First Trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Contagion
07.14.11 by Ryan
Director Steven Soderbergh may still be planning to retire, but he's not going quietly.
The first trailer and poster for Soderbergh's thriller Contagion has arrived online, and proves it is a serious and potentially frightening movie. Outbreak, this isn't. Written by Scott Burns (The Bourne Ultimatum, The Informant!), Contagion has a huge ensemble cast, including Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Laurence Fishburne. From the looks of the trailer, the movie is going to need a big cast, since the lethal, airborne virus already claims one of the actors by the middle of the trailer.
Originally set to open on October 22, Contagion now opens on September 9. Bryan Cranston, Demetri Martin, Jennifer Ehle and Elliott Gould co-star.
