Magic Mike XXL is one of the most highly anticipated sequels of the summer, and fans of the original have been breaking their necks to get to theaters. It has been a 3 year wait, but the Magic Mike sequel is finally taking over in a huge way. Anyone familiar with the first Magic Mike can instantly pick up where they left off in the story line, but this is a great watch for new viewers as well. Just about everyone is hooked on the magic and Channing Tatum’s flawless choreography has audiences dancing in their seats.
This time around we take an epic road trip with Mike and the boys, as they reunite one last time to give their dancing careers the finale they deserve, at an epic stripper competition in Myrtle Beach. Of course there is still some tension remaining from the drama we witnessed during their last time together, but it all gets worked out as they make their way to the competition. As the guys head to Myrtle Beach, they make stops in Jacksonville and Savannah, where we get a taste of what life is like for strippers outside of Magic Mike’s world.
As if we all needed another reason to catch this sexy flick, the promise of some fresh meat in the cast definitely sweetens the deal. Jada Pinkett stars as Rome, one of Mike’s old running buddies and an old flame, while Donald Glover takes on the role of Andre, Rome’s little brother and a smooth rapper at his sister’s mansion turned night club, Domina. Rome and Mike’s past could easily be juicy enough for an amazing prequel, but for right now their sizzling chemistry is enough to keep fans satisfied.
Crystal Hunt best known for her career in daytime television, is yet another newbie to the Magic Mike story. Hunt plays the role of Lauren in the film, and her dedicated daytime fans are following her tracks to the big screen. This summer Magic Mike XXL pulled a whopping $65 Million in ticket sales, and lots of new fans of the movie admit that they went to cheer Crystal on. Magic Mike may be a long way from Crystal’s roles on One Life to Live and Guiding Light, but she insists that her run on daytime has more than prepared her for this project.
