This is a photo of actress and martial artist Gina Carano taken by sports photographer Tom Casino that appeared in the US edition of Maxim. And below that is the cover of Rob Liefeld's Gina Carano Avengelyne Variant , exclusive to Jimmy Jay's Jay Comics. And here's the comic on sale! Exclusive Gina Carano Avengelyne #1 Comic-Con […]
This one was filmed a good while back but will finally get released on April 4th in limited theaters and on VOD.
There's no writer or director yet, but Rob Liefeld and Gina Carano have formed a pact and are planning to build a movie out of Liefeld's Avengelyne character. Indeed, The Hollywood Reporter have learned that there's even a poster for this thing, featuring Carano in character. Liefeld and Carano will be signing copies of the […]
Sylvester Stallone finally gets to say "Expendabelles" himself.
Whereas the original Expendables was about, to some large extent, digging up the dinosaurs of 80s action cinema and giving them another airing, I wouldn't be surprised to see the much-discussed female take on the same tropes stick largely to younger players, such is the sexist-agist nexus in Hollywood. And so it is with the […]
Place your bets now, please.
Plus more pre-production pictures. Costumes, weaponry, fast bikes.
Several actresses 'associated with action movies' being lined up for a new Expendables-styled picture.
For once, the star of a Steven Soderbergh movie might not be Soderbergh himself. Gina Carano, the sometime MMA fighter who toplines his spy film, Haywire, is in almost every scene of the film, including a series of jaw-on-the-floor action set pieces. When she's going at full tilt, she's frankly astonishing to watch. A few […]
There's not a lot known about Fast 6, but what do you want to know? There's going to be cars, there's going to be cops and robbers, and there's more than likely going to be a lot of girls in bikinis because they certainly managed to shoehorn plenty into the series so far. It also […]
This week's two most interesting releases are Coriolanus, reworking Shakespeare as a modern war film, and Haywire, which contains some of the best action you will ever see. Ever. Also on the slate is Chronicle, which is coming on the 1st of February in the UK and the 3rd in the US. I'm sure I'll […]
The heads-in-a-row band across this new UK poster for Haywire spoils the effect somewhat. I wish I could just send it to the cornfield. Steven Soderbergh's answer to Bond and Bourne will finally be in cinemas in January – on the 20th, here in the UK. Bring it on. Thanks to Empire for sharing.
This second trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Haywire begins with a cut down of the already much-discussed hotel fight scene. Broken up like this, the scene's suspense is stamped out, but the raw brutality remains. And when that's done, there's lots more adroitly choreographed action. I like it. At the moment, I don't have an embed, […]
Steven Soderbergh's Haywire will finally be with us in the new year. From all available materials it looks like a lean and aggressive action thriller that has been shot and cut to perfection. This fresh trailer edit comes from the UK and while it's not as all-new as I might have hoped, I'll take it. […]
This trailer is making me homesick. I want to be back with my wife and friends just yammering on about how much I love it. The ensuing, mildly condescending pats on the head would settle me down a touch. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFV0Uvzpz0o[/youtube] I saw the full hotel fight in Comic-Con Hall H a little while ago. It […]
Haywire was allegedly conceived after Steven Soderbergh walked away from a James Bond directing gig, having clashed with Eon over the proposed film's creative direction. At the same time, those I know who have read the Haywire screenplay compared it to the Bourne films. So, it's obviously got some strong ties to the status quo […]
The paps on the Zimbio payroll have done some good work in firing off a total of 79 shots of Ewan McGregor and Gina Carano going at it on a beach. The big fight in question was being staged as a stunt sequence for Stephen Soderbergh's upcoming Haywire, a spy thriller in which mixed martial […]
Haywire, previously known as Knockout, is a globe-trotting spy picture that stars MMA superstar Gina Carano in her first movie role, and also has roles for Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Michael Douglas, Dennis Quaid, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton and Channing Tatum. When the film was first announced, there was some talk that director Steven Soderbergh […]
