“I’m old, not obsolete,” mutters Arnold Schwarzenegger’s aging android in “Terminator Genisys,” and his words could be a wishful mantra for this nervy, silly, almost admirably misguided attempt to give the 31-year-old franchise a massive cybernetic facelift. More or less rewriting everything we thought we knew about the Connor genealogy, the properties of liquid metal, and the rules of post-1984 time travel, this f/x-encrusted reboot feels at once back-to-basics and confoundingly revisionist, teeming with alternate timelines and rejiggered character histories (the most perplexing of which finds Sarah Connor now continually referring to Schwarzenegger’s Terminator as “Pops”). Consider it the 3D blockbuster equivalent of disruptive technology, and while online fans have already voiced their displeasure, the movie’s willingness to veer crazily off-course feels less objectionable than the monotony and sense of self-parody that kick in long before the whimper of a finish.

Now playing in theaters is Magic Mike Xxl. Gregory Jacobs takes over as director this time around, though Steven Soderbergh is still onboard as cinematographer, camera operator, and editor. Written by Reid Carolin, the story takes place three years after the events of Magic Mike, as Channing Tatum’s character has bowed out of the stripper game for good…or so he thinks. The rest of the Kings of Tampa decide to throw in the towel as well, but not before one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach with Mike sharing the spotlight. As the boys embark on a rowdy road trip, they renew old acquaintances and make new friends. As you can see in these fifty images, Jada Pinkett Smith plays a club owner, while Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Elizabeth Banks, and Andie MacDowell fill other supporting roles. The film also stars Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, »

The summer movie season is upon us, and as blockbusters arrive in the movie theaters, they are accompanied by auxiliary videos released on online platforms like YouTube. We’ve already spotlighted web content related to summer movies like Jurassic World and Minions, and Magic Mike Xxl is the next flick to get the YouTube treatment. The sequel to the 2012 film Magic Mike has been spoofed on Maker Studios’ Nacho Punch channel, where a gentleman named “Regular Mike” has taken up residence.
Nacho Punch introduced the world to Regular Mike with a fake trailer for a film of the same name. Like Channing Tatum’s character in Magic Mike, Regular Mike (played by Mike McNeal) gets up on stage and performs in front of a crowd of fawning women. However, instead of wowing his female audience with a seductive striptease, Regular Mike impresses the ladies by building a spice rack, doing yoga, »

The Fourth of July is upon us. That means you'll probably spend just enough time under the sun—baking in its heat, getting sweaty, feeling light-headed, peeling clothes from your body, worrying about melanoma, talking to people you see all the time, anyway—to realize that you'd rather not be spending time under the sun. When that occurs, know that there are plenty of options awaiting you at a nearby movie house. Here's a list of 16 flicks— and what Vulture's reviewers had to say about them—to help expedite your escape from the outdoors. Magic Mike XXLThe Channing Tatum-produced follow-up to 2012's surprise hit Magic Mike, Xxl is fun despite the inherent cynicism of sequels, according to David Edelstein: “My hunch is that the whole thing was thrown together quickly and shot on the fly, which accounts for the loose narrative and let’s-put-on-a-show sense of immediacy.

Magic Mike Xxl opens in cinemas on July 3. »
Pre-release polling suggested it would be a close call between newcomers "Magic Mike Xxl" and "Terminator Genisys" and after one day tracking looks on target. "Magic Mike Xxl" took in $9.3 million on Wednesday while the fifth "Terminator" raked in $8.9 million. For comparison's sake, last year the Melissa McCarthy comedy "Tammy" opened to $6.2 million the Wednesday before July 4th and "Transformers: Age of Extinction," in its third day, earned $7.7 million. It's still unclear whether either new film will win the holiday frame. "Inside Out," which crossed the $200 million mark Tuesday, or "Jurassic World," the no. 1 movie of the year so far with over $514 million, could easily take the top spot. One intriguing indicator of what will occur may be the handy Cinemascore ratings. "Magic Mike" earned an A- while "Genysis" polled at a B+. Critics have also been kinder to the Channing Tatum sequel awarding it a 60 on Metacritic and a 59% on Rotten Tomatoes. »

Channing Tatum's role in the dance film Step Up broke him as one of Hollywood's favorite leading men, and while he's grown into a megastar, his dancing skills are never far behind. While shooting his Vanity Fair cover with Annie Leibowitz, Tatum showcased seven dance moves in 30 seconds.
From the twist to the funky chicken, Tatum gave a brief taste of his abilities for each of the moves in a clip soundtracked by Ginuwine's "Pony." His abilities to vogue, however, top it all, confirming that he has become »
Channing Tatum‘s “Magic Mike: Xxl” danced past Arnold Schwarzenegger and “Terminator: Genisys” in their first day at the box office Wednesday. But the numbers suggest they’ll have trouble lighting it up over the full July 4 weekend. Warner Bros.’ “Magic Mike Xxl” was No. 1 on Wednesday with $9.3 million, ahead of the $8.9 million that second-place “Terminator: Genisys” rolled up for Paramount and Skydance Productions. Those figures included their respective Tuesday night hauls of $2.4 million and $2.3 million, however, and that’s what put them ahead of heavyweight holdovers “Inside Out” and “Jurassic World.” Take away the Tuesday grosses and it’s. »

