Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to Steven Soderbergh’s critically acclaimed 2012 comedy-drama Magic Mike, hits theaters on July 1st, 2015. In anticipation, the first trailer has premiered online. Watch it below.
For this film, Soderbergh is replaced in the director’s chair by Gregory Jacobs, whose past credits include Ocean’s Twelve and Contagion. (Soderbergh acted as cinematographer.) Not only does Channing Tatum portray the titular male dancer, but he also co-wrote the entire script alongside Reid Carolin. The film’s cast also includes Donald Glover, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett-Smith, comedian Gabriel Iglesias, and pro wrestler Kevin Nash.
The plot finds Magic Mike and his crew of male dancers on a road trip to a stripper’s convention in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. No doubt endless hilarity ensues. Sans shirts, of course.
