First Look: Matthew McConaughey is Sexy Uncle Sam in 'Magic Mike'
Pretty much everyone got to open up a few packages on Christmas yesterday, but today, we have some packages that might just be for the ladies. Warner Bros. has released the first official photo from Steven Soderbergh's male stripper drama Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and some other ripped young men who will be scantily clad in theaters. The last time male strippers were prominent on film was The Full Monty, but these guys put the British gang to shame with McConaughey in his default shirtless form and Tatum and Pettyfer suited up for more than military action.
Here's our first look at Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike courtesy of Warner Bros. (via Collider):
Magic Mike is directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, Contagion, Out of Sight) and written by Reid Carolin. Channimg Tatum plays the titular male stripper in a story that draws from the actor's real-life experiences when he became an exotic male dancer at age 19. Alex Pettyfer plays a young up-and-coming dancerwho becomes Magic Mike's protege and learns how to hustle on and off the stage. Matthew McConaughey also stars in the film as a former male dancer turned club manager and the film hits theaters on June 29th, 2012, for a double dose of Channing Tatum with G.I. Joe: Retaliation that same weekend.
