'Magic Mike XXL' Gets a Release Date, Promises 'Stuff You'd Never See in a Movie Ever Again'

A release date of July 3 2015 has been set for "Magic Mike XXL", the sequel to Steven Soderbergh's surprise male stripper hit. Meanwhile, Channing Tatum revealed a few details about the film, which he is co-writing, after receiving the Trailblazer Award (no, we're not sure either) at Sunday's MTV awards.

"We don't want to make some dark drama" he told reporters. "There was some darkness in the last movie and I think it surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want to have a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a shit ton of fun. A shit ton of ridiculous stuff that you would never see in a movie, on the face of the earth, ever again".

With the film set to take the format of a road movie, Tatum may be referring to events that take place away from the stripping stage, but there can be no doubt that "Magic Mike XXL" will fully intend to beat its predecessor when it comes to the strip set pieces (and we're also betting the McConaughey character is going to be even more bat shit crazy).

It will be interesting to see how this one turns out - the previous film was a bit of a slam dunk from nowhere, highly praised by critics and finding a huge summer audience, despite not appearing to set out with the intention of pandering to either. This time round, people will be expecting much more. And then there are those who will be expecting little more than Matt Bomer covered in baby oil.

Can it possibly please everyone? Either way, this is one production we'll be keeping you updated on every step of the way.

    i dont think im better then anyone but i dont think what your doing is morally ethically right.

  • ken | April 18, 2014 1:32 PMReply

    i read it bc it was on my cousin's page and it made me sad. i wanted to see how everyone feels about this video. it made me quite sad whenever i saw this as well.

    actually, no i have not had sex in many many years now. would you like to ask my fiance. if a someone says they are a christian and they did that then they are not truly a christian. I wish you would show who you are. here is my fb page. search my fb page with my email. trackstar711@ymail com

    KEN-
    I don't give a shit about seeing this movie, because the 1st one sucked....to me.
    But you are not a parent to me or anyone else posting on here.
    It's funny how religious people think they're better than anyone..."eww! Don't do that, cuz I don't!"
    Who cares? Goody for You! Congrats on your future Wife ...which I hope you didn't have sex with, because that goes against the bible: sanctity of marriage and all.
    So just go off and be a super squeeky clean guy that follows the bible....or, at least, parts of it.....U know U boinked U'r fiance, you hypocrite...........and let everybody else do what they do, because in reality, you don't know them. They have no bearing on you.
    And, WAIT!!!
    WHY ARE YOU READING ABOUT MAGIC MIKE?!?!
    ARE U SOME KIND OF CLOSET HOMO???
    I think I just made a revelation people.
    Sinners tend 2 run 2 the bible 2 cover their tracks.
    Mm hmmm.....i get it now, sweet bum.
    ;-)
    carry on.

    and i agree with you dee, please grow up. are you a teenager? how old are you? this is teenage type stuff. it is not mature at all.

  • ken | April 17, 2014 11:41 PMReply

    Dee, I do not agree with what men do either. just because men do it it does not make it right. Where is people's morals and ethical value today? :( It makes me more sick when a man does it.

  • ken | April 17, 2014 11:38 PMReply

    it is funny how you all made it where i could not reply to your comments as well.

  • ken | April 17, 2014 11:36 PMReply

    it is sickening. tdoa and spot the fool. people made sex into something bad just like your doing. God gave us sex to reproduce and to carry out our generations and not to be perverted and have a desire for men whom are not our husband or wife. you will not catch me watching women like that. this just goes to show how shallow the world has become. no respect for yourselves. use to women acted like ladies. it is sad to see this type of thing. no dignity or class. i have too much respect for myself to watch porn. i have too much respect for my future wife.

  • Mai | April 16, 2014 6:03 PM

    ME!!! When I saw Channing Tatutm do that dance to Pony...I was speechless. Literally one of the sexiest things I've seen. Wow.

  • Haylee | April 16, 2014 3:13 PMReply

    I agree with these girls, Can I be the next main actress? I have personality and I definitely could have a fun time with this film! :)

    Search HayleeLynn on facebook, that is my fan page. I am a model. Feel free to check me out!

    I truly hope the main chick is not in this one! She was the most boring "actress" I have seen in my life. You should have a main actress that has personality and can show facial expressions.

  • RHONDA | April 17, 2014 1:41 AM

    SMILE HECK- DROOL FOOL

  • Mai | April 16, 2014 6:04 PM

    She was horrid...how could she watch Channing to that dance to Pony and not even crack a smile? My mouth was hanging open the whole time watching him. He is so sexy!!

  • sarah | April 16, 2014 2:52 PM

    OMG! My thoughts exactly! She was ridiculous! I mean you're talking to one of the sexiest men in the planet, SMILE! Good lord!

  • Aishah | April 16, 2014 2:05 PMReply

  • sunny shah | April 16, 2014 10:40 AMReply

    How to be a part of Hollywood?

  • Ken | April 16, 2014 9:11 AMReply

    I never knew women could be so perverted. I wonder if any of you even believe in God.

  • Melissa | April 16, 2014 3:10 PM

    I agree TDOA!

  • tdoa | April 16, 2014 2:52 PM

    So if you express sexual desire, what would you call it? And if you are lucky enough to have a woman in your life and are making love to her, is she supposed to lie there inert and expressionless? BTW "God" gave us sex, so I imagine that every time we have it we are honoring the gift he/she/it gave us!

  • Spot the fool | April 16, 2014 10:56 AM

    Women's expression of sexual desire = perverted. Move on, Ken.

  • ken | April 16, 2014 9:09 AMReply

    Absolutely sickening!!

  • Cindy | April 16, 2014 2:36 PM

    How is this any worse than what is on tv?

  • Laurie | April 16, 2014 6:10 AMReply

    Hopefully there's going to be more Matt Bomer in this film. He's much better looking than Channing Tatum.
