Look, the people behind Magic Mike XXL know what the fans want. And they certainly delivered with a readily GIF-able trailer packed with abs, body rolls, and Ginuwine’s “Pony.”
The trailer begins with Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike doing some welding (as one does) to the sounds of the aforementioned song, a callback to the first film. That transforms into a full on dance number (as it does). Director Greg Jacobs has told Indiewire’s The Playlist that the sequel is a “road trip movie,” and while the teaser doesn’t give us much information by way of plot, we do see various scenes of partying and highly choreographed stripping. Matt Bomer’s Ken is sandwiched between multiple women; Joe Manganiello’s Big Dick Richie has some fun with liquid.
Just before the trailer ends Mike introduces himself to a girl. “Magic,” he says, and starts to spin. “Magic Mike.”
