If we didn’t know any better we just might think Channing Tatum did some research in a few Atlanta male strip clubs before reprising his role in Magic Mike XXL.
From a provocative performance to Jodeci’s “I Wanna Freak You,” to a routine (with Stephen tWitch Boss) to Bando Jonez’ “Sex Me,” Tatum’s got some seriously sexy moves that could rival the guys from Chocolate City, and earn him the stage name “White Chocolate.”
But according to Tatum, that was exactly the goal. HipHollywood caught up with him, as well as as the choreographers of the film, to find out about his new and improved magic moves.
“In the first movie we were a little tethered to reality,” explained Tatum. “This world isn’t all that creative with dances and stuff, you’re kinda stuck doing the fireman routine and things. But with this one I really wanted to break that mold, and see what we could come up with.”
And he definitely did according to Allison Faulkner one of of the choreographers on the film. “I was like Jen, did Channing get hotter, and she was like he did, I don’t know, maybe because now he’s a daddy, I don’t know. We all were like you got hotter, he was like I did, cool.”
“He did a lot of free-styling and coming up with ideas as far as choreography,” added assistant choreographer Luke Broadlick. “He was really committed.”
But Channing wasn’t the only one. So You Think You Can Dance alum Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash and Matt Bomer, also show off some killer moves.

It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
