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.

Can a movie about male stripping become the sleeper hit of the summer? Warner Bros. is certainly hoping so, and with Channing Tatum already 2/2 with "The Vow" and "21 Jump Street," the odds are looking very good that "Magic Mike" -- which also boasts Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello among the hunktacular cast -- could cap off a helluva 2012 for the actor.

Let's get this straight up front: The Weather Girls' classic disco song "It's Raining Men" is not included in the "Magic Mike" soundtrack (maybe in the film?), but there is a cover by modern R&B singer Countre Black, so at least that's something.  A coming of age dramedy based on the real-life experiences of actor Channing Tatum, "Magic Mike" centers on an experienced stripper (Tatum) who takes a younger performer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.

After a divisive trailer that either tried covering the film’s mediocrity with a Rihanna soundtrack or illustrated a misguided attempt to package something more unconventional, Stephen Soderbergh’s film “Magic Mike” at least knows its main selling points well, namely its unbelievably fit leads Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. And judging from their recent cover story on the film, which features its cast front and center unabashedly strutting their stuff, Entertainment Weekly is keenly aware as well.

Despite the occasional film like "John Carter," the major studios are having a pretty good time of it in 2012. The box office is up all over, and films like "The Hunger Games," "21 Jump Street" and "The Avengers" have performed above expectations with both critics and audiences. There's plenty more to come in the summer, as we discussed yesterday in our blockbuster preview, but what of films of the non-explode-y variety in the warmer months?

Delivering the virus thriller "Contagion" last year, kicking off 2012 with the lean Euro-flavored actioner "Haywire" and now lensing the psychological thriller "The Bitter Pill," Steven Soderbergh's ability and eagerness to jump from genre to genre is no surprise. But even his die hard fans were surprised by his decision to helm "Magic Mike." And now the first trailer has arrived to give everyone a taste of what he's been putting togther.

This summer a bunch of very attractive men are going to take it off and shake it in Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike." Starring a calendar ready cast including Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Mangianello and more, it will definitely be something different at the multiplex that will be filled with CGI and explosions over the next few months. JustJared has unveiled a couple new looks at the film, but if you think this is just light entertainment for the ladies, guess again.
