Today, as Channing Tatum's salacious stripper flick Magic Mike struts into theaters, the web is flooded with related headlines and plenty of pictures of the pec-tacular male cast. Seeing the fervor that Magic Mike is causing among female audiences, the savvy marketing folks over at Magnolia are taking advantage, choosing today to unveil a steamy scene from Fernando Meirelles's ensemble drama 360 that flaunts some man flesh of its own to promote the pic's iTunes release.
Two-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon) wrote the complicated interwoven stories of several individuals with different backgrounds but unexpected personal connections. The follow-up to Meirelles's underwhelming drama Blindness, 360 boasts an incredible cast that also includes Anthony Hopkins, Jude Law, and Ben Foster. We shared the first trailer earlier this month, and now Vulture's got a clip from Rachel Weisz's arc that it so too hot to be SFW—thanks to the gorgeous and fiercely flirtatious Juliano Cazarré. See it here.
Another clip from this mysterious feature focuses on the plotline of Hopkin's character, who becomes enchanted with a young Brazilian woman, played by Gabriela Marcinkova.
And this last clip shows Foster playing a convict recently released, who also crosses paths with Marcinkova's lovely traveler.
Despite it's trio of clips and kinetic trailer, it's difficult to see how these pieces fit together, making the mystery of 360 all the more enticing.
360 is now available on iTunes an VOD; a limited theatrical release will follow on August 3rd. To learn more about the film, check out our Blend Film Database.
