First trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Haywire drops in

The first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's action thriller Haywire has shown up online.

Only hours ago, we were being wowed by footage from the prolific director's latest at Comic-Con.

The movie is bustling with generations of male acting talent, with a cast including (deep breath): Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas, Bill Paxton, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum.

Come the end of this footage though, the person who's guaranteed to stick in your mind is MMA star Gina Carano, looking set to break out into the big leagues with this.

Studios often seem keen to secure another Bourne , and it looks like Soderbergh could deliver just that, with sinister agencies, super-trained assassins and frenetic action aplenty.

Check out the trailer immediately:

Soderbergh is always threatening to retire, but on the strength of this promo, we're hoping he can be persuaded to keep going for a few more years.

Haywire is set to open in the US on 20 January 2012. Soderbergh's other new film, Contagion , is due to arrive this October.
