screen shot 2011 11 10 at 2.03.19 pm New Haywire Trailer: Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and Antonio Banderas are No Match for Gina CaranoMichael Fassbender played a badass superhero in ‘X-Men: First Class.’ Too bad his powers didn’t transfer over to his upcoming movie ‘Haywire.’ In the new trailer for the Steven Soderbergh-directed film, Fassbender’s character, Paul, lures Malory Kane (played by MMA fighter Gina Carano), a government agent, into a hotel room in an effort to neutralize her. Bad idea.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go too smoothly for Fassbender while they were filming this scene, either. As the actor told EW,

[Gina] 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 of.

Fassbender ended up leaving with only a few bruises. ‘Haywire’ hits theaters January 20, 2012. Head over to EW to watch the trailer.
