In case you needed more than Channing Tatum's abs and Salma Hayek's existence, here are all the details on the third "Magic Mike" installment.
Magic Mike will be heating up movie theaters in February. The male stripper will return to the big screen in Magic Mike's Last Dance this winter after an eight-year hiatus.
Channing Tatum once again returns as male stripper Mike Lane for the third movie installment of the Magic Mike franchise, which began with Magic Mike (2012) and Magic Mike XXL (2015).

But Magic Mike's Last Dance marks another opportunity to see Tatum's rock-hard abs on a gigantic HD screen. What else do we know? Academy Award nominee Salma Hayek joins the fold—and it gets steamy.
