Magic Mike XXL: What You Need To Know

One of the year’s most-anticipated sequels and a box office smash, Magic Mike XXL hits DVD shelves on Monday (November 30th) and here is everything you need to know about it…

 

What’s The Plot?

It’s three years after the first movie and Mike has given up stripping and is now running a successful furniture business. Working late one night Mike receives a call from one of his old stripper buddies and is shocked to hear that Dallas, his former boss, is gone. Thinking he’s dead he goes to visit his friends, only to discover that he has in fact bailed on them for another show, a departure that has convinced the gang to end their careers on a high note by traveling to Myrtle Beach for a stripping convention. Initially reluctant, Mike is eventually persuaded to join them and they set off for the convention and the adventure of a lifetime.

Who’s In It?

The likes of Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias are all back for the sequel and they are joined by The Hunger Games' star Elizabeth Banks, Drive Angry's Amber Heard, comedian Donald Glover, former American football star Michael Strahan, Four Weddings And A Funeral star Andie McDowell and Gotham's Jada Pinkett Smith.

One man who is sadly missing is Matthew McConaughey, who decided against returning for the sequel and reprising his role as Dallas. Also not back are Alex Pettyfer and Cody Horn.

 

Does It Deliver?

This is more about spectacle and fun and less of a drama than the opening movie, but that’s no bad thing. This will be the accompaniment to many a wonderful night in for years and years to come.
