It’s probably not too much of an exaggeration to say that Warner Bros. has just dumped every single image they have from Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” onto the masses. Okay, so there may be one or two stills hiding inside a desk somewhere, but man, they really put out a lot of them today. Over 60+ images, in fact. Feeling a little infected yet? You have plenty of time. The film feels like an old fashioned disaster movie, one of those 1970s throwbacks of “Airport” and “The Towering Inferno”. It certainly doesn’t lack for a star-studded A-list ensemble cast, that’s for damn sure.
“Contagion” follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
The all-star ensemble cast includes Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bryan Cranston, Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, Jennifer Ehle, and Sanaa Lathan.
