Break out your hazmat suits, folks, because there’s a super-virus out to ruin everyone’s day! At least, that’s the case in Steven Soderbergh’s new movie Contagion. I don’t think I need to go into much more detail than that, actually, since the notion of an incurable plague wiping out humanity is a pretty scary one in and of itself, but I will mention the amazing cast that this movie is sporting. Matt Damon, Gwenyth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, Bryan Cranston and John Hawkes will all be appearing, and apparently that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’m a fan of Soderbergh’s work, and the premise is positively chilling, so here’s hoping this movie turns out awesome. I’d be surprised if it didn’t, frankly. Now, if you need me, I’ll be inside my clean room.
Contagion comes out September 9, 2011.
