'Magic Mike': First Look Includes a Patriotic and Shirtless Matthew McConaughey
The first official tease from Steven Soderbergh's upcoming stripper film also highlights co-stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello.
Director Steven Soderbergh explores the world of male strippers with Magic Mike, and ahead of the film's June 2012 release, Warner Bros. has unleashed the first still from the dramedy.
Stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey are all accounted for in the photo, with the latter apparently dressed as a shirtless Uncle Sam. The rest of the actors, all of whom play strippers in the movie, are only showing off their arms for now.
Magic Mike is inspired by Tatum's experiences working as a stripper before his acting career took off. But instead of the lead, Tatum plays the mentor to Pettyfer's character, a performer in the troupe.
McConaughey plays Dallas, a former stripper who owns the club where the two perform -- though from the looks of the photo, he doesn't take his retirement very seriously.
Magic Mike arrives in U.S. theaters on June 29, 2012. It also stars Matt Bomer, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough and Cody Horn.
