‘Magic Mike XXL’ is coming! ‘Magic Mike XXL’ is coming!
With a brand-spanking-new teaser trailer and official poster just released, audiences everywhere are getting their first look at the much-anticipated sequel to 2012’s ‘Magic Mike,’ aka The Citizen Kane of Male Stripper Movies.

And, as he revealed on ‘Live’ today (Oct. 20), all that self-denial and dieting has yielded some very impressive results. Michael shared the above photo of himself posing with ‘Magic Mike’ CEO Channing Tatum backstage on set in Georgia. Then he did it one better, sharing this shot of his magnificent abs:
