A few of you may remember we featured a set of stylish, artistic posters for Steven Soderbergh's action flick Haywire back in May, but had to pull them down. We finally have the first official teaser poster and it's definitely artistic, but not as good as the others. This is apparently just a Comic-Con-specific teaser poster in connection with their big presentation later today. Gina Carano stars in the movie as a "black ops super soldier" and she's going to kick some serious ass. Early word on the Haywire action is great, just look at Edgar Wright's tweet: "[Saw] an extended fight scene from Haywire… I'll call it. Best Fight Scene of 2012."
Haywire is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, following up The Informant and The Girlfriend Experience, from a script by Lem Dobbs, of Soderbergh's The Limey, as well as Dark City and Kafka. In Haywire, an electrifying tale of espionage and betrayal, a female covert ops specialist (Carano), who works in the deadly world of international operatives, strikes back after discovering she's been double-crossed by someone in the agency. The cast includes Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton. Relativity is releasing Haywire on January 20, 2012.