“Terminator Genisys” and “Magic Mike XXL” are on a collision course heading into the July 4th weekend, but neither film is providing the kind of spark to ticket sales that Hollywood had expected to see over the country’s birthday.
For the time being, “Magic Mike Xxl” has a slight edge on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest comeback attempt. The stripper sequel danced its way to a $9.3 million opening on Wednesday, a figure that includes the $2.4 million that “Magic Mike Xxl” generated in Tuesday evening shows. It bowed on 3,355 screens.
For its part, “Terminator Genisys” shot up $8.9 million in its first full day from 3,758 locations, 363 of which are Imax venues. That sum also includes the $2.3 million that the action adventure garnered during Tuesday night screenings. Both pictures could make north of $40 million over their first five days in theaters. That’s less than the $45 million to $50 million gross that “Magic Mike Xxl »

The boys are back, but their clothes are still gone! Magic Mike Xxl opened Wednesday, reuniting five strippers from 2012's surprise hit Magic Mike: Ken (Matt Bomer), Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello), Tarzan (Kevin Nash), Tito (Adam Rodríguez) and Mike (Channing Tatum). The Warner Bros. film finds four of the Kings of Tampa ready to retire. But before they can hang up their thongs for good, they ask Mike to join them for one last hurrah at a convention. The road trip to Myrtle Beach is full of surprises, ranging from humorous to heartfelt. Cody Horn, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn and Alex Pettyfer's characters do not reprise their roles from Steven Soderbergh's film. Instead, director Gregory »
It’s no big news that sequels are made for the most cynical, mercenary reasons, but the actors in Magic Mike Xxl seem to be having a blast selling out, swiveling their tanned, toned torsos in high-camp stripteases while hordes of women shriek, grope, inhale that sweet ambrosial sweat, and shower them with bills. The movie is basically a road comedy: episodic, ramshackle, more of a lark than the 2012 Magic Mike, which was yet another Steven Soderbergh parable of how capitalism transforms sex into a soulless commodity. This sequel — directed by producer Gregory Jacobs and photographed by Soderbergh under his nom de lumière “Peter Andrews” — doesn’t have the same morality-play structure and even seems, at times, like a reversal of its predecessor. The movie (written by Reid Carolin) says that it’s so tough to make it in our present woeful economy that a man might as well shed »

In Magic Mike Xxl, the sequel to the surprise worldwide hit Magic Mike, it’s been three years since Mike (Channing Tatum) bowed out of the stripper life. But after reuniting with the remaining Kings of Tampa – including Ken (Matt Bomer), Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello), Tito (Adam Rodriguez) and Tarzan (Kevin Nash) – who are headed to Myrtle Beach for one last blow-out performance at the annual stripper convention, he convinces them to learn some new moves and go out bigger and better than ever. At the film’s press day, director/producer Greg Jacobs spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why he wanted to be a part of telling this story, having worked with Steven Soderbergh for 24 years, his first cut being about 20 minutes longer, the handful of deleted scenes he’d like to include on the DVD/Blu-ray, the most challenging scene to shoot, and making »

After two Magic Mike movies, Channing Tatum can never listen to Ginuwine's hit "Pony" ever again. "We have a very much inside joke where wherever we, restaurants, anywhere, that song comes on and we're like [makes crazy face]," his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum joked at the London premiere of Magic Mike: Xxl yesterday (film hits theaters today). "You kind of kill your baby," Tatum added. "Like that's one of my favorite songs ever and now everybody's looking at me once the song comes on." "No pressure whatsoever, when that song comes on. Never," Dewan-Tatum laughed. Meanwhile, Dewan-Tatum says she's going to catch the new stripper flick in »
It's been a long, hard 24 hours. First Jen and Ben, and then there was whole Guacamole blasphemy situation. How much more can a person take? Luckily we've got something to pick up the spirits. The guys behind Honest Trailers have finally decided to take on Magic Mike. It's perfect timing, since Magic Mike Xxl hits theaters today and we've all got gyrating Channing Tatum on our mind. The re-edit of course takes a few (or more) digs at the admittedly ridiculous amount of shirtless men and, well, crotches, but it also touches on the fact that the movie was kind of a downer at times. "From Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh," the fake voiceover announces, "Comes a movie that »
Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle “Terminator Genisys” and Channing Tatum starrer “Magic Mike Xxl” are set to go toe-to-toe this weekend, with both new movies expected to hit at least $40 million at the five-day holiday weekend box office, according to early forecasts on Wednesday.
First estimates showed both films finishing their opening days Wednesday in the $9.5 million to $10 million range. The Wednesday estimates included Tuesday-night preview showings, with “Magic Mike Xxl” taking in $2.4 million, edging out “Terminator Genisys” with $2.3 million at 2,527 locations.
The top end of five-day forecasts for Paramount-Skydance’s “Terminator Genisys” has been $55 million at 3,600 locations, while Warner Bros.’ “Magic Mike Xxl” is predicted to finish in the mid-to-high 40s at 3,355 sites, with one tracker suggesting “Mike” would finish under $40 million.

Channing Tatum's not ready to throw in the thong just yet! The actor covers the August issue of Vanity Fair, where he opens up about his stripper past and gushes about his baby girl, Everly Tatum. While Tatum's no stranger to stripping on the big screen in both "Magic Mike" and "Magic Mike Xxl," the actor also says he wouldn't write off taking the stage again in real life just yet. "Well, we’re going to start a [Magic Mike] show in Vegas, and I’ll never say never," he tells the mag. "I wouldn’t mind going out there and doing it one more time. Or maybe twice. But, you know, every time I’ve put on a thong and am getting ready to walk onstage again, I’m like, ‘Why do I want to do this?’ It’s very uncomfortable to be in a thong in front of a thousand people. »
