SDCC 2011: Official Poster And Stills From Soderbergh's HAYWIRE

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Though Steven Soderbergh appears to be quite serious about his impending retirement he also appears determined to go out with a bang. The man has two features coming to theaters soon and both are already drawing major interest. Releasing in September is his viral apocalypse thriller Contagion. Then following on January 20th will be action picture Haywire.

This dynamic action-thriller directed by Oscar® winner Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) boasts a talented cast that includes Channing Tatum (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra), Ewan McGregor (The Ghost Writer), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Antonio Banderas (The Legend of Zoro), Bill Paxton ("Big Love"), Michael Douglas (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous); and introduces mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar Gina Carano as Mallory Kane, in a demanding lead role that has her performing her own high-adrenaline stunts.

Mallory Kane is a highly trained operative who works for a government security contractor in the dirtiest, most dangerous corners of the world. After successfully freeing a Chinese journalist held hostage, she is double crossed and left for dead by someone close to her in her own agency. Suddenly the target of skilled assassins who know her every move, Mallory must find the truth in order to stay alive.

Using her black-ops military training, she devises an ingenious--and dangerous--trap. But when things go haywire, Mallory realizes she'll be killed in the blink of an eye unless she finds a way to turn the tables on her ruthless adversary.
Some teaser art from Haywire leaked out early a few months back, only to be quickly removed following a flurry of cease and desist letters from the designer. But what you've got up above is the first official look at the poster art along with two stills below.
