We are always interested in the latest Steven Soderbergh offering, no matter how opaque. I think Side Effects is about pharmacology and sexiness, but I know I want to see it. It seems as if the story centers on the too-perfect couple from the unnerving pharmaceutical ad (played by Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum) whose life falls into shambles if you explore any deeper than their 30-second bliss.
We are proud to premiere a new TV spot for Side Effects, which doesn’t shed much more light on the plot specifics, but continues to highlight the appeal. Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones also star in Side Effects, set for release on February 8. Watch the spot after the jump.
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.
