Channing Tatum Haywire interview slice

With director Steven Soderbergh’s spy-action pic Haywire opening January 20th, this past weekend I got to sit down with most of the cast to talk about making the movie.  Staring MMA fighter Gina Carano as a burned spy who takes revenge against her handlers, Haywire also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Bill Paxton.  I’ve seen Haywire twice now and it’s fantastic.  On top of Carano’s star-making performance, the action scenes are some of the best I’ve seen in years.   It’s absolutely something you should see in a theater.

During my interview with Tatum we talked about how he got involved in Haywire and what excited him about the project, filming the awesome action scenes, and working with Soderbergh.  In addition, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation arriving this summer, I asked what can fans look forward to in the sequel.  Hit the jump to watch.

Watch the First 5 Minutes of Steven Soderbergh’s HAYWIRE

It’s safe to say that Steven Soderbergh’s action pic Haywire looks fantastically badass. Both Brendan and I chose it as one of our most anticipated films of 2012’s first quarter, and now the first five minutes of the film are online for your viewing pleasure. While I’ve refrained from watching it as I’d like to go into the movie fresh, if you’re on the fence about the pic I highly suggest you check it out. They showed the first trailer at last year’s Comic-Con and I wasn’t too impressed, but immediately afterward Soderbergh screened a fight sequence between star/MMA fighter Gina Carano and Michael Fassbender that blew me away. Among the wealth of movie goods we were privy to at Comic-Con, that fight has stuck with me and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the film plays out.

Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and Bill Paxton. Haywire opens January 20th.

New Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s HAYWIRE Starring Gina Carano

by     Posted 2 years, 253 days ago

haywire-image-gina-carano-slice

A new trailer for director Steven Soderbergh’s spy-action pic Haywire has gone online. The movie centers on a burned spy (MMA fighter Gina Carano) who takes revenge against her handlers. Soderbergh has surrounded Carano with a stellar ensemble of familiar faces (including Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, and Michael Douglas), and the action scenes here look absolutely brutal. This new trailer delves a bit more into the plot, and it’s actually a tad spoiler-heavy by way of revealing a couple of the deaths that take place onscreen. Soderbergh’s an incredibly interesting director, and I’m intrigued to see how he handles a film this action-heavy  so it’s safe to say I’m anticipating Haywire quite a bit.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, and Bill Paxton. Haywire opens January 20th.

Top 10 Posters of 2011

top-10-posters-2011-slice

The best movie posters come from Mondo, other art-boutiques, and individual artists who take their passion for a film and turn it into something that every fan has to own.  Studios don’t have that luxury.  They need to sell a movie to an audience that has no idea what they’re in for.  They need to find a way to appeal to everyone, or at least get their attention.  Usually studios go for the dull route of floating movie star heads and/or blue-orange color schemes.  My picks for the best studio-produced posters of 2011 were the posters that went beyond and tried to do something better.

New Posters for THE AVENGERS and HAYWIRE

by     Posted 2 years, 268 days ago

New posters have gone online for The Avengers and Haywire.  Marvel seems to be taking a page from Warner Bros’ Harry Potter playbook by churning out as many character posters as possible between now and the arrival of the movie.  We’ve already seen the character banners, but now Marvel is disassembling these banners into individual posters.

There’s also a new poster for Haywire and it shares the same eye-catching design as the previous one-sheets.  It even makes the actors’ face-boxes look cool.  Hit the jump to check out the new posters.  Haywire opens January 20, 2012.  The Avengers opens in 3D on May 4, 2012.

With director Steven Sodebergh‘s spy-action flick Haywire opening January 20th, Relativity Media has provided us with two exclusive images from the film.  Staring MMA fighter Gina Carano as a burned spy who takes revenge against her handlers, Haywire also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Bill Paxton.  I caught Haywire last week at the AFI Fest in Hollywood and thought it was great.  Especially the action scenes.   While Carano’s acting still needs a bit of work, whenever she’s punching or killing, she’s fantastic.  Haywire should definitely be on your radar.  Hit the jump for the new images and synopsis.  You can also check out the latest trailer here.

With the holiday movie season upon us, a few new images from some of the upcoming Oscar contenders have been unveiled.

New Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s HAYWIRE

by     Posted 2 years, 308 days ago

haywire-image-gina-carano-slice

A new trailer for Steven Sodebergh‘s spy-action flick Haywire has gone online.  The film stars MMA fighter Gina Carano as a burned spy who takes revenge against her handlers.  The new trailer again sells the basic concept: here’s a woman who’s really hot, and she’ll hit you so hard that all of your progeny will feel pain.  The plot looks like standard spy-movie fare, but it appears that Soderbergh is setting his movie apart by embracing the brutality of the fight scenes between Carano and her male co-stars, and questioning how far the audience is willing to go when it comes to seeing a woman getting hit even though she’s holding her own in the fight.

Hit the jump to check out the new trailer.  The film also stars Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, and Bill PaxtonHaywire opens January 20, 2012.

How do you follow a panel with Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson?  You don’t do it with another blockbuster.  Instead, you take some lesser known movies and attempt to boost their profile.  And for film nerds, having Steven Sodebergh on hand certainly doesn’t hurt.  Soderbergh has cast MMA fighter Gina Carano as the lead in his spy thriller Haywire and surrounded her with an outstanding cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, and Michael Douglas.

Relativity has also brought James McTeigue’s The Raven starring John Cusack, Alice Eve, and Luke Evans.  It’s an intriguing premise where Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) and a detective (Evans) attempts to discover who is using his writing as the inspiration for a series of murders.  Hit the jump to read about Relativity’s presentation for Haywire and The Raven.

There’s plenty of good stuff to see at this year’s Comic-Con.  There’s too much good stuff.  You could clone yourself seven times and you and your many selves still probably couldn’t see everything worth seeing.   I am without a cloning machine (damn you, lazy scientists) and I will be covering only Hall H this year.  After the jump, I’ve listed the five panels I’m most interested in seeing in Hall H as well as the five panels I wish I could attend outside of Comic-Con’s biggest room.
