Joe Manganiello's stripper documentary 'La Bare' has new, slightly depressing red-band trailer -- VIDEO

A new red-band trailer for La Bare, Joe Manganiello’s feature directorial debut following the men of the titular Dallas strip club that’s been in business since 1978, has hit. It starts with plenty of cowboy-hat-topped skin and choice quotes: “Even though every time I get a hug I  give ‘em a dollar, I still feel like they’re my friends,” says one happy customer. And then it gets real, addressing the murder of a dancer dubbed “the real Magic Mike.”

But before the buzz you imagine having when you go see this film is totally ruined, it’s back to more skin and cheeky language: “This summer get exposed… To a new kind of super hero… A different type of action… With romance… Adventure…And special effects.”

'Sabotage': Joe Manganiello talks new trailer (and not being recognized in a strip club scene) -- EXCLUSIVE

Sabotage.jpg

In Sabotage, the gritty new movie from End of Watch writer/director David Ayer hitting theaters March 28, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Prisoners‘ Terrence Howard, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, and The Killing‘s Mireille Enos star as members of a badass DEA task force who find themselves on a Mexican cartel’s hit list after $10 million goes missing in a bust. Check out our exclusive debut of the new trailer below.

Manganiello sees a certain horror movie structure to the film in that the team members are being hunted down one by one. And if you also watch the red band trailer, you’ll see there’s just as much blood. “David Ayer likes it dark, he likes it nasty,” Manganiello says. “[But] the violence in the movie is taken from what’s actually going in that world. The things that are done to people are gruesome and scary.”

Ayer encourages actors to bring something to the plate on set, and after spending about four months alongside real-life DEA agents as research, Manganiello literally had a notebook full of material. Hence him improvising a quip — “Clean-up, aisle three” — heard in the trailer. “That line is in response to a SWAT officer showing up on the scene and finding that we’ve now made a mess in his jurisdiction,” he says. “So I have this whole notebook full of sayings that these cops that I worked alongside and observed would say to each other, and a lot of them were dealing with the fact that when local cops and federal agents show up and there’s a shootout, the federal agents are allowed to leave the mess. They can get into a huge gunfight and just jump in their cars and take off, and then the locals are left to clean up.” READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2014: Joe Manganiello bares all about his male stripper doc 'La Bare' -- VIDEO

When Joe Manganiello filmed 2012′s Magic Mike with Stephen Soderbergh, he couldn’t help but think that the real world of male strippers would make a fascinating documentary. Fast-forward to 2014, and the True Blood actor’s directorial debut, La Bare, is premiering at Sundance.

Watch Joe and his brother, Nick Manganiello, talk to EW’s Sara Vilkomerson about the stripped-down doc (sorry) below:

Slamdance 2014: Joe Manganiello's male stripper doc bares all -- EXCLUSIVE TRAILER

La-Bare.jpg

True Blood star Joe Manganiello never thought he’d be making a documentary about male strippers. But after his turn as the firefighter-suit-clad dancer Big Dick Richie in Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike, he found himself wanting to know more about the club scene.

“I had zero interest in male stripping prior to Magic Mike. As a straight male, I had a lot of misperceptions about the industry,” Manganiello tells EW.  “I had a really good friend who once mumbled under his breath that he’d been a male dancer in the 90s. I just let that one go, I didn’t pry at all, I didn’t want to know anything. But when I got the offer from Steven to do Magic Mike, he was my first phone call. When I sat down with him, the stories that he told were nothing of what I expected, and really just mind-blowing. It was sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. It was the rock star lifestyle.”

Following Magic Mike, Manganiello and his brother Nick, who’s also his producing partner, decided to shoot some footage at Dallas male strip club La Bare and created a sizzle reel for what they thought was going to be a reality TV show. But urged by Soderbergh to tell a deeper story about the iconic Dallas dance club, they turned it into a documentary, La Bare, which premieres at the Slamdance Festival in Park City, Utah this week.

“People would walk out of Magic Mike saying  ‘I loved it but I wish there was more of the guys. I wish I knew more about them, where they live, who they go out with, what their lives are like.’ So I knew there was a lot left on the table,” Manganiello says of his inspiration for the documentary, which he funded with his own money.

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): Inside Joe Manganiello's five favorite 'Magic Mike' press tour moments

After the stripping numbers (which EW thoroughly dissected with the choreographer, costume designer, and music supervisor when the movie hit theaters last summer), what people probably remember most about Magic Mike is costar Joe Manganiello’s gloriously game, body roll-filled press tour. “There were a lot of moments where I was backstage right after whatever went down lookin’ at my publicist, Lisa [Perkins], like, I’m a classically-trained actor. What the f— am I doing? What are we doing? Please tell me I’m not insane and out of my mind. And Lisa would look at me and just go, ‘You are insane. You are out of your mind. But it’s working,’” Manganiello recalls, laughing. “It was one of those things where I’m either gonna look like the biggest a—hole that’s ever lived, or this is gonna be huge. There’s something magical that’s gonna happen, or I’m never gonna be allowed out of the house again. Thank god it went the way that we hoped.” Here, Manganiello takes us inside his highlights.

Joe Manganiello talks shooting David Ayer's gritty 'Ten' (and why it's already cut down on those body roll requests)

With Channing Tatum being named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, Magic Mike is back on the brain. But Joe Manganiello is confident that if fans see him now (pictured, via Twitter), as he shoots David Ayer’s Ten in Atlanta with Arnold Schwarzenegger, they would not ask him to do one of his famous body rolls. “Now I have a huge Unabomber beard, with cornrows and full-sleeve tattoos, and I’ve put on probably like 20 pounds. I look like a biker/murderer, which is really what I’m playing,” he tells EW. “So the body roll asks have subsided. People come up to me now, and they’re like, ‘Hey, I went to go get my car fixed and I’m pretty sure that they screwed me over. Can you go and talk to these people for me?’ That’s my request now. I’m sure after this movie comes out, people are gonna ask me to start killing people for money. Which I guess is a good thing. I’m an actor, so I’m supposed to change.” READ FULL STORY
