The first trailer for director Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller Side Effects has been released. Rooney Mara stars as a troubled young woman who develops a dangerous love triangle between her doctor (Jude Law) and her newly paroled husband (Channing Tatum). It’s tough to get a grasp on exactly what the film’s about from this trailer, but I was sold the minute I heard “Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller.” The film also reunites the filmmaker with his Contagion screenwriter Scott Z. Burns. Mara’s proven herself to be an incredibly strong actress, and it appears we may get some intense performances from her, Tatum, and Law. Moreover, Side Effects may or may not be Soderbergh’s second-to-last film ever, as the Liberace biopic Behind the Candleabra is the only other film the director is set to release for the foreseeable future.

You’re driving down the street, and it’s suddenly blocked off. You notice these weird yellow signs with nonsensical letters or numbers. There’s unusual glow lighting up a neighborhood you can’t usually see from your house. What you might have here is a film company shooting in your town. It happens a lot, and you never know where they might pop up…until now.
The following is a semi-comprehensive list of films currently shooting, what they’re shooting, and where they’re shooting. We’ll be telling you where you might get to see the very famous, the kinda famous and (if all goes well) the soon-to-be famous. While we can’t list every single movie, television show, or student film in production, you’ll get a pretty good idea of what the heck is going on where all those people are buzzing about.

Open Road has staked out a release date for director Steven Soderbergh’s now-filming “psychopharmacological thriller” Bitter Pill. Per Deadline, the film will open on February 8th, 2013. Currently, the only other pic slated for that pre-Valentine’s Day date is the Nicholas Sparks adaptation Safe Haven. Bitter Pill stars Rooney Mara as a troubled young woman who develops a dangerous love triangle with her doctor (Jude Law) and her recently-paroled husband (Channing Tatum).
We recently got a look at Mara’s very un-Dragon Tattoo-like look for the film by way of some set photos, and Soderbergh currently has Bitter Pill tee’d up to be his penultimate film before he takes a hiatus from filmmaking. He plans on filming the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon this summer, though that film is being made for HBO so Bitter Pill could very well be Soderbergh’s final theatrical release. His next film, Magic Mike, opens this summer.
We’ve got a few set photos to share with you today. Briefly:
- Bitter Pill – Rooney Mara sports a vastly different look for Stephen Soderbergh’s psychopharmacology thriller Bitter Pill. Mara stars as a troubled young woman who develops a dangerous love triangle between her doctor and her recently paroled husband. Jude Law and Channing Tatum also star.
- Lucky Dog – Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti, and Sally Hawkins are seen filming scenes as two con men who hatch a get-rich-quick scheme to sell Christmas trees in NY.
- Now You See Me – Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Isla Fisher were spotted on the set of Louis Letterier’s (Clash of the Titans) magician-centered heist thriller. The film opens on January 18th, 2013.
