After much cruel teasing, the trailer for Steven Soderbergh‘s male stripper opus Magic Mike is finally here, and what a trailer it is!
It covers a lot of ground in a scanty 2:30, showing us “Magic Mike” (a.k.a. Channing Tatum) doing what he does best, i.e. making ladies happy with his sexy, naked, man body. He also appears to make himself happy, via cash money. Or does he? The trailer shows the movie’s lame side when it reveals the film’s central dramatic conflict: Magic Mike meets a girl who hates fun and doesn’t want him to strip! And he likes making weird-looking furniture, so…something with that! So maybe everything’s not as magic as it seems?
Except wait, no, that girl is lame and his furniture is ugly and this is what he was born to do. There, movie characters, I solved all your problems for you. Now show me your genitals.
