So, we may have had four weeks of movies already in the new year, but frankly, 2013 doesn't start for us cinematically until next week, when Steven Soderbergh's "Side Effects" arrives. It seems to be the first movie of the year that wasn't dumped or forgotten about by the studios, and made with some real intent and purpose. And now another whole new look at the picture has arrived.

Steven Soderbergh’s penultimate film “Side Effects” is, for many people, the first film of 2013 that’s worth seeing. Starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the psychological thriller already unveiled a couple of clips, and now three more have arrived for people to take a gander at before the movie comes out a week from now.

Now that Steven Soderbergh's hiatus from film has finally arrived (read our discussion with him here), alongside speculation on the director's next professional move comes reflection on his career thus far. One of his most involved projects -- an adaptation of '60s spy show “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” -- was scrapped in late 2011 after years of development, but now Soderbergh's longtime collaborator has finally revealed what could've been.

Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is winding down and this has been the case for a while now. His five-year plan meant retiring from filmmaking at the age of 50. Having just reached this touchstone earlier this month, Soderbergh is essentially done with the business of moviemaking. His final theatrical film, “Side Effects” starring Rooney Mara, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones, is complete and his final, final film, “Behind The Candelabra,” is also complete and will air on HBO later this year following a likely premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. So what’s left? Aside from promoting these last two movies, he’s done… for now.

While he didn't say it as succinctly in our interview with him this weekend, though director Steven Soderbergh is retiring from filmmaking for the time being, that doesn't mean he's retiring, period. The filmmaker told The Playlist while his second-to-last movie, "Side Effects," is due in theaters next week (his final one with Matt Damon and Michael Douglas arrives on HBO in the spring), he also added that directing plays or TV is still an option.

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.

Steven Soderbergh Offered To Edit 'The Canyons', Lindsay Lohan Was Fired & The Saga Of Paul Schrader's Troubled Film

There are a few ways to start this article. We could talk about the film's indie cred, with its Kickstarter-fueled funding and low-budget, digital-filmmaking approach. We could talk about it being a cautionary tale about working with Lindsay Lohan (more on that in a moment). But instead, we'll start with this quote from the film's screenwriter, Bret Easton Ellis, about the Paul Schrader-directed "The Canyons": “The film is so languorous. It’s an hour 30, and it seems like it’s three hours long. I saw this as a pranky noirish thriller, but Schrader turned it into, well, a Schrader film.”

Steven Soderbergh Says 'Behind The Candelabra' Was Rejected By Hollywood Studios For Being "Too Gay"

This holiday season we have movies about slavery, the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, the travails of a mid-life crisis, the crumbling of small-town life in America and more, so you might think that, despite Hollywood's turn toward the blockbuster, there's still hope that compelling stories can get out into the marketplace no matter what the budget. Well, you would be wrong. Executives still want that magical four quadrant hit, something that can be branded, bring them prestige, make an attractive product for ancillary markets and/or all of the above. And as Steven Soderbergh shares, not even having two big names as stars could get him the money he needed for "Behind The Candelabra."

Dear Open Road, can you spare a dime to show a trailer that's essentially not just a cut down version of what we've seen before? Ah well, whatevs. Steven Soderbergh has one last theatrical release in the can before retirement and it's called "Side Effects" (yeah, there's "Behind The Candelabra" still, and while it may premiere at Cannes, it's going to air stateside on HBO).
