I know there are a lot of movies hyped at CCI: San Diego, but Haywire from Steven Soderbergh and Relativity Media looks interesting enough for me to want to know more.

This dynamic action-thriller directed by Oscar® winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) boasts a talented cast that includes Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra), Ewan McGregor (The Ghost Writer), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Antonio Banderas (The Legend of Zoro), Bill Paxton (“Big Love”), Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous); and introduces mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano as Mallory Kane, in a demanding lead role that has her performing her own high-adrenaline stunts.
Mallory Kane is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who know her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.
Using her black-ops military training, she devises an ingenious—and dangerous—trap. But when things go haywire, Mallory realizes she’ll be killed in the blink of an eye unless she finds a way to turn the tables on her ruthless adversary.

    WOW. I dont even know where to start!

    1. I would love to watch Gina Carano on screen for any period of time
    2. There are a DUMP load of legit actors in this film!
    3. Soderberghs reputation has me sway to the pros more than the cons

    While watching this I thought about Point of No Return with Bridget Fonda, which was a fave of mine in my younger years because it had a hot chick that could kick my ass up and down. If this trailer is the tip of that similar vibe iceberg…Im in!

    Looks kinda like a female Bourne, based on the preview. Watchable, at least.
