So, are we about to see the world's first male stripper franchise? If things go Channing Tatum's way -- and these days, it seems everything is (including being a clue on "Jeopardy!" recently) -- "Magic Mike" will be taking another swing around the cinematic stripper pole.

Things are going very, very well for Channing Tatum right now. Like some kind of bizarro world Taylor Kitsch, he's opened two movies this year to over $100 million—"The Vow" and "21 Jump Street"—with "Magic Mike" likely to reach that mark as well. It's even more remarkable considering it's across three different genres: romance, comedy and uh, stripping. And his upcoming calendar is looking very good as well, with production on Roland Emmerich's actioner "White House Down" to kick off next month, the Wachowskis sci-fi "Jupiter Ascending" following in the fall and Bennett Miller's true story crime tale "Foxcatcher" after that. But Tatum is continuing to strike while the iron is hot.

Well, if wasn't obvious before, it is now: Steven Soderbergh and Channing Tatum are having a full on bromance. After appearing in a small role in "Haywire," it seems Soderbergh and Tatum really hit it off, with the former encouraging the latter to develop his idea about a movie based on his days stripping and then signing on to direct. The result, "Magic Mike," is currently looking at taking in over $30 million this weekend, a rather remarkable feat in June, when you consider there are no superheroes, toys, or brands to be found. Also, the pair recently wrapped on "The Bitter Pill" which hits theaters next spring. But it looks like they haven't left Club Xquisite just yet.

At the recent Los Angeles press day for “Magic Mike,” which tells the story of a successful stripper who takes a newcomer under his wing, there were a lot of questions about thongs – certainly more than are usually asked at a press conference. But with director Steven Soderbergh at the helm of the film and the center of the panel of contributors who brought it to life, much more was ultimately discussed than just where the cast purchased their undergarments, and how they chose the ones that they felt best represented their characters’ personalities.

On paper, the idea of a movie based on Lego sounds ridiculous and so easy to be exploited into a quick cash grab, brainless, toy brand blockbuster. But thankfully, the folks behind "Lego: The Piece Of Resistance" are putting their aims high for something that sounds like it's going to be a total blast. Anyway, we'll just fastforward to the good part: Batman and Superman are gonna be in this.

There’s just something about Channing Tatum. Clearly, he’s got that magic touch (why else would Paramount be reshooting “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” to add more Chan?), a certain je ne sais quoi that would inspire veteran auteur Stephen Soderbergh to bring his early life story as a Florida stripper to the silver screen, while making the ultimate male stripper movie in the process. It just so happens to be a really good film too, one that’s about more than just shakin’ what the good Lord bestowed on Mr. Tatum and pals.

So, concept is simple: the White House comes under attack and a Secret Service agent (or a former Secret Service agent) needs to come in, knock heads and save the day. And it seems this idea was good enough to spawn two rival movies that are racing to win audiences: "White House Down" and "Olympus Has Fallen." White House Exhausted yet?

While the summer season in 2012 features a lot of men dressing up in tights, the dudes in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" flip the script by taking off their clothes instead. But they're not going out to fight crime. Instead, they're melting hearts and making some fast money at the same time. And if you want to know how wild this movie might get, two red band TV spots are here to give you a taste.

We've run out of clever ways to introduce this, so let's get to the point of what "Magic Mike" is really all about: hot, buff, oily and raw dudes who take their clothes off. That's it. And if you need more proof, a huge batch of new images from the movie have dropped.

Aside from the smash hit "The Vow" (which also happened to star Channing Tatum) there hasn't been much variety for the ladies who don't necessarily want to see to see superheroes, crude comedy or lots of explosions. But the promise of romance, comedy and yes, lots of attractive men taking their clothes off in "Magic Mike" should likely find an audience who haven't really been well served so far this year.
