Get ready for some "Magic McConaughey Mike." Matthew McConaughey, who's newly married to Brazilian model Camila Alves, is starring as Dallas in the new film "Magic Mike" alongside Channing Tatum, who actually plays Magic Mike (though who doesn't think McConaughey is pretty magical?). And the movie is about male strippers. Let the summer fun begin! Until the film opens June 29, check out a few early reviews and watch this interview with Tatum and McConaughey, as they talk about "manscaping," their scandalous onscreen moves, and McConaughey's recent marriage. The film also stars Olivia Munn, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, and Matt Bomer. Will you see it? Does it sound sexy or silly -- or both?

Check this out, if you wanna have some fun. The British pop group the Spice Girls, which formed in 1994, is back together; this time, to launch a musical featuring their music (remember their 1996 hit "Wannabe" that just might be stuck in your head now that it's been mentioned?). "Viva Forever!" will debut in the West End of London on Dec. 11, 2012. Pictured below (from left): Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, scriptwriter Jennifer Saunders, Geri Halliwell, producer Judy Craymer, Emma Bunton, and Victoria Beckham during a photo call at a central London hotel on June 26 to launch their new project. The group previously reunited for a tour in 2007 after they broke up in 2000.
