Second ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Trailer Has a Little Treat for Moviegoers [89 Screenshots]

The newest, full-length trailer for Magic Mike XXL asks, “Are you ready to be worshiped?” That’s because the bad boys from Tampa are looking to deliver on their promise of debauchery when they go on tour to the annual male stripper convention of course. Fifty Shades of Grey is child’s play. This summer, audiences will come to find themselves deeper within the world of male stripping than they ever thought possible. And Warner Bros. is going to start bringing the marketing fast and hard not withholding on any sexual innuendos.

Expanding on the loosely-based biopic of Channing Tatum’s life story, Magic Mike XXL looks like it will be more blockbuster and less a character study, which Steven Soderbergh had original built this franchise on. In the trailer we see Mike and his crew taking their talents on the road, strengthening their skills before they hit the big stripper convention. Think Comic-Con but with even more skin and oily dudes.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Magic Mike XXL courtesy of Warner Bros.:

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.

Directed by Gregory Jacobs, Magic Mike XXL stars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias, Andie Macdowell, Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jane McNeill, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, and Michael Strahan. This movie is set to hit theaters on July 1, 2015.
