For all the Channing Tatum lovers out there, we’ve got some great news: the first Magic Mike XXL trailer will drop online tomorrow! Wanna hear something even better? To whet your appetite for all the gyration, pop ’n’ lock dance moves and Man of Steel-worthy abs to come, Tatum has unleashed the first Magic Mike XXL poster unto the world.
This Magic Mike XXL poster - which comes to us from Coming Soon, really has everything a fan could ask for: Tatum baring his chest with his crotch front and center. But the cherry on top of this new poster is the "Coming" artfully imposed on top of his Johnson. All we’ve seen of the film so far is some sporadic leaked photos of the set that show off a shirted Magic Mike moving furniture into a building and a bunch of the other guys palling around on the beach. While all that’s fine and dandy, we’ve been waiting for some action from the main attraction, and this poster delivers.
We’ll get to see Tatum return to his glorious titular Magic Mike character when the trailer for the sequel debuts tomorrow on The Ellen Show. The renown comedienne has been a strong supporter of the film, and has been providing Warner Bros. with massive amounts of free publicity. She once had a sexy "gardener" named Nick (though, his real name Billy Reilich), who would come on the show to be eye candy. Thanks to his shirtless shenanigans and a push from Ellen herself, he landed a role in Magic Mike XXL. So, long story short, Ellen is the perfect place to debut the first Magic Mike XXL trailer.
All our favorites will be back in the saddle for the upcoming sequel — everyone, that is, except for Matthew McConaughey, who’s too busy being an Oscar-winning actor to strut his stuff in the buff. But aside from Tatum, we also have Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias rejoining the pack, while franchise newcomers Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heart, Andie MacDowell, Jada Pinkett Smith and Michael Strahan are also getting in on the action. Magic Mike XXL takes place three years after the main King of Tampa hung up his G-string, but there’s always room for one final blowout. The crew gets back together for a road trip to Myrtle Beach for a final reunion of epic proportions. They’ll be making some pitstops along the way, which is where some of these new faces will likely come into play.
The first Magic Mike movie was such a hit that Warner Bros. couldn’t possibly say no to a sequel. While Magic Mike XXL won’t have Steven Soderbergh in the director’s seat, everything seems to be in good hands, as his protege Gregory Jacobs has taken the gig. We just hope the film is as full of sexual references as this poster is. Give the people what they want, right?
