Of course, we already knew that. But when a director can’t even be bothered to come up with some spin about “managing expectations” and “making it up in the international market,” you know a film is pretty much fucked. As the jerkoff TMZ cameraman puts it, “all of ‘em can’t be great successes.” Very comforting. Does this mean Gina Carano is going back into hiding for another two years?

And the Winner of the Haywire Caption Contest Is…


(“I’d like you to go in there and switch outfits with Ewan. And that’s not a suggestion if you ever want to work in Hollywood again.”)

We had some somewhat hilarious (and many, many more not so hilarious) entries in last week’s Haywire caption contest, but unfortunately for everyone else who wanted a shirt with a picture of Gina Carano choking out Michael Fassbender on it, there can only be one winner.

First, let’s take a look at our runners up, who win nothing but the satisfaction of knowing they made someone nearly laugh kinda smile with something they posted on the Internet.

Here are some of our *other* favorites in no particular order:

Kid Clam Curtains:
Steven: “…so you combine the two words and you get the term ‘gunt’.”
.
Gina: “Haha NOW it makes sense.”
.
Ewan: “Wait, I still don’t get it.”

Tyr:
Ewan McGregor: “Ooohhh you beat up people for a living, i thought you said beat off…. Well this is awkward.”

NomadRip:
Soderbergh: “Seriously. That guy that just left. Paxton or Pullman? I have no idea.”

scottdy:
“You realize I could kill you and the chick with the scarf in the blink of any eye?”

shatterproof:
Gina Carano and Ewan McGregor meet a young jewish boy riddled with cancer. Another wish fulfilled.

Check out the winner after the jump.

If you simply can’t wait until January to watch Gina Carano pretend to be Jason Bourne and you live within a reasonable distance to Hollywood, you’re in luck as “Haywire” has just been added to the line-up for this weekend’s AFI Film Festival according to The Playlist.

The best part is, tickets for the screening of the Steven Soderbergh film are absolutely free.

Remember to Go See Gina Carano at Comic-Con 2011 Tomorrow


(“Stupid rental car.”)

Unless you’re Ben, in which case you can’t be within 200 yards of “Conviction,” and you’re heading to Comic-Con 2011 tomorrow, remember to go check out the Haywire Q&A with Gina Carano and director Steven Soderbergh from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Hall H.

If you do go make sure you ask Gina some of the questions below that we all want answers to, like:

What was the “medical condition” you had?

When are you fighting next?

Did Antonio Banderas hit on you during filming?

Are you pregnant?

Is it Randy’s?

Did Kit Cope hypnotize you or was it roofies?

What was the best item on the craft services table?

Could you drop the restraining order against Goldstein?

What is your phone number?

Check out another new photo from the movie and the synopsis of the film, (whose release has been delayed until January 20, 2012) after the jump.

Scott Coker Thinks Gina Carano Will Be Back Fighting for Strikeforce This Year


("I’m not sure what this has to do with the movie, Mr. Spielberg, but if you say Kate Capshaw auditioned topless, I’m cool with it, too.")

Well, it looks like Scott Coker is still under the impression that the former face of his promotion, Gina Carano will be back competing for Strikeforce this year. 

While on MMAFighting.com’s The MMA Hour Monday, Coker said that he’s confident that the former Strikeforce female 145-pound standout who hasn’t fought since losing her strap to Cris "Cyborg" Santos 17 months ago in August of 2009 will make her much-anticipated return before the end of 2011 — a lofty claim he made last year as well, that didn’t materialize.

"I believe she’ll be back in the cage this year. From what I know of her, she is a competitor at heart; she’s going to want to fight," Coker told Ariel Helwani. "She’s not going to want to end her career the way it ended. So, I think she’ll be back."
