Watch: Trailer for Channing Tatum's 'Magic Mike'

The recent poll on summer's most anticipated movies left out an obvious title, at least for us: Channing Tatum's stripper movie "Magic Mike."

Slated for a June 29 release, "Magic Mike" has had quite a build-up, between the slow reveal of the cast to the first stills to the teaser trailer that hit the Web earlier this week.

On Thursday, we finally got to see the full show. And despite what the plot implies, the two-and-a-half minute clip is actually fairly free of nudity.
