35mm still lenses and barrel distortion question

Hey everyone!

I just got my Micro35 adaptor and have a lens question:

When I watch real movies I always love how they get such a huge field of view without barrel distortion. When I put a 28mm lens (for example) on my adaptor, I get a huge amount of barrel distortion. How can I get the same huge field of view out of a still lens without barrel distortion?

I just saw Charlie's Angels and they got like half of an entire room into a shot without any barrel distortion.

I believe 28mm are like that. They probably use another lens with a wide angle adapter maybe.
