New posters revealed for Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Side Effects’ and Park Chan-Wook’s ‘Stoker’

A couple of new posters have hit the Net today, so let’s take a look shall we.

First off is a new poster for Steven Soderbergh’s new thriller Side Effects, and the statement made here is that “one pill can change your life”.

Side Effects is directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion). The film stars Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jude Law, Vinessa Shaw, David Costabile and Gregg Paul. The film will be released in UK cinemas 15th March 2013.


SIDE EFFECTS is a provocative thriller about Emily and Martin (Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum), a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new drug prescribed by Emily’s psychiatrist (Jude Law) – intended to treat anxiety – has unexpected side effects.



The second poster comes from a film a little more dark and unsettling, Park Chan-Wook’s Stoker, and here we get a harsh warning “do not disturb the family”. Judging by the new poster, is this really a family you would want to get on the wrong side of?

Stoker is directed by Park Chan-Wook, and is based on a screenplay written by Wentworth Miller. The excellent cast includes Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode, Dermot Mulroney, Lucas Till and Jackie Weaver. Expect to see Stoker in UK cinemas 1st March 2013.


India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) was not prepared to lose her father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in a tragic auto accident. The solitude of her woodsy family estate, the peace of her tranquil town, and the unspoken somberness of her home life are suddenly upended by not only this mysterious accident, but by the sudden arrival of her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), India thinks the void left by her father’s death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline. Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives. Yet instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless young woman becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
