Conan O'Brien sees Magic Mike XXL

This weekend Terminator: Genisys is hitting theaters, but veteran action star Arnold Schwarzenegger has a lot more to worry about than a new advanced cyborg. No, Schwarznegger’s biggest threat is a group of shirtless, thrusting men from Magic Mike XXL.

The film has plenty of men and women alike getting the vapors, and Conan O’Brien wanted to see what all the fuss was about. On a recent episode of his late night talk show on TBS, Conan joined his female staff members for a girls night out as they headed to a midnight screening of the Channing Tatum-led sequel that isn’t about a heavyweight magician. As you probably guessed,  the results are pretty damn funny.

White House Down 1

Channing Tatum doesn’t act like he’s famous. Even on the set of his upcoming movie, White House Down, the star of G.I. Joe, Magic Mike, Step Up and 21 Jump Street is humble, down to Earth and honest about his career. We spoke to the actor in Montreal last September. He said, after he next few movies, he wasn’t going to make another movie until he could direct himself, though a list of great directors could change his mind. He said he was so impressed with director Roland Emmerich that he’ll make movies with him forever.

Tatum also talked about Magic Mike 2, working with Steven Soderbergh and doing his own stunts – all of his own stunts. Tatum also discussed how growing up watching Eighties action films influenced his desire to make this movie, which opens June 28, and what it was about the script that really sold him.

Today the New York Film Critics Circle voted on awards for 2012, and Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln were the big winners, with nothing scored by The Master, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, or other potential awards faves.
