So far, the 2013 movie season has been pretty dreadful. Aside from Oscar-nominated pictures going into wider release, there hasn’t been much to choose from at the multiplex, but relief is around the corner. Steven Soderbergh continues the run into his hiatus with one of two movies he’ll be dropping this year, the thriller “Side Effects.” A brand new U.K. trailer featuring lots of new footage has arrived to serve up a fresh look at the film.
Starring Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones the story centers on a young woman who turns to pills to deal with the anxiety when her husband is released from prison. But they don’t put those warnings in those TV ads for nothing, and soon a lot of freaky stuff starts happening, with murder, sex, blackmail and all kinds of unsavory stuff seemingly coming into play. Screenwriter Scott Z. Burns has said that the movie is his attempt at a “modern noir” and this latest look certainly has that flavor.
