As Magic Mike XXL hits cinemas, unzip our special cover and don't miss our 16 page movie mag ONLY in this week's issue

Say hello to the new men in your life!

For one week only, the cast of Magic Mike XXL have taken over Now with a 16 page movie mag – and you can unzip the cover to reveal a gorgeous secret special edition cover underneath.

Want to know what the movie is all about? Read our chat with director Greg Jacobs and find out the inspiration behind the film. ‘I think the audeinces should expect a good time, and I hope we deliver,’ Greg reveals. ‘I hope people laugh – it’s kind of an emotional journey, but it’s a lot of fun, too.’

Plus, we’ve got plenty of sexy behind-the-scenes pics of all cast – Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez and Kevin Nash.

And of course there’s a saucy Channing interview too. ‘It always seems like a good idea until you actually have to go out on stage in a thong,’ the stripper-turned-actor admits.

‘I mean, every night when I was actually stripping, that was my least favourtie part – because you just go out there, rip your pants off and your’re just standing there in a thong. In the movie, the guys are going out on this one last ride, and you know it will all end with everybody being embarrassed on stage in thongs.’

Wondering what is was like to strip infront of a room full of women? Just ask Joe Manganiello! ‘It was electrifying. I haven’t witnessed anything like that. My ears were ringing like I’d just come out of a rock concert.’

In addition, our mini mag includes some steamy pull-out posters of the cast in all their stripping glory; all the vital stats on the gorgeous Magic Mike XXL men; and female cast style guides from Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Elizabeth Banks.

The special issue goes on sale on Tuesday 30 June and you can download the digital issue here
