Channing Tatum strips down to his banana hammock in the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike

Apr. 18, 2012by: Niki Stephens

There are no banana hammocks in this, just so you know. Trust me, it's semi-safe to watch the trailer for MAGIC MIKE.

I can't verify that the movie itself is completely banana hammock-less though.

Well, it looks like we finally get to see Channing Tatum's life story. He didn't lose his moves from his old stripping days either. I bet it's just like riding a bike. The trailer really doesn't look that bad. I had a hard time digesting that Steven Soderbergh would direct something like this. The best part of this thing is going to be Matthew McConaughey, I just know it.

Check out the trailer below. If you want to see the abs of steel in HD, head on over here.

"A dramatic comedy set in the world of male strippers, "Magic Mike" is directed by Academy Award(R)-winning director Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic") and stars Channing Tatum in a story inspired by his real life. The film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money."

Though a lot of people say Tatum can't act I think he can which is proof with A Guide to Recognizing your Saints. However, being that is the only movie where I saw him 'act' I am not saying he is a great actor. I think he can act if he is pushed past this pretty boy antic, plus if he has a connection with the director. Dito Montel is not a great director but was able to get Tatum's emotion out by knowing the character (it was his life story). Now Soderbergh is a hit or miss with me I can see

Now Soderbergh is a hit or miss with me I can see Soderbergh being that director. Tatum was decent in Haywire, but only time will tell with this film. This may not be a rush out to theater film (depending on reviews) but I will certainly check this out.

It's criminal to have Matt Bomer in your movie and not put a single glimpse of him in your trailer. Still looks better than I thought it would, though.

Soderbergh's films have been hit or miss with me, and this looks like a miss. I'm not sure what the tone of this movie is suppose to be. If its a comedy, it doesn't look funny. But it doesn't look like much of a drama either.
