To further whet your appetite for Gina Carano's upcoming bone-crushing cinematic extravaganza, an official five-minute "Haywire" teaser trailer has been unleashed on the Interwebs.
It gives a feel of the movie's overall texture, and nicely juxtaposes both Gina's acting and combat skills. The pleasant surprise for me was that she is apparently a quite decent actress. Given that her forbears like Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren and Quinton Jackson didn't exactly put Robert de Niro to shame, it was nice to see her competently inhabit her character, and be convincing, even in close-ups.
Carano, a former American Gladiator, stars as a "black ops super-soldier seeking payback after she is betrayed and set up during a mission." Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Haywire also stars Channing Tatum, Ewan MacGregor, Michael Fassbender, Antonio Banderas and Michael Douglas, hitting theaters on January 20, 2012.
Check out the first five minutes of Haywire, after the jump.
