Is it July 1 yet?!? Because we’re super ready to ahem…ride those ponies, as the theme song in the new Magic Mike XXL trailer suggests. Speaking of the trailer, can we just say that it got a little hot up in here after we watched it for the
fourth first time? Seriously, it’s everything we could have wished for and more — no wonder it explicitly says “You’re Welcome” after showing six shirtless, oh-so-chiselled dudes on stage. Speaking of which, laundry day is coming up.
But we digress.

As promised by Mr. Channing Tatum himself just yesterday, the trailer dropped on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday morning. Everyone is back in the minute-and-a-half clip, save Matthew McConaughey of course, but we’re all right, all right, all right with that. So long as Tatum is back as the title character, and from the looks of things he’s not only upping his game with a mechanical twist, but he’s fully embraced the “Magic” of it all too. Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Gabriel Iglesias round out the returning actors, with Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard, Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Michael Strahan also joining the cast. The film hits theatres on July 1, an excellent way to celebrate Canada Day, if you ask us. Oh, and if you want to go ahead and watch this promo several times, we totally promise not to judge you.
Need to watch more Channing Tatum?
