With over 11 million views (and counting) for the first official trailer that debuted last month, “Magic Mike XXL” has a TON of thirsty fans eagerly waiting its arrival.
In the short clip, Channing Tatum pays homage to the 1983 dance flick “Flashdance” with his electrifying moves, but according to the man himself, Joe Manganiello is the hunky dancer that might steal his spotlight.
“It is terrifyingly unreal when he dances,” Tatum told Entertainment Tonight. “He’s going to blow people’s minds in this movie.”
Not surprisingly, Manganiello had to practice his dirty dancing moves at home. Question is, did fiancée Sophia Vergara give him the thumbs up?
“She’s seen the routines,” the former “True Blood” hunk said with a sly smile.
For the highly-anticipated sequel, the guys will take their buff bods on the road for what Tatum calls a “stripper odyssey.”
And don’t worry, ladies, the fellas made sure they'll be well worth the price of admission.
"'Magic Mike' shape is different from being in beach shape," Tatum admitted. "We’re all killing ourselves diet-wise and that’s not to be sexy on stage -- that’s just so you don’t look fat."
"Magic Mike XXL" strips, gyrates and pumps its way into theaters on July 1, 2015.
