For the past few months, there's been a lot of chatter and anticipation building up about the upcoming movie Magic Mike, a fictional story inspired by star Channing Tatum's real life background as a male stripper (I know that shocks you, since Tatum has come so far from the days when he was paid to take his clothes off for the public...). In addition to Tatum, the cast list reads like a who's who of Hollywood's current hunks du jour: Matthew Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello... and, somehow, Matthew McConaughey.
The trailer for Magic Mike has finally arrived and it's everything we could've imagined...
...a.k.a. it looks horrendous.
Really? His dream is custom furniture?
Really? Matthew McConaughey as the master of ceremonies? Unless he busts out in a show stopping song like Cher in Burlesque, I'm unimpressed.
Really? That Rihanna song?!
This is probably going to play out like a male version of the classic trainwreck Showgirls (with less nudity, I'd assume). And, let's be honest, I'm most definitely going to see it in theaters. Sometimes I really hate myself...
Magic Mike hits theaters June 29, 2012.
