It's a kind of Magic

When the movie trailer for Magic Mike hit our screens back in May, heartbeats simultaneously erupted across the Globe.

Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Reid Carolin all in the same film! What more could people ask for? If only the key focal point of the plot involved topless dance routines and the intense story of a stripper. Oh wait……

Magic Mike struck the Big Screen in July, leaving the majority of the nation open mouthed. The plot consisted of around five males whom grasped immense success through their profession of stripping with Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) obtaining centre stage. We won’t bore you with in depth plot details as if you took the correct initiative you would have gone to see it yourself. However, not only did the film involve steamy dance routines but a pleasant love story also unfolded between Magic Mike and Joanna (Olivier Munn) which resulted in Mike spontaneously changing his career.

The film’s popularity has resulted with innovative events being created in Magic Mike’s honor. One such one was an event at Purple Lounge within Leicester Square that hosted a screening of the film last night.

Before the Film kicked of at 8.45pm the audience were treated to a performance by the Purple Lounge’s very own dream idols whom danced excitedly to Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO enabling Magic Mike to spring to reality for just a few moments. The film was screened to celebrate the fact that the Film has finally been released on DVD. Therefore, if for some unknown reason you haven’t yet watched the film, go and purchase now. You won’t be disappointed.
