'Side Effects,' Steven Soderbergh's alleged final film before retirement, already debuted multiple trailers featuring looks at the Rooney Mara- and Channing Tatum-led cast. The footage itself has been sort of a precursor mini-thriller in that we're left wondering whether our 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' is crazy or her seemingly iffy therapist (Jude Law) has something to do with it. Well, now the plot thickens with more confusion as the new UK international trailer has debuted, revealing more bits of the story.
When Paramount Pictures abruptly decided to pull 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' off their release slate last year - just one month before it was to open - rumors began flying that the reason was to add more Channing Tatum, who unexpectedly became a sizable box office draw thanks to movies like 'The Vow' and '21 Jump Street' but was just a supporting player in the sequel.
Today, 'Joe' producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura has squashed all hope of a significant extra amount of Tatum. Read the producer's words on the matter after the break.
The G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence.
2012 was the Year of the Channing Tatum (and rightfully so - dude was brilliant across the board). He starred in 'Magic Mike,' '21 Jump Street,' 'The Vow' and 'Haywire' (and would've starred in 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' had that film not been pushed back a year). He was named People's "Sexiest Man Alive" and Entertainment Weekly called him one of the "Entertainer of the Year." But all that could be coming to a close as Tatum is looking to take a break and focus on the next phase of his career: directing.
'Side Effects' is a psychological thriller not unlike director Steven Soderbergh's previous film, 'Contagion.' This film stars Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Jude Law wrapped up in the world of pharmaceutical research and experimentation that can have a devastating effect on people's lives. The film hits theaters in 2013 and you can watch the new trailer now.
