2012’s Magic Mike was a left field smash loosely based on Channing Tatum’s experiences as a ‘male entertainer.’ It was smart, witty and filled with intriguing characters – not to mention some amazing dancing.
Magic Mike XXL has all of the above except for the smart and the witty. The guys are still kinda fun, but the script really seems rushed and thin. Of course, most of the target demo will only be there for the dancing and stripping, but if they want anything more, they will be disappointed.
One of the more surprising hits of the last couple years, Magic Mike – loosely based on Channing Tatum’s days as a stripper – was not only a great little indie, it performed like a blockbuster. Obviously a sequel was called for.
Today, Warner Bros. released the first teaser trailer for Magic Mike XXL. Check it out after the jump. Magic Mike XXL opens on July 1st.
