Trying To Get Better In The Worst Way

Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jude Law star in the upcoming thriller Side Effects, the final theatrical production from Steven Soderbergh. The medicine wasn't supposed to do this...

Open Roads Films has just released the latest poster for its upcoming psychological thriller Side Effects, and it has us champing at the bit. Although the dark role is nothing new for Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), this will be a fresh and trying portrayal for Channing Tatum.

Side Effects is the final film from director/producer Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, A Scanner Darkly) and as the title implies, the movie explores the unintended consequences of a new prescription anxiety drug.

Emily Hawkins (Mara) just wanted to get better. Her nerves were consuming her from within concerning the upcoming release of her husband from prison, but the pills her psychiatrist (Jude Law) gives her send her on a downward spiral no one saw coming.

Her upscale New York life gets thrown into a world of violence and mystery and the drug, Ablixa, has made her the central pawn in it all. From the looks of the trailer, this is packed full of love, lust, danger, murder, evasion and twisted motivations that will surely move the film into a climactic realm.

Side Effects hits theaters Feb. 8, so be sure to check back here at SheKnows for all your news leading up to the premiere!
