POSTERS

Preview: Magic Mike (2012)

Synopsis:

Stripper by night, hopeful entrepreneur by day, a young man wants to make something of his life, but finds his job on the stage more enticing and more monetarily rewarding.

  • Poster: B-

Review:

The concept here is entirely expected. This is a film about male strippers after all, but I think the demos the producers want to entice will be drooling over this key art even if it's an otherwise bland design.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

Women will undoubtedly be lining up for this film after the trailer, but is there enough newness to make it a cross-gender hit? Probably not. After you take away the sexual aspects, the film looks to be an unoriginal romantic drama. The only thing that could save it is director Steven Soderbergh who doesn't typically make common fare.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
