Ever since the announcement of Magic Mike XXL, the cast and crew have been revealing the plot piece by piece like they're removing an article of clothing at a time.
Recently Channing Tatum unveiled the happy trail of the movie, that the boys (see the pics above) would be taking a road trip to a stripper convention.
Now he's flexing the abs by telling us that this "convention" is really just the biggest stripper show ever to create "the stripper movie that'll end all stripper movies."

The convention is based on a real-life show that Channing attended in his stripper days. And he has some far out deets about it AND the movie! He said:
"I have no idea why it's called a convention. The 'convention' was not strippers peddling stripper technology or anything like that. It was just a big show with 50 to 70 strippers and 2,000 to 3,000 women. It was crazy. They attacked me every night."
50-70 strippers?? That WILL end all stripper movies! We can't wait!
But it's not all sexy dancing and abs! There's a gritty side to stripping too!
Channing says he was giving one woman at the convention a lap dance, when she said the most disturbing thing:
"The lady goes, 'Oh my God! Look at you! You remind me of my nephew!' — and then grabs me. It hit me like a hand grenade. It was like tick, tick, tick, boom: She's grabbing my butt and saying, 'You remind me of my nephew.'"
Is that going to be in the movie??
Well, we guess if we want the full monty, we're going to have to see even the darkest parts of the stripping world too.
