New ‘Haywire’ Trailer and Poster Are Powered by Rocket Fuel

Ordinarily, a straight-up action-thriller like this wouldn’t seem too appealing to me. It’s curious, then, why I’m as excited as I am for Haywire.

The first trailer laid the groundwork for anticipation, focusing a little more on Mallory Kane and her reluctant stowaway than this new one does.Still, I’m invested. Kane is a deadly weapon. She has been trained and employed by “the agency.” But out of nowhere, they try to kill her. Of course…she’s a deadly weapon, so they’re in a little over their heads. Now, she’s on a mission to find out why they tried to get rid of her, and to stop them from doing so. Also, revenge.

Gina Carano leads a cast including Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, and Bill PaxtonHaywire is directed by Steven Soderbergh and reaches theaters January 20, 2012. Check out the trailer and the poster below.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
