As Jada Pinkett Smith so eloquently says, “It’s not bro time, it’s showtime.” Time to make it rain again, bitches!!!
The second teaser trailer for Magic Mike XXL just dropped. It still doesn’t give away too many plot details, but does it really matter? I’d pay just to see Channing Tatum and his brigade of greased exotic dancers grind the floor (and me hopefully) for two hours. The new promo does, however, introduce us to Smith’s character. She’s the male revue’s hype
man woman, standing in for a MIA Matthew McConnaughey.
In other Magic Mike-related news, the studio released the Star Wars-inspired poster above a few days ago, on the faux May The Fourth Be With You holiday. “They’ve got all the force you need,” tweeted the film’s official Twitter. Check out the teaser trailer #2 below.
Channing Tatum, Adam Rodriguez and Stephen tWitch Boss have all graced their own Magic Mike XXL character poster. It’s about time Matt Bomer gets his own artwork.
The 37-year-old actor shows off his abs for #MagicMondays. I fully expect Joe Manganiello to strut his stuff next on #HumpDay this Wednesday.
Magic Mike XXL grinds its way into theaters on July 1. What do you think of Bomer’s character poster? How does it stack up against the others? Weigh in below.
When Warner Bros released Channing Tatum’s character poster for Magic Mike XXL using the hashtag #MagicMondays, I assumed that the artwork for the rest of the cast would follow on subsequent Mondays. Guess I was wrong.
The studio debuted ones for Adam Rodriguez and Stephen Boss better known as tWitch this week as well. Rodriguez’s hit online Wednesday with #HumpDay and today we get tWtich’s accompanied with the hashtag #TGIF. I’m kinda curious to see what hashtags the PR team comes up with for Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello’s.
Magic Mike XXL gyrates into theaters on July 1, 2015. Check out the other character poster below. BTW. I think Adam is hot, but not feeling his new hairstyle in the film. No bueno.
Did you watch the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday? How fine did Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez and Matt Bomer look as they presented the Best Scared-As-S**t Performance award to Jennifer Lopez? I can’t wait to see these studs grinding their hips once again on the big screen on July 1, 2015.
Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed Tatum’s character poster for the hotly anticipated sequel Magic Mike XXL. It comes with the hashtag #MagicMondays which probably means the studio will be unveiling each character’s artwork the following Mondays. Check out Channing’s below and in case you’ve missed it, I’ve also embedded the teaser trailer.
Rumblings about a musical version of Channing Tatum’s male stripper flick first surfaced last summer. Given it’s surprising lucrative box office run, it was a no-brainer all parties involved searched for different revenue streams to milk more dollars from horny women and gay men. Naturally, a big song and dance number came to mind. A year after Tatum first teased about it, Magic Mike, The Musical is officially a thing now. The 33-year-old actor confirmed the news earlier this week via Twitter.
Steven Soderbergh, producer and director of Magic Mike, along with Tatum have enlisted a top creative team to adapt the film into a Broadway musical. Deadline.com reports Next to Normal’s Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey will write the songs and Glee writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will write the book. In addition to fast tracking the project to the Great White Way stage, a sequel is also in the works.
If both ventures prove successful, Tatum just might overtake Robert Downey, Jr on Forbes’ Highest-Paid Actors List. While we wait for both projects to come to fruition, check out my favorite scene from the original film below.
With Steven Soderbergh announcing his plans to retire from the industry, who will direct the sequel to Magic Mike? Channing Tatum answered that and revealed other juicy details about the follow up to his surprise hit stripper flick.
During his promotional obligations for White House Down, the 33-year-old actor told the Hollywood Reporter that his producing partner Reid Carolin and he would direct it or Greg Jacobs would helm it. Just in case you don’t know who Jacobs is, he’s been Soderbergh’s right-hand man for almost 25 movies and worked as a producer on Magic Mike. Find out the other major reveal below.
Yes and no. The 23-year-old Brit did film a scene as Christian Grey, but he wasn’t auditioning for the coveted role. Instead it was a screen test for Gus Van Sant (Milk & Good Will Hunting). According to The Wrap, Van Sant filmed a scene in a bid to direct the film adaptation of E L James’ best-selling erotic novel.
The scene he selected was a steamy one. It involved Pettyfer’s kinky billionaire character taking Anastasia Steele’s virginity. What I would give to take a sneak peek at that video. You know 100% Pettyfer was most likely butt naked in it. And if you saw Magic Mike, he certainly has a nice ass.
Whether Van Sant snags the directing gig or not, it gives a sense of what kind of director Universal is looking for. Even though they forked over $3 million for the movie rights, no director or stars are attached to the highly-anticipated project. Though numerous names have been dropped.
Pettyfer wouldn’t be my first pick to play the womanizer Christian Grey. I much prefer Stephen Amell (Arrow), who reportedly had a meeting about the role. That said, Alex has that cocky attitude that’s kinda sexy. Since we probably will never see his Gus Van Sant-directed clip, I thought I’d share my favorite scene from Magic Mike. Check it out below.
Both hail from the United Kingdom and both are celebrating birthdays today (April 10). In honor of their special day, I thought I’d pit these two studs against each other in our latest Who’d You Rather battle. They may be a decade apart, but these two are equally sexy and handsome. After checking out the following evidence (shirtless photos), be sure to cast your verdict in the poll. Who do you want to give the birthday bumps to?
Alex Pettyfer made a huge splash in 2011. The 23-year-old actor starred in three films- I Am Number Four (Dianna Agron), Beastly (Vanessa Hudgens) and In Time (Justin Timberlake). Personally, I didn’t get the hype until I saw him practically bottoming for Matthew McConnaughey during a stripping tutorial in Magic Mike. Instantly, I became a fan. He can next be seen later this year in Butler starring Robin Williams and James Marsden. Pettyfer also modeled for Burberry in 2008-2009.
Charlie Hunnam gained a huge gay following after appearing in the UK version of Queer as Folk. Now, the 33-year-old is best known for playing Jax Teller on Sons of Anarchy. His film credits include Nicholas Nickleby (Anne Hathaway), Cold Mountain (Jude Law), and Children of Men (Clive Owen). Hunnam will headline this summer’s sci-fi flim, Pacific Rim. Charlie was previously married to actress Katharine Towne but divorced in 2002.
