AFI Fest's 'secret screening' is Soderbergh's 'Haywire'
The thriller stars mixed martial arts star Gina Carano as a covert operative being hunted by assassins. The movie — also featuring Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender and Ewan McGregor — is Soderbergh's 25th film and is set for release by Relativity Media in January. A question-and-answer session with the filmmaker and some cast members will follow the 9:30 p.m. screening at Grauman’s Chinese theater.
Last year, eventual best-picture nominee "The Fighter" played in AFI Fest's secret spot. The festival, which kicked off in Hollywood on Thursday, is offering free tickets to tonight's 9:30 p.m. screening on a first-come, first-served basis at the AT&T Box Office in the Hollywood & Highland Center until 6 p.m. Sunday.
