Watch: Trailer For Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Magic Mike’ With Matthew McConaughey & Channing Tatum

Watch: Trailer For Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike' With Matthew McConaughey & Channing Tatum

Delivering the virus thriller “Contagion” last year, kicking off 2012 with the lean Euro-flavored actioner “Haywire” and now lensing the psychological thriller “The Bitter Pill,” Steven Soderbergh‘s ability and eagerness to jump from genre to genre is no surprise. But even his die hard fans were surprised by his decision to helm “Magic Mike.” And now the first trailer has arrived to give everyone a taste of what he’s been putting togther.

Boasting a hunky cast led by Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer, the film is the brainchild of Tatum who is also producing and conceived of the story based on his own experiences as a male stripper. Penned by Reid Carolin, “Magic Mike” is the name of an experienced stripper (Tatum) who teaches a younger dancer (Pettyfer) how to hustle his wares on stage and off at the exotic club Xquisite, run by Dallas (McConaughey). Magic Mike is also eager to get out of the game and focus on his custom design business.

We’re told the film is a big crowd-pleaser — for the ladies and dudes — and the trailer certainly points in that direction. It’s definintely the most mainstream effort Soderbergh has put together in years, but the framing and lensing still carries his trademark. That said, this is a whole different rhythm from the director, another testament to his abilities to move, shift and adapt from project to project. And across the board, the cast looks game and engaging as hell.

Co-starring Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Gabriel Igelsias, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Betsy Brandt, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Cody Horn, “Magic Mike” opens on June 29th. Watch below or in HD at Apple.

While I am very much looking forward to seeing this, the trailer is pretty bad. At least after the 50 second mark when it becomes a series of short, uninteresting bits of dialogue between Channing Tatum and the girl he presumably falls for. If we could just, yah know, cut out all the talking – that would be nice.


Soderbergh's getting ready to retire, alright…… I anxiously await the next 30 Playlist articles about it.


Admit it, this trailer is all kinds of lame. I have to go lie down now and recover from the dialogue.


Cody Horn's monotone voice is giving Blake Lively's voice over in the Savages trailer a run for its money


Sorry, but this looks crap. Luckily it also looks like a blatant marketing ploy and I really doubt it's the feel good rom com it's being sold as here.


Yall need to get over the fact that a movie made by a certain filmmaker can be interesting BECAUSE of the filmmaker. If this was some Robert Luketic studio turd, I wouldn't even click on this page. But a filmmaker I subscribe to and constantly check on, doing this kind of a story with this cast? I'm cheggin it. The trailer's godawful, but I can see past the generic trailer formula and "We Found Love" playing for what I'm looking for.


The Playlist is always on Soderbergh's junk, they love him. I think he's a good director, but this doesn't look very good. Let's hope the movie actually turns out well.

This is definitely the rom-com cut of the trailer.


Okay this might actually be a good movie, but that trailer was sought of awful.


What the hell is going on at The Playlist lately? This trailer is bathed in like 7 shades of yellow, has awful dialogue, and has a Rihanna song blasting over it. And you're all "It looks engaging as hell!"

Christ have you all been brainwashed?


Film does look like a very fun entertainment film.

Not surprised though to see Cody Horn is all over the trailer. Being the daughter of Warner Brothers Entertainment President & COO Alan F. Horn has it's perks.


How much money is Tatum paying you? This looks fucking terrible.

man this cody horn broad is pretty hot,i'd like to bend her over a barrel and show her the 50 states


If i'm just judging the trailer, looks like garbage and cant believe Soderbergh directed this. But i'm assuming it has to be better than how it looks.


its unbelievable both Magic Mike and Sex, Lies, and Videotape are soderbergh's films


"Delivering the virus thriller "Contagion" last year, kicking off 2012 with the lean Euro-flavored actioner "Haywire" and now lensing the psychological thriller "Haywire,""

Shouldn't something be corrected here?


wb is obviously trying to market this to The Vow/romance crowd..


The trailer makes it seems like the film is built on the romance between Tatum and Horn and not the relationship between Tatum and Pettyfer
