‘Side Effects’ Trailer Puts the Crazy in Crazy Pills
In ‘Side Effects,’ Rooney Mara plays a young woman who seeks the help of a therapist and prescription medication to deal with the anxiety brought on by her husband’s impending release from prison. Everything is fine at first, but then those pesky side effects kick in (or do they?), and someone winds up dead. And maybe she’s obsessed with her therapist? There’s definitely something sexy and twisted going on, judging by the shot of Rooney Mara’s thigh and Jude Law‘s eyes bugging out of his head.
The film looks like a total mind-bang — is Rooney Mara crazy? Is her therapist an evil jerk? What is Catherine Zeta-Jones up to, anyway? Soderbergh’s films are insightful and daring, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store with ‘Side Effects.’
Co-starring Channing Tatum, ‘Side Effects’ hits theaters on February 8, just in time for Valentine’s Day, to let that special someone know you think they’re totally bonkers. It’s also rumored to be Soderbergh’s last film, so definitely make this one a priority.
Check out the official second trailer below, which seems (somehow) much darker than the first:
