When Angelina Jolie's Salt — a.k.a. the Bourne movie with a chick — came out last summer, Vulture dutifully noted all the other iterations that the Bourne movies have undergone. There was one iteration left off the list, though, and that was: another Bourne movie with a chick! Just revealed today at Comic-Con was the trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, which stars MMA fighter Gina Carano as some sort of lethal secret agent, betrayed and on the run and totally, utterly kicking ass (she does not, however, lose her memory). Not that there's anything wrong with that: As far as Vulture is concerned, there's always room for more movies where one person in the movie punches everyone else in the movie. More worrying: While the supporting roster (Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Antonio Banderas, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas) is ridiculous and the fight scenes are on point, there's something just a bit off here. Maybe it's the hokey voiceover, or the presence of that Britney Spears circa 2003 newsboy cap, but, things feel just a touch B-movie-ish. By the way, how much does Steven Soderbergh love casting non-professional female leads?
