This is a pretty weird clip to release from Magic Mike XXL — it is apparently the first time we see Elizabeth Banks’ character, who is surprised to see Channing Tatum’s Mike after he’s been out of the stripper game for a while.

The original Pitch Perfect grossed a modest $65 million at the domestic box office, which was just enough to justify a sequel. Three years later, Pitch Perfect 2 has just passed $160 million on a budget of only $29 million, so yeah, of course Universal is officially moving forward with Pitch Perfect 3. It turns out that a combination of snarky comedy and a capella remixes of pop hits is a license to print money. So much money.
