The new ‘Magic Mike XXL’ trailer reminds us of one thing: Jenna Dewan Tatum is one. lucky. lady. Channing tweeted out the poster for the sequel and he’s literally never looked hotter.
Thank you, Channing Tatum. On Feb. 3, the 34-year-old actor took to Instagram to share the first snap from the Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike XXL, and let’s just say we’re getting eXXXcited for the movie — and for more of his incredible body.
‘Magic Mike XXL’ Poster
“Look, but you can’t touch…until tomorrow. Tune in to @theellenshow! #MagicMikeXXL,” Channing wrote as the caption on his Instagram post. On Feb. 4, the actor will appear on Ellen to debut the trailer — and does that mean we can somehow touch him?
Sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself here. In the poster for the movie, Channing looks very Mike mixed with Step Up in tight jeans (which we assume are tear-aways), no shirt, a bandana around his neck, and a flat brimmed hat pulled over his eyes.
The date of the film’s release — July 1st, was strategically placed where he was pointing. Yes, exactly where you’re thinking.
The Sequel Is ‘A Stripper Odyssey’
“This is a road trip movie,” Channing told ET Online about the movie, which he actually also co-wrote and produced.”It’s an odyssey, we like to call it. It’s like The Iliad. It’s a stripper odyssey.”
Other notables from the first film returning for the sequel are Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Gabriel Iglesias, while there are a ton of newcomers: Amber Heard, Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett Smith and Donald Glover, and Michael Strahan to name a few.
So basically, we’re beginning to countdown the days until July 1 right now — It’s 145 by the way. Are you excited for the film, HollywoodLifers? And more importantly, do you love Channing’s abs?
