Gina Carano Pummels Channing Tatum in Opening Scene of “Haywire” [Video]

Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire debuted last year at the AFI Fest and has been gathering rave reviews ever since. The film opens nationwide next week, but Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Ewan McGreggor, and Antonio Banderas fans can get a sneak peak of the first five minutes of the film right now.

Haywire has only been shown to a handful of people so far but those people unanimously agree that the film is excellent. Haywire currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (only 6 reviews have been posted so far.) Kevin Harley at Total Film writes:

“Hard, fast, brutal: Soderbergh’s sucker-punch return to action knows what it’s about. Not subtle or substantial, but it gets to work with flab-free focus.”

The movie hits theaters on January 20th but to keep the good buzz flowing Hulu has just posted the first five minutes of Haywire online.

Here’s the first five minutes of Haywire, featuring Gina Carano, who plays black-ops super soldier, kicking the crap out of Channing Tatum.

This is one of Carano’s first big acting roles, but it definitely isn’t her first fight as Carano is a former MMA fighter. Tatum said that he was reluctant to hit Carano during their fight scene, you know, because she’s a girl. But the action star quickly learned his lesson.

Tatum said:

“She called me the female P word, and then I had to, for my manity. I hit her and she hit me back twice as hard. Then I didn’t want to hit her anymore.”

Are you excited to see Haywire? Do you think Gina Carano will turn into a female version of Jason Bourne?
