It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from the front of Gone Girl pair David Fincher and Gillian Flynn’s Utopia adaptation at HBO, but with Fincher’s Video Synchronicity seemingly on ice, Utopia may again rise. And what better way to get things moving, than reuniting with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara?

On the master list of characters who deserve exhausting origin stories that go into every single detail about how they came to be, Peter Pan is somewhere near the very bottom. So we can get all smug and dismissive of the new Pan trailer, which has its fair share or eye-rolling moments, or we can get excited that director Joe Wright has a new film on the horizon and hope for the best.

'Side Effects' Review

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.

It's been a decent while since 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' premiered in theaters, launching Rooney Mara into stardom and giving Daniel Craig yet another beefy role to add to his resume. Despite the less-than-expected box office numbers, Sony was and still is planning the next sequel, 'The Girl Who Played With Fire.' So what's taking so long? Well, apparently they're weighing whether or not to cut Craig's character out of the script.

'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.
