The first Magic Mike XXL trailer proves Channing Tatum still has it
I’m not sure MAGIC MIKE was a movie we really needed a sequel to, but you can’t argue with the film’s success. So naturally, why not make a sequel? It looks like most of the gang is back for seconds, except for Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer. Good riddance to Alex Pettyfer, but I thought McConaughey’s Dallas was actually a bright spot in the original. But the important thing is that we get Channing Tatum and company back and it once again seems they can’t find their shirts. And of course we get a heavy dose of Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’, which seems to be the inspiration for Magic Mike’s return.
We don’t have an official synopsis yet, but we do know that the second outing will feature Magic Mike and his stripper pals on a sort of road trip, which should give them plenty of opportunities to get into trouble. MAGIC MIKE XXL stars Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Amber Heard, Elizabeth Banks, Matt Bomer, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Andie McDowell, Donald Glover and Gabriel Inglesias. MAGIC MIKE XXL hits theaters on July 1st.
