I do love the PR bits and bobs we get sent, sometimes they come in handy, sometimes they make you laugh but I think my favourite form of PR freebies are the ones that fill you up! Today we received this rather interesting prescription bottle filled with pill (or more accurately Skittles – at least I hope they were Skittles) with the warning about Side Effects on the side. Clever those marketing people aren’t they!
As well as the bottle of pills was a memory stick with the following exclusive TV spot attached and it would have been rude not to share it with you! Side Effects is released in the UK 15th March and is the latest from legendary director Steven Soderbergh. He’s brought back together some of the people he worked with recently on Haywire and Contagion to bring us a movie which stars Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
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.
