“Put on your shirt Channing Tutum”, said no one ever – except it seems Australia.
It seems the reason behind the ‘censored’ Magic Mike XXL poster is down to a technical error.
Channing Tatum’s is shown on the poster with Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, Matt Bomer and Kevin Nash striking a hot pose, but a poster has emerged in Australia showing the cast with tight white T-shirts on instead, leading to confusion among some fans.
Shortly afterwards, The Mirror reported that these different posters were printed on special paper meaning that the stars appear clothed during the day-time and shirtless at night.
Channing Tatum said earlier this month that he believes men should be objectified in films as much as women, while producer Reid Carolin shared his hope that Magic Mike XXL, which has a 96% female audience, will spark body image discussions.
“We are objectifying men and saying women can look at men the same way men have been looking at women on screen for years,” added Tatum.
