Sex sells. If you haven't figured that out by now, then you're clearly not paying attention to the latest crop of Hollywood flicks set to hit theaters during the steamiest of summer months.
And the boys of the summer do not disappoint. Whether getting their superhero on, saving the world from vampires or stripping, these gents are the definition of mantastic. But which dudes are your favorite fellas at the box office this summer—it's time to sound off:
Remember, each day we present a new category of summer fun (feel free to send us worthy suggestions) and you will let us know who's the best of the best. When the week's out, we'll reveal the hottest of the hot in a brand, spankin' new gallery.
Now back to the movies…
First up is the action-packed gang of The Avengers. Sure, Scarlett Johansson may have been a part of the superhero showdown (in all her skintight spandex glory), but she definitely took a backseat to the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo.
The movie only made a gajillion dollars and secured each of the guys an action figure—if they didn't have one already, that is—as well as spinoffs and sequels galore. Who knew capes and sexiness were such a good match?
Then there's the most anticipated male-stripper movie since…well, ever, probably! Of course we're talking about Magic Mike, which will secure Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and (our fave) Matt Bomer a spot in the G-string hall of fame.
We're expecting skin-on-skin-on-skin from this flick and (finally!) it won't be from the females. We think it's safe to say the movie should come with a warning that all those abs may cause frequent fainting.
Then there's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which might not seem like the most lust-worthy movie. That is, until you look at it this way: Benjamin Walker? Sexy. Kicking ass and taking names? Sexy. And vampires? Well, they're not the hunky True Blood type, but they're still cool.
But doesn't everyone like a man in office—not to mention the Oval Office? Plus, you know what they say about a guy with a tall, tall hat.
And what better way to approach the end of summer (aka the saddest part of the year) than with Jeremy Renner's Bulging Biceps—um, scratch that, the movie is called Bourne Legacy. All we'll say is this: Who knew we'd be totally OK with Matt Damon getting overshadowed by his own Bourne legacy.
The tough call is now in your hands: Which movie features the most mantastic men of summer?!
