New ‘Side Effects’ Trailer Reveals More of Rooney Mara’s Issues
'Side Effects,' Steven Soderbergh's alleged final film before retirement, already debuted multiple trailers featuring looks at the Rooney Mara- and Channing Tatum-led cast. The footage itself has been sort of a precursor mini-thriller in that we're left wondering whether our 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' is crazy or her seemingly iffy therapist (Jude Law) has something to do with it. Well, now the plot thickens with more confusion as the new UK international trailer has debuted, revealing more bits of the story.
In 'Side Effects,' Mara's character falls into a depression following her husband's unceremonious imprisonment. Now that he's released, she's trying to move on with her life, though the issues remain the same. In steps Jude Law, her therapist who attempts to ease her recovery with medication. What ensues is a drama storm, including the prescription's insane "side effects," a presumed sexual element involving the good therapist, and even death.
The new 'Side Effects' trailer, recently released in the UK via The Guardian, attempts to help us figure things out for ourselves with its new plot-revealing footage. Though, it seems like once we think we've worked it all out, another element steps in to confuse us more. All in all, we're excited to see how this psychological thriller unfolds when the film hits theaters on February 8.
