The first trailer for Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike has been released today courtesy of Apple. Starring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer, the film follows a group of male strippers and is partly based on Tatum’s early life, before he made it big in film.
Though Magic Mike is a bit more mainstream than Soderbergh usually goes for, it still does look like one of his films. His trademark filmmaking style shines through in the trailer and from what we can see here, I think Magic Mike will definitely be a crowd pleaser, despite looking a bit silly and mindless.
Tatum, who has been showing up in theatres a lot lately (Haywire, The Vow and 21 Jump Street) looks totally game in the role and his co-stars look like they’re having a good time too. All in all it looks like a fun film that should make for an easy sell, due to its eye-pleasing cast.
The film revolves around “an experienced stripper (Tatum) who teaches a younger dancer (Pettyfer) how to hustle his wares on stage and off at the exotic club Xquisite, run by Dallas (McConaughey). Magic Mike is also eager to get out of the game and focus on his custom design business.”
Magic Mike co-stars Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Gabriel Igelsias, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Betsy Brandt, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Cody Horn and will open on June 29th.
