Warner Bros. has released a new Magic Mike XXL trailer for the upcoming sequel. Gregory Jacobs takes over the director’s chair from Steven Soderbergh this time around, as Channing Tatum’s titular character and his buddies hit the road for one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach.
While it appears like the sequel may have done away with the American Dream subtext of the original, the movie also looks like it’s plenty of fun, and the trailer does a good job of pumping up the hype. Blockbusters may provide plenty of explosions, but that doesn’t mean Magic Mike XXL won’t be explosive. The cast is clearly having a blast, and I hope that carries over into the full film.
Watch the new Magic Mike XXL trailer below. The film also stars Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Elizabeth Banks, Jada Pinkett Smith, Donald Glover, Andie MacDowell, and Michael Strahan. Magic Mike XXL opens in theaters on July 1st.
Here’s the official synopsis for Magic Mike XXL:
Picking up the story three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, “Magic Mike XXL” finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.
