Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, and Channing Tatum Strip in 'Magic Mike': FIRST LOOK


Here's the first official still from Magic Mike, the Steven Soderbergh-directed flick about Channing Tatum's former life as a stripper starring Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, and Matthew McConaughey, among others.

The official synopsis goes: "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."

It's got a June 29, 2012 release date.

Said Manganiello in October about his character: "Big Dick Richie? That's the reason to do it. There's definitely a scene that will answer those questions. Everybody kinda does their own thing...Big sexy Kevin Nash has his Tarzan thing, I've got my fireman thing, Matt Bomer's got a doctor thing going on, Adam Rodriguez does a Latino lover bit."

Matt Bomer doesn't make this shot, but he's been talking about it as well:

"There's something about throwing a thong on in front of other peope that just instantly forms an ensemble...I had never worn a thong before. So, the first time I tried it I put it on wrong and my junk didn't fit in it. I had to call a wardrobe person in and go, something's wrong with my thong you guys. I think we're going to have to figure this out' and they go 'yeah, your legs are in the wrong holes.'"

McConaughey, er, Uncle Sam:

  1. It's Soderbergh! Highly unlikely this will be bad. He often takes outlandish premises and makes them into something worthwhile. Can't wait.

  2. Where's Matt Bomer, he is actually third billed in the film and obviously the hottest and most talented of this crew!

  3. Before reading the comments, I thought I was the only gay guy not excited by this movie at all. Never seen the big deal in Channing Tatum, dislike McConaughey and Petyfer, neutral on Manganielo and Bomer

  4. I would say that the only one who is too old to be a stripper is Matthew McConaughey. He has a great body, but the face is too old and haggard. I never found him attractive anyhow.
    The pretence that all or even most male strippers are straight is laughable.
    Joe Manganiello does not have much of a face, just a muscle-Mary body.
    I like Alex Pettyfer better than the other two; he's beautiful and fit, but indeed does not have the right attitude to be a stripper.
    Tatum and Bomer will be really good. Channing often lets his looks slip, but he should do well here. Bomer, along with Pettyfer, is my fave. Pity William Levy Gutierrez will not be in it.

  5. Matthew McConnaughey looks really strange compared to the other guys.

  7. It's going to be very hard to get straight guys to go see this movie, even with their girlfriends/wives... It'll be great for bachelorettes, girls, gays, and Tweens who have oved on from the Twilight fan base...

  8. As much as I think that Manganiello is very hot, fun and a cool guy, I am NOT going to see that movie of stripper without full nudity. I'll wait for the Netflix streaming.

    Wonder if this will be the male version of Showgirls.

  9. Why is McConagay in this. Ruins it! Not that I was planning on actually watching this mess... well, maybe if I catch it at a Red Box...

  11. This is a Steven Soderbergh film people! He doesn't usually do terrible. Really don't think he'd sign on to direct this thing (ESPECIALLY not being Tatum's 1ST CHOICE to direct) unless he saw potential (no pun intended.) I, for one, am anxiously awaiting its release & also think its going to surprise the critics & naysayers!! So, my fellow ladies & pretty boys June 29th IT IS ON!!! (SN: Any "gay haters" on here remember one thing, YOU'RE ON HERE!! So SHUT THE HELL UP!)
