‘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. You should know that you now have plans with girlfriends to hit the theater on July 1. (Count me in, ladies!)
Once again taking it off on the big screen will be the original’s Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Adam Rodriguez. Strippers not taking the stage this time around are the beautiful, often shirtless Alex Pettyfer and the eternally sexy Matthew McConaughey. (Maybe he if he won his Oscar for ‘Magic Mike’ we’d be getting an encore.)
But the good news: Among the new guys showing some skin this time are uber-ripped dancer-actor-‘Ellen’ stalwart Stephen “tWitch” Boss and former Super Bowl stud/current talk-show cutie Michael Strahan. Also, reports suggest that the new movie’s tone will not only be less dark but it will fully embrace the concept. That concept being the following: THE AUDIENCE IS THERE FOR THE MALE NUDITY. BRING IT!!!!!
Speaking of bringing it, I have fully brought it below — check out the movie’s first poster in all its over-the-top glory, the Magic Mike XXL trailer with all its hot action and the eight most important GIFs that will get you even more primed for the main ‘MMXXL’ event!
Ryan Guzman shirtless photos are pretty much ruling my life right now. The gorgeous actor is the titular bad boy who so sexily and memorably enjoys Jennifer Lopez’s cookies in new flick ‘The Boy Next Door.’ The movie is taglined “An Obsession He Couldn’t Control,” which is an amazing coincidence: Looking at his beautiful face and ripped torso are pretty much obsessions that I can’t seem to control. (Nor do I choose to control those impulses, but that’s obviously another issue.)
Thankfully, he’s appeared on film and in photo shoots a-plenty sans clothing. And he’s been breaking hearts and covering bedroom walls long before making torrid love to JLo on the big screen. He’s the studly star of the fourth and fifth ‘Step Up’ movies and somehow didn’t end up with the girl as Jake on ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ Ryan apparently has got a bunch of other projects in the works, but I want more of him NOW. If you agree, I think you’re going to like what you’re about to see …
Colin Firth‘s name has bandied about relentlessly this holiday season, assigned the credit and/or blame for the current ugly Christmas sweater rage. Firth is innocent, of course, having been forced into a now-famous abominable reindeer jumper for his role as Mark Darcy in ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary.’ Where Firth is guilty is in how adorable he looked in the dang thing, making the rest of us think that the sweaters themselves were less horrible.
But if buying, creating, donning or merely seeing an ugly Christmas sweater makes us think of Colin Firth, then by all means, God bless us, everyone! Click the jump(er?) to join in our Colin Firth Ugly Christmas Sweater Party!
Happy Halloween and Flashback Friday! For today’s celebration, we are remembering the 1987 cult classic ‘Lost Boys’, starring the gorgeous Jason Patric as quasi-vampire Michael (and an unforgettable Kiefer Sutherland as a full-on vamp villain). It’s been more than two decades but we are still swooning over Jason’s sexy curly locks, dangling earring and cool-as-hell sunglasses. Oh, yeah, and his chest, with a happy trail a mile long. Enjoy this collection of pics and GIFs of Jason Patric in ‘Lost Boys'”
We all owe Michael Strahan a debt of gratitude: There’s a very good reason he denied himself the pleasure of a single Peanut M&M backstage at ‘Live With Kelly and Michael’ recently. The former football Giant has been keeping his body in pristine shape for his upcoming role in ‘Magic Mike XXL.’ Yes, he’s actually stripping on camera, people!
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:
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a social-media phenomenon that has raised awareness of the neurodegenerative disease to new heights as well as tens of millions of dollars to help fight it. By now, you’ve probably witnessed scores of your own friends dousing themselves with ice-cold water and seen videos of dozens of celebrities doing the same, all while challenging their other famous friends. We’ve gathered up all the hunky celebrity men we could find taking on the challenge and posted the videos for your enjoyment below. We’re still waiting for Channing Tatum to answer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s call and Chris Hemsworth [UPDATE: He did it and we have it!] to respond to Robert Downey Jr., and we are wondering when someone will finally get around to challenging Hugh Jackman [UPDATE: Done! See below!], Alex O’Loughlin [UPDATE: Done! Watch it below!], Taylor Kinney, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Alexander Skarsgard. And you can’t convince us that David Beckham isn’t working on his own video this very second! [UPDATE: Becks did it! Evidence below!]
You can learn more about this awful disease at the ALS Association website before donating whatever amount you can online at the same link.
In the meantime, enjoy videos from hot athletes and actors and more, including ‘Dancing With the Stars’ hottie Derek Hough, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez and ‘Arrow’ hunk Stephen Amell (pictured above, left to right).
