Trailer For Steven Soderbergh’s Stripper Movie MAGIC MIKE Starring Channing Tatum

magic-mike

Here is the first trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike which is said to be based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a male stripper.  The film follows Tatum as he takes a young dancer under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.

This could have easily been a movie with a female lead or some 3D dance movie, but that story has been done many times.  It seems like an odd choice for a director of Soderbergh’s caliber, but that should actually help the predictable story gain some ground.  It could be fun in a “well at least it’s better than Burlesque” kind of way.

Watch the trailer below, Magic Mike opens  June 29th.
