The first official trailer for Magic Mike XXL is here, and trust me when I say that it does not disappoint.
If I needed any further convincing to see this movie - and let's be honest, I did not - in all of its two minute and eleven second glory, the trailer has me antsy with anticipation. Check it out below and revel in its greatness:
The Gregory Jacobs directed summer flick brings back some familiar faces (Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Gabriel Iglesias) as well as introducing us to some new ones (Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Donald Glover, Stephen Boss, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Strahan).
Because this trailer is so much fun, let's break it down and show a few of the (many) highlights:
The boys are back in town
And this time, they're going to a convention
A stripping convention, apparently.
They make some lady friends along the way
Yes, that is Andie MacDowell...
And Jada Pinkett Smith...
And Elizabeth Banks!
"It's not brawl time, it's showtime. Are you guys ready?"
I most certainly am.
The best thing about the Magic Mike movies is that they really don't take themselves too seriously. Everyone involved knows what they're about and takes full advantage of it, in the best possible way! For that reason, the hashtag they've chosen to work with is "#comeagain."
I don't know about you, but this movie looks like a fun summer movie that will heat audiences up while they're trying to cool down.
Magic Mike XXL will be released in theaters on July 1.
