Gina Carano Beats Up Channing Tatum in First Five Minutes of Haywire
01.10.12 by Jud
It's official. In the first five minutes of director Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, Gina Carano proves she's the first female action star fans will actually believe is able to kick Channing Tatum's ass.
Don't believe us? You can now watch those first five minutes online. Check out Carano and Tatum's altercation at a diner — a scene that features heavily in already released trailers and clips. More Bourne than Salt, the fight scene is close and brutal, with Carano showing her physicality and taking as much as she gives.
Haywire is about a freelance operative (Carano) who works for a government security contractor. When she is "double-crossed and left for dead by someone close her in her own agency," she must act quickly and decisively to save herself and her family.
Haywire also features plenty of other Hollywood hunks who will presumably have their backsides handed to them by the former MMA fighter, including Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Michael Douglas, and Michael Angarano.
