Matt is currently in Las Vegas, attending the Warner Bros. day in Cinemacon, for a special Magic Mike XXL presentation. He was joined by co-stars Chaning Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash and Adam Rodriguez. Check the first pictures added in our gallery:
Earlier today, the character posted for Matt on Magic Mike XXL was revealed and, well… see it for yourself:
‘Our Ken doll is back, and this time he’s XXL.‘
The poster of Matt was one of several already released by Magic Mike XXL as part of an incredibly intelligent marketing scheme. Star Channing Tatum featured in the first poster released, while Adam Rodriguez and Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss soon followed.
Magic Mike XXL will be released in North America on July 1.
A new “Magic Mike XXL” promotional image was shared today by USA Today on their ‘Summer Movie Preview’ special article. Check the full sized picture in our gallery.
MAGIC MIKE XXL (July 1)
Stars: Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer
Director: Gregory Jacobs
Plot: Mike (Tatum) and his fellow male exotic dancers take a road trip from Tampa to Myrtle Beach for one last big blowout at a stripper convention.
Team dynamic: Because the first Magic Mike focused mainly on the title character, there wasn’t enough time to get to know the interesting personalities of guys like Ken (Bomer) or the fittingly named Big Dick Richie (Manganiello). Therein lies the appeal of the sequel for Jacobs — aside from the shirt-ripping, hip-thrusting, wild and crazy dance numbers, of course. “There’s a great bromance to it,” the director says. “They all really committed to who these characters are, and they really bring a lot and embrace the idiosyncrasies. They’re a fun group of guys to spend 100 minutes with.”
Magic Mike XXL is featured on current Entertainment Weekly ‘Summer Movie Preview‘ issue, with a brand new picture of the guys on the upcoming sequel.
There’s more to XXL than just naked dudes – although there is a lot of that too. The film picks up three years later, with Mike and his dancing budies (Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello among others) taking a road trop to a – yes! – stropper convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Magic Mike XXL opens on July 1st. Check the full scan in our gallery:
Shane Black’s The Nice Guys, starring Ryan Gosling, Matt Bomer and Russell Crowe, will hit theaters a few weeks earlier than expected.
Warner Bros. is moving up the release of the movie from June 17, 2016 to May 20, 2016.
Set in 1970s Los Angeles, Nice Guys follows a private eye (Gosling) and a hired leg breaker (Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the seemingly unrelated death of a porn star.
In its new date, Nice Guys goes up against family film Angry Birds, while Central Intelligence takes on Pixar’s long-awaited Finding Dory.
I uploaded HD screen captures of Matt’s recent film, ‘Space Station 76‘ that came out last year and can be found on DVD already. Thanks for Holly for the help with the caps, and enjoy specially the cutest scenes of Matt with his co-star Kylie Rogers. I’m working in a video archive revamp so clips of this film will be added as soon I have the revamp finished.
ET’s Nischelle Turner paid a visit to Magic Mike XXL set and talked to Matt which has finally mastered a far more important skill since the first film: putting on a thong.
“They were homemade so there were no tags and it was my first time putting one on,” Bomer told ET in 2012. “All the holes looked the same.” When the actor recalled the mishap to ET on the set of XXL, he assured us he knows what he’s doing this time around. “I think now I’m ready to go,” he said. “I’m ready. No assistance required.”
As for just how far Bomer and company push the boundaries in the sequel? Expect the unexpected. “I think people are going to be surprised by what they expect which is my favorite way to experience a sequel,” Bomer said.

Magic Mike XXL is featured on last People magazine issue. They have two new promotional stills as well, but with scenes we already can see on the trailer. On the magazine, there’s a Matt quote highlighted:
I’m actually a shy person, but not anymore because Magic Mike. The camaraderie builds as we go. Its just a free-for-all, and it’s exhibitionist and fun.
Matthew McConaughey is out this time around, but that’s all right. Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Channing Tatum (obviously) and other fan favorites return for the reboot. Joining the original cast members is a slew of new blood – including Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard, Michael Strahan and Elizabeth Banks.
Magic Mike XXL opens on July 1th.
Pictures of Matt attending the 2015 Golden Globes – which he won as Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for his work in The Normal Heart – can now be find in our gallery.
