SEE “MAGIC MIKE XXL,” MEET “CHANNING TATUM” ON TUESDAY, JUNE 30
Madame Tussauds Las Vegas’ Channing Tatum to Be on Red Carpet for 7 p.m. Film Screening on June 30
On Tuesday, June 30, moviegoers will have the chance to meet “Channing Tatum,” the star of “Magic Mike XXL,” at Town Square’s AMC Theater, courtesy of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. Fans are encouraged to get up close and personal with a dashingly attired—but still super-hot—wax figure of Tatum. Whether they opt to canoodle with the sexy star, give him a smooch, slip a hand inside his jacket or, of course, snap a selfie with him—all is fair game and completely encouraged. His figure will be front and center on the red carpet at the theater beginning at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30, just in time for the first showing of “Magic Magic XXL,” which is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tatum will be on the red carpet until 9 p.m. that night.
Known for his roles in “Magic Mike” and now its sequel, “Magic Mike XXL”; “21 Jump Street” reboot and the Oscar-nominated “Foxcatcher,” Tatum will be dressed to thrill in his dapper dark suit.
Madame Tussauds has more than 200 years of history and experience in making wax figures. Each masterpiece takes up to six months and a team of 20 dedicated artists to create. Based from over 300 precise body measurements, the figure is first sculpted in clay by hand and covered in a plaster cast. Once the clay is removed from the cast, the wax is poured in and allowed to cool. Finally, the figure is fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth; hairs on the head and face are inserted individually by hand, and countless layers of paints and tints are applied to build up skin tones – all to achieve an astonishingly lifelike figure.
Fan photos with Tatum will be available on Madame Tussauds’ Facebook page on July 1 at www.Facebook.com/MadameTussaudsLasVegas.
