'Magic Mike XXL' to Strip Down for America on July 4th, 2015 Weekend

Briefly: Last month, we learned the developing sequel to Steven Soderbergh's male stripper hit Magic Mike would be going by the appropriately bigger title of Magic Mike XXL and the original film's first assistant director Greg Jacobs would be at the helm this time. Now Warner Bros. has announced that the sequel will arrive in a prime summer spot on July 3rd, 2015, just in time to take advantage of the big box office that always comes through on July 4th weekend. That means the Channing Tatum sequel will arrive just a couple days after Terminator: Genesis, but the target audiences couldn't be more different. We still don't know much of anything about the film other than it's "a road movie sort of thing," so stay tuned for more.

I hope they make the sequel G Rated, the first film was too awkward to watch at times and they definitely need to bring the tone way down.

What? No Kickstarter campaign to bring back Kevin Nash. I got 45 cents burning a hole in my pocket. Seriously though, I was very disappointed with Nash in the first one. They barely used him! He was hilarious in The Longest Yard remake. Although they'd f-in have to f-in make it a f-in NC-17 with all the f-in F-bombs man. F-in right Kev?

Boy, I'm gonna get blasted from the nutty fanboys on this one; you know, the monkey men insecure defensive ones. Well, here goes. This crap is a pure indicator of how low our pop culture has become...XXL?...as in extra large? I wonder what the means in a male stripper movie? Man oh man....America is such an immature and sexually insecure country that they can actually not only make a movie about this kind of silliness, but then, and with a straight face, titled it as such with childish innuendoes regarding dick size? Say it ain't so! Say I've not lived long enough to see how debased and idiotic our culture has become! Is this what you all mean about not thinking and having 'fun'?

But yet we see TONS of naked women all over our tv screens and thats ok??? Double standard much? So what, so it's a little somethin for the ladies...big freakin deal! I saw the movie and even though I was bored with the plot, Channing made up for it with his awesome dancing skills and nice body! Btw, there's no full-frontal nudity so why is this even an issue? There's a naked woman or half-naked woman in pretty much every movie, music video, and tv show nowadays!

Well, okay. Thanks for your reply. I got no argument with you. It's all pretty silly to me; even the naked women all over the tv screens. Basically, it indicates the childish and immature sexual nature of American culture. As far as Channing and his nice body and dancing skills I'll leave that up to others as it's all in the eyes of the beholder. I know a friend of mine who's very, very gay loved the movie. So there's that too. And he's East coast Ivy League educated and very intelligent! Ha! Just goes to show that the sexual urge and sexual inner life can make even the most intelligent pretty stupid! I rest my case...uh...Blondie? Man or woman, Blondie? Just wonderin'....
