Warner Brothers released their new film, Magic Mike, on June 29.
Magic Mike is about a male stripper named Mike (played by Channing Tatum), who works at a club in Florida. During the day he works at a construction company, where he meets a teenage boy, Adam (played by Alex Pettyfer), who recently got a job with the company.
He runs into Adam later that night and after helping Adam get into a nightclub, Mike tells him that he owes him a favor.
Adam is forced to return the favor later that night, when one of the other male strippers gets hurt and can’t go on stage. Mike pushes Adam onto the stage and after proving himself, he joins their lifestyle and begins working at the club himself. He gets his own stage name, “the kid”.
Mike becomes a mentor to Adam throughout the film, while he struggles with his new career, his sister, and a recent drug addiction.
The film stars Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer, and co-stars Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, and Olivia Munn.
Magic Mike is rated R and runs just short of two hours.
According to The Washington Post, Magic Mike opened up at Number 2 with 39.1 million dollars. The only movie that beat Magic Mike was Ted with 54.4 million dollars.
