Warner Bros. has set the Magic Mike 2 release date for July 3, 2015. 2015 is already ridiculously crowded, but I have to admire a studio scheduling the sequel to an indie dramedy about male strippers for one of the biggest blockbuster weekends of the year. Even better, it will face off against Terminator: Genesis, and while audiences are used to getting their big action fix on the July 4th weekend, I wouldn’t rule out Magic Mike 2 as highly effective counter-programming. There’s more than one way to set off fireworks. One of those ways involves cock pumps.
In a recent interview, Magic Mike 2 star Channing Tatum said that “everyone” will likely return for the sequel. I hope that the movie is good and that they’ll be seeing a lot of laaawwwwwbreakers.
