Online ticket service Fandango reported on Tuesday that Magic Mike is already generating 36 precent of all pre-sale business, a sure sign that females are making set plans to see the film (there also was big pre-sale business for Sex and the City).

THR on WB marketing [MGCMK] to Moms and Gays   Antibody on Jun 26, 12:17

nice... i wonder how big is gay population in the wonderful US of A? {nm}   Oleg Max on Jun 26, 12:24

1 in 10, isn't it? {nm}   numbersix_99 on Jun 26, 13:27

Around one in 100 to one in 200. That 10% is from Kinsey and totally discredited. So at most 3.5 million men. who might or might not be    forlorne on Jun 26, 13:37

Maybe meant 1-in-10 movie goers. ;-) {nm}   elchan on Jun 26, 13:49

Well, wait a minute...   christopher451 on Jun 29, 18:07

fwiw, the hard-to-please Jeffrey Wells loved it.   Antibody on Jun 26, 12:27

Is there something we should know about J. Wells? Hmmmm... {nm}   PVL Admin on Jun 26, 15:34

Two other good performing movies Berlesque($39M) and Stripetease($33M) had major star power behind them.   elchan on Jun 26, 13:48

That's apples and oranges.. Burlesque was a PG13 musical.. Striptease is better..but it made 12.3 on its OW {nm}   dioneta on Jun 26, 14:27

According to this source Striptease opened @ $33M. They're probably wrong, as it does seem high.   elchan on Jun 26, 14:37

33M was the total domestic. I would also say that women will see movies about naked women more than men will see movies about naked men {nm}   dioneta on Jun 26, 15:02

Well, said. Also, I question the how many gay men, are going to out themselves, by insisting on going to see this movie for the "plot". {nm}   elchan on Jun 26, 15:06

I don't see it as an "outing" issue. Just a numbers issue. Its an R-rated film about male strippers. The ceiling seems limited {nm}   dioneta on Jun 26, 15:09

Uh-oh. Don't say R-rated movies with offbeat subject matter have limited audiences. I hinted at that yesterday and they tore me a new one.   Dave3626 on Jun 26, 16:54

It's probably proportional to the men that get Playboy for the "articles". {nm}   PVL Admin on Jun 26, 15:47

It has articles? {nm}   Dave3626 on Jun 26, 16:56
