One month ago, we wrote on The Smoking Nun that the then just-released theatrical trailer for stripper flick Magic Mike was an utter disaster: “With a cast that includes Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Mangianello, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConau- ghey, you would think that the introduction to the majorly hyped $20 million Magic Mike would include a scene or two that comprises what this film’s appeal is: Hot guys bumping and grinding.”
Instead, the lame April tease focused on a zzzzzz romance between Channing Tatum as his masculine-looking love interest Cody Horn. We added, “I tell you, Warners is marketing this to be a gigantic flop, if the studio believes a dramatic love story is why people will dole out dollars to see Magic Mike.
Well, apparently the studio suits were reading The Nun, after all. Take a look at the new trailer—now we’re talking! MM is released June 29. *
