Steven Soderbergh and Channing Tatum’s opus to male stripping ‘Magic Mike‘ hasn’t revealed much since January, but here’s a couple new images to check out featuring Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Adam Rodriguez who seems rather out of place amonst those men.
‘Magic Mike‘ is that Channing Tatum film that many are snickering at, but for some reason I think it will wind up doing better business as it’s got a great time of year release plus it’s got that cast that women and many men will want to check out. It’ll be hard to write this off as a male version of ‘Showgirls‘ since Stephen Soderbergh is directing so it’ll be more ‘arty’…which is a good enough excuse to see a movie with some male nudity (no frontal though as we’ve all been warned). There’s only two new images, but our Miss Sashay painstakingly made us some better close up for you all to check out better as you can see above and below. As would be expected, Tatum overpowers the main shot while his fellow cast do their thing behind him. Below is Matt Bomer, and oddly absent is Alex Pettyfer who is mentored by Tatum’s own Magical Mike. Frankly, I think most readers are rather happy with these choices though.
Surprisingly, everyone’s favorite werewolf from ‘True Blood’, Joe Manganiello is hidden in the shadows, but with his character name of Big Dick Richey, I’m sure he’s feeling rather secure. I’m sure after this film, many will be taking a much closer look at his ‘True Blood’ ‘arty’ scenes though. Matt Bomer (below) plays ‘Ken‘ and I’m sure that would be his close resemblance of that particular doll.
‘Magic Mike’ is based loosely around Tatum’s early years as a stripper which Soderbergh learned about when they worked on another film project. It’s being billed as ‘coming of age’ film which is appropriate enough for a film about male stripping.
