Are You Ready to be Exalted? New Trailer and Images for Magic Mike XXL
When Magic Mike became such a critical and box office success in 2012, audiences clamoured for more. The sequel Magic Mike XXL was officially announced last year with most of the main cast returning to the screen, led by Magic Mike himself Channing Tatum.
Set three years after Mike left the stripper game at his prime; the film finds the remaining Kings of Tampa also ready to throw in the towel. They want to do it their way though, so they plan to have one last legendary performance with Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. As the guys set off on their road trip, the film promises that they all learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.
Alongside Tatum are Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias as the Kings of Tampa, joined by fellow newcomers Elizabeth Banks, Amber Heard and Jada Pinkett Smith, the latter filling the role of Matthew McConaughey’s Dallas as the guys’ new mouthpiece.
Despite the absence of McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer who are confirmed to not be in the sequel, the film is set to be steamier, provide more of the same slick choreography, and gritty, honest portrayal of life as a male stripper.
What’s also evident is that the marketing department at Warner Bros is clearly having a ball when it comes to the new trailer; with hashtags such as #ComeAgain, the film is being marketed as playful, cheeky but ultimately very self-aware. The sequel is sure to include a lot of shirtless attractive guys so check out the new cast posters below and watch the new trailer here
Magic Mike XXL is in cinemas across the UK on July 3rd.
