest clip/trailer from Steven Soderbergh’s male stripper pic Magic Mike highlights Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Alex Pettyfer performing an umbrella-enhanced routine to said song. The dance looks fun and ridiculous, and it’s still hard to believe that Soderbergh is behind the camera on this one. It’s the unofficial “Year of Channing Tatum” and I’m incredibly interested to see what kind of story Soderbergh is telling with Magic Mike.
Hit the jump to watch the clip/trailer that will play during MTV’s Movie Awards. The film also stars Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, Riley Keough and Olivia Munn. Magic Mike opens on June 29th.

Here’s the synopsis for Magic Mike:
To a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family, Magic Mike (Tatum) seems like the perfect role model: he’s got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. What’s his secret? He’s a male stripper, and when the kid dives headlong into Magic Mike’s world, his mad dancing skills and hunger for excitement make for an unforgettable summer.
Sexy, funny and shocking, this film is a hedonistic thrill ride with a powerful undertow. A razor sharp cast – led by top liner Channing Tatum in a career-defining turn as the titular Magic Mike devours the up-to-the moment freight train of a script, and the result will be relentlessly entertaining and sure to be one of the most talked about films of the year…… and let’s not forget the price-of-admission dancing sequences…
