Magic Mike

Magic Mike

Channing Tatum has already had a super busy 2012 with the likes of Haywire, The Vow and 21 Jump Street already under his belt.

But he will be back this summer with his new movie Magic Mike, which sees him reunite with director Steven Soderbergh.

Before kicking off his career as an actor Tatum was a stripper in Florida and the story is partly based on his experiences at that time.

Yes you heard me right this is a movie about male strippers and Tatum is joined on the cast list by Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Maganiello and Olivia Munn.

The movie follows veteran stripper Magic Mike (Tatum) who is teaching the ins and outs of the profession to The Kid (Pettyfer) and taking him under his wing.

This is a third movie in quick succession for director Soderbergh after the success of Contagion and Haywire in the past few months.

This is the second of three projects with Tatum as the pair are set to work together again on psychological thriller The Side Effects, which is due out next year.

So if superhero/big budget blockbusters are not your thing keep your eye out for comedy Magic Mike as it looks set to be a breathe of fresh air in cinemas this summer. 

Magic Mike is released 13th July.
