Movies — er, "cinema" — might not matter so much to director Steven Soderbergh these days, but judging by this new trailer for "Behind the Candelabra," a film he's been putting together for years and which will finally debut on HBO next month, he's still quite cozy in the director's chair.
The cable network released a first trailer for the film, which adapts the memoir of Liberace's lover-slash-chauffeur Scott Thorson, "My Life with Liberace," and it's absolutely gorgeous. Get More »
Steven Soderbergh has been one of the most prolific filmmakers of all time. He's also one of the most predictable, balancing out big studio projects like "Ocean's Eleven" and Oscar darlings like "Traffic" with low-budget personal experiments like "Bubble" and "The Girlfriend Experience." He's even got a knack for in-between audience-pleasers like "Magic Mike" and "The Informant!"
With a filmography this eclectic, it may be hard to figure out what Steven Soderbergh movie is right for you (if you had to, you know, pick just one). Upon the release of what appears to be his last theatrical film, "Side Effects," we've conjured a handy-dandy flowchart that may help you find that perfect Soderbergh fit.

Channing Tatum is looking to quit this whole acting business ... for a year, anyway.
The "Magic Mike" star will take a break from being in front of the camera to concentrate on being behind the camera in 2013, according to an interview with Inside Movies. Tatum is looking to take the time to focus on his directorial debut with his production partner, Reid Carolin.
"[Reid and I] have about three to four ideas that we love that are all in the hopper. By the end of next year, we're going to shut things down and write the first thing that we're going to direct," said Tatum, "We’re going to be like, all right, no more acting parts for a minute, let's take a few and really get caring about that section of our career."

One of the side effects of being as hot as Channing Tatum is right now is that you start getting offered more film and more interesting films. Once you've proven you're a star, after all, people want to start working with you.
Case in point: The new trailer for "Side Effects," which lets Tatum flex his serious acting muscles as well as his serious muscle muscles. Get More »
This week: Before he became an actor, Channing Tatum worked as a male stripper, which inspired Steven Soderbergh to direct "Magic Mike," a behind-the-scenes look at a troupe of male strippers taking it off nightly at a club in Florida.
Also new this week is the self-explanatory horror thriller "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," the sweet-natured apocalyptic romance "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" and a definitive anniversary edition of "Blade Runner" on Blu-ray. Get More »
When the male stripper drama, "Magic Mike," danced into theaters earlier this summer, we're not sure anyone anticipated what a success — both critically and commercially — it would be. (The flick earned a whopping $113 million domestically off a production budget of only $7 million). As to be expected, when Hollywood has a hit on its hands, it gets started on the sequel pretty much right away.
But with Steven Soderbergh insisting (at least for now) that he's taking a hiatus from filmmaking, there's an empty seat where the director should be. Queue music: enter Channing Tatum. Get More »
Channing Tatum is cashing in on his younger glory days as a stripper in Florida with the semi-autobiographical film "Magic Mike."
Academy Award-winner Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic," "Ocean's Eleven") directs this scintillating (or is that skintillating?) inside look at the Xquisite strip club where Magic Mike Martingano (Tatum) takes a young rookie called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing while trying to spread his own wings with The Kid's sister. Matthew McConaughey costars as club owner/impresario Dallas along with a whole stable of purebred beefcake. Get More »
Sorry, everyone — the men of "Magic Mike" didn't wear their costumes (or lack of them) to their big Hollywood premiere.
Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey and other "adult entertainers" kept it all on as they walked the red carpet in celebration of director Steven Soderbergh's modern-day fable about male strippers. While not much skin was shown, there were still plenty of prime photo ops.
Stick a virtual dollar bill into the underpants of our collection of premiere pics, and get down with "Magic Mike" when it opens in theaters on June 29.
