Soderbergh’s CONTAGION Trailer Infects The Net
July 15, 2011
Today saw the official online Warner Bros release of Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion trailer, the upcoming action/horror thriller starring Matt Damon (I must add, sporting a new wavy fro) amongst others fighting off a deadly Outbreak-esque disease which is spreading across the world at a rapid speed. Along for the ride are Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Bryan Cranston and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Our very own Phillip Aram wrote an article earlier this week on the power of the trailer and as you can see below, this one doesn’t disappoint. Gwyneth Paltrow plays the catalyst of the piece popping it less than 60 seconds in, obviously not a major spoiler here then, with Soderbergh going on to tease us with glimpses of society cracking under the fear of the outbreak, the army getting involved and doctors frantically looking for a cure.
It’s basically a unglamourised look at a globe disaster virus. Our worst fears of SARS or Bird Flu fully realised.
