Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, a star-packed, globe-spanning drama about the fight to contain a fast-moving new strain of a disease, opens Friday. Our review will go online most likely on Thursday night.
For now, here is the trailer for the movie, which stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Lawrence Fishburne, Kate Winslett and Marian Cotillard.
Studio Synopsis: An international traveler reaches into the snack bowl at an airport bar before passing her credit card to a waiter. A business meeting begins with a round of handshakes. A man coughs on a crowded bus…
One contact. One instant. And a lethal virus is transmitted…A global pandemic explodes.
As the death toll escalates and people struggle to protect themselves and their loved ones in a society breaking down, one activist blogger (Jude Law) claims the public isn’t getting the truth about what’s really going on, and sets off an epidemic of paranoia and fear as infectious as the virus itself.
