Exclusive: Haywire Poster Hits The Web
Gina Carano: killing a bus stop near you

01 December 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Steven Soderbergh's new action/thriller, Haywire, could be his most ferocious, full-bore movie to date. And if he carries through his threat to retire from filmmaking, it may just stay that way - unless, of course, Liberace goes postal in his upcoming HBO biopic.

This punchy new quad gives a flavour of what to expect from the pic: ie bullets, a lot of broken glass, some seriously worried looking dudes, and a few more bullets for good measure. Someone has stitched Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) up and someone is going to pay. To be honest, we're looking at you, Mr. Banderas, with your roguish moustache and experience on Spy Kids.

Carano's character is a black-ops 'super soldier' who goes off the grid and hits back at the CIA handlers who betrayed her and are threatening her family. Soderbergh's strong-looking cast is rounded out by Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas and Bill Paxton, a more-than-decent blend of character acting talent and action chops.


The Limey writer Lem Dobbs reunited with Soderbergh on scripting duties, which should guarantee a DVD commentatory worth owning.

 

Haywire is in UK cinemas from January 20.

Inception much?
Inception has been responsible for many a "Bwaam Bwaam Bwaam" in film trailers since but I never expected them to nick a poster idea from emily page, tut tut tut and obviously the red isnt in keeping with any of the other poster they might as well not even sell this as a Gina Carano movie and I dont mean to sound rude but does anyone who dies in the film trailer deserve to be on the poster? (contreversial thoughts) More
