Magic Mike
If you missed last week’s dramedy “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” you definitely need to see it. Lorene Scafaria does a smashing job in her directorial debut, crafting a movie that’s both funny and poignant. For more of my thoughts, take a look at my review.

Continuing last week’s format, Trailer Talk will now only discuss the wide release films coming to theaters. From now on, I’ll only make note of indies and documentaries when I think they’re worth watching in the theater.

MY PICKS FOR THE WEEK: “Magic Mike” and “Ted.”

Matthew McConaughey
Actor Matthew McConaughey created his own stripper sequence in racy new movie Magic Mike - because he knew he'd come to regret not taking the opportunity to hit the stage and bare all, like his castmates.

The newlywed Dazed And Confused star agreed to play strip club boss Dallas in director Steven Soderbergh's saucy project last year, and admits the script he read required him to keep his clothes on.

However, the 42 year old couldn't resist the once-and-a-lifetime opportunity to try his hand at erotic dancing, so he picked out a song and wrote in a risque sequence for himself.
