The trailer for Steven Soderbergh's psychological thriller "Side Effects" (previously titled "The Bitter Pill") has landed, and looks to be characteristically taut and engrossing. Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones star.

Mara is the focus of the film, playing Emily Hawkins, a young woman unhinged by husband Tatum's return home from prison. As she increases her daily medication to cope with her life's return to "normalcy," things take a dangerous turn for the worse. Law plays her doctor, who may be taking liberties with his attractive and unstable patient.

Soderbergh's self-imposed sabbatical from films is reportedly nigh -- he claims that as of January 2013, he'll "turn into a pumpkin." Let's hope that by 2014 he refinds his Fairy Godmother.

"Side Effects" opens February 8, 2013.
