New Poster for Soderbergh's 'Haywire' Cracks At Least One Skull

Last month, the Steven Soderbergh-directed thriller Contagion made a surprisingly big pop-cultural impact for an uncompromising film about an event as unpleasant as a viral pandemic, but for his next feature, the auteur behind Traffic, The Limey, Ocean's Eleven, Erin Brokovich, The Informant!, Out of Sight, and Sex, Lies, and Videotape is having some fun with his first ever straight-up action movie, Haywire.  Relativity Media has released a new official one sheet for the film, and it makes it abundantly clear that leading lady Gina Carano is not to be trifled with.  The poster makes this point with a stylishly stripped-down approach.

As the tagline asserts, "They Left Her No Choice."  Carano plays Mallory Kane, a highly trained secret operative for a private security contractor who suddenly and inexplicably finds herself betrayed by her organization and those who she trusted with her life.  Out of a natural sense of self-preservation and a healthy desire for payback, Kane must find out the truth while being hunted by professional assassins.

A professional Mixed Martial Arts star, Gina Carano makes her feature debut in Haywire, and given her background, she wasn't going to miss out on executing her own stunts.  In fact, Steven Soderbergh explained at San Diego Comic-Con that the entire concept for the film came about when he happened to see Carano fighting on television and realized that someone should structure an action movie around the beautiful ass-kicker.

Supporting Carano in her first film role is a top-notch cast, including the likes of Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, and Michael Angarano, many of whom will presumably get knocked out by the leading lady.

Haywire is scheduled to hit theaters on January 20, 2012.

Full Disclosure: Haywire is produced by Relativity Media, iamROGUE'S parent company.
