Steven Soderbergh is a director that would probably stick out like a sore thumb at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. But with two new movies coming out – to be released three months a part – the director has ingratiated himself with the Comic-Con experience by having his films get some exposure to whet appetites. We’ve covered his film Contagion already, giving you the theatrical trailer and the poster, but it is the January release, Haywire, that will be more appealing to those attending Comic-Con. Especially those who like seeing a woman kick ass and take names.
Mixed Martial Artist Gina Carano stars in this action film that features the likes of Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas,
Michael Angarano, and Bill Paxton.
Carano definitely brings the action, but the question remains if Lem Dobbs can deliver a decent story. You may remember Dobbs previously wrote the Soderbergh films Kafka and The Limey. Relativity Media will release Haywire in theaters on January 20, 2012, hoping to attract the same audience that made Taken a super hit and Unknown a modest one.
