You never know what you’re going to get with Steven Soderbergh. He’s a chameleon, someone just as happy to do a project that cost ten dollars as a hundred million. And he likes to work. Even though he’s mentioned retirement, Contagion came out in September theatrically, and four months later his Haywire is coming out. Contagion stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Ehle in what amounts to a disaster film about a new virus that starts a pandemic. It may also be the best disaster film ever made. Our review of Contagion on Blu-ray follows after the jump.
Warner Bros. has unloaded a massive number of images from Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming star-studded thriller Contagion. The film centers on the global impact of a deadly virus outbreak, showcasing the ensemble cast that includes Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Lawrence Fishbourne and Bryan Cranston. We debuted the chillingly great character posters a few weeks back, and these images give us our first look at Elliott Gould, John Hawkes and Demitri Martin in their supporting roles, as well as a number of shots of Soderbergh in action.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Contagion opens in IMAX and regular screens September 9th.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for director Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, and it’s slightly terrifying. The film centers on a deadly virus outbreak, and at the beginning of the trailer the whole thing seems kinda silly (see: 1995’s Outbreak), but then the enormity of it hits and…well, you’ll see. With this being one of Soderbergh’s last efforts before retirement, combined with the incredible cast he’s assembled, Contagion has the makings of a fantastic thriller. This one was already high on my “most-anticipated” list, but after this trailer it has definitely jumped up towards the top.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Lawrence Fishbourne, Bryan Cranston, Demitri Martin and Elliott Gould. Contagion opens September 9th.
