Under the expert direction of STEVEN SODERBERGH, the new drama MAGIC MIKE examines the world of male strip clubs as it tells a tale of hopes and dreams, some realized and some gone awry. A much more substantial film than the trailer suggests, the film will undoubtedly get a lot of attention because of the ‘beefcake’ cast that includes CHANNING TATUM, ALEX PETTYFER, MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY, MATT BOMER, ALEX RODRIGUEZ and JOE MANANIELLO.
Scripted by REID CARLTON (producing partner of CHANNING TATUM), the story is loosely based on the real-life exploits of TATUM before he hit the big-time as an actor. During the press conference to promote the movie, the actor talked about his days as a stripper and why he called it quits. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
