After successfully kicking 2012 off with his thriller Haywire, Steven Soderbergh is returning yet again to launch 2013 with the perhaps the first genuinely good wide release of the calendar year with Side Effects. Sadly, with his supposed “retirement” looming it may be the last one we’ll see in quite some time, but after a theatrical trailer, we’ve now got a new one-minute look at the drama.
