We've run out of clever ways to introduce this, so let's just 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 has dropped.
The latest from Steven Soderbergh is definitely a bit of shift in gears, a rollicking tale based on Channing Tatum's actual years as a stripper that rounds up calendar-worthy pin-up dudes Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer along with some ladies, Cody Horn, Riley Keough and Olivia Munn. As the trailers, clips and TV spots have already let on, this is going to be a music-filled good time, and from what we hear, not just for the girls, but for the guys too. And at any rate, it should be a nice break from the explosions-brand-name-superhero-sequel-prequel run of the movies that make up most of the summer selection at the multiplex.
"Magic Mike" opens on June 29th. Thongs to throw at the screen, not included.
