Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” has one heck of a cast. I guess that’s what happens when you’re Steven Soderbergh, and you have a reputation for making actors look really good even when there are a dozen of them all fighting for screentime. He did manage to turn one heist movie into three films with the “Ocean’s” movies, after all. Soderberghs’ latest Hollywood ensemble drama is “Contagion”, an action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak.
The powerhouse cast includes Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bryan Cranston, Jude Law, and Laurence Fishburne. Too bad he couldn’t get Clooney to do a cameo.

We will of course swap the poor quality video with the proper trailer when it hits. Until then, this will have to do: HD version below.
