This is the trailer to Haywire, directed by Steven Soderbergh, starring former MMA fighter Gina Carano and every male actor ever.
The trailer looks great, right?
Watch the first five minutes:
Except for the incredible punchkickfighting in the last two minutes, it looks and sounds like something from a community college film class.
Soderbergh is pretty great for the most part. Traffic is one of my favorite films, and last year’s Contagion was really good. Haywire has Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and Michael Douglas, but also Channing Tatum and Bill Paxton (the Twister guy, not the alien fighter guy). But judging from that five minute clip, this is going to need some work.
But hey, punching!
