Following her loss to the wrecking machine that is Cristiane Santos, Gina Carano quietly walked away from the sport of MMA. It turns out that though she was all but retired, she was staying busy with the filming of the Steven Soderbergh spy-thriller "Haywire". Carano was cast in the leading role as the film's protagonist, a CIA operative cut loose from the company.

The movie's release was pushed back multiple times before settling into January 20th as the official release date. This usually is the kiss of death for a blockbuster that was originally intended for a summer release. The fine folks at Relativity Media have decided to release the first five minutes of the movie where Carano and Channing Tatum fight in a roadside diner.

The official plot via wikipedia:

Freelance covert operative Mallory Kane (Carano) is hired out by her handler to various global entities to perform jobs that governments can't authorize and heads of state would rather not know about. After a mission to rescue a hostage in Barcelona, Mallory is quickly dispatched on another mission to Dublin. When the operation goes awry and Mallory finds she has been double crossed, she needs to use all of her skills, tricks, and abilities to escape an international manhunt, make it back to the United States, protect her family, and exact revenge on those that have betrayed her.
