Watch: See Channing Tatum Strip in First Footage From 'Magic Mike' (You're Welcome)
Well here it is ladies (and gents). Ahead of the trailer premiere this Wednesday, an early tease of footage from Steven Soderbergh's all-star, male stripper comedy "Magic Mike" has finally made its way onto the web.
Although the clip runs an extremely brief 16-seconds, it shows Channing Tatum (who's own life the film is based on) stripping out of a cop uniform, and proving that he still has his "Step Up" moves.
In addition to Tatum, the film stars Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and "True Blood" werewolf Joe Mangianello.
Back in January when Soderbergh's "Haywire" opened, Indiewire talked to Soderbergh about the casting. "Look, we were looking for the right people who had some buzz behind them," he said. "They also had to be able to do what we needed them to do and willing to do what we needed them to do. But I mean, we got really lucky. All these guys were great and have brought something specific to the movie. There’s nothing like shared potential humiliation to bond. These guys bonded very quickly. As soon as they started rehearsing these numbers, you rally around each other because it’s so embarrassing."
