As if one film about Channing Tatum and the rest of his muscled friends stripping off in routine wasn’t enough, we’re getting Magic Mike XXL this summer and Warner Bros. has just released a brand spanking (sorry…) new trailer and a hilarious Star Wars style poster for the film.
Tatum is reprising his role as the hotshot stripper of the title and is rejoined by the likes of Joe Mangianello, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash and Gabriel Iglesias, although there’s no Matthew McConaughey this time around – sorry ladies (and guys)! They are joined by new cast members including Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard, Andie McDowell, Jada Pinkett Smith and Michael Strahan. Wow, talk about growing in size!
Behind the Candelabra producer Gregory Jacobs is directing and producing the sequel (taking over from Steven Soderbergh) with the script being written by Tatum himself alongside fellow producer Reid Caroline.
Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, Magic Mike XXL finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.
Check out the trailer and the amazing Star Wars-themed poster below:
