Six new clips from the upcoming sequel Magic Mike XXL have been released this week, and if you weren’t excited enough then you should set your eyes at some of these teasers, as we look forward to 115 more minutes of half-naked men strutting their stuff.
Channing Tatum returns to star in the sequel to the 2012 dance drama Magic Mike. This time directed by Emmy Award winner Gregory Jacobs (Behind the Candelabra), the story picks up three years later as stripper Magic Mike, who bowed out of the game in the end of the first film, finds the remaining Kings of Tampa ready to throw in their towels too. But they want to do it their way: by giving one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, with the legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight.
The new clips highlight various stages of the film, as the guys go on the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances, make new friends, learn some new moves, and shake off the past in surprising ways.
Here are the new clips:
