Fireworks came early for Racked readers last night, thanks to our exclusive screening of Magic Mike XXL at Westfield Century City. The sold-out event kicked off with a VIP happy hour at the shopping center's Pink Taco eatery, where charming gents from hot guy rental service Manservants entertained guests. More of the company's men were waiting right in front of AMC Theaters, offering to personally escort readers to their seats, arm-in-arm.
The rest of the night involved lots of clapping, laughing, whistling, and blushing as Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and the rest of the MMXXL crew offered abtastic gyrations on the big screen, powered by a super-sexy soundtrack. (Let's just say that Ginuwine's "Pony" has some competition.)
