Magic Mike Trailer: Channing Tatum’s Male Stripper Movie Is Finally Here

Dim the house lights and change into something more comfortable — onstage, if you don't mind — because the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's highly anticipated male stripper movie Magic Mike has finally arrived. It's The Avengers of beefcake, and it's got Channing Tatum taking his clothes off, doing front-flips, spinning around like a whirling dervish, and generally winning every season ever broadcast of So You Think You Can Dance, Make Me a Supermodel, Teen Wolf, Grey's Anatomy, and True Blood. That some of those shows cannot even be won matters not. All that matters is that you've got a Tatumpalooza, you've got Matthew McConaughey in the undressed role he's been preparing his whole life for, you've got glimpses of the supporting strippers like Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello, and you've got some buzzkill girls who basically wander into this movie to say, "Waaah waaah, don't strip, do you really want to strip? You don't really want to strip." Shut up! They want to strip, and you should let them. America the Beautiful, or something!
