We absolutely loved MAGIC MIKE, hence we are even more pumped about MAGIC MIKE XXL for all the obvious reasons! Although Gregory Jacobs takes over direction from Steven Soderbergh here, this looks to be every bit as sultry and entertaining as the first. This new Poster for perhaps one of the most anticipated Sequels in quite some time, cleverly places the words “COMING” right in Channing Tatum‘s nether-regions. Calm down, now Ladies…
Three years after Mike retired from stripping, he bumps into his former Kings of Tampa friends, who appear burned out from performing.
Ken (Matt Bomer), Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello) and Tito (Adam Rodriguez) collectively decide to throw in the towel and leave Myrtle Beach with a bang. While on the road to their final shows in Jacksonville and Savannah, the crew reunites with old friends, pick up a few new girls and a few new dance moves along the way.
Amber Heard, Andie MacDowell and Elizabeth Banks join the Cast.

See the brand new Trailer. We’re getting major Flashdance vibes from the beginning of it!

This actually looks pretty awesome! If the Cast of Sabotage is any indication of how great it could be, then expect this Action Flick to be amazing! David Ayer (End of Watch) directs and co-writes.
The head of an elite DEA Task Force (Arnold Schwarzenegger) leads his Agents in a drug bust that yields millions of dollars. But he then turns on his own Men when he suspects that one of them is behind a vicious string of murders haunting his Unit following the Cartel take-down.
Sabotage also stars Terrence Howard, Olivia Williams, Joe Manganiello, Mireille Enos, Harold Perrineau and Sam Worthington! Where in the World has Sam Worthington been of late? Welcome back!

Ice Cream may sure cool you down, but Joe Manganiello certainly will turn your temperatures up! The Actor best known for his work on top-rated HBO Series True Blood and Magic Mike is in Toronto today doing Press for Magnum Ice Cream, which in previous years has brought in Talent like Ivanka Trump and Rachel Bilson for their introduction to the Canadian market.
Arriving last night in the City, Manganiello made visits bright and early before 7:00 AM to City‘s Breakfast Television, where Fans outside the Studio were delighted to get free samples from him. He later head over to Canada AM at CTV‘s Studios in Scarborough and then taped an Interview, to air at a later date on Global Television‘s The Morning Show, where I caught-up with him quickly, looking extremely sharp in a light gray Suit. Watch his Breakfast Television Appearance here.
Later tonight, Manganiello will visit the Magnum Pleasure Store on 11 Bloor Street West for its launch and he and his Entourage earlier today were spotted on Bloor Street walking over to the temporary Shop, which was covered-up and closed for business in preparation of tonight’s Festivities. Performers from the Cirque du Soleil also will appear tonight. The Store opens till July 28, 2013.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Manganiello and Channing Tatum on the Toronto Stop-off of the Magic Mike Press Tour last Spring. Read more here.
A year ago, a few eyebrows might’ve been raised with the talk of there being a Steven Soderbergh Male Stripper Film in development. Magic Mike as that Film now is known, will soon be revealed – pardon the pun – amidst the 2012 Summer rush of Blockbusters. I mean, we’ve all heard of 1995’s delicious and unintentionally-laughable Showgirls, but much still is left to be accomplished in Films of the ever-tricky Stripping genre. Stars Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello (pronounced with a hard “g”) both arrived in Toronto today for the Canadian leg of Magic Mike‘s Press Tour.
The Dramedy brings together Tatum and Soderbergh a second time, after having seen the release earlier this year of Mixed Martial Arts-inspired Action Flick Haywire. This time around, the Action we see is of a whole different variety – the variety which surely you might have seen in that Clip on the Internet of Tatum gyrating onstage back in his pre-Actor days as a Stripper. You know you clicked “refresh” on that. Don’t lie.
Magic Mike follows a Man in his 30s (Tatum) who is at a turning point in his life after making quick cash – and stacks of it – as a Stripper. Although he is successful at what he does, we soon begin to see the repercussions of this choice on his love life and ability to achieve his own dreams as an Entrepreneur. Along the way, we get to know a mix of Characters in his all-male Dance Revue. We meet the Mastermind behind it all Dallas (Matthew McConaughey), Ken (Matt Bomer), Big Dick Richie (Mangniello) and Newcomer The Kid (Alex Pettyfer). Matters become complicated when Mike falls for Paige (Cody Horn – Daughter of Warner Bros. President Alan F. Horn), who happens to be The Kid‘s grounded Older Sister.
On Horn‘s Character, Paige, Tatum reveals that her early beginnings in the Film actually are based on his own real-life Sister of the same name. “She’s a beautiful, strong-willed Woman”, he tells us. “I didn’t have to get my Boys when I got into a fight in the neighbourhood. I’d be like ‘Yo! Let me go get my Sister!’, drawing laughs from the intimate group of Journalists – some unable to contain their excitement for him. “Huge Fan here”, one admits to him.
