[WATCH] Slick first trailer for Joseph Gordon Levitt’s directorial debut DON JON

Don Jon

Joseph Gordon-Levitt took Sundance by storm earlier this year with his directorial debut Don Jon (formerly Don Jon’s Addiction), earning rave reviews and causing quite the bidding war.

A new trailer has surfaced for Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming thriller Side Effects, starring Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Jude Law.

[WATCH] Trailer #1 for Steven Soderbergh’s SIDE EFFECTS starring Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum & Jude Law

Side Effects

As the release of Steven Soderbergh’s penultimate film Side Effects draws nearer, we are sadly reminded of how close the talented auteur is to retirement.

[REVIEW] MAGIC MIKE

magic-mike

Magic Mike combines the unlikely worlds of genre-hopping auteur Steven Soderbergh and Floridian male strippers, starring the increasingly interesting Channing Tatum. There’s enough scintillating dance numbers and disrobed actors throughout to satisfy female audience expectations, but this surprisingly artistic film has more on its mind than the beefcake-heavy marketing suggests, with its compelling characters and undercurrent of …

[MINI-REVIEW] HAYWIRE

Haywire

Haywire is another intriguing yet ultimately failed experiment from genre-hopping director Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, The Informant!). MMA star Gina Carano – who Soderbergh and writer Lem Dobbs (The Limey) created the film for – makes her film début as a highly trained operative who is double crossed by her shady boss and left for dead. Carano is often …

[WATCH] BON IVER on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE + Kristen Wiig’s LANA DEL REY impression

bon-iver-snl

Bon Iver were the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, performing two cuts from their phenomenal self-titled LP: the Grammy-nominated ‘Holocene’ and ‘Beth/Rest’. The performances were unsurprisingly great, and thankfully free of the sound issues that haunt most SNL guests, and I just can’t wait to see these guys at the Wellington Town …

[WATCH] First 5 minutes of HAYWIRE, featuring a brutal fight between Gina Carano & Channing Tatum

The film opens January 20 in the US, and we’ve already seen a series of exciting trailers and clips. This week the first …

With Haywire‘s US theatrical release imminent, a third and final trailer has been released for the film that director Steven Soderbergh and writer Lem Dobbs built around MMA star Gina Carano. It’s a slightly extended trailer, but features much of the same footage we’ve seen in the previous trailers, choosing to highlight the action over the relatively simple …

haywireposter

Steven Soderbergh may be retiring soon, but he’s not letting that thought slow down his work-rate. His disease-outbreak thriller Contagion has only just hit cinemas overseas and he’s already released a trailer for his next film: the action-packed Haywire. This film stars mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano as a black ops super soldier who seeks vengeance after she …
