Warner Bros. has released the first teaser poster for Contagion, a thriller directed by Steven Soderbergh. The script by Scott Z. Burns (The Informant!) tracks a lethal airborne virus: “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.” The stylish design lists the various metropolises that will be destroyed by the outbreak in accordance with the international scope promised by the tagline: “The world goes viral September 9.” Personally, I was already infected by the trailer.
The all-star cast features Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Lawrence Fishbourne, Bryan Cranston, Demitri Martin, and Elliott Gould. See the full poster after the jump.
