Is 'Magic Mike' What Women Want? (Red Band Trailers & Poll)

We've done our fair share of promoting (and sarcastically mocking) Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike." With the arrival of two new UK red band trailers, in which we see even more of Channing Tatum & Company's waxed bodies, we can again exclaim our anticipation for what is posturing itself as what women really want.

Now and Then: 'Haywire,' 'Bourne' Trilogy Prove That Style Is Substance

Steven Soderbergh is a tough guy to peg. He made his name with a densely talkative indie about orgasms ("sex, lies, and videotape"), and in 22 films since has tackled everything from classy capers ("Out of Sight, the "Ocean's" trilogy) to the biopic of an iconic revolutionary ("Che"). But one thing is clear: the man's got style.

The opening minutes of "Contagion" are all surface, literally. A bowl of peanuts on the bartop, a swiped credit card, an elevator button, the human hand: each is a vector of death itself, a pandemic already in motion. With the rasp of a cough, a title card tells us we're in "Day 2." It's terrifying.

Soderbergh's 'Haywire' is Kick-Ass: Trailers and Early Reviews UPDATED

I finally saw Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire" (January 20) at Relativity Media's Hollywood premiere at the DGA Thursday night. In his intro, Soderbergh said, "I happened upon Gina Carano beating a woman up in a cage." The way to make it even better? Have her beat the crap out of macho movie stars. "Did you meet Gina?" Soderbergh asked me at the after-party. "Don't say the wrong thing, she's very strong."
