    We're a couple of weeks away from the arrival of the actioner "Haywire," the first of two Steven Soderbergh films getting released this year (to be followed by male stripper drama "Magic Mike" in the summer), but with the director's retirement/hiatus from filmmaking looming, he's not hanging around....

    Now and Then: In 'Contagion' and 'Children of Men,' Disaster Runs Cold and Hot

    The opening minutes of "Contagion" are all surface, literally. A bowl of peanuts on the bartop, a swiped credit card, an elevator button, the human hand: each is a vector of death itself, a pandemic already in motion. With the rasp of a cough, a title card tells us we're in "Day 2." It's terrifying....

    Soderbergh's 'Haywire' is Kick-Ass: Trailers and Early Reviews UPDATED

    I finally saw Steven Soderbergh's "Haywire" (January 20) at Relativity Media's Hollywood premiere at the DGA Thursday night. In his intro, Soderbergh said, "I happened upon Gina Carano beating a woman up in a cage." The way to make it even better? Have her beat the crap ...

    She's Here: New Clip, Trailer & Pics From Steven Soderbergh's 'Haywire'

    For a guy who is set to retire/take a hiatus from filmmaking, Steven Soderbergh couldn't be more busy. "Contagion" just hit theaters last fall, the stripper pic "Magic Mike" is wrapped and headed to theaters this summer, and oh yeah, he's got another movie, finished for a...

    What Happened to Contagion?

    It’s completely disappeared from any awards conversation, including, incredibly, best screenplay and direction. When I saw it, I thought it was the second great movie of the decade.

    First Look: Channing Tatum & Matthew McConaughey In Male Stripper Film 'Magic Mike'

    Perhaps we're not quite as excited for this film as E! Online writer Ted Casablanca, whose breathless reports about the picture are kind of amusing (even straight guys didn't write this breathlessly about, say, "Showgirls," did they?), but two Steven Soderbergh films in one year ain't too bad.

    New Images Of Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas & Michael Angarano In Steven Soderbergh's 'Haywire'

    Traditionally, January is something of a wasteland for the movies; as the last of the awards season pictures roll out, studios tend to use it to dump product that they know won't set the world alight critically or commercially. This year is, for the most part, no exception: dicey prospects like foun...

    Steven Soderbergh On Gina Carano In 'Haywire': "It's So Satisfying Watching Her Beat The Shit Out Of The Cast"

    With Steven Soderbergh's next next next film being announced earlier in the week as psychological thriller "The Bitter Pill" his next, "Haywire" (shot before "Contagion," but released after, although still ahead of the just-wrapped "Magic Mike") is getting...
