MAGIC MIKE XXL (15, SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TOMORROW)

Channing Tatum returns as the legendary headlining stripper – looking to tear the house down one last time.

Picking up three years after ‘Magic Mike’ bowed out of the business at the top of his game, he joins the Kings of Tampa – Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez and ex-WWE superstar Kevin Nash – as they hit the road to Myrtle Beach for one last blow-out, in this sequel to Steven Soderbergh’s (who is on production and editing duties this time) quirky 2012 sleeper comedy-drama hit.

Despite being a music-fuelled ‘abs’ fest for the ladies, the surprising amount of humour of the original definitely gave it ‘lads’ appeal too – and this time Amber Heard, Elizabeth Banks, Andie MacDowell and Jada Pinkett-Smith add eye-candy for the boys as well.
