New trailer for Haywire
"You shouldn't think of her as being a woman, that would be a mistake" - is the closing line for the trailer which tells you what to expect from the star of the Steven Soderbergh action thriller Haywire, Gina Carano. As most will know by now she's a fighter, a real fighter, a mixed martial arts fighter and specialises in Muay Thai, something I'm sure we're going to see in the film.
Picked by Soderbergh to star alongside Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum, Bill Paxton, Mathieu Kassovitz and Michael Angarano, she's really been propelled forward in her career.
The question now is can she make something of it, and judging from the trailers we've seen so far she's certainly got the film to do that. While Steven Soderbergh will have undoubtedly chosen her for her ability to really fight and the fact that she's extremely good looking and sexy, he's not going to let her off without acting too, and that's why I have high hopes for this film - Soderbergh and the cast around her.
Haywire tells the story of a special operations agent who is betrayed during a mission and the people who control her attempt to shut her down for good. However she can handle just about anything they throw at her, and she does, escaping the trap and heading on a run of revenge, with a side dish of explanation thrown in.
The latest trailer doesn't give us much more of the film, but it has new footage and a new cut, so it's not just more of the same.
