His story reads like a script from a movie: Small town boy, saddled with debt, turns to stripping to make extra cash while he figures out what he wants to do with his life. He becomes good at shedding his clothes for men and women, moves to the big city, and his career as a stripper takes off. But for this 31-year-old Logan Square resident, who goes by the stage name "Blake," the limelight hasn't always been kind. His first time on stage, in 2004, he made $11. "Seven dollars of it was from a guy. It was awful.

The trailer for "Magic Mike," aka The Channing Tatum Stripper Movie, was unleashed on the Internet on Thursday. While it's slightly less revealing than we'd hoped, this is a preview after all.
