Previously, we got to see a short teaser for the full length movie trailer for the much-anticipated male stripper film Magic Mike. Today, we get to see the whole enchilada, as it were. I, along with others I’m sure, was really looking forward to the release of this trailer because I, along with others, expected to see … well, some male strippers. The just-released trailer for Magic Mike does feature a tiny bit of stripping … but it also features a whole lot of non-stripping movie plot. And that’s just no fun.
I know some people were hoping that Magic Mike would be campy and cheesy much like Showgirls was/is. It would appear that that is not the case. As we can see in this trailer, the film will focus significantly on a stripper named Magic Mike (played by Channing Tatum) who wants to be more than a stripper … he wants to build furniture. I mean, yes, that’s a nice sentiment and could make a nice story but … if anyone says they are expecting anything less than male stripping, stripping, stripping from this film, they’re lying. I’m a bit bummed by this trailer, to be honest. Maybe they are easing us into the much hotter scenes in the film … maybe not. But I have to say, except for the anticipation that fans have generated in their heads, I’ve yet to see anything that has really got me excited to actually see this movie.
What do y’all think?
