A new trailer has dropped for Magic Mike XXL, giving us plenty of flaunt-worthy footage from the anticipated sequel.
The first picture raked in over $167 million worldwide on a budget of just $7 million, a result that came from a nice balance of eye candy and strong characterisation. It’s hard to tell just how much character-driven drama we’re going to be getting this time around, but it certainly looks like fun. Fingers crossed Magic Mike’s second chapter really is XXL, and not just in the looks department.
Magic Mike XXL, starring Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Elizabeth Banks, Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Donald Glover, Andie MacDowell, and Michael Strahan, hit the U.S. on July 1 and will hit Australian cinemas on July 9.
Official synopsis for Magic Mike XXL:
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.
