Joe Manganiello and Channing Tatum take some of the heat off Hollywood for objectifying women. They’re back in beefcake heaven in the first full-length trailer for “Magic Mike XXL,” a sequel to the 2012 comedy-drama directed by Steven Soderbergh.

In what could be the ultimate chick flick, or gay cult classic depending on your point of view, Channing and the boys turn it on for a male stripper convention.

Manganiello, Tatum and crew, which includes Matt Bomer as Ken, Kevin Nash as Tarzan, Adam Rodriguez as Tito and Gabriel Iglesias as Tobias, must prove they still have it.

The movie also has a cast of drooling females that includes Andie MacDowell, Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith and Elizabeth Banks. In all, more than 900 women were used as extras!

The original “Magic Mike,” grossed more than $113 million worldwide, on a mere $7 million production budget, which put it squarely in sequel territory. The new picture has more of everything; how can it lose?

The movie hits theaters July 1.
