‘Magic Mike XXL’ Was Extremely Popular With The Ladies, Breaking Record Set By ‘Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants’

According to CinemaScore, women love traveling pants, but they love the situation going on inside Channing Tatum’s pants even more. Magic Mike XXL had a record 96% turnout for females this holiday weekend. This beats Sisterhood Of The The Traveling Pants (94%) and Sex And The City 2 (90%).

Sadly, the record female turnout didn’t produce a huge opening for the film. During its first five days, the Magic Mike sequel took in just $26.6 million. And over $25 million of that total came from women wanting to see Tatum work his magic on stage. That’s an insane number. I think Conan O’Brien was the only man who actually watched the movie.

Despite the disappointing opening, the film will still make a decent profit. Reports say the production budget was just $14.8 million, so the film has already doubled its costs when you look at the $32.8 million worldwide gross.

The first film made $39 million during its first three days and finished with an impressive $167 million worldwide. Obviously the sequel won’t touch those numbers, but you can’t say it wasn’t successful. It’s already made a profit, and the women who watched the movie absolutely loved it. Audiences hit it with an A- CinemaScore, which is a better grade than the first film.

Not bad, Channing.
