First trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion unleashed

“Your wife is dead”

contagion

The first trailer for director Steven Soderbergh’s virus thriller Contagion has been unleashed online.

Far from simply promising us Outbreak II: The Virus Strikes Back, Soderbergh’s film instead appears to be a terrifyingly realistic portrayal of a deadly epidemic.

With no less than six massive A-list names involved (and some stellar support), Contagion looks sort of like a Roland Emmerich epic if Roland Emmerich made taut, pulse-raising indies.

Tracking the progress of a lethal airborne virus, Contagion stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Lawrence Fishbourne, Bryan Cranston, Demitri Martin and Elliott Gould.

Check out the trailer below…

Contagion opens 21 October.

      Ha, yeah apart from Jude Law (who is pretty rubbish in most things) it looks pretty good. Nice to see Laurence Fishburne acting properly again, although I find him very entertaining in Predators (guilty pleasure of mine).
