The second trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Haywire has arrived online thanks to EW. The action thriller stars Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor,Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Angarano, and Mathieu Kassovitz.
Fassbender has been getting a lot of buzz from his upcoming nude scene in Steve McQueen's Shame. The actor recently sat down with EW to talk about the intensity of the fight scenes with Carano.
Here is what Fassbender had to say about a mistake he made while filming action sequence with mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano, who stars in the film as the special-ops agent everyone in the film wants dead:
“I remember it clearly. She is supposed to pick up a vase and it breaks away, and the stunt guy said, ‘She’s going to grab it and hit you on the side of the head. But the one thing that’s important as she swings toward your head is you don’t look at her. You turn your head away and take the hit.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, I got it.’”
“Of course, Gina picked up the vase and I looked right at it,” Fassbender said. There was no serious injury, just a little blinding pain. “It was like a camera bulb had gone off,” he said.
Fassbender plays the "associate agent sent to masquerade with Carano as a wealthy couple touring Dublin, but he’s actually there to double-cross her for their superiors. As the pair enter their hotel room together at the end of a cover mission, a savage, shattering brawl ensues."
