Magic Mike


Channing Tatum is bringing the heat this summer.

In anticipation of Magic Mike XXL's July 1 release date, Warner Bros. teased a new picture of Tatum via Twitter. "There's nothing like a little tease to start your week off right. Want the full body experience? Follow @MagicMikeMovie on @Snapchat for more starting this morning…" the studio wrote on Tumblr.

Snapchat users got to see the shirtless star before anyone else.

Not everyone uses the Snapchat app, however, so Tatum gave the people what they wanted by sharing the poster on Twitter. "All day. All night. #MagicMikeXXL," the 34-year-old actor tweeted.

How will the movie differ from its 2012 predecessor?

"No plot," Tatum jokes in Entertainment Weekly's Apr. 17/24, 2015 issue. "Just a bunch of naked dudes sitting around doing dude stuff. We read all the message boards, and people were like, 'Less story. Less plot. Just dudes' things.' And we listened to that."

In addition to Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez also reprise their roles. "Basically, we all were taking penis-enlargement pills sine the last one, so we weren't worried about what temperature the room was when we came out to do our dances," he jokes. "That's what XXL means."

Directed by Gregory Jacobs, the first film's assistant director, Magic Mike XXL follows Mike (Tatum) as he and his stripper pals as embark on a road trip headed to a stripper convention in Myrtle, Beach. S.C.

Several actors, including Cody Horn, Riley Keough, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn and Alex Pettyfer, will not reprise their roles from the first film.

However, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard, Gabriel Iglesias, Andie Macdowell, Jane McNeill, Jada Pinkett Smith, Michael Strahan and Max Webster will each play new characters in the stripper sequel.
