Opening in theaters on January 20th is the new action-packed spy/revenge film from Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Contagion) called Haywire. The movie marks the feature film debut of women's MMA fighter Gina Carano, and also boasts an impressive cast of all-star actors that includes Ewan McGregor (Beginners), Channing Tatum (The Son of No One), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Bill Paxton (Aliens), Antonio Banderas (The Skin I Live In), and Oscar-winner Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps). Haywire also reunites Soderbergh with screenwriter Lem Dobbs for the first time since their work together on the seminal revenge film The Limey

SYNOPSIS:

Freelance covert operative Mallory Kane (Carano) is hired out by her handler (McGregor) to various global entities to perform jobs that governments can't authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another mission to Dublin. When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks, and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her. 

Haywire explodes into theaters everywhere on January 20th.
