Happy ‘Magic Mike’ Day!

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 CLOCK finally 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.

Say it with us, people: “My body is ready!!!

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!

‘Magic Mike’ … My Body Is Ready!

magic-mike-still

The amazing new onslaught of high-quality stills from “Magic Mike” has only made me more certain of my initial assertion last August: It will be The “Citizen Kane” of Male Stripper Movies!

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

The MTV Movie Awards: So This Happened

Joe Manganiello MTV Movie Awards

Why do I have the feeling that Joe Manganiello’s appearance as Big Dick Richie on last night’s MTV Movie Awards was filthier than anything actually will be seen on the big screen in “Magic Mike”?

Here’s Joe, alongside Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, getting inappropriate with his firefighter’s ax, a golden bucket of popcorn and a married (for now) movie starlet:
