Warner Home Entertainment has announced that the thriller CONTAGION, starring Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law and John Hawkes, will be released on Blu-ray January 3, 2012. CONTAGION follows a few individuals as a deadly virus reaches epidemic proportions and starts wiping out millions of people. The film is a great study of human interaction as well as human reaction, and is a fascinating story of man trying to fight against an invisible enemy given to us by director Steven Soderbergh.
I recently watched this film and found it quite disturbing on several levels. It’s a very, very good movie but I would not recommend watching it with or recommending it to anyone who has any degree of germ-a-phobia. I promise you that this will freak them out and you will have to stock up on hand sanitizer and bottled water. With that in mind, definitely give this one a watch because you will not be disappointed. Special Features include three behind-the-scenes featurettes: Contagion: How a Virus Changes the World, The Reality of Contagion and The Contagion Detectives.
