It’s been a while since we discussed the forthcoming movie Haywire, starring MMA fighter Gina Carano, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Douglas. But now there’s a new trailer out, along with a great clip from an interview with Fassbender, who says of his fight with Carano:
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. It was like a camera bulb had gone off.
Fassbender insists he wasn’t seriously hurt, for which we are all thankful! Although you don’t get to see the vase bit, you can check out some of the action in the new trailer below:
