“Magic Mike” fans are swooning over the trailer and poster for the sequel, “Magic Mike XXL,” which features star Channing Tatum topless and pointing down to his best assets.
What? You’d expect subtlety from a franchise about male strippers?
“Look, but you can’t touch,” he teases on the poster as he points southward towards his private parts, where the date of the movie’s release – July 1, 2015 – is hung across the front of his pants.
Tatum revealed the poster on social media Tuesday, directing fans to watch him on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday.

The trailer was also released Wednesday, adding to the frenzy, watch:
In the sequel, Channing reunites with his stripper friends Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello as they head to a strippers’ convention. (Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith and Michael Strahan show up in the sequel, too.)
Which begs a big question for us.
What kind of entertainment do they have at a stripping convention?
