Tuesday night, Warner Bros. hosted a special “Ladies Night Out” advance screening of their new film, Magic Mike XXL, in Atlanta. The screening opened up with a choreographed dance from some hot & steamy looking guys, who welcomed the ladies in attendance. As the ladies were screaming with excitement, they were then hit with the big surprise of the night that one of the film’s stars, Mrs. Jada Pinkett Smith, was there to introduce the movie to the audience.

Some of Atlanta’s leading ladies also came out to join in on the festivities including Porsha Williams, who celebrated her birthday at the screening, along with gal pals Phaedra Parks (Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), Monyetta Shaw (VH1’s Atlanta Exes), Keshia Knight Pulliam (Actress), celebrity hairstylist Gocha Hawkins and Sarah Vivan.

Pinkett Smith also participated in a press conference earlier that day to discuss the highly anticipated sequel. She plays “Rome,” a woman from Mike’s past who is now the impresario of a one-of-a-kind exotic entertainment palace. The veteran actress, who had never been to a strip club before, says, “When I saw how exhilarating it was to be with other women in that environment and see how much joy they were getting from celebrating these beautiful men and really exploring that primal nature within us, it was an eye-opening experience for me.”
