Matt Bomer has joined the all-star cast of MGM’s remake of The Magnificent Seven.
Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio, Wagner Moura, Haley Bennett and Jason Momoa are already in the saddle for the Western, which updates the 1960 movie that starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Robert Vaughn.
Antoine Fuqua is directing.
With a script written by John Lee Hancock and Nic Pizzolatto, the new version’s story kicks off when a woman (Bennett) hires a disparate group of gunslingers to protect her town from rampaging bandits that are led by a robber baron.
Bomer will play the woman’s husband, a man who tries to stand up to the robber baron.
Earlier this morning Joe Manganiello visited Good Morning America and the new Magic Mike XXL trailer was presented. It will be released officially tomorrow (06) but you can check it below:
Magic Mike XXL hits theaters July 1.
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.
