Star Channing Tatum shared the first look at Magic Mike's Last Dance just under a month ago, with an all-new trailer teaser confirming that the film's first trailer is arriving imminently. This new look at the film doesn't offer much insight into the details of the plot, but it confirms that a prominent component of the narrative will be the relationship between Tatum's Mike and the all-new character played by Salma Hayek. You can check out the first trailer teaser for Magic Mike's Last Dance below before the trailer is unveiled later this week and before the film hits theaters on February 10, 2023.
Making the upcoming third film in the series even more exciting is that, while it was originally slated to be an HBO Max original, Warner Bros. Discovery instead opted to make it a theatrical release. Given how many other HBO Max projects were scrapped due to behind-the-scenes shakeups at the studio, Magic Mike's Last Dance is one of the rare examples of beneficial decisions being made.
While news of this film pivoting to a theatrical release came as somewhat of a surprise to audiences, it was something director Steven Soderbergh had been hoping to explore with the project.
"It's certainly hard to argue that this isn't a movie that's best seen in a theater, because we have the data. People, primarily women, were going in packs, in large groups, to see the Magic Mike movies," the filmmaker recalled to Variety earlier this year. "That's the discussion with Warners right now -- can we eventize this? And if so, should we put it out theatrically?"
As the title implies, this upcoming film might be the conclusion of the narrative, but Soderbergh isn't ruling out exploring other stories in this universe.
"I think there are other things to be done within what I consider now to be a larger Magic Mike universe," Soderbergh confirmed to the outlet. "There are stories that can be told that have the same sort of ethos and are tackling the same subjects that still involve dance but don't have Mike Lane in them."
With the series of films also inspiring the live show Magic Mike Live, regardless of its big-screen future, the spirit of the concept will be living on for years to come.
Magic Mike's Last Dance hits theaters on February 10, 2023.
