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.
A brand new trailer for the thriller has dropped, mixing up lots of new footage with stuff we've seen already. But the basic premise is the same: Rooney Mara plays a young woman who is prescribed medication to deal with her crippling anxiety, but things go from bad to worse, and her doctor (Jude Law) gets roped into what looks like a pretty nefarious affair. Basically, if you haven't seen the movie it's best to go in without knowing anything at all -- or so we're told --- so proceed with caution below.
"Side Effects" takes off the child-proof top on February 8th.
