Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.22.11] movie trailer news action thriller

Looks like before he calls it a day as a director, Steven Soderbergh is going to pump out as many movies as he can. In addition to Contagion (trailer) which opens September 9th, Soderbergh has an action thriller titled Haywire scheduled for release in January of 2012.

With MMA star Gina Carano (performing all of her own stunts) and a long cast list including Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas and Bill Paxton, this action thriller stars Canano as Mallory Kane.

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.

The trailer features a wide assortment of stunts but I have to admit it failed to get my blood pumping. I'm all for Soderbergh playing in this arena but I hope the movie has more energy than the trailer does.
