The problems surrounding the production of 'Jane Got a Gun' are officially legion: just days after losing its director on the first day of shooting, Jude Law has departed the project, leaving one of the film's three leading roles empty. We expect to soon hear about a swarm of locusts descending upon the set.
Press screenings of Steven Soderbergh's 'Side Effects' -- supposedly the director's final theatrical film before his self-imposed retirement -- were carefully monitored for latecomers. Stragglers who arrived after the screening began were greeted by signs like this one, reading that "due to the non-linear nature of this film, it would be unrewarding for you to enter at this point." This sort of thing is fairly unprecedented at press screenings (at least in my 10 or so years of experience), but they do resemble warnings that were placed outside theaters back in 1960, when what would become one of the most famous movies in Hollywood history was released to theaters -- a knowing wink from "The Filmmakers," as they signed their note, indicating their inspiration in this endeavor. That inspiration can be found here -- but be warned that clicking that link could probably be considered a spoiler.
'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.
Is there anything more exciting than a new film from cinema's favorite madman, Werner Herzog? Is there anything less exciting than a boxing comedy from the director of 'Get Smart'? Your personal answers may vary based on taste and pretension. Anyway, the former has cast Jude Law and the latter Kim Basinger.
'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.
We originally tried using this space to explain the article/photo gallery below. But there really is no explaining the article/photo gallery below other than a) yes, we know it makes no sense, and b) it makes us laugh
Wes Anderson's next film, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is already amassing quite the cast, which is no surprise when it comes to the director's work. And now another name can be added to the list: Jude Law, who confirms that he is indeed starring in the film, and admits he "pestered" Anderson for a part in one of his movies for years.
The integer 360 represents the number of degrees in a perfect circle, but it also marks the amount of times you'll turn to the person next to you and say "oh, you've got to be kidding me!" as you watch Fernando Merielles' film of the same name.
This latest entry into the "we're all connected" subgenre fails on its most basic level - only a handful of the characters actually are connected and even fewer of them experience any change at the conclusion of the film. Merielles' motive may have been to show how our actions effect the world around us, but his methods are to film a whole bunch of micro scenes with as many actors as possible and hope that something he slaps against the screen sticks.
