Channing Tatum's Magic Mike XXL stripper sequel trailer just dropped the other day and it is all that we imagined it to be. If you didn't catch it, here it is again:

Oh, I'm so incredibly grateful that Tatum has an entire film series just based around abs!

We just can't get enough of the gorgeous star and this month, thankfully Tatum has similarly been parading his ripped bod on the front cover of this month's Hollywood edition of Vanity Fair, albeit slightly more clothed...

Posing with Amy Adams and Reese Witherspoon, he fits in particularly well with the theme of “young but established stars showing off old-school glamour."

Indeed, Channing looks dashing in a bespoke white tie with the ladies evoking Old Hollywood glamour in their gold and red gowns.

Take a look:

It's all the more fantastic because it clearly also shows Amy physically trying to MOUNT Channing! Despite trying to keep his cool, he's totally feeling smug about having the starlet drape herself around him.

Apparently, Channing even joked "I'm wearing Amy Adams!"

What do you guys think?

If you're interested in which stars also took part in the infamous magazine cover, which is shot annually, here they are.

From left to right, you can see: Adams, Tatum, Witherspoon, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), David Oyelowo (Selma), Benedict Cumberbatch, Sienna Miller, Oscar Isaac, and Miles Teller (Whiplash).

It all looks like a very cozy affair indeed, with arms and legs all over the place and Cumberbatch basically looking as if he might topple over at any moment!

Annie Leibovitz, who shot the stars, agreed that the shoot was very intimate. She said:

"Usually you shoot from fairly far away, but we wanted to get really close to the actors [...] We made an effort to create a feeling of intimacy. I pushed into them, shooting to the left and then the right, coming in as tight as I could."

Vanity Fair has kindly provided behind-the-scene images on their website, to give us an idea of the shoot process and what the stars were up to in-between takes:

Reese and Amy had a quick catch-up.

Eddie and Miles calmed each others nerves before stepping in front of the camera.

Amy prepared to lie on top of Channing.

Channing tried out his high stool before the ladies stepped onto the scene.

Benedict and Oscar bided some time playing table tennis in the car park.

Whilst Felicity received some last minute touch-ups!

It looked like a fabulous day... wouldn't I have liked to be a fly on that wall!


What do you think of the saucy cover!?
