First look at Magic Mike

The boys strut their stuff

A first image has arrived for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, and would you believe it – Matthew McConaughey’s only gone and taken his shirt off!

The first image shows McConaughey in the midst of a strip routine, alongside musclebound co-stars Alex Pettyfer and Channing Tatum. How he’s going to get out of those impossibly tight jeans is beyond us, but we’re sure he’ll find a way…

The film is based upon Tatum’s real life experiences as a male stripper, with Pettyfer playing a newcomer to the clothes-shedding business that Tatum’s character takes under his wing.

“We’re using Saturday Night Fever as our model, so hopefully we’re on the right track,” said Soderbergh of the project. “When Channing talked to me about this, I thought it was one of the best ideas I’d ever heard for a movie. I said I wanted in immediately. It’s sexy, funny and shocking.”

Magic Mike
is released in the US on 29 June 2012, with a UK release date yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, those lusting for exposed man-flesh can just watch any of Matthew McConaughey’s back catalogue to tide them over…

Ladies, which slab of Hollywood muscle are you most looking forward to seeing sans trousers? Tell us, below.

      On the plus side, if Total Film can achieve the same level of photos from this as they did on the Dark Knight, Dalidab will be dead from an aneurism by Easter.

      But Dalidab has such respect for men, it's not about it being sexual for him, he truly admires them for their worth as human beings and they are not viewed in any way, shape or form as sex objects in his eyes.

      i sometimes wonder if dalidab and dave have a history outside this site, as there is always a sense of sexual tension going on there haha

      He alternates between p**sing me off, threatening me, and kissing my a*s. Don't worry though any time I feel a hint of sexual tension I just go look at a photo of him on his twitter and it instantly evaporates ;)

      He shared it about for attention a while back but stays quite quiet these days. Google 'Dabion Donaldson Twitter' if you want to enjoy Dalidab in all his glory...

      Having seen (and been threatened with) his 'brother', inbred is a pretty good guess. They look like guys that were turned down for the Hills have Eyes but looked too weird.
