Now, THIS is the trailer the movie studio should’ve released first instead of that schmaltzy sad excuse of a romantic comedy they were trying to push. No one wants to see a movie about a struggling furniture designer by day who strips for money only to fall in love with his best friend’s sister. Sounds horrible, right? Well, that’s what the first trailer was all about. It looked like a poor man’s “Striptease” and that’s putting it nicely.
Thankfully, someone kicked some sense into the studio execs and informed them what the public really wants to see- pecs, abs and thongs. That’s right, we want to see some hot men stripping. And the more the merrier.
In the newly-released trailer, all signs of that aforementioned love story is nowhere to be seen. Instead, we have most of the cast revealing their “assets” on stage. From military fatigues, cowboy outfits, doctor scrubs, we finally see what costumes Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matt Bomer wear on stage. Even if it’s for a fleeting moment. Those outfits couldn’t hit the floor faster if you ask me. Check out the new and improved trailer below. The Chippendales have nothing on them.
Isn’t the new trailer sooooooo much better? That said, I’m sure the final edit of the film still has that unnecessary love story and furniture designing subplot. Oh well, I’ll still sit through it to watch the sexy actors strut their stuff. Gotta get me some dollar bills.
“This movie isn’t about my life,” Channing shares. “[The plot] has nothing to do with me other than that there’s an 18, 19-year-old kid coming into this world. That’s it. [But] I think the world is pretty damn accurate. Everything you see in the movie is stuff that I saw.”
