Contagion – Trailer
Bear with me here for a few minutes. Yes, this movie is almost a scene for scene copy of the 1995 classic Outbreak but before you discount it so quickly, realize that it’s being directed by Steven Soderbergh and features a huge cast of great actors and actresses.
Some lady (Gwyneth Paltrow) is married to some guy (Matt Damon) who ends up getting sick from a new disease that has the capability of quickly becoming a species extinction event. People die, it’s going to be a bummer, but I’m down for a film that has not only Damon and Paltrow die somewhat early in the film, but also has Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, and Kate Winslet as potential sacrifices. I love just about any project that Fishburne and Law take part of and let’s also face facts that Soderburgh knows how to make some gripping pieces of film.
This may not be a in-theater watch for me, but it definitely will go on the Netflix or RedBox queue for sure. The film is out on September 9th.
