Sounds like one film festival is going to go out with a bang! Ha!
It was recently announced that Magic Mike, the upcoming film about male strippers starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey, will have its WORLD premiere at the El Lay Film Festival!
Though the flick’s official release date is June 29, it is set be screened on the last night of the LA Film Festival, on June 24 in downtown Los Angeles.
The film fest kicks off June 14 with Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love and will also feature the upcoming Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks film, People Like Us.
The festival received over 5,283 submissions this year, with only 200 features, short films and music videos getting chosen!
On top of 30 world premiere screenings, fans of Patrick Swayze’s Dirty Dancing can gather for a Dance-A-Long on June 22nd, to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary!
…guess Channing Tatum's moves won't be the ONLY dirty dancing going on, LOLz!
Wow! Sounds like there'll be something for EVERYBODY at this year's festival!
We MUST see the seksiness that is Magic Mike…!!!!
Now, if only we could find a way to squeeze Zac Efron into the film…hmm…
