Contagion Preview

Contagion is the new action-thriller by Steven Soderbergh with an all-star cast, starring Matt Damon, Gweneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Bryan Cranston, Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, Elliot Gould, and Sanna Lathan.  Contagion is about the outbreak of a deadly mutating virus and the worldwide pandemonium that follows.  The movie is centered around a team of doctors working with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to contain the outbreak.  It seems to be a better version of the 90's film Outbreak, sans the Dustin Hoffman euphemisms.  Contagion is set for wide release September 9th.

  1. I love Gwyneth Paltrow and the CDC so, seems like a great movie to check out. It does seem similar to the movie Outbreak but I'm willing to give it a try anyway.

  2. Yep, definitely seems similar to Outbreak. If only the virus made people rabid, then we'd have a horror movie.

  5. In these times is just a horror film on epidemics. The last two films of Soderbergh i've seen are the two "What", but i particularly like "Kafka" in 1991 (in Italy "Delitti e segreti").
    Come mai parli italiano? Io invece parlo male l'inglese! :D

  6. I hear ya on the zombies, but Contagion has to be better than Outbreak. TWD will be back this October and I've never wanted summer to get over with already like this before.

    Ah, il mio italiano non è così buono. Non lasciatevi ingannare. :) Ho studiato l'opera ad un certo punto. Grande opera è sempre in italiano!

    Translation for everyone else:

    Ha, my Italian is not so good. Don't be fooled. :) I studied opera at some point. Great opera is always in Italian!

  9. @Sean-- Yes, Outbreak was very close to being a b-movie. Contagion has to be better. I was just watching a snipet of TWD last night. I read all of the graphic novels as well.

    Has a new one come out yet?

  10. @Sub-Radar-Mike-- I completely agree. Matt never disappoints. I was just watching the Borne Ultimatium last night. Great stuff. :)
