The first trailer for director Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller Side Effects has been released.  Rooney Mara stars as a troubled young woman who develops a dangerous love triangle between her doctor (Jude Law) and her newly paroled husband (Channing Tatum).  It’s tough to get a grasp on exactly what the film’s about from this trailer, but I was sold the minute I heard “Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller.”  The film also reunites the filmmaker with his Contagion screenwriter Scott Z. Burns.  Mara’s proven herself to be an incredibly strong actress, and it appears we may get some intense performances from her, Tatum, and Law.  Moreover, Side Effects may or may not be Soderbergh’s second-to-last film ever, as the Liberace biopic Behind the Candleabra is the only other film the director is set to release for the foreseeable future.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Catherine Zeta-JonesSide Effects opens on February 8th.

Here’s the synopsis for Side Effects:

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.
