‘Haywire’ Trailer: Gina Carano Kicks Channing Tatum’s Butt

by Danica Davidson

This January, you’ll get to see famous MMA fighter Gina Carano kick some major butt as the lead character in the action flick “Haywire.” The Steven Soderbergh-directed revenge thriller had a huge presence at San Diego Comic-Con this year, where the cast and crew debuted the movie’s much-awaited trailer. Here, take a look!

To learn more about “Haywire,” MTV News sat down with Carano and co-star Channing Tatum to get the goods on this fighting-spree movie. When Carano was asked if she were “kicking ass wall-to-wall,” in the movie, she smiled knowingly and answered to the affirmative.

“Yeah, yeah. I like the physical stuff,” she said. “Running and shooting guns and fighting people.”

Did all that include a fight with Channing Tatum?

“This guy?” Carano joked.

Oh, yeah, she gets him in the movie.

“I don’t fare very well,” Tatum said in a strained voice. “Don’t fare very well at all. No, I lose pretty bad, actually. We kind of have a really beautiful opening scene. I like to call it beautiful because it was a symphony of ass-whuppin’. And I was on the receiving end of that.”

But obviously he doesn’t mind. Tatum went on to express his admiration of Carano, including watching her on reality TV. “I’ve been a fan of Gina’s for a long time,” he went on. Carano’s surprise was obvious, and Tatum expressed reservation in admitting to some of his TV choices. “I didn’t want to be the geek, but now I am.”
