The full trailer won't arrive online until tomorrow, but we know you can't wait that long to see bits and pieces of Channing Tatum stripping while Entertainment Tonight reporters bark plot details in your ear. The first pieces of footage from Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike have arrived online, giving us just a taste of Tatum and cohorts (like Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer ... and other shirtless hunks) as they dazzle the ladies with suave moves all in the name of picking up girls and making lots of money.
The film is partly inspired by Tatum's real-life beginnings in the "entertainment" industry as a male stripper. Here, he plays a veteran stripper who takes a newbie (Pettyfer) under his wings in an attempt to show him how it's done (cue a little bom chicka wah wah). Magic Mike hits theaters on June 29th, which just so happens to be the same day G.I. Joe Retaliation (also starring Tatum) arrives, giving us a crazy double dose of Channing Tatum in the same weekend. Can we handle that much Tatum at one time? I know she can! [via The FilmStage]
