Magic Mike XXL All Set To Lap-Dance Its Way Back To Theaters

Magic Mike XXL All Set To Lap-Dance Its Way Back To Theaters

It’s no ab-scam: The Magic Mike guys are back, and in the new Magic Mike XXL trailer — which you can watch below — it’s clear that stars Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer have been working on their moves.

In this first glimpse of the movie (which is due out July 1), Tatum’s titular stripper can be seen working in an industrial garage. But when we hear the familiar, thumping strains of Ginuwine’s “Pony,” he goes from welding to wilding out, busting out a slew of pop-and-lock moves. We then get quick glimpses of the Magic men at work, surrounded by flying bills and grinding girls.

There’s also barely a clue about a plot, and those connected to the project have remained relatively mum up to this point, although director-producer Gregory Jacobs does let a few things slip out. “It’s a road-trip picture. Mike and the guys get back together, and adventure ensues,” Jacobs tells PEOPLE, adding with a laugh: “They look incredible … Their shirts are off an appropriate amount, let’s put it that way! I don’t think anyone’s going to be disappointed.”

magic-mike-435x580Matthew McConaughey is out this time around, but that’s all right (all right, all right) because PEOPLE’s reigning Hottest Bachelor Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Tatum (obviously) and other fan favorites return for the reboot.

Joining the original cast members is a slew of new blood – including Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard, Michael Strahan and Elizabeth Banks – but Jacobs says fans will have to wait to see the film to find out what roles they play. “They’re part of who these guys meet along the way, and the reveal of that is really fun,” he says.

So what can moviegoers expect come July 4th weekend – aside from slicked up, synchronized half-naked man-dancing, that is?

“It’s dramatic and emotional but not as dark [as the first film],” Jacobs says. “It’s such a great group of people. We had a blast making it. I hope that comes across on screen.”

Check out the trailer below.

      @Chestnut, that is if silverbird or any of the other Nigerian cinema operators agree to showcase it.

      Also on the look out on whether or not they decide to show fifty shades of grey.

      Remember Nigeria’s film and video censors board needs to vet it before it can show and those guys are as hypocritical as hypocrisy itself in my books.

    If you want it, let’s do it
    Ride it, my pony
    My saddle is waiting
    Come and jump on it.

    Pony was the shit back in the day! I Was really young back then and me and my sisters use to the the “butterfly dance to it”

    Rihanna did a remake on her last album (Unapologetic) its one of my workout songs.

    The whole magic mike thing is a snooze fest to me, so I can’t say I’m looking forwrd to it. I will wait 4 chocolate city ( the one beckford and co is doing).

    speaking of Ginuwines’ Pony that song is the ultimate power bottom anthem, how a “straight” man compares himself to a pony,saddled and begging to be taken for a ride, w/o raising a few eye brows amazes me.
