“They put me with an ex-Mossad [Israeli Secret Service Agent]] … He put a GPS  on my car and jumped me out of a hair salon. He gave me a blue gun, and so any time we saw a blue gun … if he jumped us out of any place, we’d have to pull the blue gun, and if we didn’t pull it before the other guy did then we lost. And I lost. He wanted to kidnap me, but Steven Soderbergh said that was a little excessive.”

– Women’s MMA champ Gina Carano, on how director Steven Soderbergh trained her for her role in his new film “Haywire,” in which she plays a double-crossed agent. Steven Soderbergh, you crazy for this one. She also told Conan O’Brien that cage fighting was like having sex. “If you think about it, it’s a very real interaction between to human beings. It’s an energy that nobody else is going to share,” she said. Though hopefully sex involves less punching. [Team Coco]

Channing Tatum’s Next Role: Male Stripper (With Bonus GIF!)

By now, it is a widely known fact that before Channing Tatum made it in Hollywood, he was making it rain in an all-guy revue called “Male Encounter” at a strip club in Florida. And now Channing will be taking that real life experience and using it to inspire a role. Channing will star in “Magic Mike,” a story of a male stripper and his proteges. “This was a wild and pivotal time in my life,” Channing said in a statement. “And I couldn’t be more thrilled to go down the rabbit hole with Steven.”

And by Steven, he means Steven Soderbergh, who is coming out of retirement to direct the movie. Keep reading »

The Boyfriend Experience

By now, you’ve probably heard of “The Girlfriend Experience,” Steven Soderbergh’s new movie about a high-end call girl who charges $2,000 for the privilege of letting guys pretend she’s their girlfriend and who’s played by porn star Sasha Grey. But have you heard of “The Boyfriend Experience”? The crew over at Totally Sketch has created a highly amusing faux trailer for the nonexistent sequel to the GFE feature. This time, the storyline focuses on a nice young woman who has a total jerk for a boyfriend. And guess how much he charges by the hour to ignore you, eat your food, and make a mess everywhere? Well, it’s a heck of a lot more than you’d think. [Cinematical] Keep reading »

New Trailer For Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience”

Check out the new trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s latest movie, “The Girlfriend Experience.” Starring adult film star Sasha Grey as a Manhattan-based, $2,000-an-hour call girl, “The Girlfriend Experience” seeks to peek behind the curtain at what it’s really like to have sex for a living. The “girlfriend experience,” or “GFE,” as it’s known on Craigslist, is a type of escorting in which the woman offers services, as it were, more akin to what a girlfriend would offer than, say, a so-called “hooker,” whether that’s kissing, companionship, or conversation. While several reviewers who screened an unfinished version of the movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival said the movie felt “cold,” and some questioned Soderbergh’s pick of an adult actress in the starring role, the trailer looks pretty awesome. I’m a Soderbergh fan, and while this movie may or may not accurately reflect the reality of the upper-echelon call girl experience, it sure does look pretty. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience Screens At Sundance

The latest buzz at this year’s Sundance Film Festival centers around Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming movie, “The Girlfriend Experience.” The film has gotten tons of attention since it was announced, for two reasons. It’s a peek into the exclusive, mostly unseen world of high-end escorting. And, its star is Sasha Grey, a 20-year-old adult film star. This week, “The Girlfriend Experience” made its debut at the festival, and the reviews range from positive to mixed. Defamer reports: “[A]s Soderbergh films go, it’s in the austere league of ‘Bubble’ and ‘Che,’ likely to confound the average moviegoer and irritate the eager pornhound Grey-ophile — which is kind of how we like him.” Even though it stars a porn star, the movie features no explicit sex, nor, opines Defamer, “any sexiness whatsoever.” Other critics describe “GFE” as “not-half-bad,” “a nuanced character study,” and “fascinating.” Keep reading »
