A trailer for a film that comes out in July has stolen thunder from next week’s release of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
The new spot for “Magic Mike XXL” redefines “teaser trailer,” with Channing Tatum doing his best Jennifer Beals-in-“Flashdance” by donning a welder’s mask before breaking into dance.
The 2012 film “Magic Mike” drew partly from Tatum’s experiences as an exotic dancer, and was directed by an Oscar winner, Steven Soderbergh. The film explored the dancer’s dream of making custom furniture.
The sequel is directed by close Soderbergh associate Gregory Jacobs and finds the dancer ... Oh who cares? Enjoy the abs.
