Can you imagine watching “Magic Mike XXL” in 3D, as in real 3D? Now you can.
Channing Tatum recently gave fans an unforgettable experience of a lifetime by going undercover as an old man before surprising them at a test screening of his upcoming comedy-drama film, “Magic Mike XXL“.
In the video, the actor can be seen wearing extensive prosthetic makeup to portray Scott, “the most terrifying marketing exec ever”. Before the screening began, he interviewed some unsuspecting fans by asking them questions like who their favourite actor is and the parts of the movie they’d like to see in 3D.
The “3D” screening then began, with live male dancers popping up on stage. Tatum, who is obviously the best dancer of them all, saved himself for last. “Scott” began twerking to an unsuspecting fan onstage and fans were pleasantly surprised when “Scott” revealed his true self.
“Channing Tatum twerked in my lap so in that sense, I’ve reached peak life,” said one of the lucky fans who was treated to the exclusive “3D” screening of the male-stripper sequel.
Tatum later revealed that the prank was part of his charity campaign with Omaze. One lucky fan was be chosen to join him at the upcoming LA premiere and given a day of pampering and a stay at a top hotel. In addition, each $10 entry will benefit the Runa Foundation, a non-profit that aims to conserve forest ecosystems for the benefit of local livelihoods.
“Why wouldn’t you want to just change it up every once in a while and get a different flavor?” he told Yahoo.
I really enjoy that stuff. I’d go around in a costume every day if I could, for no other reason other than all bets are off. You don’t have to be responsible, and you can do whatever you like, especially as an older person. No one ever says anything if you’re slightly older and saying weird stuff to people.
Now, wouldn’t you want to watch “Magic Mike XXL” in 3D too?
Co-written by Tatum and Reid Carolin, the “Magic Mike” sequel is directed by Gregory Jacobs. It will see Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer and Gabriel Iglesias reprising their respective roles alongside Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, and Michael Strahan.
“Magic Mike XXL” is slated for release on 1st June.
