Yesterday we saw the first poster for the film spotted at Comic-Con but this trailer is what will get you excited for the film.
Fancy a synopsis before the head-kicking-in? Why not.
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.
MMA star Gina Carano takes the lead here and looks to have genuine screen presence as well as a fierce physicality that Soderbergh has done well to capture in the shots on offer here. Michael Fassbender looks suave, Ewan McGregor looks pensive and suspicious while Michael Douglas wears a suit and looks powerful.
Who cares how it all fits together, if Len Dobbs has managed to craft a decent story around the bombastic kicking on show here then we’re on to a winner.
