Channing was also all smiles as he chatted to his colleague and crew and even masked up especially to sign an autograph for an adoring fan of his. 

The comedy-drama feature has brought in nearly $300million worldwide with the first two films.

The original Magic Mike movie premiered in 2012 and was directed by Steven Soderbergh – who is also the director of the latest installment – and was loosely based on the experiences of Tatum, who was an 18-year-old stripper in Tampa, Florida.

The film starred Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Matthew McConaughey, and revolved around Adam, a 19-year-old who was suddenly immersed in the world of male stripping.

Magic Mike’s sequel, by the title of Magic Mike XXL, was directed by Gregory Jacobs, and released in 2015.

Channing recently revealed that he almost passed on the opportunity to participate in the third movie due to the rigorous physical requirements involved.

While appearing on the Kelly Clarkson Show the father of one explained that he didn’t want to do a third film because he felt that his body wasn’t in the right shape.

‘That might be the reason why I didn’t want to do a third one,’ he told Clarkson as she showed a shirtless photo of him from the second film. ‘Because I have to look like that.’

‘It’s hard to look like that. Even if you do work out, to be that kind of in shape is not natural,’ he said.

‘You have to starve yourself,’ he went on. ‘I don’t think when you’re that lean, it’s actually healthy for you,’ he admitted.

He also praised those with regular jobs who are able to commit to staying that fit.

 ‘I don’t know how people who work a 9 to 5 actually stay in shape because it’s my full-time job, and I can barely do it,’ he said.

The actor revealed that he worked out twice a day and ate ‘completely right’ in order to prepare for the role.

He was also dismayed by the fact that his fitness results take long to attain but can disappear in just days.

‘Why — when it takes like, I don’t know, two months to get really lean — in three days, you can lose it? It’s gone. I was like, “What happened?”‘ he said.

Tatum confirmed that he would reprise his role for Magic Mike’s Last Dance in November on 2021.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE he expressed that he wants the film to be like ‘ the Super Bowl of stripping.’

 ‘I want dancing like we’ve never been able to do in the other two movies, because we had to be honest to what the reality of that world is, which isn’t great dancing.’ 

He also spoke about the importance on the movie having a lead female character.

‘I want to have an equal, if not even more centralized female character for Mike to really play off of and almost to… I don’t want to say, [to have her] take the baton, but really let the movie be about a female’s experience and not Mike’s experience, because it has been so much about Mike and the guys’ experiences. These movies are very, very female-forward. At least that is our intention. 

The film is set to premiere exclusively on HBO Max. The release date has not yet been announced.
