The Talent: Matt Damon, Vera Farmiga, director Steven Soderbergh
The Pitch: Soderbergh decides to take a psychedelic, brain-troubling approach to the story of a man (Damon) who is critically afraid of going in to have his tonsils out.
We follow him under anesthetic as he has a trippy, crazed adventure through his own body, constantly fearing for his organs at the hands of a mad surgeon.
The only thing that can save him is the love of his wife (Farmiga). And his nose, which burns bright red when he's in danger.
The Cost: $30 million. Soderbergh promises to bring it in on budget, and just about succeeds.
The Box Office: $100 million worldwide.
