We’ve been fantasizing about “Magic Mike” since we first heard about the project in August 2011, and we’ve been counting the minutes (literally!) since January. It is simply awesome to have the much-heralded — now relegated to history — MAGIC MIKE COUNTDOWN CLOCKfinally reach its zero hour.
Happy “Magic Mike” Day, everybody!
It’s a national holiday here at Swoonworthy — if you’re looking for us, we’ll be at our local movie theater, squealing, giggling and doing our best to make “Magic Mike” an interactive experience by nonsensically throwing dollar bills at the poor movie screen … and then, we’re doing it all over again. And again.
Meanwhile, has a movie press tour ever been this much fun? The hijinks of Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello, in particular, have been a complete joy to behold. Thanks for all the laughs, guys — looking forward to the sequel!
Here’s our favorite moment of the “Magic Mike” press tour: Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and a flash mob on the “Today” show:
At least Ann Curry got a Manganiello body roll before she was booted!
Our greatest fantasies have been realized: “Magic Mike” is a critical darling! Who woulda thunk it — besides us, since we called it the “Citizen Kane of Male Stripper Movies” some 10 months ago (EONS before EW … yes, we mad)!
“Magic Mike” debuted yesterday with a rare 100 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Sure, there were only five reviews at the time — including critics from Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, btw — and the rating has dropped some since. But, still: SCORE!
And we’ve published the most essential of the new stills below, editing out most of the chicks and clothed shots, so you don’t have to! Look for yourself — I swear Matt Bomer rocks half a uniform like no one else …
Keep track of our “Magic Mike” Countdown Clock (at right) ’til the movie’s June 29 release!
There is not enough YES! YES! YES! in the world to equal my reaction to seeing the official new poster for “Magic Mike.” GREAT JOB, Warner Bros. marketing department! May I suggest selling them in the theaters opening night? And bring, like, LOADS. I’mma need to wallpaper my entire home … inside and out.
P.S. Have you checked our “Magic Mike” Countdown Clock (TM) today? 28 days!
