The McConaissance was a wonderful thing for pop culture. It brought us Mud, and True Detective, and of course, culminated in Mr. Alright, Alright, Alright finally earning an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.
But are fans of Matthew McConaughey about to experience a downside to the actor’s recent success? The Channing Tatum-penned Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike Xxl, just received a release date of July 3, 2015. If things Work Out As They Should, it should be a wonderful two hours of G-strings, ’80s songs, and showcases of Tatum-created dance moves (ideally with less Alex Pettyfer and »

Warner Bros. wants you to celebrate Independence Day 2015 with ripped abs, greased-up pecs, g-strings, and dollar bills. The studio has revealed that "Magic Mike 2" will be released July 3, 2015, according to Deadline. Channing Tatum is returning in the title role in the sequel to the surprise 2012 hit directed by Steven Soderbergh. It was inspired by Tatum's days as a male stripper; he and Soderbergh co-produced and helped finance the film themselves. Soderbergh's longtime collaborator Gregory Jacobs is directing this time around. The sequel -- reported to be titled "Magic Mike Xxl" -- will provide counter-programming to the usual summer blockbuster fare. "Terminator: Genesis" opens two days earlier, and other July 2015 openers include "Despicable Me: Minions" the Peter Pan adaptation "Pan," and Marvel's "Ant-Man." The original "Magic Mike" also starred Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello. It earned a huge $113.7 million domestically, and spawned a forthcoming Broadway musical. »

Any film that proves to be a box office smash hit virtually guarantees itself a pre-approved sequel, and 2012’s Magic Mike is no exception. Thanks to great reviews and a $167 million international return on a $7 million budget, Magic Mike 2 – or more specifically, Magic Mike Xxl – will arrive in cinemas on July 3rd, 2015.
Magic Mike was loosely based on the experiences of the film’s producer and star Channing Tatum, back in his days as an 18 year old stripper. Co-starring Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer, the film enjoyed critical, as well as commercial success. According to a recent interview with MTV, Tatum and writer/producer Reid Carolin have been writing the sequel for several months already.
This one will be a road trip movie. Without giving a lot away, we don’t wanna make it a really serious, slice-of-life movie. We want to have reality in it, »

Just weeks after securing director Gregory Jacobs, the Magic Mike sequel, currently titled Magic Mike Xxl, has been given a July 3, 2015 release date. The sequel currently has the date all to itself, but it will debut just two days after Paramount's Terminator: Genesis opens on July 1, 2015.
Channing Tatum is co-writing the script with his Magic Mike collaborator Reid Carolin. The actor recently spoke about the writing process in an interview with MTV, where he revealed that he has been working on the script with Reid Carolin for the past two months.
"[We started writing] probably like two months ago. With my partner Reid I was like, 'Ah it'll write itself, it's fine'-not the case. Not the case at all."
It has been widely believed that the rest of the Magic Mike cast, including Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Matthew Bomer are returning. While no deals have been signed yet, Channing Tatum »
Warner Bros. has set a July 3, 2015 release date for Magic Mike Xxl (aka Magic Mike 2) of which star and co-writer Channing Tatum recently discussed with MTV saying, "I think everyone's gonna be back, I think. Obviously no one's deals are done which is always kind of scary." As for the plot, it's just as before, the film is expected to be a road trip movie, but Tatum elaborated with MTV saying: This one will be a road trip movie. Without giving a lot away, we don't wanna make it a really serious, slice-of-life movie. We want to have reality in it, but we don't want to make it some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last one that I think surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want there to be a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a sh*t-ton of fun. »

The sequel to the hit 2012 film directed by Steven Soderbergh was about Channing Tatum‘s early days as a male stripper before he blew up as an actor. I dug the first film which is also Soderbergh’s biggest hit as a director. What was also cool about the film was the fact that Channing and Soderbergh financed it themselves, took a huge risk, and it obviously paid off.
For those who didn’t see the first film, Magic Mike was about Mike (Channing Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy cash.

What do we know about “Magic Mike 2” so far? Well, as we revealed exclusively a few weeks back, the official title will be “Magic Mike Xxl” and Greg Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh’s longtime producer/first A.D./creative co-hort, will take over the directing duties (Soderbergh has “retired” which basically means directing TV, but no feature films). And more news has arrived. Warner Bros. has slotted the movie for a July 4th weekend in 2015. America, get happy (though the gang of strippers will have to face off against the new "Terminator" reboot which could prove to be a challenge). Who’s returning for the sequel? Obviously Matthew McConaughey and Alex Pettyfer were seemingly written out of the narrative, but asked point blank about McConaughey, star/producer/co-writer Channing Tatum recently told MTV, “I think everyone’s gonna be back, I think, Obviously no one’s deals are done which is always kind of scary. »

With their relentless popularity and financial success, it seems everyone in Hollywood is keen to jump on the bandwagon and adapt a beloved Ya novel to the big-screen, but some tales fare better than others, and some characters linger in the mind and cling to the heart more than others.
Here’s are selection of the ten greatest characters from the films monopolising the global box-office.
