Contagion: Preview & TrailerPosted: July 14, 2011
There have been numerous pandemics and health scares in the past, with many fearing that they would catch a life-threatening disease going around. Contagion, directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve & Thirteen), sees the world-wide outbreak of a deadly disease that can be caught merely through contact. The virus spreads across the whole planet, killing masses of humans in just days. A team of medics is all that stands between the mutating virus, and the certain death of the human population.
With a great cast, consisting of Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gywneth Paltrow & Jude Law, this movie seems promising. Also starring, are more top actors, including Laurence Fishburne, John Hawkes and Marion Cotillard (who starred in Inception and is in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises). Comedian, Demetri Martin, also appears to be part of the cast, too, and although I’m not sure what he’ll be doing in the movie, he is a favourite comedian of mine, so that’s a plus. Check out the trailer for this sci-fi/action-thriller below:
So, what do you think? Is this a future classic, or just another mediocre movie to be added to the pile? Share your opinions with us. Contagion, is set to hit to hit US theatres on the 9th September, and is released in the UK on the 21st October.
