Trailer of the Day: Haywire (2011/2)

As I conclude my trailer rounds for this past weekend, I came across this film Haywire, directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring … well a whole bunch of people. I defer to the IMDB for those details.

What caught my attention about the trailer and movie were two things: 1) This film looks nuts and 2) Its US release date is set for January 2012. What? A Soderbergh film released in the ‘dumping ground’ season, what’s that all about? Add to that the fact that the film seems to have sat on a shelf at some point; makes me wonder …

While I ponder what this could mean for the film, let me know what you think? Will you be seeing this film?

[… okay I am done thinking about it. I will probably wait for this one on video, if I hear nothing else]. This does not bode well for my 2012 HFL pick of  Michael Fassbender, but maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

Comments

  1. The January release is certainly a clue here. It doesn’t show a lot of confidence by the studio. Although, given the filmmaker and those cast in this, I’ll be taking this actioner in when it arrives (but then again, I’m a guy ;-)). Watching this, I’m getting flashbacks to ‘Above the Law’, Steven Seagal’s debut movie. There, you had a good director in Andrew Davis (back when the studios let me direct, that is), a somewhat decent story, dynamic fight scenes showcased, and an okay acting job by you-know-who. Hopefully, Gina Carano can do better career-wise. Thanks for the heads-up.
