In a word: Asses. Be they ass cheeks peeking out from either side of a neon thong or simply barefaced, male booties are well-represented in these two new videos from the United Kingdom. As in previous trailers, there's also no shortage of greased up abs and muscled bodies shimmying and shaking about for the delight of womenfolk the world over.
Plenty of folks have written off Magic Mike as "That Channing Tatum stripper movie," but the material we've seen suggests it's not simply an exploitative, simple moneygrab, but could be something with a sense of humor and some solid character work. And, of course, ass for days, as you can see in this two videos from Digital Spy. Clearly, these are NSFW, folks.
Written by Tatum's production partner Reid Carolin, the story is loosely autobiographical, based on Tatum's pre-movie star experiences as a thrustmonkey. The actor plays a version of his own mentor-figure from his stripping days, with Alex Pettyfer as a younger stand-in for the impressionable Tatum. The cast also includes Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Olivia Munn, Betsy Brandt, Riley Keough, and Gabriel Igelsias.
Magic Mike arrives on June 29th.
