Forums - Movies Discussion - Will Magic Mike be this Generations Striptease for Critics? Maybe not critics, but American Females seemed to love it!

The movie is coming out this weekend. Girls and Men may end up seeing this. Who wouldn't want to break the law with  matthew mcconaughey?

The question is now, will this movie be any good? Unlike Striptease I do not think there will be any Male nudity other than maybe the back side. But it could be similar in the fact that it could possibly suck HARD! What do you all think? I predict a small gross due to Spiderman. But online sales say other wise.

Who's Going to see this movie over Spiderman this weekend, or ever?

'Magic Mike' is king of online ticket sales

This post has been updated. See below for details:

 "Magic Mike" is dominating online ticket sales, indicating that fans are preparing to go in groups to the male stripper movie starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey.

A spokesman for Fandango.com confirmed Tuesday that "Magic Mike" accounts for 36% of all ticket sales on the site, slightly ahead of "Brave," which is already in theaters, at 31%.

Among other movies opening this weekend, "Ted" is a very distant second place, at 4%.

[Update, June 27, 10:22 A.M.: As of Wednesday, "Magic Mike's" share of ticket sales on Fandango had spiked to 53%, the spokesman said. "Brave" was 17% and "Ted" 7%.]

The disparity is notable given that pre-release surveys of potential moviegoers -- known as "tracking" in the industry -- indicates that "Ted" should have a strong opening weekend. It's expected to debut to about $40 million, compared with about $25 million for "Magic Mike."

However, "Magic Mike" studio Warner Bros. has been encouraging women to see the movie with friends, a strategy that appears to be working based on the digital pre-sales. Moviegoers are more likely to buy tickets ahead of time when planning to go to a film with a large group.

Small groups or couples are more likely to purchase their tickets at the theater.

In some ads for "Magic Mike," Warner Bros. tells fans to "tell your boyfriend you're going to book club."

It's for sure going to be the Underdog of the Weekend.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

It is getting good reviews but I don't think I'd go to the cinema to see this lol



Good reviews yess. But I don't want to pay $15 to see a bunch of men's asses on the big screen. Watchmen was the last time I would ever want to see a big dong on the big screen. Maybe on video. More interested in Ted.

Yes.



I had assumed Matthew McConaughey was well past his sell-by date. Not to say that i dislike him, but i just assumed his popularity was sort of gone.

Looks like it could be a good film I have to admit I haven't heard of it before this thread. Maybe a rental movie.
