New Haywire Trailer Kicks In

Don’t you just hate it when you’ve been out for a classy night of cocktails and dancing, and then your partner turns out to be double crossing you, leading to a knock-down, drag-out clash that sees you beating the ever-living crap out of each other? What? Never happened to you? From the evidence of this, it happens to CIA-trained assassin Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) far too much for comfort. See the results for yourself in the new trailer for Haywire over at EW.

Steven Soderbergh is the man behind this ace-looking action thriller, which finds Carano’s hit girl suddenly having to deal with her former handlers turning on her. Out on her own, she’ll have to rely on her wits, her speed and her furious fighting skills to survive.

Building a film around an MMA fighter who has never acted before might sound like a risky move, but it’s the sort of gutsy idea Soderbergh thrives on. Plus, he’s surrounded her with talent such as Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Channing Tatum and Michael Fassbender, who you can see getting smacked around in those early scenes.

And the movie is already drawing some healthy buzz in the US following a “stealth” screening at the AFI. Watch the trailer and tell us you don’t fall a little bit in love with/in fear of Carano.

Haywire is out on January 20.

The whole thing seems like a massive piss-take to me. ow so? I think it looks pretty fucking great. Steven Soderberg doing a full on action thriller with Fassbender (in what I assume is an all too brief role), Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum and Michael Douglas, and what appears to be little us More
